Howdy Forum! I just bought my first Jeep, 2000 Cherokee Sport XJ. 120k miles. Got it for a song on EBay and just got the mechanic's bill which explains why. So, now I have 4 new brakes, 4 new Skyjacker shocks, New tailgate struts, New O2 sensors, All new fluids, New Muffler, just put in new H4 Rampage headlights too...and my wheels and tires look kinda old and not as badass as I want them to.
I have a 3.5" Rough Country lift from the prior owner.
Currently running Yokohama Geolanders 31x10.5 R15 on the stock steel wheels.
I'd like to get black rims something like the Crager Black D wheels. Any good recommendations on wheel/tire size?
Should I go for 16" or 17" wheels on the upgrade? Which width would be best? What's the best/largest wheel tire combo I can do on a 3.5" lift? I like the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires and can get them in the same size as current. I really need snow/ice traction with these, less so mud.
Would love to see some pics of different combos too. VERY OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS!
Jeep is black with silver accent line. Anyone see any tires with red letters? Or wheels with red accents? Does it look good? Bad?
Can't wait to mod this rig!
