your TIRE size is needed. this will help determine the wheel choice due to different backspacing.

Ion-3.75" BS.........pretty much whatever you want

Ravine- 5.25" BS......10.50 wide tire max. w/ steering stop adjustment. under 10.50 wide, no issues

Get the ravines. 3.75 backing spacing will look goofy on a stock jeep with stock tires.

Yeah they will stick out a good 2 inches more on each side and with the tiny tires it looks funky.

ravines would look better on a gold xj imo and has better backspacing for what you need

93 XJ, ~5", longarmed, 35" BFG's, stock gas tank skid, Skidrow transfer case skid, JCR stage 2 sliders, TNT stiffeners, TNT otk steering, SYE, durango steering box w/ MORE brace and C-Rok plate. To be installed - D44 w/ Teraflex disks getting Aussie locked front and rear with 4.88's

Ravines are very nice, but I'm kinda partial to the TJ Canyons since I bought some. I do like the Ravines better than the ION rims. IMHO

The ZJ canyons are better I think. I think they have less backspacing.

The ZJ Canyons are only available in 15x7 and backspacing is 5.25" (i think) whereas the TJ Canyons are 15x8 with 5.5" backspacing.

The Ravines are really plain and kinda generic to me because so many manufacturers make stock wheels like that, but the style of the Black Ions has been done to death around here too. Black wheel with circle holes - I've seen that look a hundred times at least. I think they're both VERY conservative choices and you should get wheels that haven't been used on hundreds of Jeeps already.
