weighing my options, 20's V.S. 18's
 
SO... i'm planning to lift the jeep 2" and stick 32" AT's under it....

now the question of the YEAR for me is....

black SRT reps, or black 18's.

i'm pretty sure i want to stick with black on black...on black...

but i just cant figure out what i want! haha

I'm thinking about a couple different tires...
Goodyear dura trac (pretty agressive and only for 18" rims)
Nitto terra grapplers (on either the 18 or 20)
Bridgestone Dueler AT REVO's (18 or 20)


ideas? thoughts?

side note: i used to be an offroader, i used to run 33's on 15" rims :lol:
i dont give a shit if offroaders will hate on AT's on a 20" rim, too bad... its not their truck, and i paid my offroad dues, my old jeep's body damage will attest to that.

18's look like 17's and a TOTAL waste---IMHO....20's with some sick tires would be.....well.....SICK!

20's FTMFW!

see thats what im thinking.... especially because im past the "meaty tire offroader look" i want some shine to this rig. (minus the chrome *bleh*)

here's a visual... you know the black SRT with black rims in the "all inclusive" medic hood thread?

imagine that... with a 2" lift and 32's

Definitely go with the black 20" SRT reps!!

Of the tires you have listed, I'd say the Grapplers, but why not the BFG's? I like the BFG AT's.

Lifted + 20's + meaty tires = bad ass!

You should have someone photo shop them for ya!

the tires i listed are $150-200 each...

BFG's for a 20" rim don't start until around 34" and are around $300 each:eek:

Ohhh, well that's a different story, haha. In that case I like the Nittos.

my main concern is that if i go with 20's and 32" tires, that they wont look right.

with a lift, and the already big ass body on the WK, will the 20's look like 17's?

some of the SRT's i've seen with certain color/rim finish choices already make the rims look small. Much less with a lift and meatier tires.

I think they will be sick and just a little taller than my setup. My setup is right at 30" I believe. 2" isnt that much more.....

When you do you should have someone photoshop it... it'd be worth to be sure you're spending 2k wisely.
