Big Wheels

Why such tall rims?? 16, 17, or 18" wheels? whats up with that? Is it to clear bigger brakes? or is it just the "style". now you have to go spend 200 a tire rather than 160 cause you have a 16+" wheel.

The new braking system on the JK requires a larger wheel, and is supposed to be a very advanced design.
