06 Commander Wheel questions

I just bought an 06 Commander Its the tanish gold color like on the webpage header....Killer deal and of course it needs tires ASAP so i figured might as well take some more money and blow it on nice wheels and tires

Now, see i don't know what kinda look i should do yet either just big ass rims with low profiles, or get some nice size rims with medium low rugged looking tires

Issue is i want a good deal on stuff I'm trying to keep it under 1200 for all this

Let me know if anyone got ideas or recommendations

Again there is a huge amount of information available to you by using the search function. Check your other thread for how to search.

Tire selection has a great deal to do with how you intend to use your Commander. Offroad use would support larger tires with lots of sidewall for flex, cushion, and grip when aired down for maximum traction and comfort. The narrow sidewall like you see with ultra low profile tires is best left for on the street, and even then it is much easier for a pothole to ruin a wheel because of the lack of rubber cushion between the road and your wheel. There are many consideration that go into selecting the tires that are best for you. Spend the time doing research using the search capabilities of the Forum.

Please don't get "big rims" for a Commander, it looks horrible. These are Jeeps not Escalades.

I'll agree that DUB wheels look out of place on the Commander, but I'll plug my +30 Hankooks on stock rims with wheel spacers. Same footprint/outside diameter as 20-22" rims with low profile tires, but with the utility/comfort of some nice sidewall. Tread pattern has a nice aggressive (street) look, but deep sipes are M+S rated and have been great in all sorts of weather. $500/4, shipped.

I paid over $600 on off the rack all terrain tires.

For $1200 remember, good tire and wheel combos are not cheap. Cheap tire and wheel combos are not good.

Same advice I got when getting a tattoo.

"Big Rims Look Horrible" I find that offensive.

I would rate priorities as follows:

Lift
Tires (on stock wheels)
Intake
Exhaust
