hold your guys horses, loading the rims up and getting tires tomorrow. Im having the shop mount them and then align the front end. Pics on Saturday most likely. And i have very little places to wheel around here, so it might be a while before i can comment.

AFAIK the tires and rims have become one. I havent seen them yet. Im getting the alignment tomorrow morning and the tires put on. Then ill use my spare to figure out how to mount these center caps too. Its gonna look sweet, but i ended up having to paint over the jeep logo in the center caps because i screwed one up and wanted them to all look the same. Im gonna try and find some Jeep logo stickers or something to put on there, or something to screw onto... or maybe just find another set of center caps and stick new ones on.

I think it may be time to abort the stock centercap idea before you go drilling holes in your new wheels. You can buy cheap centercaps from RockRatz or on eBay and add stickers to them negating the need to drill your new Cragars.

Let me know if you find some tiny Jeep logos. I'd love to do the same.

For using the stock center caps, you can probably get some lug nuts like stock GM ones with the threaded caps on them. The caps have small washers that hold the hubcap on:

Scroll down to figure c and d.

Well... got the tires and wheels on today! Getting aligned monday, and had the weights put on the inner side of the rim so there arent any weights on the outside. Looks great! I was surprised when it rode better with the lift and tires compared to when it was lifted with just the stock tires. Fills out great and a very aggressive tire. Ill try and get some pics up here soon. Just washed and waxed the heep, so its good to go for a while.
