Hutchinson Rock Monsters

Thanks to Marcus at River City Offroad, I finally got my hands on a set of argent Rock Monsters from Hutchinson. Using Nitto Trail Grapplers (35x12.50x17). They went together pretty easy, and I think they look great. Will try them out at Katemcy Rocks next weekend.

Yes. He mounted them up for me. Are you going to make Katemcy Rock's last open weekend next weekend?

Not sure the actual weight. The shipping slip says 51 lbs. Not sure if that's correct, but I do know they are much heavier than the stock wheels.

I haven't noticed a whole lot of power loss with my 3.6L.

Did you balance them or not and how is the ride on the road?

Thank you as well sir!

I love the wheels! I don't believe there is a classier wheel on the market for our rigs!

Thank you!

Marcus

I took them to Discount to get balanced. Surprisingly they did not take that much weight at all to balance out.

Ride on the road is the same as before I thought but I only drive it when I'm in town.

They should weigh in right at 48lbs each. I ran those wheels before I went to 60's and liked them a lot. I am running the 8 lug models now. I never had a bolt get messed up with the exposed treads. You will hate taking them apart. I made a special bracket and use an engine hoist to get the wheel off the tire.

They ride great. My round trip to work is 100 miles/day. No vibration at all at 70mph. I yike 'em!

Curious, do these have to be tinkered with much? I mean on a daily driver how often do you mess with these or secure them.

Yeah the choice has always been the walker Evans or these. I know how much the WE's are, I'm too afraid to call on the hutch's.

No more than any other bead lock. Check the bolts every few thousand miles and visibly inspect them when you (gasp!) wash the Jeep. Should be just fine for daily driver use forever.

They aren't as bad as you'd think. They go for around $399 each.

I've been thinking on these as well but was unsure about the 4.5" backspacing? Are you guys running spacers as well? Any rub while off road?

I wish they offered a 4.0 or 4.25 BS...

You would be fine up to 35" tires but anything bigger you will need spacers or a wider axle up front.
