Torfer Thank you for the feedback. I am planning on buying 5 new ones. Its good to know either ways I go, I cant go wrong. Now all I have to do is save up and try to sell the 4 I have left.

whitelespaul The guys at Fortec are great! They have done work on my Jeep and were first rate. Their attitude is that if the product isn't also first rate, they won't install it or sell it. They have a catalog that has a lot of details on what they sell. All of these wheels are made elsewhere and then marketed by various companies.

You need to match the backspacing of your spare with the other rims unless you plan to replace all 5. Wheel locks are cheap insurance; they were among the first things I installed on mine. I searched on this forum about the 33's and they will fit well on stock rims with the 6.25" backspacing so I don't think it will matter much whether your rims are 4.5" or 4.75". Go for the rim that looks best to you and has the best price. It also wouldn't hurt to call Fortec and get their recommendation.

Fortec or Rugged Ridge

Soo... I got my jeep about 3 months ago, and my spare tire was just stolen. I guess I am in the market for new wheels earlier than planed. I was looking at the Rugged ridge wheel 17x9 with 4.75 backspacing. Than I saw Fortec makes the same wheel with a 4.5 backspacing. There doesn't seem to be any information about the Fortec wheel. Anyone have some input or feedback on either of the wheels?
Also, I would like to put 33s on my Jeep. Would that make a difference on what wheels to get to prevent rubbing?
