Wink Hello

I`m a new member and learning how to navigate through this Forum. I understand I`m not supposed to hijack threads but this thread is designed for new members. Having some difficulty, for I can`t PM, ask questions on other threads or join a thread yet? Thanks for accepting us. It`s actually the Mrs. here, but hubby and I work together on projects. This Commander is our newest. I`m mostly the parts sourcer.

Welcome! I"m learning too... but it's coming along fairly quickly. Let's see some pics of your 07!

Wheels

I`m on this Jeep Commander Forum to get clear answers. We've been reading as much as we can. We're looking at installing the Rocky Road Outfitters 2.25" Lift with the shocks. Considering buying and installing the upper control arms too? And getting BFG`s KO2's 265/70R17. 17" being the smallest you can get. Not liking the Plasti Dipped ones that are currently on it. Peeling off. So, looking at different wheels. I see that the AEV JK Pintlers are ones that don't require wheel spacers. Annnnd that's what we want, NO SPACERS.

These are the Specs on the JK Pintlers:
TECH SPECS:
Manufacturing Process: Cast
Material: Aluminum
Coatings: Paint, Primer
Application: 2007-18 JK Wrangler
Size: 17" x 8.5"
Bolt Pattern: 5x5
Offset: +10mm
Approximate Backspacing: 5.2"

Now, I also read that the specs were not updated but that was on an old thread. So, are there any other wheels that have the same specs? Looking for all black. Nothing to blingy? And looking for confirmation if these Specs are updated?

I don't want to do any calculations. But if some have 17" wheels without spacers, what are they, for my scenario?

Thank-you.

Thank-you.

How do I add a picture? Asking for URL link when I press either the attachment or picture icons in the tool bar? Trying the drag thing. It's the same as in my profile picture.

Reflections

Haha...if you look at the picture closely, you can see my reflection, our house, and trees in behind and a whole bunch of things surrounding the Commander. Obviously not a show off picture. We'll need to do something about the driver seat.

JK Pintlers

I just found these for sale in my area. I don`t care for the 37x12.5R17 tires, but asked if the seller will sell the rims separately?

These AEV JK Pintlers are currently out of stock on the AEV website. Hopefully Kijiji Seller of the ones I shared a picture of, gets back to me? If he doesn't want to separate them, maybe I could flip the tires in the springtime?

The AEV Pintlers are sought after by a lot of guys, but, they are hard to come by.

Good luck, hope you get them.

Seller of these tires is willing to separate the rubber from the rims. He wants $1200 CAD. I think that's great but now looking and cheaper used stock rims for $350.
