Crager 69 wheels

Any TJ's out there sporting crager 69 wheels? I tried a search but didn't get any results.

I've never seen them on a Jeep, but on Cragar's website is says they make them in 15x8 with 5x4.5 lug pattern, so you could run them.

Would there be any adverse effects of having a solid wheel compared to spokes or holes?

If that's what I liked, I'd run them. I'm sure you are thinking air flow for cooling the brakes, I've seen a lot of wheels and hubcaps that don't provide that so I wouldn't be overly concerned. I suppose you could look for some scientific test some overly ambitious person has done to prove otherwise lol.

I could see those as being cool if you were going for a retro look.

Increased weight and reduced brake cooling are the two big ones with solid wheels. Potentially a build up of brake dust on the inside of the wheel as well.

Personally I like the way these wheels look and that they would be unique. If you do go with them, post some pics!
