crapstick

I got this rim from Buckgnarly. He was extremely helpful and shipped 1 of 5 rims so I could test it on my Wife's Liberty. The backspacing and size was questionable if they clear the front calipers. Steel wheels in this size clear, but aluminum/cast is too thick.


Sucks monkey *****! They were 15x8 Jeep Rocky Mountain TJ Stock Alcoas. They would have looked awesome with the chrome on the jeep and rocking some All terrain 29s.


So now I have to send the rim back, and continue my search for something else. And most likely in a 16

i have a set sitting in the garage already


but the rim's backspacing already makes it stick out an inch, so that would be 2.25 or so stuck out, thats too much for my liking
