Thank you, it matches perfect with the bronze 392 accents. Their website it says offset is -18 and backspacing is 4.54.

I got them at America’s Tire Co. Black Rhino has a bunch of designs in the same finish.
Good info! I am also getting aftermarket bronze wheels to match the 392 trim but was unsure if method, kmc, fuel or black rhino bronze was the best match! Looks like its Black Rhino.

Anyone know how much the OEM 392 wheels weigh?

Does the 392 have auxiliary battery? Since it doesn't have auto start stop, I would hope there is no aux battery.

I have one of my 392 wheels with me in my office today so that I can measure for a big brake kit. Figured I would offer to answer or check any questions for you guys today. Let me know if you need to know anything or have me check things! Here's a pic of the wheel with my new 37" Nitto's on them:

*Edit: I am adding a photo of the back side of the wheel with the wheel specs:

Hi. Just joining the thread and learning a lot already prior to my 392 arriving.... thanks all. I saw on the YouTube video that 37's on stock wheels rub the control arm, obviously not good. What offset is required to avoid that? (I'd like to have kept stock wheels (don't want to do spacers) but am now considering Black Rhino Carbines which I think are -18)

I am running black Rhino Oceanio 17 x 9.5 where the offset is -18 and backspacing is 4.54. I run 35’s on the 392 and there is plenty of room still.

Do you guys think I’m going to have any rubbing issues with the width of the 35x12.50 Nitto Trail Grappler MT’s, mounted on 17x9 wheels with a -12 offset (4.5” backspacing) and no lift? They are technically 315/70’s, but their dimensions are nearly identical to Nitto’s 35x12.50 of the same tire.

Just wondering what to expect.
TIA

If its going on a 392, no issues at all. The 392 comes stock with a 2" Mopar lift already. I think if you were running 37's you may have issues especially when it's flexed.

Ok, good to hear, thanks! And yes it’s for a 392. I’m mostly just second guessing the -12 offset I chose on the 17x9’s and wondering if they are going to stick out far enough to rub the outer fenders when flexed. I really appreciate the input.

I think you will be fine, I run 35's on 17x9.5's and have 18 offset and no issues what so ever on my 392.

I’m running 37x12.5 Ridge Grapplers on 17x9 Fuel Shok wheels with -12 offset/4.5” backspacing. No issues so far, at least on road.

@graytrucks Are those 37's on a 392 with factory life? If so that sounds really close to what I'd like to do with some -18 Black Rhinos. If you are at full lock is there plenty of clearance from the control arms?

Yes, factory suspension. Plenty of clearance from the control arms. I wanted 0 offset/5" backspace and still wonder if that might have worked, but was recommended by 2 shops to go -12. It's possible now that I would rub fenders or inner liners on full flex, but my off-roading is generally limited to sand/dunes, and I rarely am fully articulated. I may change the inner fender liners down the road and/or add a lift. For now it works just fine.
