    Can't agree more about the ease of install. These took me about 30 mins each with 40" nittos versus 45-50 mins each with kmc machetes and coopers.

    I really like these a lot just can't wait to see them on the Jeep!

    Well that's interesting... I haven't seen Trail Ready BL's in person up close yet. I just assumed that any aluminum wheel that had a bolt going into it via a gorilla (that's me!) turning it would have a replaceable insert for said bolt.

    The only other wheel I was considering was the KMC Enduro which you can get in a 17x8, with 5.48" and blank so that you can have your own bolt pattern drilled. For the money, the Trail Ready was a better bet and I really like how they look.

    You can get them in an 8-lug too a 4.5" and 5.28" which is really close. While I really LOVE the way Hutchinson's look, they're tough to install and I'm not real fond of how they tend to leak air.

    You'd be surprised at how many aluminum bead lock wheels don't have inserts. Even with inserts, you need to be careful with torque as you can spin them as well. The bigger concern is galvanic corrosion and that is why it is important to use zinc plated bolts.

    I'm looking to start my install next weekend and had a quick question about TPMS sensors. I'd like to still be able to see the PSI in my tires, I like that feature, so I was wondering if you think I could make that work or give up on that dream? I know a guy locally is running his OEM sensors and valve stems but he is running the small rings and I ordered the larger rings. . Whats your thoughts? Thanks!

    Btw...this thread is going to really make the install easier so I appreciate your write up!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
