Fuel Revolvers

I just went and ordered the last 5 Fuel Revilvers in the US out of Washington State, but I am in NC. Are they good wheels? And also just ordered 5 General Crabber tires, they good also?

i have fuel wheels too. The only thing i don't like is that their made in china, and the location of the valve stems.

made in china is not a real issue. I'd rather have the wheels made in US or Japan, but its not a real biggie. Good stuff though.

Now the valve stems. If your planning to air down, i suggest purchasing something like the rugged ridge tire deflator. Its gonna be really hard to air down because of the location. The rugged ridge tire deflator will save you the headache. Also, airing up after a long day of wheeling when your body is already fatigued, you will have a hard time airing up too if at a gas station. best solution...Viair 400p.

With the combinations i have listed for you, it will save you less headaches when your out and about. other than that, fuel offroad makes one of the nicest set of wheels in the market today.

congrats on your purchase.

I just got a set of Fuel Frontiers.

Before I got them i called fuel twice and was told each time they were rated for 2,500 lbs. When I got them I found, cast into the wheel, a rating of 1,900 lbs

I'm disappointed that they lied to me and that the wheels are weaker than I wanted.

They also don't have recesses on the back where they sit against the axle flange, so you must remove the steel clips from the studs before you mount the wheels.

They are good looking wheels though. I am running P285/70/17 Toyo AT2 on 8 1/2 inch wheels with 5 1/2 inch backspacing and no lift. Perfect fit. Drives very well. The sidewall bulge is the only part sticking out beyond the fenders.

Each wheel and tire combo weighs 3.5 lbs more than the stock Rubi BFG tires.
