I need this answer as well!!!
After a couple thousand miles mine are still great. Painted them dark grey today.
Just mounted the new Wheel Vintiques with 235/85/16 on my BJ42 with the stock suspension, seems to fit great. I painted the wheels with Rustoleum.
Quick question, what should I use for a spacer to mount the new wheel to the spare tire carrier. I need some sort of a spacer because of the different backspace of the wheel. I can probably fab something up, but thought I would ask.
I had the same issue and planned on fabbing something up, but decided it was easier to spend $20 on eBay.
Thanks for the info. I'm going to check ebay. I think a 1" spacer would probably work for me, what size did you use.
This paint is the closest I have seen to the original grey.
I used 1" spacer and have 33x12.50 Pro Comp Mud Terrain tires. Tire no longer rubs on the carrier and carrier now swings out to 90 degrees.
Anyone mount the 12-670604 smoothies on a dark gray 60/62? Would like to see what color works.
My 15x7 Vintiques won't fit on the front. The welds are sort of tallish and they bang into the brake calipers. I need to add a spacer I guess.
Edit: they don't fit the back, either. Won't clear the GM metric calipers.
If someone is in need of one wheel spacer for your spare carrier I have one I will sell you. They come in sets of two so I have one on mine and no use for the other.
Trail gear 1.25" 6x5.5 bolt pattern . I would do $25, free shipping. Spacer has never been taken out of box.
I am looking to purchase a set of these wheels as well. You have a little time to test them out, any pros and cons? Anyone that has purchase a set, a review would be much appreciated.
These rims have been great on my BJ42. With the tires I have, 265/85/16, there is no rubbing and they look OEM.
Don't forget that you can in most cases put the balance weights on the inside, better for looks and not loosing the when out playing in the dirt.
Still love mine.
Here's another candidate I came across. Dexstar trailer wheel. 16x6, 6 on 5.5 bolt pattern.
I ordered one and the wheel I got had no "windows" in the center part and the center hub bore is too small. There are bumps stamped in for a hub cap that are wrong too. Add all that with the need to manufacture clips and install on a wheel that isn't intended for a passenger vehicle and I called it quits.
Someone may be able to make something work with it, so I thought I'd share for the data at least.
Looked like a good candidate, but stay away from trailer wheels, to bad it did not work out. The 16x7 wheel is the best for a 40-45 a few of my buddies bought the same wheel as I have in 16" for the FJ40 and love them and now can us a bigger tire than the 15" offered.
