Never had a 235 my stock xj came trimmed on 31s and still rubbed like a mofo. Now a 33x10.5 on tick bronco II wheels. Which look like ar outlaw 2s and have 4" back spacing and are soo easy to come by. I removed the rivets & painted em black and replaced the rivets with grade 8 bolts
Looks different. I like it.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but you have Outlaw 2s with bolts going through the outer lip of the rim because you decided to take out the rivets?

That has to be hideous.

I stole the rims and 31's off of my Exploder. Thanks to the backspacing, I ran 31's w/ no lift for almost 2 years.

D windows/soft 8's are very overplayed in the Jeep world but they are the best bang for the buck. I ran a 1/4" red pinstripe to match my paint and chrome caps to mix it up a bit.



I mainly bought them to get 8" width and needed less backspacing. At around 50 bucks a pop they serve their purpose well. If you look on eBay, ION Alloy also makes some good looking alloy wheels if you dont mind 3.5" backspacing.

My problem lies in my OCD. I think a 5 lug looks best with a 5 spoke rim. 6 lug, 6 spoke. 8 lug, 8 spoke. I'm just nuts like that.

No I have bronco II wheels that look just like outlaw 2. 2 of the rims were missing rivets, so I popped the rest out and put bolts through them. The rims are plasti-dipped flat black with grade 8 bolts vs rivets. I like the way it looks actually.

Here my wheels. 4" back spacing, found in almost any junkyard, and 1/4 the price of outlaw 2s. Side by side the ar's have nicer machining in the round holes and they have more of a curve where they dip towards the wheel mounting surface. Otherwise very very similar and I bet 90% of people wouldn't even know the difference. And again 18 bucks at my local yards vs 100 or so for the ar's. I have 7 identical wheels so far & need 3 more. I want 2 sets of 5. 1 set black, 1 set with the silver aluminum finish.

That's all cool, but you still have one problem. One of the smallest upgrades is 31's. Those rims, being a 15x7 will buckle the tread causing the tread to disappear down the center of the tire. This will half-life the tires.
