Wheels?!

Anyone sick of seeing the same wheels over and over again? Wish there were more options for us with older jeeps. I see some wheels on jeeps in catalogs that you don't see on any websites? Anyone have any secrets wheels companies or websites with a little different flavor perhaps? Let's see what u guys are rolling on.....

I guess they are common, but they are a Pro-Comp 16x8 with a deep offset, which you mainly can only find in a 15". I think they look better than the common 15".

Sort of the same but a bit different: 15x8.5" aluminum mod with original gold centers. I'd really love to find a match for a spare!!!



I'm looking to purchase a 15x8.5" aluminum mod wheel with gold anodized center.

I run a 265/75 16. (32x11). I believe the wheels are around 3.5" backspace. I think they look great on my CJ.

I wish they would reproduce the original AR Vector turbines in a few of the common bolt patterns. Like these:


'84 CJ-7: Yota axles (spartan locked front, e-locked rear) 4" BDS, 1" Daystar & 3/8" shackle lifts, 35" X-Terrains on steelies, YJ Tub & family roll bar, heater blower upgrade, 4.2L w/MC2100 & Team Rush, Warn 8274. Rebuilt 4.2/4.0 hybrid, AX15 and twin sticks/clocking ring waiting to go in.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.
<------------and yes, that is her.
:-D
