Over the past year we have been working with Level 8 Wheels to develop a new functional off-road series of wheels that will be called Level 8 Pro.

More information will follow but here's a few teaser pics.

The cat slipped is out of the bag for one of the two wheels so.... here's some more pics of the Level 8 Bully Pro.

A couple things that you may notice...

  • The Level 8 Pro series wheels will come with new and improved black bolt on scratch guards with zinc plated hardware -(shown custom painted below)
  • Each wheel has, not one but, TWO valve stem holes- (convenience for airing up and down)
  • Exclusive Premium Level 8 Pro Black finish
  • No center caps
  • Installation kit will include premium knurled zinc plated lugs, red hub rings (when applicable) and a Level 8 Pro speed deflator

Very nice looking wheels. Very nice! As an ex OBA manufacturer, I can appreciate the dual valve stems. I'm really curious to see what your Pro Speed Deflator looks and works like. Are they compatible with other wheels too? You know, for those not looking to replace their wheels right away. Whether they know it or not, they all need a way to air down and air back up quickly. :) Thanks Discount Tire!

Right on bkilby, Thanks for the comments. I was hoping someone would chime in here. These wheels look even better in person.

The Level 8 Pro Speed deflator will be compatible with any wheel, any valve stem for that matter.

BTW, I cant say I remember seeing any Commanders out at Easter Jeep Safari, Are you headed there next week?

Sorry but no. I can't make it this year. Really sucks too. I have a few buddies in Jeep engineering that I'd love to hang out with but it's just really bad timing this year. Otherwise, I'd be heading out Saturday! Argh!

They aren't out yet. We posted pictures here to help introduce them. These won't hit retailers for 2-3 months. Once we have some links we'll post them up.

What kind off offset do they have ? Will they fit the xk nice or do they have the jk offset ? Are they beadlocks ?
The Level 8 PRO wheels have a bolt on scratch guard, they are not a beadlock. In the 17x9 size, the PRO wheels will only come with a 4.5" backspace for lifted applications.

Spacers will not be required.

Compared to where the factory wheels sit, the 17x9 ET-12 Level 8 Bully Pro and Tracker PRO will sit nearly 3" further out towards the fender.

All Level 8 Pro Series wheel sales have been put on hold. There is an issue with the hub bore (scratched surface) and Level 8 has placed an urgent order with the manufacturer for stock replenishment. At this point though, there is no ETA on the new stock.

A far as fitment goes, which size are you looking at?

the 17x8.5 but the guy at the counter said the only available size was a 17x9 and that would need a huge lift kit to make these wheels work. Just read the previous post and noticed they are not available in a 17x8.5 I was thinking the 16x8.5 sorry.
