Jeep Liberty MOAB wheels

I have the opportunity to get 5, 2004 Wrangler Rubicon MOABs, 1 with a new Goodyear MT/R (245/75/16) for $350. It seems like an incredible deal, any thoughts? thanks!

I'd get them. If even to flip them for an extra $100.

Just keep in mind that the Moab wheels are forged, not cast, and therefore are HEAVY. Kiss some fuel economy goodbye.

Refer to the thread "Moab wheels" in the tires and wheels section for more info.

Thats a pretty good deal
The wheels are not that heavy as some think, MTRs are heavier than all get out though
I've been running Moabs for 80,000 miles or so, love them

The Moabs are 10 lbs. heavier per wheel than a standard 16" alloy. That's pretty significant. Imaging taking a 10 lb. dumbell and strapping it to your factory wheels...that's what it will be like with the Moabs. Again, power and efficiency is going to take a hit.

No one is arguing that the Moab wheels look awesome. They rock on just about any Jeep.

I know here in vegas that is a screaming deal. They seem to go for around 5-800 here without the tires. Yes they are a little heavier but not that bad. I swapped my limited rims to these and love the look. Have not seen any MPG drop either but honest, I have so much other crap on it an extra weight on the wheel is the least of my concerns
Try the ARB bumper, winch, roughly 4-500 pound rear bumper, lol along with gas cans and other goodies, lol. Not to mention my fat rear.
