Or you could have a set of Enkei RPF1s redrilled. I think the 17x8 is sub 17lbs each. Just a thought.
Another option I didn’t know, I will check it out. But 4lbs worth a redrill ? Likely not unless I really like the wheels. Thanks- options are good. 😊

The bronze color may go well with your 392, but since you're asking opinions. I think they are a little too blingy for a Jeep. They would go better on a lowered 2wd street pickup.

But then, I prefer less flashy wheels. I just ordered a set of Method 703 wheels in matte black for my Sting Gray colored 392. They also make them in bronze.
I'm also looking at the 703 bead grip in black. They are on my list, just not sure of the offset I need. I have a 2019 JLUR. I have a 2.5" JKS lift in the garage ready to mount as soon as I get my 35" tires.

Backspacing will stay the same regardless of wheel width but offset will be different even on wheels with the same backspacing, if the wheels have different widths. I don't even know if that made sense, but I tried.

In any case, I think a 0 offset on an 8.5" wide wheel is perfect for my Jeep. The tread part of the tire that actually touches the ground at highway pressure (32 psi) is completely covered by the XR fender flares. That means the outer 1/4" of tread and the sidewall bulge are past the edge of the XR flare. And there is enough offset that 37s don't rub on anything at full steering lock and full flex of the suspension. I have the stock extended XR front bump stops, and 1" extended XR rear bump stops.
