wow, that was a quick change of vehicles. I seem to get new ones but forget to get rid of the old ones.

I think the build plan for the new one will be to save up for the next new one

I like it! Who makes the wheels? Are they 16s?

Thanks! They are US wheel Rat Rod in 17x9. 17 was the smallest I could go and still fit the big brake kit and upgraded YETI tie rod.
We ordered them raw and had them powder coated. Available in 15, 16, 17 & 20.

I also looked at the Wheel Vintiques: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/w...0504/overview/

Those are reasonably priced. What size and backspacing are they?

Crap, I guess Ineed to read better! So let me re-phrase that....what is the backspacing?

I guess I'm getting old. Looks like in a 17X9 all they ha e is 5". I would be interested in 17X8, so 4 1/2" is my choice. I really like the looks of those!

Thanks for the picture and links!

I was really hoping to get away with 5" BS, but it rubbed.
So in hind sight I should have gone with the 8". We ended up using a 1.25" spacer.

Just talked to the dealership.....the new Jeep is there. I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas! Don't know if I can wait until Friday. May have to make a special trip to pick it up!
