Hello!! I am new to the forum and would like to get some sound advice on some tire and lift modifications. I was considering selling my stock 2008 Commander Sport but love it too much to let it go. Instead I have decided to give it a fresh new look and this is where I could use some guidance.
I would like to get a set of 17x8.5
**** Cepek Torque Wheels in Gun Metal
Bolt Pattern: 5x127
I would like to pair these with BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A KO
I would also like to lift my Commander anywhere from 2” to 2 ¼” that I have seen in this forum without having to get new shocks.
Also, will wheel spacers be necessary? If so, how much of a spacer will I need? I have read that these are not advised if at all possible. I might occasionally do some minor off-road but nothing crazy aggressive and this will be my daily driver.
Honestly, all of these offsets and sizes are very confusing to me and everyone that I have spoken to just seems to confuse me more. I’d really like to get this right for ME. I am hesitant to take this to a Jeep shop only because (as much as I hate to say it) I am a “confused female” with all this and am worried they’ll be more concerned about taking my money than making my Commander look like I want it to look. With that said, that is why I am here. With the hopes that you all will steer me right with sound advice. I hope that I have given enough information for you to help me.
Thank you so much in advance!
