2012 Wrangler Unlimited stock upgrade
I purchased a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Sport in August 2012. I got the most basic package and I want to upgrade from the 16in. wheels and tires that barely fill out the jeep. I'm possibly looking for a bigger rim, maybe 17in. and a bigger size tire to help fill out the jeep and make it a little more aggressive looking. All while keeping in mind I dont use the vehicle for off-roading and most of the miles are commuting to work via highways. So I would need a tire that is practical yet bigger than what I currently have. Being a new jeep owner and new to this forum... any suggestions?

You can also look around in the forsale section and see about a set of either Rubicon or Sahara take offs. those will have the larger wheel you are looking for and also have a little bigger tire.
If you want a good tire for the street, you will want to look for an All-Terrain tire. There are a few really good A/T's out there, such as the BFG All-Terrain. It will last forever and behave great on the road. If those seem to aggressive for you, look at the Toyo Open Country All-Terrain. Again, they will be great on the street and give you the look you are going for.
Hope this helps, shoot me a PM if you need any other help!
Definitely look into a new wheel and tire package. The stock 16" wheels are narrow and have a high offset that tucks deep into the fenders. If you want to stick with a 16" wheel, look for a wheel that is 16x8.5 with a -6mm offset (4.5" backspace) and a 285/75R16. This tire size will bolt right up without any modifications and will fill the wheel wells nicely. As for tires, there are a lot of great options in the 285/75R16 but I would recommend looking at an all terrain. The Falken Rocky Mountain ATS II has a 50,000 mile warranty and it does great on and off road.
