What rims should I get?

Hi, this is my first post in this forum and I have a quick question. I have an emerald green 1996 jeep cherokee and I am looking into giving it a 3" lift with 31" bfg all terrains. I would also like to get a new set of rims to replace the stock steel ones. I would like to keep the price under $100 per rim. Any suggestions?

You coul always go with Kragar soft 8's or similar steelies for 55-60 a wheel. Check on amazon for a deal every now and then.

Ravines or Canyons, or any other stock Jeep 15 x 8 aluminum wheel.

Those are stock Wrangler TJ 15 x 8 aluminum wheels and are ideal for putting 31 x 10.5 R15 on a TJ or XJ.

Those are ideal, and are often found used for great prices.

Check Ebay, Craigslist, Amazon, and this forum's classified section for used stock wheels at low prices. However, no way to really know condition of a used wheel until you see it. So best to buy local and visually inspect before buying, if possible.

Also use Google to find Websites that sell them new and used.

Go to some junk yards and check Craigslist. There are plenty of ravines out there, but Ive been hunting for 16" Moabs for months. Im going to be running the same setup, 3" lift and 31's on stock wheels. Looks clean in my eyes.

All of the stock alloy wheels look alot better on XJ's then TJ's i think. I got a set of gambler style tj wheels for my wife's xj, they look awesome. $150 for the set of 5.
