They are 17x9 with 4.75" BS Pro Comp 7069. I will get some side pics for you. They stick out about the same as when I had Rubicons with spacers.

What paint did you use for the headlights? I'm interested in doing it while I wait in between plasti-dip coats for the Moabs.

Just some rust oleum gloss black with Several coats of clear. Used night shades to tint the turn signals completely.

I have a spare set for sale cheap that I played around. Shoot me a pm if anyone is interested.

They are homemade mounts from a member on another forum. Very similar to the ones listed on eBay now. That's the route I was planning until I stumbled on these.

Yeah, I got them from Amazon. They shipped quickly and free with prime! The at2s are great off road and feel good aired down. The tread is actually really much more aggressive than the pictures make it look. I payed $15 a tire for installation in San Jose, Ca. I have since found people who will mount tires cheaper, but I am very happy with the service I got. Took they guys around 10 min to mount all 4!
