I like this, wish i would have seen this before I ordered my wheels.

God Rules!

I guess im not a bling kinda guy but some is ok..But is most important is what you like..Just try not to destroy it by putting bigger than 18's...To me you can have 22 inchers as long as its got 35 inch tire or bigger.

big rims on jeeps is not my style...but, i know a buddy of mine has 20" rims on his stock 01' XJ, and it rubs a little bit on the plastic endcaps up front...and if you take bumps pretty hard they can pop the flares off too...

Just chiming in, 3 years after the last response...!

On my DD XJ I put on 19" Dezents with a 255/50 tire (which is around 29 inches in diameter)

Here's how it looks:

Unfortunately I lose some acceleration (2.5L engine) and some turning radius (rubs a tiny bit at full lock) but I disregard that because I think the looks beat them!

And I got both rims and tires used so no I didn't spend a fortune. And please don't tell me about how I "ruined" a Cherokee by putting road tires on it. I have 2 XJs, here's the one I have just for wheeling.

I know 18"s from a 09 challenger fit and have IMO perfect spacing for the XJ! Starting to handle like a vehicle! Next up are beefy sway bars, frame stiffners, and some mods to help gas mileage. This is my DD, so dont hate too bad. lol.

**BTW I am claiming first person to throw these wheels on a XJ award, if you can prove me wrong do it! lolololol.**
