These are awesome wheels for $221!
Wow, that's a VERY good price.

I couldn't find the black ones on justforjeep so I compared the price of the grey ones:

justforjeep: $284
moparonlineparts: $217

That's quite a difference..

Re: Zybane's "Arctic" Diesel Build

I can take some pics the next time I have her out, with quadra-lift highest. My largest worry with the tires was the bolt/suspension knuckle that sticks out just inboard of the top of the tire. It clears by about half an inch so good to go!

18" Wheels with 33" tires allows a nice side-wall for off-roading, allowing me to air down etc and also gave me over 1" extra ground clearance. Stock summit tires are 30.5".

This wheel and tire combo also drives really nice on the road and are quieter than I thought they would be. Steering feels just a little more loose, but nothing terrible.

Overjoyed with the swap out, and to find the tire will fit in the stock storage compartment (without air) makes everything that much easier.
Now that everyone has seen your wheels Jeep USA is going to run out of those quick, fast and in a hurry; did I say back ordered?

Great look, keep up the good work. Oh and the price can't be beat.

I am surprised I don't see more of these on peoples vehicles as they are pictured in the Jeep MOPAR handouts you get at the dealership. Really nice wheels for the money.

I went crazy with all that stuff, have everything from illuminated door sills to heated washer fluid mods to install LOL.

Re: Zybane's "Arctic" Diesel Build

Left the jeep out in the sun to help the window tint cure.

Measured around the vehicle in Off Road 2 setting, ground clearance around the chassis is an impressive 12.5 to 14 inches.








An easy way to tell ground clearance is take the major lines of the running boards and line them up with the center of the wheels. With a 33" tire, the center caps should be just over 16 inches high. I am removing those running boards of course and putting on rock rails. Good news on that front Amazon just sent me a email stating they should be shipping early December. I hear those are a bitch install!

Z, those wheels are really sharp!

Re: Zybane's "Arctic" Diesel Build

Thanks. What do you guys think of turning the wheel flares black? Thinking about doing a plasti-dip test. If I don't like it I can just peel it off.

Depends. If you are planning to put on the bushwhacker flares, then yes. Otherwise, I'd just leave them the way they are.

Re: Zybane's "Arctic" Diesel Build

Well, since you asked...

I think if I was going to dip the flares black with your black RRs, I'd want to have that "theme" carry through the front and rear (i.e., also dip the lower facias). But I can't tell from your pics what the transition between them is in the rear. Looks like at the front flows naturally, but the rear looks like the flare ends at about the 2:00 position, and the finish of it is part of the rear fender wrap around. There doesn't look like a really good way to complete the flow line there - hope that makes sense.

The best example of what I'm trying to say is how the grey flows all the way around my ZJ - the bumpers and flares are the same color (RRs haven't been re-sprayed in years, and they're not the same color).

On the other hand, if the Bushwhackers go all the way around the rear fender openings, then that might be a good way to go. Just not a fan of them, myself.

I would be happy if I could just make up my mind which color I want and overland or summit. Max steel, Granite, Black, Forest Black, White, Deep Auburn? Why no Forest Black on the Summit and no Deep Auburn on the Overland? This has really been driving me crazy. I'm so tired of looking and driving Jeeps; I'm starting to think I work for the company. Not!!!! Maybe they'll hire me to just test drive there vehicle all around the country. Nope that wont work, don't work, wont work. LOL
