    I am curious about these too. And what size bolts, 5/16, 3/8, 6mm???

    Also, how flush are the outer part of the spokes to the edge of the wheel. In one of the brochure pics, the spokes almost seem to be flush. Any pics looking at the wheel from the side?

    I do like the looks of them.

    Do the speed bumps at the mall count as crawlin?

    N.S.D.Q.! and Army ........... ummm, we don't have a slogan anymore.

    I believe the ring guards (the plastic rings) come with the wheels. The real beadlock metal rings are a separate purchase though. I will say, that when I get them, I may ask eddie to make vynil JL logo (the ones they made for the fender) stickers so I can put them over the centercap. Would definitely purchase a set if they were willing to make em.

    Giving beadlocks a serious look for the new JL I will be getting this fall/winter. I don't wheel but use the Jeep hard during hunting season. We call it hunting that time of the year rather then wheeling.

    A few that I have found scouring online include:

    -DV8, 882 in both 17" and 20", Offset=0, Bore=78.1, Weight=42 and 50 lbs.
    -Mopar, 17", Offset=+12, Bore=78.1 (?), Weight=36 lbs
    -AEV Borah,17", Offset=-4, Bore=71.5, Weight=40 lbs.
    Method 105 17", Offset=-38, Bore=71.5, Weight=39 lbs
    ProComp Vapor Pro 2 85 17", Offset=-6, Bore=83, Weight= 40lbs
    Ultra 103 Xtreme 17", Offset=-14 or +25, Bore=78, Weight= 33 lbs
    Dirty Life 9302 RR 17", Offset=-14, Bore=71.5, Weight= 34 lbs,.

    With the wider axles of the JLUR and from what I read a small negative offset up to a small + offset are find.
    Are JL Hubs designed for Hubcentric wheels? Does it matter

    Any feedback good or bad on any of these?

    I want to stay with TPMS compatible wheels, also I like the machine look or even polished (no chrome).

    DV8 are a great value while the Vapor Pro 2 are my favorite looking wheel. and Borah.

    The Method is a nice option but I think to much offset causing the wheel to still to far out.

    Will stop at 35" tires. No 37s. Much of my driving is on the interstate heading to the hunting grounds and it will be a daily driver.

    Thanks again.

    I went with the AEV Borah wheels for my JLUR and got the Ring protection so I can change up the look whenever I wanted. I also have the option to convert my wheels into beadlock if I ever wanted too.

    You can check it out installed on my JLUR as I have posted a thread so it gives you an idea what they look like.

    I have no issues with the TPMS as they work fine..

    Only in a Jeep will your truly feel the freedom in any trail..

    How do you change a standard wheel into a beadlock wheel with just a ring?

    Itís the same thing Ford and AEV did, you have to in mount it different and buy a ring for beadlock. Otherwise the tires mount normal and you get an extra thick bullshit ring.
