Not sure if you are trolling....but just keep it stock.

If you do some research and find out what the overall diameter of your tires are then you can answer this question yourself.

Also, you will not get much love from this forum for going low pro on the tires. There are not many people here who like the look at all and will give you crap for it. Im struggling with it myself especially considering how easy this information is to come by with just a little bit of work on your part.

If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.

Troll! but in case you're a young kid about to make a big mistake. Why would you buy the most capable off-road factory vehicle made and then cut off it's balls and put diapers on it.

So, while I agree with the sentiment of my fellow JF members, I have a different take on this issue in general...

My personal tastes are not for mall crawlers or street Jeeps either, BUT;

I also never buy new. When it comes time for me to buy, i'm looking for a low mileage, street driven pavement queen. The LAST thing I want is a 'trail proven' rock-rashed, rev'd-out, mud filled trail Jeep.

I can respect and appreciate everyone who uses their Jeep to the full potential, and I know there are a few who use AND take care of their rigs...but I am also happy that a few DON'T, so that there are some decent used Jeeps left in the future.

Just my 2-bits

Visit the street jeep forum where you can get some sympathy from those similarly affected with this malady.

There are a lot of disconnects with your statement.

20" rims on 35's don't look bad at all IMO. But when you say you are street riding only....what is the point of a 2.5" lift? I'm assuming you are going up in wheel size because a 2.5" lift with 20" rims that will result in 55 series tires (to stay at 32 inches) is going to look......well.....silly. But if you are street riding only....there is no point in gong up in wheel size....so I'm assuming you are not going to 35's.

You see the conundrum?

I'm a mall crawler, not an off-roader.....so my advice to you would be to stay stock for multiple reasons. There is no need to spin $3000-$5000 on a lift, rims, and tires (and maybe a new tire carrier, a re-gear, and all the other stuff that comes with lifts and heavy wheels) just to drive to Starbucks.

At a minimum, skip the lift, and don't go higher than 18" rims if you will be street only.

Jeep - It's a Jeep thing...you wouldn't understand.
Triumph - Go your own way.

That setup will be fine on a 2.5" lift.

If I were a Buddhist, I'd think your Jeep must've been Hilter in a past life

To truly appreciate Obamacare, you should be not working, undocumented and given it for free.

I just took a set of 20" Moto Metal Punisher (Skull) Wheels with Toyo Proxes 255/50 R20s off my wifes 07 unlimited. They fit fine with no lift at all and no rubbing. She just didn't like the look. I have them for sale if you near Oh and looking for a deal.

I wouldn't get A/T if you don't plan on even going offroad. It'll probably ride better and be more fuel efficient if you get a nice set of street tires. Also, I would get some 20" black SRT8 replicas. OE Wheels has them at a good price and they look so nice. I really want some later on.
