Mamba Wheel Fitment

I want to run these Mamba MR-1's on the WJ.






They Make them in 5x5 lug pattern, but i believe the backspacing is wrong. Any one know what it'll take to get these to work in a 17x8 wheel.

stock backspacing is 6" I believe. I'd go down to 4" or so, pushing the tires out a bit more.

They look very similar to the JK moabs.

They have less backspacing which is needed when running bigger tires in order to clear control arms and such.

Yea go with the Moabs. You can usually find them inexpensive on craigslist or something. I did and they look great. Plus they are a jeep wheel and you have the jeep center cap.
