Pro Comp 7069 vs Mickey Thompson Classic III




Hi guys/gals.

I think I finally narrowed down my choices as to what wheels I wanna get for my Jeep. I think I'll stick with 17" wheels as well.

Does anybody have any pros/cons for one over the other?

The Pro Comp's have 4.75 backspacing and -6 offset.

The MT's have 4.5 backspacing and -12 offset.

What do those numbers actually mean/represent?

Does one wheel sit out wider from the fenders than the other?

I like the concave/deep dish look on these. But when looking at images, it seems that some of the Pro Comp's look deeper dished (probably not even a word) than other. Take for example, the pic above and the 7069's on the Jeep below. The pic above looks 'deeper'.

Thanks for any thoughts/advice!

I just purchased the MT's, and I was really impressed. Couldn't tell you about the ProComps, but I did get stuck with their lug nuts, and all I can say is if the lug nuts are any indicator of ProComps quality, get the MT's. The lug nuts didn't start rusting till the end of the second day I had them. I'm not sure, but I would think that less backspace on the same width rim would have a deeper dish in the front. That's the only way it would make sense to me.

Depends on the size and BS. Some of the ProComp 7069 do have a 3.75" BS that would look deeper. These are the 17x9 with 4.75" BS.

I've always run the 7069's only because I know I can get one any day of the week. Not sure MT would be the same.

Thanks guys.

And as far as Pro Comps having 3.75 BS, I think that's only the 15" wheels.

Can anybody else explain what the offset and backspacing really means? 4.5 vs 4.75. And backspacing...-6 vs -12?

If I was run 315/70/17 Duratracs with no lift (for now...may get a leveling kit) and flat fenders, do I need to get, let's say, a 4.5 over 4.75? Or will the offset of the wheel matter?

I have the 16 inch 7069 with 4 inch backspace, looks/functions great. Best part, they only weigh 20 pounds, that's lighter than stock.
