Anyone who doesn't think those "for offroad use only" comments are anything but the manufacturer covering their *** at their lawyer's recommendation are kidding themselves.

For example... the same reason many bumper-mounted receiver hitch manufacturers no longer say their receiver hitches are rated for towing even though they used to state they were. Liability and lawyers have changed how things can be sold now and even the obvious is no longer safe enough for some manufacturers. Like tow hitches that are no longer rated for towing.

I'm supposed to know all this stuff and I don't.

I'll still say, the same applies to container chassis' and old service trucks running multi-piece (whether it be Dayton or Budd) commercial truck wheels. If it holds the tire securely and all the part numbers match, you can run it.

1999 XJ - Finally on respectable tires.
1998 ZJ - I'll show you my Niner if you show me yours.
