I used to have the exact one.I had problems with my valve stems ripping off when aired down wheeling.It happened to me twice so i switched over to another wheel where the valve stem is somewhat in the center.

Click on my Jeep profile if you want to see pix when i had it.

Keep the alloys, they are better for wheeling and for your axles over steelies

If you are referring to me then no i didnt use spacers.I used 17s on mine not 15s when i had the steel.That model i beleive has 3.75 backspacing so if you go with it you dont need spacers.

Yes this price is correct and it is exactly what I paid. These wheels are steel rather than alloy which will usually drive the price way down. I could not justify paying close to $200 per wheel just to get some flashy looking rims on my Jeep. Personally I think that plain old steel wheels look better on Wranglers rather than the other flashy kinds you see around. Again, that is just my opinion.

Are they heavy? They compare in appearance to the MB72s, which are about $100 each. However, I like the fact that the MB72s--which are alloy--are so lightweight.

That is the one drawback of these wheels. They are pretty heavy. I'm not sure what the actual weight is though.
