New Wheels - your opinion

I am getting a new set of wheels for my JK'12.
I got a quote from a local auto styling shop. For some reasons, the tire that they quoted me does not seem to exist. The total quote is $3000.

5 x Moto Metal 962 (18x9) = $1000
Leveling kit = $300
M/B = $120
5 x Toyo AT II 33', 12.5 = $1580 - This price seems normal for MT.

I can find the 33" with that spec for Toyo except for MT. Am I missing something? Perhaps your expert opinion will help me. Appreciate your response.

Thank you.

Troy Lim

Toyo does make a 33x12.5R18 tire that would fit on those 18" Moto wheels. However, if you have the Sahara 18"wheels I would take the opportunity to switch to a more common wheel size like 15-17" which is more popular and hence availability and prices will be better.

Maybe they converted the metric sizes to a ball park for you? I'd ask because if it's not on Toyo's web site then I'd doubt it's existence.

That spec exists but only showing for MT, not AT. AT does not exist for ATII.
I just have regular sports. I like the look of Moto 962.
I can't locate it on their website.

not a bad wheel, personally i would've went with a dot beadlock if i could go back. or something steel with a rock ring. any ways. 962 decent wheel imo. as for size, why not switch to a 17, tires come down in price and once you get on the trails, having a little more tire will help. 1500 seems like quite a bit, i payed a little more for 37s.... just food for thought.

Now before you buy go online to discount tire or tire package and compare. You can probably knock off $1000 bucks going to a 16-17" rim and have more variety in tire.
18" is not a common size so you will be paying a premium for that.
To compare. I am sitting on 5 - 35" Pitbulls on BlackRock Viper wheels, installed and balanced came in under $2800.
Shop around, there are lots of deals out there and good vendors on here.

Pro Comp 52 15x8 around $50 each, no fit problems and you can get 35x12.50-15s for $225ish a tire.

Love my 15" wheels, tires much cheaper and more sidewall for wheeling. Only drawback is if you want to go 37s you are limited to Pitbull, Interco, and Toyo. I'm okay with that since ill be going which pitbulls or interco anyway.

Just my 2 cents

The wheels look nice! Not my favorite size & style for a Jeep, but I'm sure they serve the purpose you want them to. How do they ride compared to stock? A bit rougher?

Yeah, I don't go rock climbing or mudding much, more for the look. They ride almost as nice as the stock, could not tell any difference.
