    In progress; 4" lift, Mcneil fenders and hood
    I want to upgrade to Cooper Discoverer STT PRO 33s on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4. My question is which wheel size should I upgrade to... 16s, 18s, 20s? My use is strictly highway/road transportation through deep snow and bad weather. In Advance, Thanks, Harry!

    It seems to me that the 17" size, though not mentioned in your post, has become the most common size at this time. This means more tire choices and may even equate to lower prices. Note: Only go to 20s if you can handle the backlash. The struggle is real. lol

    Just my .02

    Those Cooper Discoverer STT PROs look good. I had not looked at them before.

    Have to admit...there are a ton of wheel choices in 15x8.
