American Racing Wheels
 
I just ordered my Rock Road lift, and now due to an unfortunate incident with a rock, I have an excuse to upgrade my wheels. I was looking at the american racing ATX ledge wheels, either the 17'' or 18''. Is looks like they will fit. Is anyone running these, thanks.

Check to make sure they are hub-centered. I've had ARW in the past that were centered on the wheel studs and they were crap; could never get them balanced.

^^ Don't let that scare you. Many people on here myself included run non-hub centric wheels with no issues.

I agree, no issues with the Boss 335B's on my wife's either.

The only way to properly balance Lug Centric is through their lug bolt pattern. This style wheel must be mounted to the computer balancer in the same manner as it is mounted on the vehicle...through the lug bolt pattern.

Lug centric mounting on the wheel balancer mimics the way the wheel is mounted to the vehicle.

If you are balancing Lug Centric wheels, you must use the Atlas Universal Adapter. The standard cone system will not work properly.
Hub Centric Vs. Lug Centric

Most discount tire shops don't know the difference.

Thanks for the tips, I just pulled the trigger on these wheels, should take about 2 wks to get here. I got the 17x8 0 offset. I also ordered the 2.5 in RRO lift, but not sure how long that will take to get here. My eventual plan is to put nitto terra grapplers on these things, I will update with pics as these things come in.

I've been wandering if anyone had gotten the Rocky lift yet. I'd like to but really want to hear how people are recalibrating the speedo.
