Going with the AEV DS 2.5 inch lift and a set of Toyo Open Country ATII 35's . Only decision left is between the AEV Salta XR in Onyx or Borah (with or without protection ring). I am leaning a bit more towards the Borah just need thoughts, picture of how she sits now.

Here are the wheels I am looking at. My leaning is the Salta right now but I could go either way as I really like both. Thoughts?

I have always really liked the borahs.

i think it is personal preference. All things being equal the wheel with more open space is probably better for heat dissipation, weight, and for cleaning. So Borah probably wins there. But i don’t think it would be significant.

I like the Borahs but not without the ring. They just look like something ias missing without it.

Thank you, I am thinking the Borah and I am starting to feel that the ring is necessary. I will admit this will be a pavement princess as it is my daily and I do a lot of miles so would be the protection ring but style does win out when you are spending this much.

They look much better with the rings. I kinda like the Saverge II wheels too.

I also went with the borah. It's a good looking wheel imo.

You’ll definitely stand out with the color rings . . . . To the point you won’t be able to grab a bite at Cancun’s without the locals recognizing your ride in the parking lot!
