AEV Pintler II Onyx

As some of you know, my new Salta's had a paint defect. AEV offered me a lot of options to make me happy, in the end I opted for the newly redesigned Pintler (II) in Onyx. This color will be replacing Argent as far as I know.

AEV just got these into their warehouse and I believe I was the first retail customer to receive a set. The Onyx matches the dark gray accents on the Black Bear Edition (center bumper appliques and interior bits)

My "only" beef if that the valve stem hole will not align to 12 o'clock based on the lug holes and the Jeep OEM carrier.

Nice looking wheel, I'll have to give this some consideration.

Did the increase the backspacing on their wheels? Big reason I stayed away. There was no sense in me spending that kind of money on wheels and needing spacers to get additional backspacing! Hopefully they have because they look great

Backspacing appears to have not changed.

Cool, I was wondering what happened to the Pintlers.
