But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Yes, the side you have referred to as "Not Tapered" should face toward the rear of the vehicle.

^^^ You're welcome.

Well I finished stripping the rest of the wheels. Apparently two of them were made in the USA and two were made in Mexico. Oddly enough the pair made in Mexico appeared to have better quality steel but much lower quality welds between the center and outer rings. They all measured the same 15x10 with 4" backspacing.


I used a set of saw horses to paint them on. I put a nail through the valve stem hole and one on each side of the wheel to keep them from trying to roll off the side.


Here are all four stripped, cleaned and ready to paint.


The first coat of POR15.


I applied two total coats of POR15 to all four wheels.


Next came two coats of POR Blackcote for the gloss look and UV protection. This should match my frame, bumpers and nerf bars since they were all painted with the same stuff.


One last shot of all four wheels with the final coat applied.


I've got a spare wheel on the way which will be painted to match. I've also got the tires and some other stuff ordered which I hope will get here by this weekend. The Jeep has been on jack stands for almost a month and summer is fading fast in this neck of the woods. I want to get some more miles on it before the cold weather sets in.

I agree, the black looks great. I like the look of stock wagon wheels. Then again I'm a bit biased. I picked up a set of American Racing white powder coated wagon wheels for 35$ a piece like 5 years ago!!! Summer fading fast huh?? This morning @ 0600 the thermometer said 32 and I live 20 miles east of Pittsburgh. Can only imagine what the evening is starting to bring your way!!! Those guys out west (Jim) and down in Texas (Ken) have it good for another month or two!!!!! (insert a couple of choice words under the breath)..............Then again, my thermometer never read more than 95 this summer.

It's quite nice out my way I think the high today was 75 - 80. Somewhere around there. And at night its normally 60.


Mike, maybe I missed it but what kind of tires did you order?

Thanks for the comments everyone and to Strokin383, thank you for taking the time to read my build as well as taking the time to register and post about it. Welcome to the Jeepforum.

I did a lot of research and bought what I thought was going to be an exact replica of the 8-spoke wagon wheels I already have. I bought a wagon wheel from USWheel that was advertised as a 15x10 with 4" backspacing. It is actually closer to 3.75" than it is to 4". So now I'll have one wheel that will stick out almost 1/4" farther than the rest. Not a big deal but at least advertise the correct info. The other thing that chaps my @ss is buying something from a company called USWheel only to find the following stamped on the rim. Isn't anything sacred anymore?


Anyway, this wheel came white with the red and blue pin stripes so I stripped it down.


After looking at the wheels I had already painted, I was not satisfied with final finish. Some minor amounts of wrinkling appeared on different areas of the wheels.


I decided to apply another coat of Blackcote to all the wheels while painting the spare. I'm glad I did because the final finish turned out much nicer.


My tire order finally got delivered too.


Here is a good comparison shot of the Dunlop Mud Rovers and the BFG KM2's.

It has been 15 minutes since you posted and I know you have a tire machine, *what* is taking so long???

At least you picked the right tires but I still prefer the MT Classic II's

Mike I felt the same way when I ordered my Skyjacker springs and saw that they were made in India. At least they ought to let us know up front where the stuff is made.

Wheels are looking nice.
