mopar winter wheels 52124455AB

i have been thinking about swapping the stock wheels on my future jku to the mopar 52124455AB winter wheels. i liked the simplicity and how they looked on the allpar overland concept rig. But I have not been able to see a set mounted in all of my searches besides the allpar concept and they look totally different than the ones i see listed on quadratech. furthermore it looks like there are less expensive wheels out there with a similar look like the cragar soft 8.

Anybody out there have em or have had them any pictures or comments? Thanks in advance.

Aren't those the ones off of a Ram that actually don't fit a JK unless you change the bolt pattern?

They're not very wide but the bolt pattern matches.

Scott's running spacers to fit the 35s. Not many people have them because of the price I think.

not accourding to all the articles i have read it sounds like they are the wheels that are shipped out as the spares for the grand cherokee. there are some good shots here: Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon - Warn Winch - 4 Wheel Drive & Sport Utility Magazine


quadratech has them fitting the 2011jk here:
MOPAR 52124455AB - MOPAR® 17x7.5" Winter / Off-Road Steel Wheel for 99-11 Jeep® Vehicles with 5x5 Bolt Pattern - Quadratec

after seeing a better close up maybe they are not as different as i thought. Its just hard to read the shape of the wheel with a strait on photo. The only difference seems to be one of the thru holes has a larger diameter.

Yessir i spose if your going to pay 92 per wheel you might just pay 135 on ge4t some fancy alu wheels. i thought 92 per was pretty good since i pay about 300 per wheel for my mountain bikes. Thanks for the photos and the help.

They would be fine.
You could also consider 255/85-17 (BFG only size) and 265 series. Some of the 275s would start to rub.

Do you really like them or something? I mean, they're sorta heavy, sorta expensive, sorta narrow, sorta have a poor backspace, .... ...not trying to piss on your Cherios, just sayin'...

I just bought two more ProComp Xtreme Alloys for my trailer and they were $95 each.

Yea i really like the look but the weight and some of the other limitations are starting too give me pause. the dealer put the weight at 70 extra pounds (all 5) so an extra 14 pounds per wheel. sounds like that wouldnt be good for acceleration and mpg.

My other thought would be to get the stock wheels powder coated. but i would think that would be about 100 per wheel by the time i pull them off strip them coat them and remount and balance. plus the down time.

decisions decisions

Do they all have the one off centered hole like that? The pictures I've seen on qudratec of for sale winter/off-road mopar wheels show all the holes equally spaced. If so, I assume this off centered (closer to rim) hole is for the valve stem.

I know this thread is old, but just wondering how these are holding up?

rubbing issues? mounting/balancing issues? affect on mileage?

what tire are you running?

yes and I wasnt even suscribed???

they have held up great. there is a little rust but a can of paint would solve it quick enough. I picked up some mineral grey moabs with some bridgestone MATs so i have been storing them till winter.

Milleage has been the same since i swapped. I was a little concerned about the weight but i still like the look. If i had to do it over i might have just gotten the cragers...not sure

Commando Green Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon & Mopar Winter Wheels

Yes I am running them when I go off-road and over the winter months to protect my original Rubicon wheels from the corrosion you get from the salt during winter up north.

I sent Prismatic Powders a bolt from my Jeep and they matched the Commando Green paint and supplied me Commando Green Powder Coat. I think it worked out really well.

The Mopar Winter Wheels give the Jeep more of a BAD ASS rugged and purpose built look. The stock rims have too much BLING for me.

To be completely honest with you, I'd sell the OE Rubicon wheels and run the Winter/Offroad wheels all the time. They look great.

I have a set just sitting in here because the offset and the fact I didn't want to use spacers.

I'm pretty sure they are the same specs as the OE wheels. Like I said. I have set and they look the same.

The more I look at these wheels, the more I am thinking about dumping the Rubicon stockers.

I am considering doing a dark gray powder coat for something other than black.

Man, those look awesome!! Those are the rims I want to get. Kinda remind me of a stock no frills military style rim. Where is the best price to buy these at? I was pondering the idea of painting these in dune to match my jeep, but I would be content with black too.
