Have done much research on this and have found some one who rand 4.75 with12.50 wide tires. And others who have ran 4.50 for years no probs including jerry bransford. May need a washer under steering stops for full lock.

Black wheels on a Jeep that appears to at least go off road sometimes (excluding lame Rock Stars) don't really suggest anything to me.
Don't get me started on truck nuts.

Luckily, that idiocy seems the have jumped the shark by now. I never did see it a whole lot in my area anyway, but these days, it's a rare sight...thankfully.

They were sort of like Mullets, even after awareness programs went viral, the people that sported them didn't seem to give a **** they were ridiculed.

Of these, I'd pick the Raceline Raptor.

Defiantly have some great rims. Kinda pricey though. I got a few on my ebay watch list. Really like the revolver model.
Thanks

Thanks for the heads up! Glad you're happy with the 4.5" BS, but I'm one of those guys who refuse to shim the steering stops, and will now definitely go to a 4.25" or 4.0" BS should I ever go to 33x12.5.
