  • Hey I jus joined...I have a question about wheels

    Hey, my name's Alexxe. I'm new here. I live in Florida and my jeep's a 97 wrangler sport. I already have chrome bumpers, spotlights, new bucket seats, bumper steps, a chrome exhaust tip, an Alpine 12" sub and the raingler nets and next I wanna work on the wheels...so I was wondering...can I put on chunkier wheels without lifting the whole jeep? I don't mean bigger, wider tires...just chunkier ones??? I asked tha guy @ tha jeep dealer here n he had NO freakin clue what he was talkin about so I'm askin u guys.
    PLZ help me lol.

    RapIsCrap16:

    I really don't care what your gender is and I only mock people that have a bad attitude.

    Additionally, I would guess (judging by your lack of spelling skills), that you are more than likely a high school drop-out (or an imbicile), and also more than likely just got your license. Do your parents know you're using the internet? Perhaps they should go out and buy a copy of Net-Nanny, or some other third party parental control software. You don't seem to possess the maturity to roam the internet unsupervised.

    wow, this is fun. At least you got a point about Rap being Crap! I'm not old and I still dont get it, oh well . Welcome to MJR!

    Try this: Wheel selector

    They use a picture of a CJ, but you can get the general idea about what size and style of wheel you want. Or if you cant find a wheel you like there or you dont like the Jeep picture used, try taking a picture of your Jeep from the side and take it into a picture editing program. Then find other pics of wheels and cut and paste um on there. OR if you dont have any of that digital junk, take a regular picture, then cut wheel pics out of a magazine or something and place them over the picture.

    Goodtimes is right, smaller offest (backspacing) OR just buy wider wheels. Like a 15x10 is probably what you are looking for and will do what you want.

    i don't see how anyone was mocking you ...

    PRegner simply asked:
    How does slipping a chrome tip over the end of the pipe improve performance?
    And then you said:
    I dunno...who gives a shit? My friend told me about it, he has one on his Mudder n he said it duz, somehow...so I put one on mine.
    ur old, ur just not up-to-date with this new stuff...obviously.

    to me, that seems like an honest question. you went about calling him OLD? first of all, he's not and that's just immature, and second of all on this forum, age doesn't matter, either does gender -- that's why this forum has been so successful.

    Just a bit of advice from a "old guy".

    If you want help and advice, please check the attitude and ask away. If you are here just to stir up trouble, please go away.

    As for the exhaust tip increasing performance, there are a limited number of situations where this is true--sort of. But none of those applications apply to a vehicle with a catalytic converter or &/or a muffler.

    As for "chunkier" wheels, yea, you can do that. Just buy some with less offset. Most styles of wheels can be bought with a variety of offsets, pick what you want, and go for it. Be careful though, you can end up with some handling problems when your scrub radius gets too far out of hand. You will also run into some issues with the tires rubbing, and you will increase the wear on various front end components. The farther out you go, the worse all of those things will be. How far is the maximum acceptable compromise? That is all up to you, since you have to buy the parts and maintain your jeep.

    good luck.

    I'm glad someone else took up the cause. I'm in enough trouble.

    Maybe you should get one of those racey-looking "R" stickers for the back of your vehicle. That should improve performance too...
