american outlaw buckshot

I needed a set if 17" rims.
Found a local guy with a set of 5 for sale.
They are 17x9, 5 on 4.5, 5.6" backspace.
They were mounted once, but only for mock up.
never driven on. Got them too cheap to pass up.
Anyone running these?
Are they decent?

Never seen them before. 5.6" of back spacing? How narrow a tire are running?

12.5" tire on a 9" rim. Got spacers though.
was looking for used jk moabs, but these were like new and cheaper.
would have preferred a 7 to 8 inch rim, but o well.

Been all over your build thread jeffro, way cool!

Google Images pulled up over 35,000 hits on the wheels... you should be able to get a decent idea of the look on a bunch of different vehicles.

I dont hate them, but not my first choice.
I needed 17s. It was a price point purchase.
Pretty light though for a 17x9.
