Bully Pro's and Cooper STT Pros

After waiting a year for this wheel to come into production through Discount Tire and Level 8, I am totally convinced the wait was worth it. Plus these new STT Pro tires look very promising. A bit of eye candy too...Must finish install on this RK lift before they fit. Discount Tire had to order all of it and had them ready to mount in less than four days. All I did was paint and install the rock rings.

Good Looking.

Great wheels too. Get back to DT and order a second set of rock protectors if you do any off road, you'll trash the painted one if you take them off road.

Really like that color of "blue" what is it called? What size tires did you get?

And just another FYI prepare to wash your wheels if you go mudding for the drive back home, the mud will unbalance the tires.

Those look great! Please post some pics when you get these mounted and I would be very interested in hearing how you like the ST Pro's (highway and trail).

Wanted these wheels specifically to run rocks, we have thoroughly trashed a set of wheels doing just that. These rings are made of a poly/Nylon stuff similar to cutting board material. I will no doubt have to remove them repaint and reinstall when they get gouged and so on. The blue color which we are using for accent color on wife's Rubi is Rustoleum # 7251 "cobalt blue metallic" from the Metallic series of their products.

These tires are 35"x 12.50" x 15" and actually stand 34.75 tall and weight 68Lbs.

Those look great!

I see the Bully Pro and STT Pro becoming a popular combination. Very nice looking together.

Most have seen this picture of the 17's on the STT Pro thread.

Really pleased with the looks, now to mount and take to Hot Springs ORP and put them through the ringer. That will give us about 1000 miles R/T highway and some very "testy" trails.Will certainly let you folks know what we think if your interested.

In the above picture you can see the wheel filled with mud.
One other thing you have to watch out for it the hub, either get a center cap or paint them, they rust and it takes away from the look of the mighty fine wheels.

Noted, do indeed plan to paint center hub that same metallic blue. We have been to Superlift AKA "HSORP" but have not ran to Barnwell yet. That has to happen within the next couple weeks. Wished we could find a good local Jeep club that made runs like you describe. The big one close to us is more like a social club with several clicks.... That's why my wife and I wheel solo most of the time. Our deer lease in Fredericksburg has lots of big granite and good bit of dry riverbed, it makes for some good wheeling in off season.

Edit: or a not so local jeep club we could join on trips and the occasional meet up. We are about 3.5 hrs from Shreveport and it would be worth it to us on some weekends if it were a solid group.

Looking good, Bonecollector! Thank you for your business

@Mentat Bashar - They are Bully Pro 5 (5-lug) wheels; the Bully Pro 6 is for 6-lug vehicle fitments.

I've thought about doing this exact setup on my new JKU. What lift did you go with? I have an RK 3.5 X-factor on order right now, and just trying to decide between 35s on 15s or 17s. Just came across these wheels and really like them, and it looks like there are no clearance issues. I ran 35s on 15s on my TJ, but had figured I'd just need to run 17s on our JK. Would love to see these on the Jeep - the Bullys are a 3.75 BS when 15's right? Very tempting...

Can't wait to see them on! Anyone else running 15" Bullys on their JK?

The tire's look really great in person, deep side biters and a tread that looks plenty aggressive. These wheels are not bead lock but are supposed to grip the bead better than a standard rim when aired down. Looking forward to getting them on some steep uphill rocky and shale at about 15-20 PSI to test them out (and have fun of course).

Yes sir, besides having all that rubber to lay down aired down, great ride quality aired up, they run about a hundred bucks less each tire....

Put wheel and tire on bathroom scale tonight 91Lbs, also surprised to find out the stock Rubicon wheel and tire (BFG MTs) weighs in at 72 LBs. Rubi rims are heavy!

Yes we did and spent yesterday out in Fredericksburg TX crawling over granite, river beds, cactus, and lots of cow poop. Part of the time we were pulling a trailer up over granite hills and loose trails with steep grades. Tires functioned flawlessly. We put about 600 Hwy miles on them and about 50-60 offroad which included some stuff you would rate a 3 on a scale of 1-5.

They sound about like a duratrac on highway with windows down. They ride slightly rougher than a duratrac but my comparison may not be fair on that point because I also just finished installing a RK X factor lift on this rig and that lift rides slightly rougher than our other JKU with a teraflex. But you can feel the road yet it is an extremely comfortable ride. The tracking on the highway was one finger. absolutely straight with no bump steer or wander. Excellent. Love the tires and I believe them to be true winners.

Got many compliments on the wheels and tires. And best of all my wife loves them, which is good because it is her rig.

They look great! That's right up the road from me (I'm in SA)

That's the exact setup I'm doing on our JKU, so I appreciate the feedback on the lift as well. Which shocks did you go with? Lift has been ordered for a while (enroute already - should be here Wed). Just gotta order wheels/tires. Any feedback on running the wheels w/no centercap? That's my only concern with the Bullys. Sounds like the coopers are the way to go

I simply painted the center of the wheel hub to prevent rust and whatnot. they look great.

This run up around Fredericksburg gave us a chance to test out the wheels and tires but also a chance to really finish tweeking the lift kit. Super pleased with the whole setup. Better than I expected and I was expecting allot.

I went with Rancho 9000 shocks for no other reason than we haul allot of trailers with us and it is nice to be able to crank them up when we do that. Had real good luck with the Ranchos on our other JKU so I figured why not.

@Bonecollector now that you have had your Bully Pros for a while, what is your opinion of them? Definitely on my list for new wheels.
