4 cm doesn't sound like a lot (about 1.5 inches), my concern is if there would be any wheel rub when turning all the way to the right/left. If I kept the same tire size, would there even be an issue?

Also consider the width of the wheel when factoring how much "poke" to expect. The JGC wheel wells are so large that I wouldn't expect any rubbing, but I can't say for certain. You can always buy (and return) a set of aftermarket wheel spacers to simulate the change in offset.

Re: The official Wheel thread

The spacers may give you a change in offset to see where our current wheels will push out, however if you are changing the width of your rim, you need to take that into account for knuckle and fender spacing.

Re: The official Wheel thread

I'm getting the feeling the wheels i'm looking at are not going to fit. I have the stock 17"x8" wheels (+50something offset) and the one's im considering are 17"x9" and have an offset of +10. If there's a spacer out there that will compensate for this (negative?) please let me know.

No such thing as a negative spacer.

What width/offset did you go with? these look great, however not sure how they'd fare with QL setups especially in the park setting. Currently my 32"s tuck under the fender in park.

Edit - I'm guessing these? http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/Se...n=PXA7089-8973
18x9 -6mm offset, wow. NO way these will work for QL folk. Looks great though!

Re: The official Wheel thread

That looks really good. I had those wheels on my Tundra and they did well.

Re: The official Wheel thread

I'm not gonna lie... I've been seriously contemplating a JKU and that makes me want a WK2. Nice job with the wheel choice. How much lift is on that?

Thanks. How long did you have them? Just curious how well they held up.. This my first set of matte black wheels.

Thanks. 2.5" all around. JKU will handle better offroad and more lift options but the WK2 will be more luxurious. Go with the GC!

Had them for about 4 years. They held up just fine. If they got really dirty, it sucked cleaning all the little holes around the rim. Also, the center cap clear plastic middle cover seemed to have warped/melted over time. Don't know why or how. But Pro Comp is a big company so I wouldn't worry at all about them.
