Those look sweet man! First I've seen those on any Jeep. Well played sir.Got some new wheels on last Friday!
I wanted to test clearance before I started posting pictures because the wheels aren't a full 4.5" backspacing and I was worried that my 315/70-17s would rub, but I was able to flex it out and it didn't rub! Very close tolerances, but acceptable enough!
For the record, they are 17x8.5 ET0 Method Roost in bronze
Thanks! I actually think I might be the first Jeep with these on them, aside from maybe Method's build at SEMA... I got word that we were getting them at Tire Rack and I was first in line to get a set! I did this not only because they're sweet, but also because they aren't the standard 17x9 ET-12 and I was concerned that I wouldn't have enough clearance with 4.75" of backspacing. I am pretty excited that it all clears though!Those look sweet man! First I've seen those on any Jeep. Well played sir.
HOLLY Crap do I love those - What a risk pulling the trigger on Bronze but it looks great on anvil!!!! Sorry Turk but I might be the first Anvil to copy you!Thanks!

I think I see what you're saying here, right? That is the open center, but it's a white background so it looks solid. Rumor has it they may make a complete cap, so I wonder if they did that on purpose...why are the center caps cut out ? in the picture on the website the center cap looks like a complete piece
Build looks awesome man!
Thanks guys!Bronze wheels looks awesome!
I got mine at Tire Rack and they came with free lug nuts and the lug adapter required. I definitely need the adapter, I put a small chip in one wheel when I went to retorque my lugs after install because I thought I could do it without. Here are the specs on the lugs I got per the invoice:I love those wheels. In fact, I currently have a set on order.
Quick questions: do they require anything interesting in terms of the lug nuts? I see you have aftermarket, but would the stock ones work? Also, does a standard lug nut socket work, or do you need something like the thin walled AEV extenstion adapter to avoid damaging the wheel?
-I hated that Rancho rear bumper due to the pin that held in the tire carrier, so I ordered the ACE rear bumper. I got the light provisions, but didn't want to spend $400 on the rear lights they sell for it. So I bought two of the Hella Optilux 6-LED Mini Light Bars for 1/4 the price and had a friend with a welder come help me fab mounting brackets for them out of angle iron and weld them in. Unfortunately I didn't get pictures of the tabs for some reason, but I'll try to remember to take some when I take the bumper back off to put in the crossmember bolts I forgot to install due to no instructions coming with the bumper. It is currently held on to the frame with just the 4 frame rail bolts, so no towing for me until I fix that. The end result was beautiful though! The welding did melt out some of the powder coating on the other side of the bumper, but with a few more coats of bedliner spray, they won't be as noticeable. I watched the install video the next day to try to figure out what size bolt holds on the rear tire carrier, because I didn't have a socket that big and no wrench fits in there. The video said it was a 3/4" bolt, but it failed to mention that you'll need a 27mm socket to tighten it down so you can grease it. Overall, awesome product, but I wish it had written instructions with necessary wrench sizes.
