Jeep Wrangler JL Wheel Buying Guide

Jeep Wrangler JL Wheel Buying Guide

Last Updated March 4, 2022 | C.J. Tragakis

While the most hardcore off-roaders will spend hours debating what tires to use on a Jeep, not as many folks will crawl forums asking about the best wheels for the Wrangler JL. That’s because, unless we’re talking about rim size, it comes down almost entirely to the personal taste and style of the driver.

With that said, we’ve picked out some of our favorites and compiled a guide to give you a jump-start on finding the perfect set for your Wrangler JL. Whether you’re looking for tough, lightweight wheels that are ideal for the trail or some big 22-inch rims that will help your daily driver stand out, CJ Off-Road carries something for everyone. You can opt for classic steel or aluminum finish, some sleek bronze or black colors, or even red accent wheels that will give your Wrangler sporty, head-turning style.

If you want to get everything you need in a single box, you can also check out our selection of Wrangler wheel and tire packages. By adding some off-road rubber of your choice, these kits make it easy to change the style and capability of your Wrangler in one fell swoop.

Fuel Wheels for Jeep Wrangler JL

Fuel is surely one of the most prolific brands out there for the off-road community, with numerous styles to suit every enthusiast's individual style. You’ll find a set of Fuel’s Zephyr beadlock wheels on our Hemi Wrangler build, which look great and really add some ruggedness to the overall aesthetic. If you're looking for some big 22" wheels, there are a nice selection of Fuel options that will really help your Jeep stand out from the pack.

XD Series Wheels for Jeep Wrangler JL

XD Series wheels have long been a household name in the off-roading and truck segments. The Rockstar wheels are practically classics at this point, and it goes to show why XD remains a leader in popular styles. No matter what type of style you’re going for, there’s a very good chance that XD offers something to fit the bill.

Black Rhino Wheels for Jeep Wrangler JL

The Armory wheels by Black Rhino are some of the most popular sellers today, with a back-to-basics look that is reminiscent of utilitarian and military vehicles. While we like the looks of their wheels especially for dedicated off-roaders, you’ll find that their style will pair well with just about any build.

Rugged Ridge Wheels for Jeep Wrangler JL

It’s hard not to feel nostalgic looking at a set of Rugged Ridge Trail Runner wheels; they have a classic style that’s hard to beat. But Rugged Ridge also has a host of more modern options if that’s the look you prefer for your Wrangler.

Wrangler JL ATX AX202 WheelThis set of AX202 wheels from ATX combines rugged and sporty style on our 4-door JL.

Other Favorite Wheels for Jeep Wrangler JL

There are some other favorite wheel options that we’d be remiss without adding to our list. We’re a fan of what ATX offers for Jeeps, and the AX202 set on our 4-door JL Wrangler adds some nice contrast and pop from the monochromatic body color. We’ve also selected some options from Mopar that are sure to go great with any Jeep. For a back-to-basics black wheel, check out American Racing’s Baja wheel.

Whether you haven’t quite found what you’re looking for here or you’re inspired to check out even more options, shop our entire range of Wrangler wheels (and tires) to view hundreds of options for your JL.
