Re: My new wheels

Nice, they remind me of Style 37 M-Parallel wheels from BMW. Not quite the same, but close enough to have a great look.

Re: My new wheels

Totally digging this design from back in my bmw days. Gives a leaner look to the jeep.

Re: My new wheels

Thanks for the replies yes your right I went through the BMW phase too.😄 I always liked there factory wheels. Especially the M's. Funny I still have some brand new M parts for an E90 coupe.

Re: My new wheels

Pics look fine. I like those tires too.


Are you using spacers or something or wider tires? Wheels look they have a wider stance.


P.S. Sun is generally bad for taking pics (unless it's the "golden hour" First or Last hour of sunlight).

Re: My new wheels

Looks great... how much time with the tires . What are your thoughts? My Hankooks can't be balanced and I'm looking for a new tire...

Re: My new wheels

Thanks everyone for the positive replies. Yes they are wider wheels 20X10 with a+40 offset. The tires are General UHP's 295/45/20 the fitment is spot on.

Re: My new wheels

Hi 2string haven't put many miles on them maybe 60 miles. But very happy so far can definitely tell the difference from stock tires a little more noisier but very negligible. Ride is a little stiffer but not much. Handling is very good on dry pavement haven't had them out in rain yet. Had them up to 90 MPH no shake or vibrations. So overall very pleased with the setup.

Re: My new wheels

Just seen your second post after sending my reply. Yes you can hear the expansion joints in the road. And they do require a little more steering wheel adjustment as they will follow the troughs in the road. But that is expected with this wide of a tire. Hope this helps you.
