Don't have them but I am a fan of them.
I like your wheel choice. I am a fan of the AEV styled wheels. Are you staying with 16" or 17" wheels. What are the wheel width choices 9" or 10"

Is AEV only available in one offset or do they have another option ?

These questions all relate to the tire you will choose.

Wheels and Tires make an immediate transformation. But it's just ONE WAY to go. Not a bad way at all.

You can get a 33" tire like 285/70/17 (32.7") with no issues. You can go taller with minor modifications found on this site.

I am also running 17x9 . I am running a 285x70x17 . You CAN run this size with NO issue on stock suspension.

If you go larger than that you will have to make modifications (minor in some cases) !!!!!

Im a huge fan of the Savagre's in the argent finish. Im tired of seeing black wheels on Jeeps, just my opinion. Im currently running ga 3.5" AEV premium lift with 35" KM2s on stock rubicon rims with 1.5" spacers. Im happy with my current setup, but cant really settle on a set of rims I like better. If I were going to change them tomorrow, I would go with these or a set of Classic IIs. I would lean towards these more if they came with a street lock on them I think even though I dont know if I would get street locks.

This is a great looking rim on a JK and AEV is top notch in backing up thier products, no question. Customer service is second only to Tom Woods IMO. :beer:

I have them. It was love at first sight. That said, I've taken a few nicks out of them on the trail which made me a sad panda. I just rattle canned them with AEV's paint and they look new again. I'm running 35x12.5x17 BFG KM2s.

I don't have that wheel but I have been running AEV wheels for years. Good quality stuff from a top notch company.
