I just googled them because I had no clue what you were talking about. I like the look, don't like the price. TeraFlex tends to be overpriced.

I took a closer look. There are two versions. The basic version and the premium version. Premium comes with a nylon ring cover to protect wheel from scratches. Wheels are $290 for basic and $315-390 for premium.

Vendors are listing them as 4.25 back spacing which is incorrect. They are 4.75 back spacing.

Also I'm not certain that they are compatible with TPMS sensors. They come with a preinstalled valve. Doesn't mention TPMS.

hmmmm....good point on the tpms? I got

Back Spacing: 4.25” off of there web page? I haven't looked at other vendors.
https://teraflex.com/news_items/ter...oad-wheel-and-air-deflator-valve-at-2018-sema


specs from teraflex
  • Diameter x Width: 17” x 8.5”
  • Bolt Pattern: 5x5” or 8x6.5”
  • Offset: 0”
  • Back Spacing: 4.25”
  • JL/JLU: hub centric
  • JK/JKU: lug centric
  • Finish: Metallic Black or Titanium Gray
I will have to ask them about tpms and post answer here.

8.5 wheel with 0" offset equals 4.75 back spacing. I am guessing Teraflex made a typo and everyone just posted it. In one video Dennis does day 4.75 back spacing.

They look cool though. Just have to find out the specifics.

I like the deflate valve, but I think they are ugly, my opinion.
so I am in a chat with teraflex now and they confirmed tpms will work just fine. they are going to update web site. I also asked about backspacing, they agree something doesnt seem right. and will double check that.

I messaged them for an ETA, all they said was “very soon.”
yes, they said end of month? but I have also got several answers on this with a wide range of timeframes. we will have to wait and see.
