    Reason I would say no is because over 200 per wheel is pretty expensive, but its your money. I don't have any other reason to say no, if you like them and don't mind the price then go for it.

    Here’s a pic. Still need to add in the red center cap accents. But they look great IMO.

    $775 is better than the buy three get one free deal I got in on. I'd jump on it, but pass on the $60 lugs and substitute for the Gorilla XL's. Standard length lugs don't get much bite with these rims.

    What’s your suspension setup? Any rubbing?

    King coilovers, Camburg UCA's, King Shocks and OME HD springs out back. Stuffing a 285/70-17 with a -12 offset wheel requires some clearance. Lots of rubbing so ended up doing the CMC and now no issues.

    Vorsteiner makes excellent wheels for Porsche. A set will set you back $7K.

    This could be an off shore factory so I’d be a bit suspicious until better info on quality surfaces.

    Vorsteiner make wheels and kit for all manner of vehicle.

    Unsurprisingly, these wheels are of Taiwanese manufacture.
    Fit, finish, and even presentation all appear top be excellent. Mine are getting the off road treatment and I'll update if anything of significance reveals it'self.


    An example of their product.

    Taiwan manufactures many high end wheels and they do good work. Offshore = China = Crap. I have several sets of high end wheels where the “cores” are forged in Taiwan but machined in the US, Germany, and the UK.

    When you drop some big coin on wheels do some research on the entire manufacturing chain. You would be surprised where a lot of the forgings come from.....

    That is a bit of a misnomer.

    Yes...but Chinese forgings are low quality no matter what.

    In the Aerospace market, Taiwan is considered to be a high quality manufacturer and considered “an extension” of domestic sourcing. We have some exotic metals and machining performed there on some very state of the art military equipment. I’ve been to Taiwan, I’ve been to China. I would not trust anything made in China that is related to safety or longevity.

    But back to your OP....did you find out where these wheels are made? They look good.

    I too, have been to Mainland China. Six months in the early 90's I'd like to never repeat. Hong Kong was still of British lease bat the time, and a fascinating visit. Never set foot in Taiwan, however.

    Can't say as to the metal's origin, but with the wheels and boxes both printed / stamped Taiwan, I'd have to assume the final product happened there.

    Then that being said....good quality. I may get around to picking up a set once I need rubber. Just hit 8k on the stock Wranglers....considering the Falkins when the time comes.

    Thanks for the info!

    They’ll fit. Since they’re -12 offset they’ll stick out, so with no fender flares they’ll stick out slightly more.

    Any reason why you didn’t go 285/75?

    No. I'll run these for a bit. Maybe upgrade to 285/75 later. Was hoping the slightly smaller tire would fit without issue, but that wasn't the case.

    Thanks, good to know. Looks like I’ll just go straight to the 75s then.
