I was really looking forward to the JL wheels, but for me - i would rather the tire stick out a bit. So, i'm a bit disappointed and will probably consider the JK versions. Not taking away from your wheels - they look good:clap:, just my preference.

Reactor111, I really like the look of the 35's on a non-lifted Rubicon. Have you had a chance to flex the suspension wit this setup? Does it rub?

I would make sure AEV has them in stock first - placed an order last week for in stock satin JL Borahs, received an e-mail confirmation along with someone from sales following up. Today I followed up for tracking and apparently center caps aren't in - was told wheels would ship late week.

Love these wheels but at $400 a wheel you'd think someone would mention vs. shipping relatively soon is a 2 week wait to get them. Not pleased.

Yes, curious minds would like to know. Getting ready to pull the trigger.

As pissed as I am about the customer service today from AEV and past week - I ended up reordering them. Like these too much - going with satin black with the ring being painted gloss black. Going on a black JLUR.

I just had the new JL Borah in onyx installed today on KM3 37/12.50/17, Perfect fit imo. AEV will be installing their 2.5” lift for me next week, I will post pics when complete.
Man now I’m regretting my choice. I have satin black borahs on way, going on my black JLUR with rings being painted gloss black

Did you get center caps? My wheels are on the way and I was told they shipped without center caps.
