Thanks Beatrice. That's the wheel on my my wife's Jeep WookieeSorry to hijack...... but I am not sure where/if there is an ongoing discussion about your other jeep (orange wheels)
Couple of questions:
US Wheels Rat-Rod?
What backspacing etc?
Pictures of the US Wheel rat-rods show some chrome center-cap, I’m assuming those are either additional, or you just don’t use them? I am looking for new wheels for the JK, and want minimalistic.....
Paint...... did you order the ones they sell as “bare”?
I am assuming they aren’t prepped with ANYTHING, so you need to spray them down inside and out to prevent them from rusting?
Thanks. Both awesome jeeps.....
Did you powdercoat them inside and out, and do you “need” to powdercoat inside and out to prevent rust?Thanks Beatrice. That's the wheel on my my wife's Jeep Wookiee
The company is called US Wheel and like you said it's their Rat Rod design. They came completely unfinished. US Wheel's backspacing depends on width of the wheel, but none were as low as we needed. So we went with a 9" wide at 5" of BS, then added a 1.25" spacer.
We left the center cap off, there wasn't anything that fit the "feel" we wanted.
Hardly a day goes by that someone doesn't compliment her wheels. I know they're not for everyone but they're exactly what we wanted for her build. Coming up on 3 years with them and there's been no issues, just a few chips in the powder coat from the trails.
