Military style wheels for TJ

I figured this would be a no brainer that the aftermarket would offer Willies MB style wheels for ALL jeeps. After multiple searches, I'm coming up with nothing. Is there a company that offers these wheels in multiple widths? Like 8 or 10". I'm talking about the wheels from the WWII jeeps.

First, Willys Jeeps all had 5 on 5.5" lug patterns, and TJ's are 5 on 4.5" pattern.
Most of those were either 5.5" or 6" wide, 16" diameter.

I think he's looking for the style... not the original actual wheels.

These look sort of like early Jeep wheels. Sorta.

Actually, these Gennie wheels would be a close look. These are 15X8.

Willys right. Sorry. But they could still be made with the appropriate lug pattern and sizes. Yearone makes the classic stock wheels from muscle cars in non-stock sizes.

All the ones I just posted are the correct lug pattern.

Yeah, those really are pretty close. If there wasn't the spacing between the center plate and the rim, it would be very close.

Here, these are all 15X8, 5 on 4.5" pattern. You can choose the back space you want, as well as wheel width.

Well, most WWII Jeeps (MB) had "combat wheels" which were two piece bolt together wheels, so they had visible bolts around them, so you won't match those anyhow.

Stockton Wheel might have what you want, but they're pricey.

Just for reference, this is what I'm talking about, preferably in a 10' rim. Thanks Patrick H for your help. Im going to contact the company offering the red rims and see if there are any options as far as sizes go.

Yep, those are combat wheel repops. I seriously doubt you'll find anything besides 5 on 5.5" pattern and 5.5" width.

Try looking here. Gets you close, but not perfect.
