Settle down it was an honest mistake. He read highlights as headlights. The lack of posts has been due to the fact that not many (if any) people have them. Just googled them, they seem to come in 20" sizes. You are not going to find too many people here that run 20" wheels unless they are running 40" tires. They also don't seem to be available in a Jeep Wrangler size, which is why no one is running them.

I'm settled, I thought it was pretty funny actually. Yes, I figured few folks have them, so few that I can't even find them on a Jeep on Google image search.

However, they do come in other sizes, i.e. 15s which is what I would get:
15" X 8" TUFF T02 ARMADA MONTERO ESCALADE WRANGLER 5/6 LUG BLACK WHEELS RIMS | eBay

Who knows, maybe I stumbled on what could be a new trend. I think they're pretty solid. Anyway, thanks for everyone's feedback

I see they come in 5x5. They don't list the backspacing so without that information, we can't really help you. They also don't list the weight. Furthermore, 15" wheels are not all going to fit. The JK requires a specific backspacing to fit a 15" wheel, so unless you can find out the backspacing, I wouldn't risk it.

not only the backspacing but also how the wheel is made, which is why a lot of steel 15" wheels dont work (mainly the 2 piece stamped models) i have 15" alloy's with 3.75" backspacing and they fit just fine. if you can find out the bs, you will know if they fit or not.

As for the wheel specs, they are a 5x5 with a -13mm offset (4" BS).

I just ordered a set of T02's this week, they should be in tomorrow. I will post a couple pics when they are mounted. I have had the hardest time finding any info or pics so I hope this will be useful.

They don't come in 20", they are available in 15x8 or 16x8 the former having 4" of backspace. Also they come in many bolt patterns, not just 5x5. I ordered the black with red accents to go on my 05' red tj (4.5x5). Can't wait to put them on and see how they look!

The large center cap that says "tuff" doesn't bother you? What about the fact that "tough" is being misspelled?

Why would the center cap bother me? It hides the lugs which I prefer. And the name of the offroad line for status wheels is tuff, why would I care if its its not spelled tough? I think it would look stupid if it was spelled correctly

Stuff like that obviously doesn't bug everyone which is why you see so many "rockstar" wheels on lifted pickups. To me it looks the same as writing "cheeseball". I guess I just aint a rockstar or tuff guy.

Here it is and I couldn't be happier! They look even better than I imagined. Next on the list is replacing those crappy RTS tires with some 31x10.5x15 General Grabber AT2's.

I just noticed while looking closer at these pics that a few of the red accents around the outside of the wheel are missing! Im actually pissed about it, I only drove about 15 mi on them so far. I contacted Status Wheels and left a message (its saturday and they're not open). I am still very happy with these wheels, but I will have to talk to them and see what they say. The red accents are actually little plastic inserts that sit in a groove. I hope this doesn't become an issue. I will post a follow up in a few weeks and let you know how they hold up and what the outcome is from Status.
