Very nice wheels. Are they hub centric for JK? Specs say 83.7mm hub bore, but I believe JK has 71.5mm.

Kevinistic Alan, nice looking ride! I have a Sahara that I just picked up 3 days ago. I'm set on the Goodyear tire, but am still wheel shopping. :-)

I was wondering if you had a lift on this Rubi? Forgive me, but I can't tell :-)

Updated Pictures

Do you have updated pictures of the Kick Cepek wheels I'm looking at the same from my 2013 to up 35 12.50's on.

TJNewbie Sorry 'bout that, I missed that you've got a JK. I've got a TJ, backspacings are gonna be different.

Stock wheel backspacing is like 6.25".

I ordered the 17x9s.

Dick Cepek Gun Metal 7 Wheel Sizing Help

I'm looking at the Dick Cepek Gun Metal 7 wheels for my 2012 JKUR:

Dick Cepek Tires & Wheels

There are two sizes available, 17x8.5 and 17x9.

I'm wondering which width would be a better choice.

The 17x8.5 have 5.5" backspacing, 19mm offset, and weigh 29 lbs.

The 17x9 have 4.5" backspacing, -13mm offset, and weigh 32 lbs.

I want to run a 315/70R17 Goodyear Duratrac tire which calls for an 8.5" to 10" wheel width.

I'm thinking the 17x9 is the way to go, right?
