AEV Savegre vs. Mopar Classic 5 Hole

I'm confused and need forum support. I was under the impression the AEV Savegre wheel was a 5.2" backspacing and the Mopar Classic 5 Hole version was 4.7".

Today I called a dealership and they said the Mopar wheel is actually 5.2". He then called Chrysler support and said, "Ok I got an answer. The official records show 5.2 but he thinks that is measured to the end of the rim where the 4.7" is coming up because that is only measured to the lip."

Mopar Part #P5155978

What do you think... is this the same wheel, just measured differently? I'm about to install larger tires and I want to prevent any backspacing issues. Am I asking for problems if I plan to install 35's down the road? Mopar and AEV are marketing these rims as accepting 35's.

Looks the same to me? The pintler wheels are advertised as 5.2" backspacing as well but measure closer to 4.7" if you measure it yourself.
And it works fine for 35x12.50s.

Same wheel.

AEV makes several products for MOPAR.

So the only difference is the center cap? One has the AEV logo and the other is the Jeep logo?

That fits with everything I've read on these. Which one's cheaper? The AEV versions retail for about $226 each, but I haven't priced the Mopar.

AEV tends to be cheaper. The lowest price Mopar version is over $240.

Bought my pintlers thru Mopar and my dealer. It actually comes with blank caps and stick on Jeep or AEV logos.
