If you are going with aggressive tiers / bumpers / etc then those black rhinos. They look like they mean business. Otherwise the pro comps

Thanks for the heads up. If you're up to it, can you post a photo of the wheels on the Jeep head on from the front so I can see how they look? If not, that's ok. Thanks for the info!
Same specs. I'm partial to Black Rhino myself. Depends what look you like. Sticks just a bit farther than what I would prefer but I love the look.

I voted pro comp. The black rhino wheels are cool but almost too wannabe military look...just an opinion everyone is entitled to one :)

All fake beadlocks.

If you want the look, why not get actual beadlocks?

Method 105 would be an example.

Beadlocks are not road legal where I live. I don't particularly care for the beadlock look actually, but it seems a lot of the offroad style wheels have simulted beadlocks on them.

You posted 3 fake beadlock "look" wheels.

So obviously you care about that look. Otherwise you wouldn't be comparing 3 fake beadlocks.

Legitimate beadlocks aren't street legal essentially anywhere in the country.

There are those that are posers, and those that are real.

Which do you choose?

Beadlock's = more weight and more maintenance. Not really necessary for your daily driver. You can still air down and do pretty damn well without beadlock's when you do go offroad. If this Jeep is a dedicated off road vehicle then perhaps the benefit's of the beadlock's outweigh the negatives. :cwl:

What is this maintenance that you speak of?

Once you have them bolted up you are good to go. Run a quick torque check at each oil change and everything is kosher.

And as far as weight - those black rhino's in OP's 1st post weigh 35lbs at 17x9.5

My 17x9" method 105's weigh exactly the same. And they are true beads.

Pretty sure a “quick” torque check of every single bolt on each wheel isn’t so quick and some may consider it a PITA. Nonetheless it’s still considered maintenance. Most beadlocks I’ve looked into are generally heavier. Fact is there is plenty more choice of a non beadlock. Personally I wasn’t a huge fan of the ones I was able to find. Someone should make a list of lightweight beadlocks.

Voted black rhino armory... I’m a little biased
