So happy you posted these. I've never seen them and have been browsing for rims while I wait for my 2014 order! These sure are a top contender!

I just looked them up and they are $400 each. I can't afford $2000 for rims. Oh Well. They are nice but not that nice!

even so, you will need to regear choosing those wheels unless you have a rubicon. Those walker evans/ or any beadlock wheels are pretty heavy.

Aside from the cost of the parts, what do you have to do when you regear your jeep? What other costs are involved?

i don't know what year your jeep is or what model, but rubicons come 3.73 or 4.10. all the others are 3.21 or 3.73.

costs to regear is anywhere from 1000-1500 depending on location.

A lower gear "4.10" for example will be able to run 35' tires without the jeep being a dog. A taller gear "3.21" is good for fuel economy but limited to 33's from a preferred standpoint.

at the end, it will be based on preference. It is NOT needed, but very desirable once you upsize your tires.

most people that don't have rubi's tend to get lockers as well when they regear.
