Black Rhino Wheels

I'm waiting on delivery of my new 2011 Wrangler Unlimited, and I know that I want to put on new wheels right away and flip those raised white letters to blackwalls.

I've been looking at the Black Rhino Sidewinder wheels. Anybody have any experience with these wheels? Here's the link: Truck Wheels | Lifted Truck Wheels | Off Road Truck Wheels | SUV Wheels by Black Rhino

I don't see the correct bolt pattern listed for the ones I like there.... Which wheel were you looking at? The 5x114.3 will require adapters for a JK.

We did a tire test using a set of these last year in Moab. It may sound silly to a lot of people here (it did to us too) but we wanted to see exactly how well 20" wheel and tires would fair offroad. We bolted up some 37" tires on 20" wheels (8.5" of sidewall) and side from the wheel damage there wasn't much they couldn't do. (compared to 17" wheels with 35" tires(9" of sidewall)). Here's a pic...

Hey Discount Tire, nice to see the source is right here. Question for you: do you have Sidewinder wheels in the correct bolt pattern for 2011 JK Unlimited or do I need an adapter?

They are available in the correct 5x127 bolt pattern. Here's a link to the 17" for your new Jeep. Congrats by the way. You're going to have a lot of fun with your new Jeep.

The stock 2011 wheels are 18" not 17". Do you still have the correct bolt pattern for the 18" wheels?

There are 16, 17 and 18" wheel options for the 2011 Wranglers. I assumed yours had 17" because that is the most common. Here's a link to the 18" option, yes, the 5x127 bolt pattern and correct offset/Backspace is available in 18":

Nope - stock for the 2011 Jeep Wrangler is 17" wheels. If you got 18" wheels, they were not on the invoice from the manufacturer and were added by a dealership. About half of the Rubicon's on my lot have the $3600 upgraded tire/wheel package that you are talking about.

(whoops, meant to post a pic of mine ... which is stock)

This is fresh off the lot - my first Jeep. I didn't know the ins and outs of cleaning up after a little off-roading but I am learning. After seeing this thread, I might have to go with the sidewinders too. Still looking.

xYike,

Just looked at my build sheet and dealer invoice (it's a JKU Sahara) -- there is no charge for 18" wheels/tires. It was delivered with 18s. Hmmm.... either way, I love it. FYI, talked to Discount Tire and those Sidewinders won't be back in stock until March or April (no guarantee even on those dates though). I'm looking for something else now.

Black Rhino has a few new designs that should be out in the spring as well. They've got the specs on their website. If you can wait we would be happy to help you with them when they are available.

If you are wanting something soon we've got Liquid Metal Gatlins in stock. PM me or call us if you are interested.
