Default Possible Wheel Size

I just bought a 89 Laredo the other week for $300. It was a steal, body totally straight, good running engine, and 4WD works awesome. I want to have this be a daily driver, but also want it to look badass. Does anyone have some good wheel type, size, that would make a good wheeler and daily commuter. Also, what kind of gear change would I have to do. I'm fixing on getting a 4 inch lift here in the future. Any input would be great.

Thanks,
Matt

I would go with some Cragar Soft 8s or D-Windows for rims. They're cheap and look good. You can find them on SummitRacing.com pr JEGS.com . For tire size, 31s fit nice under a 4" lift and wouldn't require regearing. After 33s you want to regear because it bogs bad and becomes sluggish. As for the type of tires, whatever you find on craigslist for cheap. There's a lot of great deals on almost new tires because someone decided to go bigger and just need the money. There was a guy that gave away a set of 33s on Cragar D-Windows for FREE! You just gotta keep your eyes peeled.
