I like the wheel you picked but personally I would get a set of rubicon wheels from a new model in 17" a 4 inch lift would be great and a set of 35x12.50r15 bfg km2 tires. keep in mind the most important thing about jeeps is keep the gear fluid changed and keep a set of 5 tires on that match with equal tread depth and always do a 5 tire rotation. especially if you go to bigger tires then balance and rotate every 3k other than that figure what your going to do with it what do you have in mind.

You could pop that hood off and prep it, and repaint it for probably under 50 bucks, as a DIY project.

Those rims are pretty nice on a lifted jeep. A wrangler near me has the same DC-1 rims and it looks great.

I personally like the cragar soft 8's, they're cheap and look great.
I know I'll be picking up a set as soon as I get some 32's and a lift...

The Cragars are nice, as well as the ones you picked out. Take your pick.

Are you looking to enhance the performance?
