Rims/ Tires

I'm not sure if there is already a thread about this but I've been looking for tires and rims for a few months now and I can't decide which sizes and brands I wanna get so write the size of your tire and rim or the ones you think I should get .. I have a bone stock 1999 Cherokee in black .. Soon I'm li lifting it but I wanted to buy tires first .. I want black rims and purple accents

Try posting in the "Jeep picture request" section in the General forum. That's where this post belongs....

What size lift are you getting is a major factor.

Trimming fenders or not?

As for that specific tire, I would get crager d-windows, and order purple pin stripe online, then apply it to your wheels.

4.5" either 32s or 33s. Though you should probably trim.

This is 4.5" on 33s untrimmed, a good bit of rubbing at full lock when I didn't have spacers on the wheels.



This is after I trimmed the fronts.

I am defiantly going to cut into the fenders and I already know I want 33s I just don't know what brand I should look for

Getting MT/Rs myself here soon. Definitely check out tire buyer, they do free shipping and most the tires come with like $80 rebates on a set of 4.

I'd suggest getting wheels from Summit Racing too. I paid a less from them than ordering from any of the big Jeep sites, got free shipping, and they got here here less than 48 hours after ordering and I'd ordered at like 11 PM and they had shipped them out the next morning before 9 am.

Skinny tires suck, most companies don't make tires in a 33x10.5. If you want skinnier than a 12.5 you can find them in an 11.5 from most companies. There's 33x13.5 but I don't think anybody makes them any wheel size smaller than 17.
