Assuming you have 5 on 5 bolt pattern, you're not going to find it unless you go to a beadlock wheel. You can get down to about 4.25" in a steel wheel for a 5 on 5 bolt pattern, but I haven't seen any better than that.

I must be dumb because I can't figure out the website to know what wheel has what backspace. The price for a 17" is the same as method beadlocks and the methods are aluminum.

I didn't notice that...but you're right, there is a lack of info on there. Consider the pricing when you're getting four wheels for the price of three. Their web pricing is inflated compared to what the wheels actually sell for.

A standard steel wheel is going to run you about $100. How much are the weld on beadlock kits you're considering?

Right around $60 per wheel

Cragar does do runs as demand dictates. My 17" soft 8's are 3.5" bs. Cost about 30% more than the 4.5" tho.

Would you mind posting an actual pic of these wheels? I'm also looking for a deep dish or low backspace 17" wheel for my JK, but I have very little interest in a beadlock setup... I've got 4.75" backspace wheels and 1.25" spacers, but I just hate the big flat look to the wheel face. I miss my old school 15x10's
