No problem man, I understand! I should be back on the road within the month and we can go wheeling then. Also a few other WJs in the area on here that I'm sure would like to go on some trails

I had the OEM overland rails and they rusted from the inside out. I've seen a few other Overlands around my area with the same issue. Damn salt.

that was me. I definitely must have caught the sales guy at the dealership off-guard b/c I saw the wheels sitting there a month earlier and asked about them and they told me they wanted $1500. I went back last weekend to try to get them down to $1300 and the guy opened with $1100 so i said done deal.

I also bought a new set of 5 sensors though (dorman replacements) and also had to get the tires balanced ($40 for all 5 with dynabeads). All in all, new rims, meaty 32" tires, and sensors only cost me about $1350 with tax after installation.

Also, i can confirm that the standard dorman 974-002 WJ tire pressure sensors fit the JK wheels and they re-synced with my EVIC with zero issues.
