    Ok so in searching for wheels I have realized that a lot rubs the calipers so I called marsh racing wheels and am gonna just have some made. It will only take a couple of weeks but I need to know if anyone has gone this route and what specs were taken. I need to call back mon and tell them what I need. I am going the 15 by 8 route. He rattled off a lot of info and he had to run out for a bit so I told him I'd do some research. Any advice would b greatly appreciated. Hopefully someone knows specs and I has ordered before. Thanks in advance for viewing.

    Pretty sure a 15" wheel won't fit over your calipers, bro

    Well I want just a simple steel wheel like a rock crawler. I used pro comp with my jeep and want something like that. For some reason it seems hard to find wheels. So I talked to a friend of mine and he told me to call mrw and for 80 bucks a wheel they will build the non bead lock to my dimensions and that seems like a good route. I don't want to run spacers and have called around and all I'm hearing is that 5 lugs wheels suck to find unless u wanna run spacers which I really don't. So I figured y'all would have advice for me.
