Love both your builds. I'm planning on picking up a set of Venomrex 501s. Do you mind me asking where you guys ordered them from? And how big are your tires? I'm on stock sport suspension now and trying to figure out if I'll be okay with getting BFG KO2s on my JLU.
Thanks.

I ordered mine directly from Venomrex. My tires are 35x12.5x17.

I had the 33s KO2’s standard with the rubicon, I liked their performance and they are also 3 peak for winter conditions.

I’d say for a sport, I wouldn’t go over 33s without a lift, even with 33s you might rub with the sport, depends what you are doing with it.

Thanks! I also ordered mine directly from Venomrex. They had a nice Black Friday sale. I am running 35x12.5x17. You should be ok to run a 33 but you won’t have much fender clearance if you stay stock. Ok daily driving but would likely rub fenders if off roading. If you want to run a 35” I’d consider a 2-2.5” lift. My Mopar 2” lift gave me exactly 2.5” on all 4 corners. Most lifts level the Jeep so you get more in the front to level them out.

Thanks for the replies fellas. Last question, did you guys order the black center caps/red overlays thru their site as well? They have the caps in stock but no red overlays available at the moment.

I did order the black centre caps, but ended up liking the ones that came with the the wheels, so I returned the black ones.

the red inserts are separate as well, they are just thick stickers that come in multiple colours.

FYI, because of the offset, you won’t be able to use the rear camera housing.

I'm assuming the stock center caps are the same color as the wheels? Would you happen to have a picture of them? I tried zooming in on your pictures but I can't really tell a difference between the two (which I guess is a good thing.)

Thanks for the heads up regarding the rear camera housing!

Yup, they are the same color. For some reason they look slightly darker then the rim itself, but the black ones are black, so just depends what you want.

Unfortunately I don’t have a close up.

Your explanation was perfect, thank you for saving me $128+ in buying unnecessary center caps! Worst case scenario, if I don't like the shade of darkness I can just plastidip them black.

No worries.

I’ve heard the plastidip is a magnet for debris, so you’ll get dust and dirt sticking to it.

Also, the center caps have these small decorative silver pieces, might be hard to plati dip.

if you want to know what they would look like in black, just cover the grey with electric tap and take a picture .. or take a picture and use MS paint to edit it.
