Can anyone identify these wheels??

Hey guys I'm buying this YJ in a day or two and I'm curious as to makes these wheels, can't seem to figure it out. Also, is it just me or does it look like the wheels have stock backspacing? Doesn't look like they stick out past the flares at all. Thanks.

Yep... With boomerang shackles short side up in the front prevents shackle inversion and short side down in the rear allows crossmember and bumper clearance.

Those are Mickey Thompson rims I believe. 8 inches wide but with a very small back space. They defiantly aren't stock backs pacing. And x3 on the shackles being upside down

MB Chaos Wheels... They are pretty nice. Probably just a 15x8" wheel. Not sure they make them in 10's.
