I have a few numbers for you to check against your wheel. A few numbers were a little off, but if I know the dimensions highlighted in red we should be able to array the pattern off the center of the wheel(would just need to verify distance shown as 16-1/2"). Also need to know hole size for the bolts. If the image shows up blurry/too small to read let me know and I'll email a full size screenshot.

Behind the scenes:
This pictures shows a piece of paper taped to the size of a jeep with my standard length rocker guards(ends at flare). A customer requested rockers that lined up with the wheelwells...so what do I do to find the new dimensions?

Take a little garage dust and rub the edges of everything. This creates a measurable paper transfer that can more easily be put into AutoCAD.

They had to come off each time I had a flat fixed, replaced tires and to sand the rust off the ring and repaint them. After almost 2 years the bolt holes on the rims started to strip out. Also the spacer eroded the finish off the rims.

If you decide to use them, Id look at using aluminum, also the bolts are different sizes, I ran bolts through the ring and into the spacer, and in between the forks of the rims to create a more uniform bolt pattern. The ones between the forks I had to special order from fasten-all. You can see the ones I built on my web site www.in2jeepn.com

I'm sorry that you had trouble with the ones that you made. What was the cause of the problems -- you just say that "the rims will not hold up to the abuse" -- what kind of abuse are you talking about? There are THOUSANDS of vehicles on the road with metal rings bolted to their wheels.

If the threads are stripping and the ring was able to move/erode the finish then you did not torque the bolts properly or used the wrong thread pitch. Loctite would also prevent the bolts from ever loosening.

Yes they'd need to come off to change a flat tire...what makes you think otherwise? Tire irons pry against the lip of the wheel unless it's done on a machine. (Really though, I guess they could stay on if the outer diameter of the ring is less than flush with the lip)


I'm having a hard time understanding what you mean by "engineering the issues out of them"?
I would use a bottoming tap to chase the threads if they're not too far gone. If they are then it'd need to be drilled out and tapped to a larger diameter.

So you're looking for an external mechanism? Have you seen the toggle clamp setup that SWAG Offroad uses?
