15 or 17" wheels.....the long term opinion
Yes I did a search but still have questions.
My current setup is a 05 Rubicon LJ that has 17 JK wheels on it (from PO). Short term I want to get some 33" tires on it and then long term (2years) put 35's on it. I want to buy one set of wheels and be done with it. Here are my points/questions.
1 - Short term the 15's look good but it looks like there are starting to be less and less of a section of 15" tires. I could be wrong about this but just seems that way from my searching
2 - This is my DD, maybe hit the trail 1 time a month and am no means hardcore. With 17" wheels I would have an easer time balancing and keeping them in check on the road. 15" would be better off road with more sidewall flex
3 - Really 16" would be a good comprise but there is not much out there tire wise
4 - Long long term I have been thinking about doing a vanco brake kit and these require a 16" or larger. Not sure I will need or do this but I like the option of being able to do so.
5 - 15" are a lot cheaper......
So what is your feedback on this?
