The low offsets will limit how this wheel populates on our site because the these wheel models will poke out of the fender a little.

Let us know if we can helo you with a fitment.

17" is the new 15" these days. I'll always prefer a 15" rim on a wrangler.

If you're looking for new rims, no need to stay with an 18". Go with a 15,16 or 17" and tires will be considerably cheaper and plenty of choices!

There is a link in the first post to prices for almost all sizes. Here it is again if you missed it: Black Rhino wheels; Sizes, Specs, Prices and availability - Prices are per wheel, shipping is FREE. Add what you wish to your cart or call us for more help.

15" sizes are limited but there are a few that will work on the new Jk. xxss mentioned a few of them. The Mb Chaos 5 in 15" is also a great option.

(I've been pushing for a 15x9 but I have yet to get one of our wheel manufacturer's to make one)

Black Rocks have worked for others

If you prefer steels

There are others as well. Backspacing is key.

Thank you!

Correct.

Is it physically possible? Yes, but we won't recommend it. 37" tires are wider than what is recommend for your stock wheels. They are also too wide for the high offset/ backspace that your stock wheels have. This can create a number of issues, some you can see and some you can't. If you want to run a 37" tire on your Jeep I would recommend upgrading to a wider wheel with the correct backspacing specs as well. A lift or flat fenders may also be needed if you don't already have them.

Discount Tire These are all new designs and not all of them have hit warehouses yet. Black Rhino expects more part numbers to arrive throughout the summer. When you are ready to make your purchase give us a ring and we'll be happy to get an accurate ETA for you.

El Gringo Ok that's what I figured, I found them by looking by size. I don't see the Black Imperial though.

They won't show up in a search by vehicle because the offset/backspace will place them outside your fenders.

The 17x9 -12mm option here will fit lifted and non lifted wranglers but they will stick out beyond the fenders by about 3/4".

Here's a link to the 17" Keyhole: Black Rhino Keyhole custom rims
