I'm Jones'n to see the 32" tires w/ black wheels mentioned here: http://www.allpar.com/news/index.php...minor-upgrades

I think they'd look sharp on a flame red 2dr.

I'm not going to order one sight unseen though.

When will we get wheels (optional) with better than 6.5 inch backspace! That's what I want. ! Aftermarket wheels are even worse that the factory wheels. so why not give us the wheel choices when we ORDER!!!!!!

roger, Sahara tan was a great one... I also liked the gun metal blue gray they had on wranglers in the late 90s, that was great color

What I mean to say is I want my stock JK Rubicon Wheels with 4.5" BS not 6+. I love my stock wheels but I really don't want to use spacers!!!!

I totally agree! I love how the wheels look! I think spacers might be in my future!

Why does Jeep make their stock wheels so 'deep'? Is there some advantage to having 6+ inches of BS?

Thanks,

John

the only other wheels that I like as much are the AEV wheels. I don't have 250 each to buy those! Besides I would pick the stock rubi wheels out of a line up any way! So why not have the available in 4.5"bs!!!!!

CAN YOU HEAR ME JEEP??

Not you NSA, I know you can hear me....

I still wonder, why the BS is > 6 inches?

if something less is better?

I also got my 2nd e-mail from jeep... says it is scheduled for production in the next 2 weeks and gave the last 8 digits of the VIN .... went with the dune rubi 4dr... I also miss sahara tan it was a great color... here is my situation.. trying to preorder my lift and bumpers and my local custom shop says the distributer ( smittybuilt and rubicon express) discouraged the purchase because they had not seen specs on the 14's.... it is my understanding that the 14's are JK with no structural changes from 13... how can I confirm this ??? I would like to have my parts in hand at delivery..
