Guys with Rubicons. What lift are you running with these wheels if any? I'm seeing conflicting lift info being these have 5.72 backspace.

Thanks!
No lift but Im still running 285/70s until they wear out. Theres room for 315/70s though.

do you have a side and front picture, no flexing or articulation? I'm trying to decide IF i get these, could i still be happy with stock 33's asthetically.

They are onyx
Looks great. Did the JK version fit the rusty’s tire carrier without modification? I have the same tire carrier. If these are still available, please DM me your price at anvil.jl on Instagram. Thanks!

Finally, after months of figuring out all the details. Today was AEV Borah wheels, 35s and Teraflex 1.5 leveling kit. Putting rings on this weekend.

Looks good.

The only "negative" about the wheels is they're 10 pounds heavier than stock wheels even before the beadlock setup. I put negative in quotes because it's not really a huge issue given it's not a sports car, but if you also go and add large heavy tires the weight adds up from a rotational mass standpoint.

Can't believe a company that calls their lift kit the most complete didn't bother to have side specific rear springs. Even budget lift kits do for the most part.

But that is a relevant negative. They are heavy wheels and then add an E Rated 35" and that is lot of mass rotating and on the tailgate. That is main reason I went a different route. But do love the looks.

In my case the AEV/Nitto combination resulted in not being able to hold 8th gear on the freeway with stock gearing. That combo is now 'hardcore Jeep trails' only lol. Aka, I run them a few times a year on the harder stuff in Moab etc. Otherwise... camping/forest roads/highway I run stock wheels with spacers on KO2's (37x12.50R17). I can hold 8th gear just fine on this setup and the mileage went up from 11 to 18 (2.0 Turbo). I get between 18-22 depending on highway/city use right now. I care more about the range though.
