17 Fuel Offroad mavericks machined/black by MHT.
Cons - Made in China (like most others) I didn't know this until they were already slapped on. Not a big fan of made in China wheels since my last set of made in china were bent after 2 years on a lowered import (just 1 wheel perhaps from a pothole.)
Made in Japan or USA would give me more peace of mind.
- like most others, centercaps are plastic and require an Allen wrench. 2 real screws, the rest are dummies. No biggie, but when ur out in the middle of nowhere and have to change a spare, u need to be prepared.

Other than that, it's beautiful. A lot of detail, and very lightweight. I dunno the exact amount, but i was leaning toward the method wheels and once i picked the methods up, it was apparent that the mavericks were much lighter. Regarding the "made in china" part, fuel offroad tested em u guessed it....Offroad and they held up pretty good on high speed desert runs/jumps. If they can take that kind of abuse, I'm cool with that.

Beautiful! Thanks for taking the time to reply and post a pic of your gorgeous Jeep.

Are there any wheels made in the USA these days?
