Anyone have these Walker Evans wheels?

Walker Evans Racing 504 "Legacy"

I googled but couldn't find any on a Jeep.

Walker Evans gear is a shadow of what it was 10-15 years ago but WE still makes a high quality beadlocks so I wouldn't stir aways from those rims if you like them.

Also, those rims looks suspiciously like the Method NV rims which are popular among the JK community. They also have rims with the right bolt pattern and backspacing for JKs in several sizes.

or buy these from Discount Tire and probably save some $ (unless the black ones in the first post are true beadlocks)



or some Level 8 Pro with the simulated rings


I have the Level 8 ZX wheels on my wifes jku and they look great on there.

hopefully that helps some

Funny thing, I thought the same thing and actually went to Discount's site to see if they were the same wheel. When it comes to pressure cast wheels, there aren't a huge amount of differences and most of them are made off shore. American Eagle is one of the few that has a wheel plant here in the states and makes a similar wheel. One of our members on here, AppSt59Dave, works for RimzOne and cut me a really good deal on a set of these.

These are the Method Race Wheels NV model and they do look similar. These are not beadlock wheels though.

Level 8 Pro wheels do not have simulated lock rings, it is a removable/replaceable bash guard for the rim.

I always have liked the look of these wheels.

They look like the same wheels, possibly made in the same factory and rebranded.

Anyone know if thats true?

The Walker Evans true beadlocks are unique and have been around for some time. They probably rebrand the Method NV rims to expand their product line since the NV's are pretty popular. The 504's are about $25 cheaper per copy in the 17x8.5 size.
