I know you mentioned it for the 72 but since the Chaos is the same brand can the hub work on that wheel also?

No confusion about hub rings or spacers. Opinions vary regarding any effectiveness of rings in correcting related vibration. I will certainly check my local DT the next time I have them balanced to see if they can use a ring during instal. I believe it is more related to the tire and it's ability to balance properly with or without road forced balancing. I've had 5 sets of tires and 3 sets of wheels. The duratracs unfortunately seem to be the ones needing balancing about every 3-4K miles.

Not sure if this is a widespread issue for them and others on the board.

There are currently no rings produced in the size needed for the Chaos 5 and JK application. We only have rings for the 15x8 MB72. The MB72 utilizes a 78.1mm hub bore and the Chaos 5 utilizes a 83.7mm hub bore.

We sell hub centric rings for $15.00 (covers all 4 wheels) but since you purchased these wheels from us they will be FREE. We include hub centric rings with all wheel purchases (when applicable) at no additional cost. If your local store does not have the rings in stock (product code 80466) we can ship a set to you.

I should note here that we just recently received rings for the 15x8 MB72 so purchases made in the past will not have come with hub centric rings.

So these rings won't work for the MB TKO's either?

The TKO also utilizes the 83.7mm hub bore so there are currently no applicable rings.

Just spoke with DTD about them sending out the free hug centric rings for my MB wheels. I'll have them put on as soon as I get them and I'll let everyone who is curious about them and whether they help or not know then.

Here's a quick run down on hub centric rings for those that may have missed it. (also posted in this thread , post #67)

First, some terms you will need to know.
  • “Hub Centric Wheels”
Hub centric wheels have a center bore that matches the vehicle’s hub pilot.
  • “Non Hub Centric Wheels”
Non hub centric wheels have a larger center bore than the vehicles hub pilot.
What are hub centric rings?
Hub centric rings, typically made of plastic or metal, are designed and used to fill the gap between the hub pilot of the vehicle and the center bore of the wheel.

Here's what the hub pilot, the center bore of a wheel, and hub centric rings look like:




What purpose do hub centric rings serve?
A hub centric ring’s sole purpose is to help align and center the wheel and tire assembly on the vehicle’s hub pilot. Once the wheel assembly is torqued, the hub centric ring’s job is complete. Hub rings help reduce and can eliminate wheel and tire vibrations caused during installation.
Do all wheels need hub centric rings?
No, not all wheels need hub centric rings.

Wheels that are “Hub Centric” for the vehicle will fit over the vehicles hub pilot without any gap. All original equipment and some aftermarket wheels are hub centric but most aftermarket wheels are not hub centric.

Wheels that are "Non Hubcentric" can be mounted without hub rings if the proper time and care it taken to center the wheel on the vehicles hub during installation.
I read that you have to run hub centric rings on non hub centric wheels or the lug nuts/studs will break do to extra load. Is this
true?
This is not the case. The vehicles hub pilot, studs, and lug nuts are not load bearing. What actually holds a wheel on the vehicle is force friction that is created once the lug nuts are torqued to specifications set by the vehicle manufacturer.
How are hub centric rings sized?
Hub centric rings are sized by the outer diameter to inner diameter. The outer diameter is the hub bore of the wheel and the inner diameter is the hub pilot on the vehicle.
Here's an example:

The hub pilot on a 2000 Nissan Altima is 66.1mm. The hub bore on the 17x7 Konig Unknown (a popular wheel for this application) is 73.1mm. From looking at the hub pilot and hub bore specs, we know there is a 7mm. gap. To fill this gap a hub centric ring is used. The correct ring size for this particular application is 73.1(Outer Diameter) to 66.1(Inner Diameter).

Most aftermarket truck/SUV wheels are not hub-centric and for the most part, do not have an applicable ring. Trucks and SUVs typically utilize larger tires/sidewalls which helps absorb any vibrations caused by wheel off-centerness that may have occurred during installation. However, more and more wheel manufacturers are including hub-centric rings with their truck and SUV wheels.

Discount Tire ?

The wheels I like (MB 72 matte black) never seem to have five in stock.

As an alternative do these wheels; Cragar Black Soft 8 15X8 5-5 -13B, clear a 2011 Jeep JK brakes/calipers?
What is the back spacing?
What is the weight difference?

thanks

15" steel wheels will not clear the brakes on the JK without spacers or modifications to the calipers (both not recommended). All the 15" alloy wheel models linked below are guaranteed to fit stock.

The gorilla rings in size 83-71.5 will have a little bit of play since the bore on the TKO and Chaos is 83.7, which is just over 1/2mm. Not much of a difference but it can affect how the wheel centers.

Any word on BFG's broken mold yet? Are they looking at getting more KM2s and ATs out there anytime before summer?

The 35x12.50-15 KM2 and T/A KO are still on back order. According to BFG the KM2 should be available in about 12 weeks. There is no ETA on the T/A KO at this time.

Hi, im a new JK Jeep wrangler sport 2012 owner. I currently have the ugly stock 16's on, and have been given premission to spend no more than 1800 on my new wheels and tires. im looking for 5, cause i want the spare to match. im wondering if i have sufficent funds to do a small lift or maybe a cheap balancing lift, to keep any rubbing if i go off road. also, would the lift be something i could do, or should i get someone with a shope that knows how to do it? if i have funds. i was looking at putting 15' wheels and up to 33 inch tires. i do like the look of the duratracs, and the mb72 wheels, im looking for black wheels nothing fancy. i like the tire look, and i dont mind if the tires stick out. i like that look, i just dont want any rubbing if i hit a bump or pot hole or turn a cornor..

Yes to all.

The tire/wheel set up noted here mounted/balanced free at Discount Tire, plus a 2.5" budget boost installed by yourself or a friend, minus the cost recouped by selling your current wheels/tires on Craigslist, will likely equal less than $1800. That'll yield no rubbing.

Cost depends on what you want. There's no limit to what you can spend.

5 Tires ($195 each): Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires - Reviews, ratings and specs in the Raleigh/Durham Area - Discount Tire/America's Tire

5 Wheels ($95 each): Wheel Details - Discount Tire

Decent Budget Boost ($360): Teraflex 1355210 - TeraFlex 2.5" Budget Boost & Shock Adapters for 07-12 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

That shakes out to $1810. They'll be a few more bucks for moving your TPMS sensors and the like, but that gives you a rough estimate. Here's a cheaper budget boost if money's super tight.

Got my MB72's and dura's in today. I'm surprised they got here this fast since the wheels have been backed up.
Ordered them last week, wednesday or thursday. and they came in today.

Preston777, thanks for your support. It's always a good surprise to get something new sooner than you excepted.

wow, thanks, great response. one more quick question, if i put the nxt smallest size on. it looks like Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires - Reviews, ratings and specs in the Raleigh/Durham Area - Discount Tire/America's Tire 31X10.50R15C1 109Q W they are a bit cheaper, would I be less likely to need the lift and/or would they fit . I am guessing if I dont lift the difference in look from 33 to 31 are not that great, the tire is still agressive and I could still handle light trails, light mud with no lifting. once i got a lift I could eventurally upgrade to the 33's ? just looking at options. I am not good in a shope so i would prob. have to get someone to install the lift, and im not sure what that would cost.. also, would i need to get a special tire carrier for my larger tire? or will the stock 2012 one on my jeep handle up to a 33 inch with no issues?

No way I would go with anything less than 33s on a JK. You can fit them just fine without a lift and will have no problems on road. Offroad, you will get a bit of fender rub during moderate articulation.

As for the lift (when the time/money comes), a budget boost or leveling kit is a pretty simple install. Try to track down some local Jeepers and have an install party. You provide the grub and brews and they help with the install and provide some tools if needed.

Your stock tire carrier will hold the 33 fine. Will probably need to get some Daystar extended bumpstops though.

Just ordered my 33 DT from Discount Tire last Friday. Ups brought them tues. mounted them myself on 15 x 8 US Wheel Daytonas with 4 BS and used Dyna Beads to balance. They are on now with no lift. Quick service and a great price!
