You know me gribbs...I like a little *bling* and soft 8's are too blah. You may have to put the fiance on the corner to afford 'em, but:
2007 WK CRD: DD @ 27mpg, tuned by Keith at GDE
1997 100" TJ: Cummins/NSG370/TeraNomore/37's and leaf springs - Gone! Lil Green Bean build thread
2008 Rubi Unlimited: Gone! Smashin' Punkin - 06 Rubi LJ, Cummins QSB3.3, work in progress IndyORV
well a bit of a spoiler, but if you did soft 8's this is basically what it would look like, This was my friends 2000 patriot blue tj with 4" SL and 1.25" BL, stock fenders cut to flat, and rockmen rockers, he had 4.56's and arb's front and rear but he unfortunately had to sell it. It was really sweet and really good shape and some one got a great deal when they got it. Anyways here it is
edited to less clutter up his thread
2002 tj sahara 3" lift 35" km2, AtoZ rockers, 8k warn, 4.56 gears, lock-rites front and rear

This "Jeep thing" is like dating a really really hot chick, who is crazy! Its alot of fun, you spend too much money, your up all night ending up sweaty & greasy from it, your friends are jealous, you get admission into some sort of weird club... but it gets mad at your for no reason, throws fits seemingly randomly, has unexplained issues which it somehow solves on its own only after you try a bunch of different things (and spend a bunch of money) to solve it... and yet you can't resist getting in it every chance you can.
Really the only reason I am looking at new wheels is the fact that I am tired of the paint chipping on mine, and I don't like the spidertrax wheel spacers, I trust them 100%, but taking apart the hubs and having to do 1 more step just to get them off is a pain, also I wanna change the look of my rig and I think the wheels along w 35s would be damn near perfect.
Smoke, I love those rims, and if I had the coin to spend on wheels and it wasn't a dd I'd do more bling w the beadlocks, I'd like to get some trail ready beadlocks eventually anyhow
James, for some reason ever since I got my jeep soft 8s have held a special place in my heart, haha, I like the look, and the only way I'm gonna get new wheels is if I get em cheap. I just cannot justify spending too much money on the jeep if it doesn't help it perform better offroad, so pricey wheels just don't do it for me (unless they r walker evans beadlocks)
I do like the V5s, but I like the soft 8s better, that patriot blue tj w the chopped flares is sweet, love the dark jeep w the light top look (obviously). I am gonna spend some time looking at the V5s and see if I like em, cus they r different, but they r almost too retro looking for me.....but if u have pics of jeeps with the V5s post em up, I'd love to see em!
Mike, I'll be getting rid of mine when I get home if you like them and are interested. There is plenty of backspacing/width to run whatever size tire you might want to run. I believe they are 15x10's, I'd have to measure when I get home to be sure. 12.50's don't like them too aweful much as you've seen in the past. Either way, they are yours if you want them and are willing to run wider than a 12.50.
