Probably PSC corners and their own Rockers I like how they fit on my 95. If I don't make my own rockers

I got bored this morning so I decided to start looking at wheels for the Smurf.

I think I may go with these Nomad wheels from Summit racing. What do you guys think ?

I like the wheels you already have better than those....maybe if they were 5 spoke instead of 6

I like 'em. Classy and clissic without too much "bling." Although I agree a 5 spoke would be a wee bit better. Cheers

I would keep the wheels I have if they had a better B/S and were 8" wide.

I like the 6 spoke its different.

I do like 'em!
5 spoke?

The 6 spoke just throws me off for some reason? Maybe it's because all the wheels I see with more than the classic 5 spokes are either on brodozers or Messican rigs?

I do think the style is unique and I like it!

Cheers

Free shipping? I didn't know summit still had a sale going on.

And I do like them they are classy. But please promise me that if you do get them, that they will be wheeled on.

They will get wheeled on. I wheel my rigs. But I will use XJ for more hardcore trips since it's already armored, has trail damage , and has that magic 100" wheelbase

Took the YJ out and did a little wheeling, and got stuck. So I had to swallow my pride and call my wife so she could rescue me in the XJ lol
