How often does Jeep change wheel style?
 
How often does Jeep change the style of the wheels? I want to order a new JKUS but not too in love with the 2013 Sahara wheels. While I know no one knows for sure but is Jeep more than likely to use the same wheels on 2014s?

you can always get the exact wheels you want...you aren't forced to get any set of wheels...

You will always find plenty of whatever factory wheel you would want for sale. There's TONS of people that change theirs out as soon as they bring them home. Then just sell yours and recoup some of the money. :)

thats pretty much your answer...
i actually liked the optional 7 spoke Sahara wheels..they were a $695 option.... when i ordered my Jeep last month i DIDN"T add those wheels cuz i actually found a very low mileage set WITH tires for $700.... So when my Sahara arives i'll take off the stockers (which have a decent market interest cuz they are new for this year)..and sell them...maybe someone with an older Sahara of someone with a base Sport that wants to upgrade..
In the end i wil get the wheels i wanted for proabably very little if NO money at all...
and just a heads up your gonna get a bunch of guys telling you to sell the stock 18s and get new 16" wheels and tires cuz they are much cheaper...

P.S. if you like the pre 2013 Sahara wheel, there are a TON of them on the market...

Yes

They don't change too often. The Sport and Sport S have used the same wheel since 07. The Sahara and Rubicon had the same wheels from 07-12, this is the first year either have changed. It's likely they will use them for 14 and beyond.
