millhouse...I like your setup now, why change or at least save for something that may go wrong down the line or when you upgrade to 33's than make the switch, but hats off your Jeep looks awesome now!

I had american racing rims with 31's previously and as I noticed that they were getting dinged up from wheeling I upgraded to 33's and got my cragars for 30 a piece. I mean for what I use my rig for thats the best fit for me. They still look good cuz I incorporated the red/black theme and they were cheap. Expensive rims are nice, don't get me wrong but damn it's a Jeep like I care bout her but she's meant for one thing only and this to go wheeling and get beat up out there.
Here's the before and after with the diff rim.tire setups..

If I wanted a Hummer I'd call your girlfriend
