New Wheels (literally!)

I just replaced the 17' stock wheels/tires on My WK2 with a set of nice 20' Wired wheels with lexani tires that match the stock 20' size. The ride is much better with the 20's and it makes the jeep look a whole lot better imo.:D

Look great. You got all the toys, just like that insurance company TV ad.

Looks Good. I just replaced my 18s with 20s and it makes a world of difference.

Curious, how does wheel size change affect the ride (17 >> 20)? Wall stiffness?

Ir rides smoother and it handles the curves better without as much body roll since there is less tire to flex. I defiantly can tell the difference coming from 17's. I was going to get the stock 20' Laredo x or overland wheels but i saw this set at my local tire shop and i thought it would make make my jeep stand out a little without being obnoxious. ;)

Some more pics of the wheels/tires and my jeep.:D The jeep rides and drives great and the tires really hold the road in bad weather.
