    33 tires 17 rims?

    I've got a stock 2 door Jeep JL Wrangler Sport. No a/c (later), and it has stock tires of 245/75 r17 (I think 17x9).

    I know I can put 33" tires on my rims, but will they be good? I'm mainly going to do some dirt roads and off-road flat/ bumpy Earth trails. Would 18" rims be better? It's only an inch!

    What benefit do wider tires have?

    Factory Rubicons come with 33" tires on 17" rims. You'll be fine.

    33s will do just fine. I have the 33 stock Jl rubicon setup on my Jl sport and its been okay for dirt and some small rock trails. And 18s are cool but no one does 18s. You can get a used like new set of 17s for cheap. Stock tires that is. And as far as wider tires. Wide tires are better depending on the type of off road your doing. The widest Iv personally ever ran was 12.5. But there are some guys who run 13.5 up to 15.5. But back to the main question 33s will be fine for your setup. IMG_4038.jpg
