I'm starting to get into offroading (quite the change from the 1/4 mile strip that I'm used to). I've ordered some tow straps, rear receiver hitch, and tow hooks. While doing some simple offroading in my yard (live on 20 acres of woods, field, hills, and creek) I quickly realized how terrible the stock tires are when ANY mud.
But at the same time, this is my DD vehicle and I want to keep tires that will last 60k miles (I drive 65 miles/day for work, ~30 miles each way). Some decent offroading tires won't last very long with that commute.
So, I'm looking for another set of wheels for the sole purpose of having offroad tires when I need them. My main criteria is CHEAP! I don't really care what they look like. I simply want them to fit and not rub. With that criteria I found Crager Soft 8 wheels for $43/each on Summit.
My question is this, is 4" backspacing, -12mm offset, and 15" diameter going to fit my Jeep? The bolt pattern is 5x5? Does anyone know of cheaper wheels that will fit?
