I bought a 1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ some years ago and used it in the summer. It had previously lived as a daily driver and suffered many harsh salty winters. The original steel wheels were rusted to the point where they didn't maintain a good seal and needed to be aired up every few weeks. I was boxed in because I had already bought beefy Firestone tires that were mounted on those original rims. Once I accepted that I needed to put new rims on, I started looking for replacements that were both inexpensive and fit my already new tires. This set of Ultra 164's did the trick. They are super cool in black, they are very light compared to the factory wheels (aluminum versus steel) and they have a nice added benefit of sticking out a few inches compared to my factory wheels. On a Jeep YJ, that increased footprint means that the truck is less darty and goes down the highway planted, unlike before when the thing was a handful on factory wheels.
