    Question Wheels offset and backspacing on PR60/60

    Hi guys,

    I am contemplating getting the PR60/60 FF.
    I will need to change my wheels.
    I have an AEV JK350 package and I would like to keep the AEV theme going.
    AEV sells two different type of 8x6.5 wheels.
    Here are the specs:

    Katla Wheel
    Size: 17x10
    Bolt Pattern: 8x6.5
    Offset: -15.6mm
    Backspacing: 4.83"

    Salta HD Wheel
    Size: 17x8.5
    Bolt Pattern: 8x6.5
    Offset: +27mm
    Approximate Backspacing: 5.31”

    I currently have 37x12.50xR17 BFG's tires on 5x5 17x8.5 wheels.

    Would any of these wheels work with the PR60/60? How will the offset/backspace affect the tire stance?
    Also where can I find a 5x5 to 8x6.5 adapter for the rear tire carrier?

    You shouldn't have any issues running 37x12.50's on the wheels you're looking at. The PR60 will be wider than your factory axle and so you won't have any issues with back spacing either. As far as wheel adapters go, you should be able to find something on ebay that'll get the job done.
