OK, so I freely admit I'm not going off roading with the exception of crossing from the freeway to the service road in event of an accident holding me up from work ! ...... BUT ... I want to lift my 2dr Wrangler .. It's a Black Bear.
Here's what I was looking at:
Zone 3" lift
7 x 9 -12mm wheels
315/70/17 tires ..
Will this work ?
Basically, I want bigger tires, light wheels so it looks good, but doesn't kill my mpg.
Also, if I go with aluminum wheels, will the extra weight of the tire necessitate a new rear bumper/wheel carrier or can I get away with stock ?
I'm thinking weight and size will mean getting new bumper/tire carrier, but I'm on a serious bufget, so need to be sure of what I need/cost.
Any/all advice appreciated.
