I'm overwhelmed by all the wheel brands out there and am hoping for some help narrowing down to some of the more commonly sought after brands for great quality.


(They're going on 35" Ridge Grapplers - 17s)




Thanks!

Lets narrow it down. What's your budget?
Hutchinson are $$$bank!
Rock Stars are $$$shit!
but their price points are polar opposite.

My preferred/favorite wheel brand is Forgeline


I went with rugged ridge Jesse spade wheels on my JKU. I wasn’t about to spend forgeline $$$ on my Jeep.

Many of the Chinese made wheels are made in the same factory, or one of 3 factories over there.

As someone else stated, really depends on how much you do or don’t want to spend. I think I paid around 30% off msrp on my Jeep’s wheels.

Agree with screwlose. I picked up a set of their Moab style wheels in satin black, love them & offset is perfect
Its something a lot of people don't consider.
All the added things that you may need to get a rim to work with common tire sizes are built into the Quadratec options.
They also have a good selection of different styles to make just about anyone happy.

I like the Quadratec Rims, they have the correct back spacing so you shouldn't need wheel spacers and are pretty light.
Everything you need for a good rim.
Yep, Quadratec, Tactik and Mammoth are all house brands that have excellent specs, great price and hub centric fitment. That means they are made for our Jeeps, not just another wheel that sort of fits...

But if I was throwing money at it, the Forgestars are pretty cool.

I haven’t really set one yet. Maybe around $300-$350 per wheel. I could go higher if I really liked them.
$350 a wheel is pretty big money... I just paid $91 a wheel for my LJ Rubicon.

Do you want bead locks? Here's the majority of the premium wheels on the market.

The Forgestars look pretty cool. And not a bad price.
Another option is Method. They offer beadlocks and non-beadlocks.
But it is such a complex question. Beyond what is your budget there are questions like how do you use your Jeep and what do you want from the new wheels?
Do you want something strictly for looks, no worries about trail damage because it doesn't see trails? Or do you want something made to handle trails and off road use? Do you want beadlocks so you can air down further without risk?
If all you really want is less backspacing so you can clear larger tires better, the Quadratec options give you that. Near stock look with less backspacing.

I prefer Method wheels.


On Hutchinson Rock Monsters - I like that they are DOT approved, I dislike the locking studs that protrude outward into an area that is susceptible to rock damage.
