37" Ko2s on KMC Machete Beadlock wheels - it's about $5k after taxes! :LOL:

After thinking about it, I think I'd burn up the $5k on gas and travel expenses for trips in my Jeep.

I've bought a lot of things, some of them quite expensive, in my life. None of them live up to a great experience, and great experiences don't always need the most expensive toy (although a stock Rubicon is hardly a downstream vehicle). Some of my best "4 wheeling" experiences in my memory were in vehicles like baja bugs, Pintos and other silly vehicles.

The most I spent on my 2020 Sport S is $3,500 for a set of Rubicon Dana M210/M220 with electronic lockers (<7,000 miles on them).

Just before that, I spent $650 on a used set of steel Pro Comp wheels with 35x12.5x17 Nitto Grappler tires (4 tires and 5wheels, spent $150 on a fifth tire).

I don't mind spending money on axles, since it vastly increases capability, and I have a month long tour through Moab>Rubicon planned for June.

I have a problem spending a lot on wheels, especially since they *will* get banged up pretty good. :)
