Re: Rhino wheels?

never heard of that brand, but with a machined lip you may have a problem with pitting plus that deep lip makes the rims look smaller that a rim with no lip of the same size diameter. so unless you want the offroad look i'd go with a more flat faced wheel IMO. those would look nice on a beefy tire tho for sure

Re: Rhino wheels?

I agree on the lip issues, but I love the look of deep lips. The setup would be only used for summer I'm thinking of some nitto A/t grapplers 285/50/20

Re: Rhino wheels?

that would look nice. i love nitto's too. im guess you can get a good deal on the rims since they're not a very popular brand..

Re: Rhino wheels?

+1, the quality and look of the Black Rhinos are strong. It looks like the offset of max +30 may put the wheels a bit outboard on the WK2, stock is +56.4, though they then may be able to handle the wider 9" footprint.

Re: Rhino wheels?

Intresting, they are a brand of TSW. I had a good conversation with the folks over at discount tire, the set with 285/50/20 rubber would have more room on the inside and stick out inside of the top of the flare:



I just need to make up my mind on the rubber; )
