Matt from Discount Tires has been a great help and he updated me the status of the wheel constantly during the wait.
One word of advice, check to make sure all the rock ring bolts are tight.
Check the Rock Ring Bolts!!!!!!!!
Awesome looking wheels.

I will say this, if you air down frequently, then one of the Pro Series wheels may be best. The Pro Series wheels utilize modified bead retention seats which are designed to help keep the tire on the wheel when used off-road.
The Bully Pro are def in the lead, but the MB11 is a very close second!

They're a sharp looking wheel, look great in 33 or 35s!

I am starting to like these more and more. Would paint the rings red to match the red on my hard rock.

Also looking at the mopar beadlocks, but they're like 2x the price from what I can tell (granted, they're actual beadlocks).

the headlock bolt heads stick out on the Mopar headlock wheels. If you're going true headlocks there are better choices

Yeah but I really like the inner wheel design on the Mopar wheels. Hmmm, decisions, decisions. I'll keep looking and contemplating.

THE Mopar wheels look great...but there others out there with the nice inner wheel look and bolt heads that don't stick out. I forgot the brand names of these ones I saw but found them in the back of JP magazine. Also check out the Hutchinson street legal bead locks too.

These are sharp! Decisions, decisions. I like 15x8" and the 33x12.5x15 GY Duratracs. Now just to decide on a wheel...what say y'all? Weight is a concern. 14 JKUS, no lift and 3.21

Level 8 Tracker
Black Rock D-Window
MB 11

Hmmm.....

Thanks for any input!

Got them on. Don't know if I want to paint the ring yet and if I do what color. But I like the way they are now so may not paint.

Do you have to buy the rings separately or do they come with the wheel?

Spray can paint. One of the members mentioned a color that was very close to crush and used that. Took about 2 cans to do it. Probably about 5-6 coats. If you do any off-roading I would steer away from the mopar spray. I already took a chunk out of the ring so the re-paint will be cheaper. Mopar spray is $7/5oz. The stuff I got is $5/12oz.

@Discount Tire I order a set of these wheels and 3 showed up with brass inserts in rim for ring and 4th just has taped holes in rim. Is this a design change or they just a repair for messed up holes?

Hi, Cruzer72-

It's my understanding that the wheels were just taped. Can you send us a PM with photos of each? I'll send them to the manufacturer for clarification.
