It'll only work if your logged into ROF. A guy got the charcoal AEV wheels on his Rubi. They'd look good on a mall crawler.

Eeep. That's a lot of money to spend on rims to get thrashed.

I guess since I don't own a ruby... I will have to hear about it through others...

Why's that? Power windows & locks? Daily Driver---- roll ups SUCK! And while I was in there.... I figure I might as well try my hand at the locks

Yeah, seems kinda useless when you have a soft top. I didn't even think you locked the doors when you had a soft top...

I guess having roll up windows for me isn't such a big deal. Especially in something as small as a wrangler.

Roll ups just suck. Even if only rolling down the driver's side

And the locks---- like I said... I'm in there anyway. And I will be getting an alarm installed early next year when I finsh off my sounds. I'm getting a custom fiberglass box installed behind the seats that will remain stealth. But an alarm will still be needed.

You wouldn't wheel one of these captain moneybags? Let's be honest:





... and AEV wheels are hardly mall crawlers, but that's ok because I CAN'T AFFORD THEM ANYWAY:

They sure look pretty. But I like being able to replace a wheel for less than $30...

BTW - That Brute is badass.

That first rig is pretty sweet. But the wheels are a kind of boring---- especially for the money they are charging. Even I'm not that nuts

I like their wheels beacause they have that OEM non-bling look. Also, AEVs wheels are made with backspacing that will fit 12.50 tires without rubbing, but as tucked under the flares as possible... 4.5" I think.
