Notty what is the spec on those wheels far as offset and how wide are they? I really like the stance on your jeep.
I believe they are +12mm offset.

Do you happen to know if longer valve stems are necessary for installing these? My dealer has been wasting my time and ended up mounting my 35" KO2's on my stock rims without my permission because they couldn't figure out the valve stems. And now they want to charge me $23 per valve to replace them.
Wow! It sounds like they are being complete idiots or just trying to milk you for some extra money. These didn't require anything special such as longer valve stems or anything else to get mounted up.

Yea, not only that, but when I told them to use OEM valve stems, they said they didn't have any in stock. A dealership with an entire parts department, and no valve stems. It is unbelievable.

I hope I'm not rude for asking. But I was thinking about doing that same wheel on a silver 2 door Rubi. How much did it set you back to have the rings powder coated to match the red?

No problem at all. It was $65 per ring.

I dont know if i missed it but did you say you lifted this if so what lift or is that stock ?
I assume you already know the Rubicons have 1.5 longer springs than the sports.

Notty, quick question but is there a specific powder coat color you chose that matched so closely? I ask because i'm looking to do this and want as close of a match as possible.

Thanks,
Jeromy

I am thinking about selling my all black method Wheels. When I do I'm going to get the Mopar wheel that has the ring but not a real beadlock. I don't want the red to match the red on the tow hooks it's to read for me. I'm going to get it powder coating the color of the factor 55 flatlink that I have I was told it has candy in it so I cost a little more but I want the candy red I don't want that bright red the candy red kind of matches the outline on the red Rubicon decal and I like that its not too bright red like the tow hooks

Yes I know. I was talking about the Jeep being silver but matching the Red to the Rubicon red trim. Ended up buying a White Rubi off the lot with the upgraded rims. May do the beadlocks further down the road.
