5 on 5 bolt pattern sucks

Its relly hard to find anything good out there for it. i was looking at some forged aluminum rims, and there is nothing... Weld does not make it due to low demand. They even stopped the 4.5 on 5.

We need to get 5 on 5.5 back!

Those are nice.... I have been looking for something with a beadlock around the outside. Most likely it will be a fake. But... There is nothing out there.

It is a really hard bolt pattern to find stuff for. If you a have the money/means you can get whatever wheels un drilled and have the 5on5 pattern drilled into them.

You know who has the money/means? Wheel manufacturers!! They won't take long to start offering more 5on5s....

I talked with Weld today, pretty high up, and they are not interested in making the 5 on 5 , at all. not enough people buy them. I dont understand why jeep did not do 5 on 5.5. would have been the same as Dodge 1/2 tons, and been stronger.

just have to have the flanges redrilled. also wheel spacer/adapters are actually a nice thing for gaining flex clearance anyways.

Yeah, guess Weld will lose business to the guys who jump on the Wrangler 5on5 surge in demand quicker than they do.

Up to this point, there has been no demand. Over the next several years, there will be significantly increased demand. There will be some smart companies who start building 5on5s and there will be some dumb companies who don't move fast enough and miss out. It's just like any other market and industry.

They make 5on5 to 5on4.5 or 5.5 spacers.

I was going to go that route before I found some decent 5on5 wheels.

Im not sure I want spacers. If I would, It would have to have the offset of the rim adjusted to make it look right.

Weld builds some pretty high end rims, and I am unsure of the market demand for those high end rims for an offroad vehicle. I will have 2 sets of tires, one for offroad, and another for on road. But I dont see that as the norm.
