Tire/Wheel help

Hi all,
I have read all your threads,

I have a question on purchasing tires and wheels. Please understand that I'm absolutely clueless about vehicles so the questions i ask may be stupid to yal but totally make sense to me. LOL.... Ok,,, So
I have a 2009 Jeep wrangler 4WD that I'm going to have a 2 1/2 inch lift put on. I want to by the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO tires. I want to by a Black wheel that is 17x9 5-127 15MTB. Of course the tires need to be a 17, I understand that. My question is how do I know if a certain tire will work on a certain wheel. All the numbers confuse me. Does it mean that If I buy the LT265/70R 17C1 112R tire, it will fit the wheels I want. In a short, How do i match the right tire to the right wheel.

LT265/70-17C

LT = Light Truck
265 = Width in millimeters
70 = Height of tire is 70% of the width from the bead to tread
17 = Tire is made for a 17" wheel
C = Tire is load range C, which is the equivalent of a 6 ply tire

Since you have 17" wheels, and this tire is made for 17" wheels you will be in great shape.

Also, that wheel you mentioned is 17" diameter and 9" wide with 4.5" of backspacing so it will fit your Wrangler perfect and will look awesome...but...a 265 width tire is going to look goofy on a 9" wide wheel. I'd recommend going with a narrower wheel or a wider tire. You want the tread width and wheel width to be really close for the best wear and look. A 265 width tire only has 8" of tread width, but the 17x9 wheel is going to be about 10" wide in total. So it's just going to look odd.

Why limit yourself to those two?

Have look at Cooper AT3, Hercules AT2, and Hankook ATM.

I personally think those are better on road than Duratrac, and better on and off road than BFG AT.

The Cooper AT3 and Hercules AT2 cost less too.

I haven't seen this one on here yet, but the General Grabber Red Letter. They've just started making a 33x10.5 version too if you have stock wheels. I've just gotten a set for on-road and basic use; I have Interco Boggers for mud. Oddly enough, you wouldn't really think they'd be a good tire in the wet, but I can't get them to slip or break traction and it's been raining and storming like crazy up here. Only downsides to these are weight, they're almost as heavy as the Boggers and they're radials. I don't rotate my tires at all and the last set of BFG ATs lasted around 45k mi.

^^^ Yes, the weight is horrendous on the Red Letters and that is why they make a terrible choice for anybody who drives on the street. I was at a 4Wheel Parts store this summer and they had a Red Letter in the 31x10.50 version mounted to a 15" steel wheel on display. I tried to pick it up and it felt like it was still attached to a Jeep.

Absolutely ridiculous for anything other than 80% offroad use. I would never ever put that on a daily driver.

Oh lord, another can of worms right there. What do you like? Chrome, black, white, polished. Steel/alloy. Beadlock, no beadlock. Price limit. What look are you going for? Many things to consider.

oops, sorry, LOL..... I'm looking for black rims, about 200 in price, I would like to say something else about them but i can't. I guess i just wanted to know what would be the best to go with and if I want black is there a special kind that i could try to get so it wont get all scratch up or whether the paint chips off of them. I dont know. LOL....
