21s Are On!

I finally got the new wheels mounted! It was quite the ordeal but Im glad its done. Those of you on my Instagram have already seen them but here they are. Rennen CRL55s, 21x10.5" and ET32 offset on all 5. Tires are Continental ExtremeContact DWS06(50k mile warranty) in 295/40/21. The color is gamblers gun grey with the casper clearcoat. They darken up nicely depending on the light they're in:



With the 3" lift



We just entered our monsoon season so I havent been able to detail the Jeep. These are just cell phone pics but as soon as there's a break in the weather Ill get some better ones



First impressions were great. I felt like I was sitting a bit higher and the steering feel is definitely lighter and more nimble. They weigh about 36lbs so the difference must be coming from the tires







I was really worried about them tucking but I am very happy with the final product. Its definitely more aggressive than stock but they dont stick out as far as I thought they would. Plus they ate up some of that fender gap.





I need to put more miles on the tires before I can compare them to the run flats. I expect them not to turn as great but the ride quality improved quite a bit. I still need an alignment and it looks like I need to start blacking out some chrome.

Thanks fellas!

I think it is a perfect fitment.
