Couldn't be happier with these wheels. That they're steel makes them a little heavier, which I think is a good thing: You can feel that the Jeep is a lot more stable over small bumps, etc. You're not going to carve corners with these heavy steel wheels, but that's not the point of having a Jeep. As an off-road vehicle, steel is your friend.
The positive offset really made the look I wanted. So often when you put bigger wheels/tires on a Jeep, they stick out past the fender flares. If that's the look you want, great, but I didn't - I was going for a vintage military sort of vibe, and with 265/70 Wrangler AT-S tires, hit that perfectly. The tires sit right at the edge of the fender flares but don't stick out, and the rig has a huge military feel to it.
All in all I couldn't be happier.
One humorous side point: The center caps say "Made in USA" because the wheels are made here, but apparently the center caps are made in China because the caps themselves have stickers inside that say "Made in China."
