    So I have an all white and grey CJ7 1985 and I have tires but the original rims have a lot of rust. My tires are practically brand new. What wheels should I get for a 33 x 12.5 x 15 tire. I'm new to wheels and tires so any help would be awesome

    Welcome Noah. It's an awesome forum.

    In my opinion. Wheels are a personal preference. What are you looking for? Chrome, polished, black. Alloys or steel?
    Your limited on your wheel size based on your 15" tires. But, depending on your choice of either 7, 8, or 9inch widths etc. Will change the appearance of your tire wheel combo. Good luck. And don't forget to post pics of your decision. We like pics. Lol

    There she is. The wheels are original here but I don't wanna go black I was thinking chrome or a matte white possibly to match the original. How do I determine my offset I have a good lift on the car and good clearance

    I like the looks of that Laredo. Brings back old memories. I had a 83 Laredo I bought in 1986. Had it 14 years. Loved it. It had chrome bumpers, wheels, and grill. All factory on that one. Looked sharp.
    However I chose matt black on my current jeep. Yea, personal preference. Good luck with your choice.

    Just a thought. The studs on CJs are short and designed for steel wheels. If you want aluminum alloys you should really install longer studs.
