WK2 wheel specs?

Does anyone know where I can get the specs for the stock wheels (18" and 20") offered on the new WK2's? Back spacing, offset, etc.

That doesn't have any numbers for the rims. That is a great site though. When I get some time and ambition, I will put together a huge thread with lots of stock information and guides for everything I can find. I have lots of work this semester though.

Offset is +56mm and backspace around 6.7" for both the 18x8 and 20x8 wheels.

Does anyone know what the bolt pattern is on the 18 X 8 wheels? Is it 5 X 5?

There is a WK2 that I could swear I saw in this section with JK Moabs on it. Those Rims just look sexy on the WK2. If I can find a set of takeoffs for about the cost of tires when my mom needs new ones I will have her get those.

I'm about 99% certain JK Moabs will require at least half an inch of (front?) spacing to clear the brake calipers. I know for certain that this is the case on a WK and I believe it to be true for a WK2 as well. It would be great if there were a set of Moabs that could fit without having to use spacers, because I agree that they look sexy

Even still, that is what, $120 for spacers?

Double that for two pairs. I wouldn't want non-bolt-on spacers and I don't know if there are any bolt-on spacers out there that are under 1.25". With that size a 265 or 275 width tire will be sticking out beyond the fender, which I personally wouldn't want on my WK2. It might also not be possible to fully turn the wheels by moving them out that much. I saw the same pictures you did but I would want to see it in action or see detailed photos of the front tires at full lock to see what kind of clearance it has. If I were to go with 17" wheels I would choose the stock WK2 ones or the AEV WK Pintlers.

To be honest, I would love them to stick out a tad. You can get RC spacers for $60 and they are 6061T6 IIRC. I can't see how having them stick out would interfere with full turning radius, only when the wheel is tucked too far in.

Having them positioned out further does have a negative affect. The further away the wheel centerline is from the pivot point (balljoints) increases the distance the wheel moves forward or backward during turning.

But I still don't see how that causes an issue with making steering wider. Many vehicles have much less backspacing. My only concern would be if it rubbed.
