I knew a guy who burned the clutches out of his limited slip differential that way. (His spare was much smaller in circumference). It makes me wonder how this is avoided with these collapsible "mini spares", you see people riding around on.

The compacts have the same overall diameter. The width doesn't matter.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Was loving the SRTs with the Velgens. So added a set to my wk2 ecodiesel.

I really like these wheels, which Velgens are they? Wondering about their fit and look on a Maximum Steel Overland.

Look up velgen wheels on Instagram. There is an srt in your color with the same wheel as mine. Looks good. It's te VMB5 in gunmetal. 22x10.5 w/ 285/40.

I was looking for $1575 since tires are new and they are recently powder coated. But I cam flexible. Plus you'd have to pay shipping since I'm in CA. I can see what the shipping runs per wheel. Wheel is 26lbs, I believe they are forged. And the tires are 29. So about 55-60 ship weight per wheel. Shoot me a message.

Maybe I'm just missing it, but I'm not seeing my color on a JGC on their Instagram page.
