Rugged Ridge Alloys

Rugged Ridge makes a 17x9 wheel that is made for jeeps but with a 1.25" thick adapter (made by Rugged Ridge) i can put them on my truck. is a 1.25" adapter bad like wheel spacers are? is it worth it to get the wheels? what are yalls opinion's of the wheels? would it look good on my truck after a 4" superlift and 33x12.5 mud tires?

here is a picture of the wheels (they come in all black, black with polished lip, polished, and chrome)

I think they are bad *** and will look great with a mud tire.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't an adaptor act the same way a wheel spacer does? I've had no problems with my spacers so far, after 500 miles i re-loctite'd them and re torqued them down but they weren't very loose to begin with. Since then i've checked them twice and they haven't budged.

Yes...and from my quick googling I read as long as you check the torque on them often you should be fine. But wheeling them hard might be a different story.

nope they changed the jeeps bolt pattern to 5x5 in 2007. it was 5x4.5 before that. and yes the adapter would be like a spacer.. thats mainly the reason i asked the question. so as long as i make sure they dont get loose i should be fine?
