Going to treat my SJ to a 2" lift come spring. Hoping to put some Goodyear wrangler duratracs on instead of the bfgoodrich k02's. 15" rims, any thoughts on rims that aren't methods?

Nice! I'm looking at going with either the BFG Ko2 or Dsicoverer AT3 and I think I'm going to go with the 16" inch Motegi MR139, I will be ordering my lift kit this black friday!

Oh sweet! Will 16" work without rubbing? And the tires are 235,75,r16?

Patrick from ADF said as long as the tires are under 29" in overall diameter you should be safe so I am just going off that, I have seen other lifted setups posted with the 16"s. Im looking at the 235/70/r16 discover AT3. When speaking 15" vs 16" I don't think it affects the overall tire diameter just the inside diameter.. if anybody knows different please correct me.

black rhino has two wheels out there now, boxer and rumble, that are "off road Subaru" sizes and offsets.

I am not too fond of the Methods. They just seem too blah and almost everyone with a Subaru runs them. I really like the Black Rhino Boxer. it is one sharp looking wheel.

So I ended up ordering the 15" method 502 which I know you were asking about others! But I couldn't pass them up. Getting the Yokohama GO15 225/70/15, hoping they will look aggressive enough. They are supposed to perform well on pavement and snow which is perfect for me in Oregon. Will update with pics next week when I get them. I went through the discount tire rep Don who posts on this forum.

i just ordered black rhino boxers 17x8 +40 and g015 235/65/17. Didn't fit in the rear for me.
I went with 235/60/17 cooper discovery at3 4S since they dont have the size in the g015.
This size should fit nicely with my 1" ADF lift and hopefully no hiccups.

Look at the MOMO heritage series they have a nice rally style look. Fifteen52 also makes several rally style wheels that aren't such a main stream new look. PLEASE don't get the methods everyone on the planet seems to be running them. Do something different
