Thanks brother. Took a while to find the ones that I liked and boom.

Although I did like the standard sahara wheels, these anniversary ones really stood out as something different.

More pics to come.

Re: New wheels/tires on the rig

Didn't even think about it until I saw them. But, since I am going to transfer the TPMS from my old shoes to these, I will have them turn em around before they mount.

Re: New wheels/tires on the rig

Looks really, really nice!! I wonder if these tires would fit on my '14 Summit? Shouldn't be any different, right? I also would love to hear about mpgs.

As for MPG, I took a trip to LI last night (approximately 35 miles each way) with traffic pretty much the whole way to and partially on the way back.

Started the trip with:

2071 miles on the odometer
239 miles DTE

Ended the trip with:
2141 miles on the odometer
170 miles DTE

Tires aired to 41 psi all around with no AC on and literally traffic the entire way there except for when I got off of the LIE. Then it was approximately 10 miles of back roads with a few traffic lights.

So, all in all, MPG seems to be within the normal range of the rig.

What say yall?

Oh, and I can't see a reason why these tires/wheels wouldn't fit your 2014

Looks real good man!

I've been wanting to powder coat the chrome wheels on my truck but I'm always weary of the durability of it. I don't have any experience with it.

I used the tpms sensors that were on the 2013 JK wheels on our 2011 and they are working flawlessly.

Thanks brother. Actually, it isn't full powder coat, it's plasti dip, so if you don't like it, you can just pull it of.

Personally, I love the look, so it's Gunna a stay that way.

As for the tpms, doing the swap this weekend

Re: New wheels/tires on the rig

You are lucky to find those wheels they aren't that common since they are 70th anniversary from the special editions 2011 JK. I was hunting down a set on ebay once and never saw another set posted again while I was looking.

I actually saw a few sets on there as recently as two weeks ago, but are going for more than double what I paid. So, I feel like a lucky young man.



P.S. the ones that I got were off of an 2013.

Here they are on an old posting.
