Anybody have Mickey Thompson Classic Lock Rims?

Yes I have them and love them. Wrapped them with MTZ's which I'm not thrilled with. Have 24,000 miles on them and they are about shot. They look nice and I'm sure they do the job they were intended for, mudding, but I have these on a daily driver and I need to get more than 24,000 miles out of a set of tires.

Thanks for replying and posting that picture they look really sweet. Also where did you get those flares and how much were they? I really like them.

I got the flares on ebay 2 years ago. Do a search for pocket fender flares. The seller I bought them from is rockriders-jeepstore. Much cheaper than the Bushwacker brand and seem to be well made.

Those wheels look good & I probably would have bought a set years ago but they don't come with much backspacing at all when you buy a 15x8 with the Wrangler's bolt pattern, it is only something like 3.25 or maybe 3.3". To me, that little amount of backspacing makes them protrude out of the wheel well too far. My present wheels have 3.75" of backspacing & I still wish I had a little more, 4" to 4.25" would be ideal for my 35" tires. :)
