Those Nitto Grappler's look mean! A perfect match with those flat black wheels

shiner73 did you have to put a lift on your jeep for those rims and tires?

The rims and tires fit without a lift and without any rubbing. I did add a 2" budget lift and posted before and after pics a few days ago (Skyjacker 2" value lift kit). If you get these rims make sure you use short open ended lugs and not the acorn style lugs. The acorn style lugs are too long and wont allow you to mount the center cap.
