Old-school-esq Slots; anyone running these

Hey everyone,

I ran Ansen slots on my 89 YJ and I've been looking around for a comparable wheel for my JKU.

American Racing AR969s appear to be the closest I can find.

I believe these come in a 17x8 size that should work for my current tires (35x10.50 R17).

It looks like they are 4.5" BS, so the will move my current tires out 1.25" farther than they are now.

Here is a screen shot of them from Jegs.



Feedback is appreciated...

Found these the other day, not hub-centric if that matters to you.

Vision Shift. 17x8 4.5 backspace. Sort of the old Halibrand/kidney bean look.

Thanks for the tip. I don't see them in 5x5, but not being hub-centric is a deal breaker for me.

I'm hoping to find someone who is running the Ansens and can chime in.

Think I found them on the Discount Tire site. Probably have a hard time finding a hub centric wheel like that.


I'm torn between these and the new retro white wagon wheels that Quadratek just released.
