View Full Version : Lil BLING for JET Li - KMC XD231 RG RACE Beadlock Wheels

Along with the new shoes that we just got for JET Li, our 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited, Brown Santa was also nice enough to drop off a brand new set of KMC XD231 RG RACE Beadlock Wheels in a machined finish. For those of you who are familiar with KMC wheels, these are the all new Robby Gordon wheels and they come with a beadlock ring similar to Machetes. While they are available in satin black, Cindy and I are big fans of a machined finish and think they'll look great on a bright white JL. I should note that they're only available in a 4.75" back spacing and this may be a problem for us being that we will be mounting them onto very large 37x13.50R17 Cooper Discoverer STT Pros. 12.50 wide tires would probably be a better fit but we love these new wheels so much, we'll be sure to make them work, one way or another. Anyway, below are just a handful of pics that we took soon after they were delivered. More pics are coming soon :yup:

Those look fantastic. We were considering the KMC Machete's, but we were getting conflicting information about getting beadlocks. We will definitely be doing more highway and street driving than trails, so should we skip on beadlocks and go with streetlocks?

I showed these wheel photos to my wife of 35 years and who has never once in all that time questioned me about a Jeep purchase and she said "Oh - I don't think you should be looking at those" ;-)
She immediately recognized the "I want these" look on my face. Those are pretty special wheels. Can't wait to see them on Jet Li.

It's such a bummer. I was totally ready for spring to be here. Sucks that winter just seems to be starting :grayno:

Based on what I'm hearing from you, beadlocks would be totally unnecessary. Hell, I used to wheel without them for years.

They look raw but compared to my Trail Readys, KMC and ATX wheels seem to have a nicer finish and resist stains better. I don't know for sure but it is possible they have some kind of clear coat on them.

Iím planning to buy these wheels in satin black for 37x12.5 STTs on a sting gray. Are you still happy with the wheels and the amount of backspacing? It looks to be a perfect fit but wondering if youíd do anything different on the wheels now that a few months have gone by.
