Product Information

MSRP: $800.00
Average Price: $356.67
Manufacturer: Eagle Alloy
Recommended?
Yes: 8 / No: 0

Polished aluminum rims with 3.25" of backspacing and 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern with -30mm offset. Sizes, bolt pattern and offset varies so check with the manufacturers website.

Ship weight is 20 pounds.

These are very nice wheels. They require polishing every season to stay looking great, otherwise just washing them will keep them looking good. They have a great shine that looks classy and polished, not chromed.

They will pit and dull in winter as all polished, un-coated aluminum wheels will do. This is due to salt and magnesium chloride and other de-icer chemicals that are put on road. Keep this in mind.

Pros: look awsome.
Cons: simulated beadlock ring is a pain in the butt to take off just to change the tires. but then again how often do you change tires.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: i love the looks. i had a hard time balancing my 33's so i had to go back to my 31" mtr's. i dont know if it was the 33" nitto grapplers or the rims or both. ill just try another tire when my mtr's need changing and see if that works, then i will know if it was the tires or the rims. my mtr's balanced fine so i think it was the nitto's.

Pros: They look great
Cons: Raw aluminum will get destroyed if you use these in the winter. (Salt)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: They look great, and compliment my 33x12.50 Cooper STTs.

These are my spring/summer/fall rims, and I just got them, but havn't mounted them on the jeep yet.

I'll update this review in the spring when I get them mounted up.

Comments: These wheels are not coated, so I do not recommend running them in winter. The de-icer chemicals like magnesium chloride and salt with pit and dull the rims. They will lose the mirror finish, and turn more to a silver finish. Essentially, the chemicals will cloud the rims.

For this reason, these are my summer wheels.

If you live without snow, no worries. These wheels are like moving mirrors. The quality and craftmanship is awe inspiring. The little backspacing creates a bowl effect (depth), so the wheel doesn't look flat and has more detail. This increases the beauty, IMO. Scratches are only visible from close up, and upkeep is pretty easy.

For upkeep, polish the wheels every few months. Otherwise, keep them clean and hand dry them so they won't spot and they'll look excellent.

Polished aluminum looks more classy than chrome, IMO. The lip of the rim also meshes with the tire too and creates a flat, seamless surface. If you're into detail, and want some classy shine with your jeep, not blingy chrome, then these are the perfect choice.

I paid $100 per wheel.
