Need help finding 18x8 off road wheels
Hi all. I'm fairly new here, but long-time Jeep owner. I've had a 78 CJ, 89 YJ, 02 TJ, 98 XJ, and now my 2011 WK2 Limited with QDII. I'm a senior long-time member of another Cherokee site mostly devoted to XJ's.
I'm trying to figure out what to do on wheels. This will be an off road build, as apposed to a street build. There's tons of wheels out there, but I'm having a hard time finding some I like. Most I find are what I describe as "ghetto fabulous."
I'd like to find a 17 or 18 inch wheel that will clear my calipers, and stick to a 7.5 or 8 inch width. I want to use a set of Toyo Open Country ATII's in a 265 width so that I can still get the spare fully into the factory well and have the floor close all the way.
I have a set of 17 inch Moabs that I could run with 1.25" spacers, but I'm not sure I like the look. I really like the Pro Comp 7036 (Helldorado) wheels, but I don't know if 17' will fit without spacers, and the 18 inch version is at 9 inches wide; too wide for the 265's I plan on. Black Rhinos are out of my budget.
Anyone have any good suggestions in the $130 to $150 per wheel range? I plan on the RRO 2.5" lift if that helps anyone.
