Wheels

I want to put new wheels on cause I need new tires.
Cant decide on which wheeLs? What do you all like?

Tires are bfg 265/75/16 A/T

Wheels either ATX Mojave or Black rock.

The mojaves are alloys, and the black rock steel

Will the finish hold up on the Blac rock?
Will they make my tires stick further out?
Will the tires be further out help improve handling?

Want the tires to have some bulge lol. should I get 7 or 8 inch wheels?

yeah, huh?? Lol.

Well, I like the Black rocks design and deep dish, also the price $60 a wheel, then I could do all 5. But I am worried if the finish will hold up, and if they push the tire out???


The Mojaves are alloy with a teflon coating, but cost 160 a wheel (ouch).
I checked them out at Tire R@ck.com, and you can see them on "your" vehicle. They are kinda flat, making the jeep look more military than trail, I want it to look trail

You just answered your own question! You just want some reinforcement on your decision.

True

Just wondering if the black rocks finish will hold up.
And will it move the tires further out?
Also 7 or 8 inch wide, to acheive a "bulge" in a 265/75/16 bfg a/t?

For the bulge I think you should go with a 7" wide since your tires are 7.5 width...

The finish should hold up fine on either wheel unless you are in the habit of scraping curbs or rocks and such. Ever look at a well worn teflon pan? It's mostly just going to keep crap from sticking to it. The painted steel can be touched up, teflon, not so much. Aluminum is lighter. Backspacing on the wheels is what is going to make them stick out from the Jeep. What is the bs on each one? And yeah, if your tires are only 7.5" wide, then you would want a 7" rim.

This is how you measure backspacing, the yellow tape measure is measuring the wheel's backspacing. The more backspacing the wheel has, the more into the wheelwell it is positioned.

I.E. A wheel with 4.5" of backspacing will protrude out of the wheelwell 1" further than a wheel with 5.5" of backspacing will. Factory wheels typically have 5.25" to 5.5" of backspacing.
