The stock 255/70/18 max recommendation is a 8.5" rim, but it will work on a 9".
Stock tires with -12 offset stick out a bit. I like the stance. It looks a lot more aggressive, and will only improve the look when bigger tires are added.
Btw, check out Extreme Customs in Oshkosh, WI. They have great, flexible prices, free shipping, free lugs.

where does one find powdercoater and roughly how much $$$.

Looking good. What's the backspacing on -12MM (4 1/2??). Looking at these rims but was concerned on the 9" width. Saw lots of threads saying 8.5" was max. Also, these are 5"BS so add another 2" out from stock. Will protrude some but not sure how bad. Stock backspacing doesn't leave a lotta room in that department. Are your 18X9's with stock tire flush with fender?

New rims 18x9 -12 on stock 255/70/18 tires for now.
Bought new TPMS sensors while I was in there anyway. The o-rings looked pretty worn.

So, searching and searching and looking for a shiny black rim to fit a stock tire on a 12 Sahara (aint no easy task). Most 18's are 9". Looking for non spoke but larger "holes" around perimeter. sorry, don't know proper terminology. Any luck out here? We can't be the only few who aren't lifting with 35' duratracs...
Thanks in advance. Might have to go 9" wide with a ~5" BS but need a bigger tire and would protrude from fender. Again, really looking to run as close to stock as possible.

I was initially looking for an 18" wheel that had a small enough back spacing so I could go to 33" tires later on. Not sure if 5.125" BS is enough to add 33" tires later though without rubbing with no lift. The magic number I think is closer to 4.5" BS. But another member on here had the same wheels and 33" Duratracs and they did not rub with no lift.

|wrz0170||Sorry for the hijack but I am interested in this too. Black wheels. Stock tires. Not quite ready for the new shoes. Dumb question but I assume we can just reuse the TPMS for the new wheels?|

I was in the exact same situation... I guess I sort of still am...
I have been debating wheels/tires for months. I talk myself in and out of getting 18" wheels and keeping the stock tires. I want a black wheel with slightly less backspacing to gain a slightly wider stance.
I looked into just about every 18" wheel and only found a few that would work with the stock 18" Dueler tires.
My favorite are Ultra Crushers in black. 18" x 8.5 with 5.125 BS which is just over an inch wider than the stockers. I like these as I love the stock spoke look but want black. I am not into plasti-dipping and Im not into using spacers. I like a wheel that is what I want rather than those two options.
Performance Plus and Tire Rack have them for the same price. $790 for a set of 5.

It's not hard to find 18 inch wheels, it's hard to find 18 inch wheels that also accepts the stock tires on 18" Sahara wheels.
Not planning on off road use or spending money on wheels AND tires... Just want the look of nice black rims.

|MTH||Why is it hard to find black 18" wheels? There are dozens and dozens available from many manufacturers.|
|12-26-2012 10:44 AM|
It looks like the level 8 trackers only come in 18x9... But aren't the stock Sahara wheels 18 x 7.5?
Would the stock tires fit an 18x9 wheel?

|RUBI13||I second the Level 8 Trackers! Much nicer look than MB72's.|
|12-26-2012 09:33 AM|
|Raiderfan001||MB72s are popular. I like the Level 8 Trackers.|
|12-26-2012 09:28 AM|
|Pattynole||why not just paint or plasti-dip what you have? i plasti-dipped the wheels that cam with my sahara and while it's not perfect, it works.|

black rims to fit stock JK Sahara Tires.
I am looking for a set of black matte rims to put on my JK Unlimited Sahara... The hard part is finding a decent pair that also fits with the stock tires on Sahara.
