    New member in Cincinnati, Ohio. Just bought a 2018 Wrangler Sport S.

    Looking for help with wheels and tires. I literally have no idea where to start. I went to Tire Discounters and they were of no help.

    I was thinking about adding 18" wheels with 35" tires and a lift. Recommendations would be great.

    Welcome! My recommendation is the 17" wheels. Works and looks great with the 35s. Got lift planned or flat fenders? Some good threads in this forum for the JK with similar builds.

    Also for a relatively similar build check out @JKBob or @JoeInOh jk build for some pics of 35s and 17" wheels. Has a very nice menacing look and attitude that you might be looking for.

    Another nice looking JK with 35s + 17s boasting a Frankenstein lift kit cobbled up with the best parts hopefully not exhumed sources like the real Victor Frankenstein

    A quick question. Your 2018; is it a JK or JL? The JLs can run a bigger tire than the JK in stock form. I have seen a JLU Rubicon with flat fenders and no lift on 35s.
