MAMBA MR1X fit on wj?

Hello everyone I was looking at wheels today for my wj.
I plan on getting a 2" lift and some new tires.

I was looking at the black MAMBA MR1x wheels:

I chatted with their customer service and they said they wont fit my wj?

Is this true?

I googled them and they come in 2 different bolt patterns. 5x4.5 and 5x5 you just have to make sure you get the ones that are 5x5.

Thanks, hoping to find these or black Moabs for cheaper.

and unless u lift it, your gonna poke out like....



At 2" with 245/75/16 some bumper trimming is necessary, not the actual edge of the bumper that you'd see but the interior that the fender liner tucks into, relative to the scrub of the tire. If you opt to lift without the track bar you will rub more on one side than the other. further rubbing will occur if you get longer control arms too. Fog lights are clear of the tire scrub by about half an inch.

Moabs will not fit, there is a member on here who made them fit using a 1.25inch spacer/adapter. Some will advice against that. the Mamba's will fit buttttt you need to make sure you get the right bolt pattern and offset. i got them from CARID and they said it would not fit, but that is because of the offset and subsequent bumper trimming you'd need un-lifted.

What's offset?

Would 245/70/16 rub?

Moabs won't fit? Not sure where you got that information from

i meant tj moabs as in lower offset, actual concave face that the mambas replicate which is usually otherwise found in 4.5x5. regular moabs fit, sure, but imo huge difference in appearance
