jayz..Keep in mind that SOME inspection stations can be b-tards for tires sticking out. The last time I had my Narrow track'd, wrangler 33x12.50's installed, they G-year store acted like they did me a favor inspecting it! And I never really cared for turbines. UNTIL I gave them to my little bro. He did right right by exactly copying my 7 in his CJ5!

Those would be my ideal rims if they still made them

Damn nice 5! Yea I know some inspection stations go by the book...that tells u they have been burned at some point. I have 15x10 with 4" backspace and they only stick out an inch in the front and flush in the rear with stick flares. I hate how the back is flush! The AMC 20 must be a little shorter. I like when the tires stick out just a little. I thought about spacers but I'm afraid to run them.

Mickey Thompson has a set of wheels I like with 3 5/16 backspace but everyone has them. The other reason I like those is because of the trim rings. That way if I hit a rock while wheeling I can replace the ring and the wheel is still good...idk, just can't get everything I want in one?

Only $675 US shipping to NZ which would make it about $3k NZ for the set.... Ouch

The best look on the CJ's IMO are the Mickey Thompson classic II locked or stock or the pro comp edition listed on the first page.
I run the classic II's and I'm having the locks put on mine.
