Nicest wk2 so far...love the look of the meaty tire. I assume you are on ql and aired all the way down? If so, any pics at your driving height?

Also, what are the stats, width and offset?

Re: The official Wheel thread

The pic is at entry/exit height. Which is the lowest setting. She doesn't rub at that height either. It's amazing, I am still baffled when I look at the wheel compared to the fender.

Offset: 38mm
Backspacing: 6.73"
22x9.5

I'm out of town till monday, so I will try to take some pics when I get back.

I really appreciate that you like it Thanks!

Thanks for the info. I love the look....very "thick" looking. If you have a chance to snap more pics, please take one from the rear to show the width.

Looking for something simple, really like these


But with a 25mm offset I think they'll poke out too much, throw junk all over the side of the jeep!

Probably going to go ahead and powdercoat the stock 18s as soon as I can go without wheels for a few days.

These look GREAT!!

Re: The official Wheel thread

Ended up powder coating a stock set of painted 18s. I don't think the cell phone pic does it justice, looks awesome. Really changed the vehicle. Very happy now. Something was just off with the light wheels/bottom half of the vehicle before, I planned on blacking out the wheels and adding rock rails. Now I'm not sure it needs the rails... A bit worried with the rails on I may want a wheel like I posted before to stick out just a touch more to balance them... I'll be removing the chrome side guard if I do put the rails up.

Was planning on black lugs and center caps before, now I think it looks pretty good.

Wasn't liking the fact I would have to block up the vehicle for a few days to get it done, ended up finding a month old set on ebay for 300# shipped... seemed a no brainer. Local guy with a powder coat sign outside his body shop did them for 30$ a piece. 90$ to mount and balance. Total 510$ and I've got an extra set of wheels out of it.

The 25mm offset really does not throw much trash down the side on mine. Especially if you go with a tire narrower than 285. The wheel is actually flush or just i side the fenders, the tire is what sticks out.
