Yes, I would snatch up some 4.25BS QHR wheels in a heartbeat. 5.2 will still cause some rub with certain lifts. 4.25 and 5.2 offering would meet most every need.

Thank you.

Hey look very close to staying tucked under the fenders, which is what I’m looking for. This might be close enough.

I’ve got 35k miles on my stock Goodyears, so I’m assuming I’ll be buying KO2s next summer. Trying to decide if I should get wheels this year to spread out the cost a bit.

Put me down for the hard rock wheels as well. I can't find an after market rim that looks better and I can't stand beadlock faux bolts. Its like an intake on a a sports car that is just cosmetic. Screams wannabe mall crawler or someone that puts a rubicon sticker on a sport.

I finally got some pictures while actually offroading. I was in Colorado and Utah offroading for 6 weeks. These wheels were the perfect match for the Metalcloak 2 1/2" Gamechanger suspension lift with the 35x12.5 Nitto Ridge Grappler tires. No fender or frame rubbing and on a big flex the tires tucked up nicely inside the fenders. Despite doing many serious trails I barely even touched a skid plate. The Jeep just inspired confidence.

Did you have any issues with the tires hitting the swaybar links? They told me the really wanted 4.25" BS, cause the tires could hit at full lock and articulated. I am running a 4.75" BS now, but could live with the 5.2" of these wheels. I have a 3.5 MC lift.

No rubbing on swaybar links or anywhere else.

That Jeep inspires me. Now if only someone had those wheels in stock...

Seriously though, are you getting new wheels? If so will they cost the same and do we get an excessive waiting discount .

When I hear anything on specific dates for preorders you guys will be the first to know. No idea on prices until I have that info.

Thanks!

That second photo looks like the first drop off on Fins n Things... Whoever took your photo has the same habit as my wife and tilts the camera in the direction of the Jeep (it's steeper than that).

That was exactly where I was and you are right it was much steeper than the photo shows.

I'm giggling because my photos are worse than yours...

This is one I took when I stopped to let her back in.

I hope these come back at some point. I wonder if the JL will also need offset wheels and keep the same bolt pattern.

I was thinking the same thing! I remember that exact spot from when I did that trail this spring in a rented Rubi...I felt like I was about to put it on it's front bumper!

Just an update: These WILL be available again. Hoping to physically have them back into stock in Q1 of next year, though I will post an official month when I have it. I will also post here when we can start taking pre-orders.

Thanks!

Is there any option for color matching? I'd love a set painted to match the 75th anniversary bronze trim.

Not 100% on finish yet, but most likely the usual: Machined, satin black, gunmetal. @NFaridi ... we will be offering it in the bronze! Stay tuned

Pricing should be relatively the same, around $159.99 retail. Obviously you all receive a discount from that cost.

I'm waiting for these. All gloss black (like the willys wheeler wheels) would be my choice if they're available. Otherwise, satin black will be a close second.
