KMC Technic, 17x9, +18. I've had a very tough time finding the right offset and weight combo. Loved a lot of rims I passed on due to high weight.

Out of curiosity, are those putting on aftermarket wheels planning on going off road? I've considered a second set of beauty rings to swap out to when not off roading but fully understand that why rims are going to take some damage when we are. Specifically marks from rocks on those beauty rings.
I had similar wheels on my FJ Cruiser (i.e. beauty rings). I always figured I'd just flip the rings over to the unscarred side. A second non-scarred set but work too. That was the benefit of the OEM FJ and the OEM Bronco Squatch wheels...the beauty rings help prevent you from scarring up a nice set of rims.

FYI - It looks like they have Fuel Rebel +20 offset in the 18" wheel (only +1 in the 17"). Definitely a possibility! Black, Bronze and Anthracite options.
Im thinking anthracite with black ing for my VB!

I want to switch out the stock BL wheels for steelies, black or bronze (do steelies come in bronze?). That's as far as I've gotten with that thought though.
i am switching mine. my dealer may want them. he is a good friend. if he does not, i will let you know. i plan to come to Chapel Hill to visit friends. we visit regularly. no bronco yet, but i can dream...
here are my replacements that are still in the box. KMC Dirty Harry.

I am thinking about these! Method 701's 17" with 0 offset in the Bahia Blue :love:
I like those. not really hip on the ones painted red. a nice vinyl stripe in the same color will set those off and look fantastic.

Love them. For me, i would love them without the fake beadlock bolts. They are gorgeous though.

That was the only thing i did not like about them, but they are not super noticeable. I can not wait to put them on my Rapid Red BD.

I don't think you can flip any ring inside out ...

For the FJ they were the same finish on both sides of the ring. You aren't flipping inside out...just one side versus the side facing the wheel. I don't know if the Squatch beauty rings are the same on both sides.

I’m down to three choices. Sasquatch with Basesquatch under a Carbonized Gray Bronco. Big Bend with that trim level Under a Cactus Gray Bronco (there’s a photo of this on the photos thread that gets me). black steelies with Black Diamond Under a carbonized gray Bronco. I need to get rims I like outa the box. I got 19 years driving around on Superduty wheels I don’t even care for (It’s probably a really good thing the base doesn’t have an available stand alone locker and tow package. I’d be stuck with silver steelies forever (bleh). I’ll go to 33’ tires though.

I was doing perfectly fine with my want for a set of Badlands take-offs for my OBX if they could be found. But, then along came Matt @BroncoTPA with his OBX, and the Satin Charcoal RTR's. What to do, what to do........:)

For some weird reason, I love the look of methods. They seem to favorites with performance focused people, or they have great marketing.
For those in the know, are they worth it? Do they hold the bead? Is there weight difference noticeable?
