wheel decision

Hi guys,
in a few months i will be getting new wheels and tires along with a lift ( i will ask for recommendations in the lift section)

as of now i am debating between two brands. ATX and Fuel wheels..
i like the new ATX Ravine


the specs:
Size: 17x8.5
bolt pattern:: 5x127
Offset:10
backspace: 5.14
CB: 71.5

Pros: like the look and it is hubcentric so no need to run hub rings.

next are 2 Fuel wheels:
the first is the Fuel Anza


the specs:
Size: 17x8.5
bolt pattern:: 5x127
Offset:6
backspace: 5
CB: 78.1

second spec option:
Size: 17x8.5
bolt pattern:: 5x127
Offset:-6
backspace: 4.5
CB: 78.1

2nd Fuel wheel is the fuel Trophy

the specs:
Size: 17x8.5
bolt pattern:: 5x127
Offset:6
backspace: 5
CB: 78.1

2nd option specs:Size: 17x8.5
bolt pattern:: 5x127
Offset:-6
backspace: 4.5
CB: 78.1

the Fuel wheels have same specs, its just a matter of taste.
pros, like the look but never been a fan of having to run hub rings to making wheels fit.

as for the width, will this work? can i go wider or narrower? i am planning a lift as i said, either going with the RR or RC spacer lift (my jeep only has 28k miles on it) or i was looking at OME springs with bilstein shocks.


Thanks

We have very similar taste!

8.5 wide wheels with 5-5.25 backspace is the sweet spot so you're good there.

Ive never had an issue running hubcentric rings and wouldn't let that be a deciding factor.

Thanks Matt, will the offset matter?
Also, if you were picking which of the 3 would you go with. Also any other recommendations? Just trying to piece things together. NYC got hit really hard with snow this winter.

I would probably go with the Anza, +6mm offset.

Man we do have similar taste. Those are my favorite of the set. I've last question, what tire size would you go with. I'm thinking about an rr or ome/bilstein 5100 lift.

Stay away from rr. If you want a budget lift go with rough country.

How big do you want to go?

I have no idea. Just don't want major problems with rubbing and stuff, don't want it looking wimpy either. I looked around and see people using and recommending 255/70/17 or 255/75/17. I want to do it right the first time and not waste money

You'll want to do the pinch weld mod regardless... go with 265/70/17. OME HD front springs, OME struts, OME rear springs and 5125 rear shocks.

If you're looking to offroad at all theres a few simple/cheap mods you can do to maximize rear travel too
