Why 26” Off Road Wheels?

Riding around with 26 inch off road wheels isn’t a decision made lightly. Truck guys looking at sizes this big are typically going for that ‘showstopper’ look, and rightfully so. In our 24 inch off road wheel write-up, we mentioned that running a wheel that size isn’t uncommon for legitimate wheelers. However, a 26 inch wheel may be pushing it. More on that later. One of the most common reasons people opt for massive 26 inch wheels is to clear their lift kits, and if you’re running a 26, the odds are your tires are massive too.

The Advantages of 26” Off Road Wheels

Look, we’re not going to sugarcoat it for you. Big 26” wheels are pretty uncommon on legitimate and authentic off roading setups. Is it impossible? Not at all. All we’re saying is that it’s not usual. Although going big on wheels and tires can negatively affect ride quality, in most cases the tires are the defining factor. With a proper tire mounted to the wheels, there shouldn’t be too much concern in regards to actual off road use. Now that we got that out of the way, if the goal is to build a show-ready truck, Jeep or SUV, and diameter doesn’t matter, 26” wheels are fair play. In the end, your vehicle always serves its purpose, whether you go off road with it or not.
