Retro military tires on steel wheels - on a 98 Wrangler!
I wanted to share a very cool tire and wheel combination. I am working on a retro/military look for my TJ. I found that old Dodge Dakota 15x6 steel wheels fit newer wranglers perfectly. I put 7.00x15 military NDTCC tires on them. Check out the photos. I will paint the wheels "sand" to match the Jeep asap!
I cut two inches off the driver side flares to make them thinner. I am comparing them to the passenger side. I used a handsaw and attached them with screws countersunk into the plastic flare since I cut all mounting plastic away!

I cut the driver side fender flares to make them 2 inches thinner. I was not sure if anyone would notice. I am trying to decide if I like them better that way revealing a little more tire. Passenger side is still original. Look back at pictures above of driver side (thinner flares) What do you think? There is no registration plate since I am using/testing out this Jeep on my private property right now. I am considering some lettering, maybe "WILLYS" on each side of the hood? There is a thin line here when it comes to more decals. Could be cool or could be too much. Of course its easy to remove them.
