Smile my new soft 8s

I picked up a set of 15x8 soft 8s about a month or so ago to replace the beat to hell and way to wide Pacer 15x10s that are on my YJ. After losing way to many beads on my last trail run I called up Zach at AtoZ fab and got a set of DIY rings. Got them welded up yesterday now just need to paint then start the slow process of mounting the pitbulls to them.

All welded up

got the other 3 finished up today and mounted on the jeep. Its nice to have a narrower stance again and actually have a turning radius. The old 15x10s were just to wide and way too much off set.

before


after

Looks much better. What was the backspacing on those 15x10s? They look like they only have about 2-3 inches AT MOST!!!!
