Black Rhino Armory

In the very near future I am looking at getting 5 Black Rhino Armory wheels 17x9 in black with some BFG 285/75/17s mounted up. Putting these on my new Black 2018 Wiilys 2 door with the Mopar 2 inch lift kit. Thoughts? Any issues with sizing or rubbing?

Just ordered a set in desert sand for my gobi jkur. I believe they are 9.5 wide with 4.5 backspace. Should fit without spacers i'm hoping.

Black Rhino Arsenal

Having looked closer at the Armory, I finally noticed that the wheel is not all black. It is Gun Metal with black accents. As I have an all black Willys, I want to go with an all black wheel. So I started my search again. Thanks to others on here, I found the newly released, Feb 18, Black Rhino Arsenal.

All black and textured. Love it. Went to the local Discount Tire and they are unable to advise when these will be available. Anybody have any insight as to when we can actually lay our hands on these as TSW/Black Rhino indicates that these are released in Feb 2018?

Thanks!

Just mounted a set of armory’s on my JL 17x9.5 offset is -18. 285/70/17. The Arsenal is a nice wheel but I was told that they aren’t coming till March and the offset is -12. I ended up going with a different wheel to mock my old jk so if you change your mind on the armory’s I have a set for you! Haha here’s a photo of what it would look like on tires

Black Rhino Arsenal

Thanks for the offer, I really want the all black look. Just checked the specs on the Arsenal and it shows a -18 offset just like the Armory. Just too bad the Armory does not come all black as I like it better.

Just installed Desert Tan Armory on JKUR Gobi. AEV 2.5 Dualsport lift and 315/70/17 KO2. Weight went from stock rubi 72.5 lb to current 113.0 lb. Drives and rides great. Right now set to 30 psi but i'm gonna chalk them if it ever dries out. They stick out a little past the fenders but not as much as I thought they would.

Those look pretty good. Looks to be a pretty close match on color. I have a Mojave Sand JKU, wonder how close the match would be.

Were the armory wheels hub centric to the Jeep 71.5?
