    Maybe it is because they are sitting too low and need bigger wheels :p

    ..and now we enter the "other" end of the wheel spectrum.. Where as the 16'' may look silly on a JK sport and the JKU sport, anything above 22'' is down right stupid and would never see a rocky, mud covered trail.

    In my opinion, there should be more tire than rim, not the other way around.. 17'', 18'' & 19'' are all good for road use, but 15'', 16'' & maybe 17'' should see the larger tires for off road.

    Willys lettering just seems cooler than Jeep on the grille for some reason.

    Honestly it comes down to how you use the Jeep off-road. A 37" tire on a 20" rim almost has the same type of sidewall movement (flex) as a 33" on a 15" rim (used to make a point, no need for hard numbers). 15" rims on a CJ with 33" tires was the hot ticket for years. Then 35" were more common and is what is used on JK's for the most part. Most JK's come from the factory with 17" now. I would argue the days of 15" - and 16" rims are behind us for now. 35" - 37" on a 17" rim is the new norm. 18" and 20" follow after that.

    Here are 17" rims with 37" tires
