#259 of 277 Replacing Stock Wheels and Tires
Feb 21, 2010 (8:14 am)
I finally purchased a 2010 Wrangler after waiting for over 30 years to get a Jeep. I fell in love with a high school friends Jeep Honcho after he took me out to a local mudhole. I have never been able to afford one until now and the stock wheels and tires 255/75R17 are nice on the road, but not exactly how I want it to look. I am not a serious off roader, but want to get some wheels and tires that are more aggressive, matte black wheels. I have been looking online, but I am no expert and really at this point don't want to put in a lift kit, yet. Any suggestions, good websites? Thanks!!

After many years of Jeep-envy, I'm about to take the plunge. I'll probably be getting a Sahara Unlimited, due to needing the 4 doors. I used to be a Host here at Edmunds, so I know my way around negotiating a good deal. Right now what I'd like to do is talk to other owners and get some real-life info on this vehicle.
So...Hello and Goodbye - I'm off to the other topics to get more information!

I am sure you will enjoy your Sahara. I purchased a 2010 2-dr Sahara in September with all the goodies and am really having a good time with it. It has served me well off road, and with the Siris and Nav/Bluetooth/Voice Recognition suits my needs around town and on short trips.
The only upgrade I made was upsizing the tires just a bit.
It is a 6-speed amnual that had the popping out of 1st issue. This was resolved when my retailer swapped out the interior shift boot. It hasn't happened since then (4 months/5k miles).
I read all this bad press about Chrysler and the trickel down to its other brands but quite frankly, I don't see it. My Wrangler meets or exceeds my every expectation.

I've had 3 Chryslers in the past 6 years...a PT Cruiser and two T&C vans. No problems with any of them. I also had a Dodge Ram 1500 that I owned for 5 years with no problems, either. While I'd probably stay away from the Jeep "soccer mom" cars like the Cherokee or Liberty, I believe that the Wrangler series have proven themselves.
Where I live, you see a LOT of Wranglers on the road, mostly the 2-door versions. I have two VERY big dogs, so I really need the 4 doors. Around here, a Jeep is the best vehicle for our tough winters and top-down summers.
I'm glad you were able to get your problems resolved. I'm looking forward to posting in the near future with some brags about my new Jeep!

No input for the JK, but I'm still preferring the TJ's. Aftermarket support is a LOT cheaper for parts on the TJ than the JK, but as the JK is out longer, it'll get better... I hope.

That reminds me of my '76 CJ-5..
Fatter tires, a roll bar and a custom bumper, and you'd be right there!

I picked that pic because it reminded me of my '74.
Mine had a roll bar but otherwise looked very similar.
