Then I saw your thread with it so I figured I'd see how it all went. When are you supposed to get your wheels? Where did you order them from?

The Mambas are based on the Moabs, but they are not exact copies by any means. They even have an inner lip that hides the weights next to the spokes, pretty neat.

The Moabs hit the brakes on the newer WK's but the Mamba's do not according to Quadratech and the place I bought mine. I got mine from a place in NC I found on E-Bay and got a great deal since I was so close to them. Way cheaper than QT was selling them.

I think the tracking says I will have them tomorrow or Tuesday. TPMS ($50 for a set of 4 OEM ones new in the box!!!) and tires are also due this week. If all goes well I'll have them on by the weekend.

I hope I got big enough tires, lol

They'll be big enough. You won't need a lift. Just look at Jeff's WK. Save your money because his WK looks good and yours will too.

You might end up having to do the pinch weld mod though. It's easy and cheap from what I hear.

He's running 265/70/17's though, course, he did have to to the pinch weld mod. I was just reading through his thread about his set-up.

I'm going to compare some specs on his tires vs the Dynapro's actual sizes and see, I may call them and change it up. My wheels and his should be right about the same offset wise.

Like 265 is "that" much of a difference. It will look good.

The only only only reason you would have to fold the pinch is because the offset that the Mamba's give.

Re: Black Mamba's vs. Black SRT-8's Questions-and Pic requests

Yeah, you're right, I'll stick with the 255/70s and be safe. I can always do a lift later and go with something even bigger when this becomes my fun Jeep and I retire the 02.

BTW, the specs on the Kelly's he has the the Dynapro's are exactly the same. I was thinking if the Dynapro's ran a little smaller, I may risk it, but there is no difference according to the manufacturer's specs on each tire.

Re: Black Mamba's vs. Black SRT-8's Questions-and Pic requests

I'm going to let this thread die since the topic it was originally about is dead. I'll post up pix of the wheels and tires and anything else I do in this thread. . .

http://www.jeepgarage.org/showthread...444#post434444

The wheels arrived today after I left for work, I'll post Pix ^^^ there tomorrow of them. Tires will be later in the week if I'm lucky, they are having to ship them from a further location so a slight delay is expected. Crossing my fingers that they will be here by Friday.
