Those are sweet. I choose the old Rugged Ridge wheels because they were hubcentric and looked good. I'll bet these will be good sellers...

Great timing! I was sitting here tonight trying to decide between AEV Savegre's or XD Cranks for my new JKU. This look like a great mix of the two and hubcentric.

Any promo shots other than this one maybe showing the black wheel?



Can I order these with Duratracs installed from EAD?

I like the gun metal, and am shopping for wheels. Not familiar with RR quality on their wheels. I am new to the Jeep market. Might be a little pricey too.

I have the RR wheels paired with Goodyear Duratracs. For about a year and a half .
the Wheels have seen 2 winters, daily driver. Still look NEW!.
Hub Centric for Wranglers!

Love them, No issues, and look awesome!

The NEW style looks awesome too, and the new design appears even easier to clean

Alec is da man!
Received the wheels on Thurs, mounted to new 35" BFG KM2's this morning.
Look even better than I had envisioned, just wish they had machined accents like the factory Rubicon wheels. 2.5" TeraFlex Coil lift.

The aluminum would look great on the new Freedom Edition with the mineral gray grill.

i've got dozer 13 Sahara 2 door. Want to get rid of the stock bumpers, and am thinking of ace pro series. I mention because then there is no more silver on the jeep, so I thing black would be slick looking on it. Opinions?

Think I'm going with gunmetal; can always Plasti-Dip smoke or black them out.

But the black satin's are tempting too.

yeah they seriously need more pictures. i am on the fence and cannot find great photos, specifically if the billet colored ones.

i also like the black satin original ones and would paint the rim protector my accent color or billet silver.

Man, I'm digging these wheels! Would love to see them on a Billet JKU...

Hub centric is the way to go too!
