Most of the people here are into wheeling. Not a lot of pavement pounders. As for Looking cool, isnt it more important that you like the way your vehicle looks as opposed to a few thousand strangers? I am not a fan of lowpros in general. Ive got 15s on my jeep and 16s on my dually! Now if you have a question about tire/wheel size, fitment, Or backspacing... thats different.

I'm not biased against street Jeeps like most of the responses you'll get around here--lots of guys around here will rabidly attack anyone who doesn't lift their Jeep, slap big rubber on it, and take it wheeling.

That said, I still don't like them. That's far too little rubber for any reasonable daily-driven vehicle. It will ride terribly, the handling benefits of low profile tires are completely useless to an SUV with its high center of gravity, and I don't think it looks very good either. I also don' think the design of the wheels jives very well with the design of the XJ either. The XJ is a boxy, sharp-cornered, simple design, and these wheels are too curvy and spindly in my opinion. Seeing that much empty space through them is off-putting as well. They'd look better with bigger brakes behind them, but that wouldn't solve the other issues I have with them. I've never seen an XJ pull-off wheels larger than 18", and even to do that they usually have to increase overall diameter to preserve a proper amount of sidewall.

You asked for opinions, and I gave mine. It's ultimately your choice, though.

Urban yan has one of my favorite street Jeeps. It's not totally my style, but it's very impressive. Those are 18" wheels from a Charger RT with 225/60R18 tires. It's a shame that he got banned from JF :(

For a street jeep, I would do a 2-3" lift. some 16-17 wheels(JK Rubi take offs with adapters) and some nice all terrains.
This is the last street jeep I did before tint, which ended up getting wheeled.

@halo I don't care what strangers on here think I'm not looking for approval either just opinions on how it looks thank you

And to my quote up there,


You hit the nail on the head,

I'd didn't even realize about turning and other things.

The jeep with charger rt tires is exactly what I'm looking for. A bit of style a bit of beef to it, thank you very much

9-10 ill end up not getting those rims. Just looking for regular people opinions. On low pros and Cherokees.

Yeah those are nice I have to find used ones in good shape cause buying new is too much, that's why I was considering those 22's I mean you have to admit those rims an tires are only 800 for the set is pretty good

I love that^

i wish I could find a clean 2WD DD to do something like that to, but still keep my '99. Always wanted a slightly lowered stance, staggered set of Mustang wheels, and some nice little performance mods. Think of all the little ricerboys you could put to shame!

Me personally, whether I like a street themed Jeep depends on how its themed. Lowered a little with a muscle theme (mustang wheels, clean look)? Hell yea. Lifted with gawky 22's and super lowprofile tires? Negative. But everyones tastes are different, so my opinion means nothing.

S8NNG8 02-06-2013 05:14 PM

The 22's and tires may come cheap, but before you buy them, go price out the next set of tires you're gonna need. Low pro's like that get about 20k miles.

raetay 02-06-2013 11:47 PM

Yeah I think ill get something like urban yans or the 2 door jeep is what is want cool looking and practical


Thank you for your help everyone

Keep in mind ride quality will diminish with lower profile wheels. Personally, I don't think they belong on a jeep. But, you are entitled to do what you please. Just don't expect many people here to agree with you.

Moved to Street Jeep Forum. You'll have better luck finding the input you need here.
