Best Rims for Jeep Wrangler

Not a lot of SUVs stay true to their tradition, but the Jeep Wrangler stands out in that regard. It’s easily the most ‘Jeep’ of the modern Jeeps, and that goes beyond its classic design and aesthetic appeal. Like a true Jeep, it can go anywhere. And as Jeep enthusiasts have successfully shown in the past few decades, the Wrangler can reach new heights in off-roading if modified well. Any serious modification is incomplete without looking at the wheels. If you’re in the market for a new set of wheels for the Jeep Wrangler, allow Mechanic Guides to help you choose the Best Rims for Jeep Wrangler.

The Easy Choice: Helo HE878 – the best rims for Jeep Wrangler

Helo HE878 Wheel with Satin Black Finish (17x9'/5x5')
359 Reviews
Helo HE878 Wheel with Satin Black Finish (17x9"/5x5")
  • Available in 16" 17” 18” and 20” diameters with various widths and off-sets
  • Satin black painted finish and center cap
  • Lifetime structural and a one-year finish warranty against peeling or lifting of finish
  • Lug nuts are not included with wheel purchase
  • Pictures are meant to show the style of the wheel not necessarily the bolt pattern – please refer to product specifications below for exact product information

Available in sizes ranging from 16 – 20 inches, various widths and off-sets, and also multiple PCD configurations, the Helo wheel is a stylish yet cost-effective product. The one we’re talking about here is a 17-inch wheel (17 inch x 9 inch, to be exact), has a 5-holes configuration, and is finished in satin black. You can, of course, choose from a variety of finishes as well. The wheel weighs a little less than 30 pounds, is backed by a lifetime warranty on the structure and one-year warranty on the finish.

Satin black finish

In terms of appearance, the Helo HE878 is stylish but at the same time, it’s not one that will shout for attention. If you’re after something more flashy, the other finishes and designs (like gloss black and chrome) might be more your style. The satin black example here adds to the understated but assertive look of the Jeep Wrangler.

What do we think of it?

There are a few things to keep in mind. First, check with the seller about compatibility because that’s essential. Also, the wheel doesn’t come with lug nuts, so that’s a small additional expense you’d need to bear.

Pros

Pros
  • Not very expensive
  • Stylish

Simple-but-effective: Pro Comp Series 69 Wheel

Pro Comp Alloys Series 69 Wheel with Flat Black Finish (15x8'/5x114.3mm)
177 Reviews
Pro Comp Alloys Series 69 Wheel with Flat Black Finish (15x8"/5x114.3mm)
  • 83.01 inches
  • Size 15x8
  • Bolt Pattern 5x4.5 inch
  • Back Space 3.75 inch

The Jeep Wrangler has an almost timeless classic design, regardless of which model you choose. And that can be complemented by the use of a similarly evergreen wheel. That, in this case, is the Pro Comp Series 69 wheel. Like most other choices, this one is available in a variety of sizes, PCD configurations, and sizes (15 inches to 20 inches). So if you’re looking at replacing the stock wheels on one of the early Wrangler models without upsizing, this can make for a good choice.

Unmatched style and strength

The product we’ve chosen to feature is the 15-inch x 8-inch one, finished in flat black (which adds to its handsome appeal), and with the 5-nut layout. It has 3.75 inches of back space, which means there’s a good amount of clearance for the brake components. The alloy is made using low-pressure casting technology, which lends the alloy unmatched strength and style.

What do we think of it?

It’s hard to go wrong with a simple choice like the Pro Comp Series 69 wheel. It looks great regardless of how old or new your vehicle is. And that’s not all, it’s fairly affordable as well. Users have appreciated the looks, fit, and value these wheels offer. Check with the seller about the compatibility and warranty (Pro Comp says 2 years, but the Amazon listing lacks info). One thing that needs to be kept in mind is that the product doesn’t come with lug nuts — and one user has pointed out that your TPMS might need to be changed/updated.

Pros
  • Great-looking alloy
  • Not expensive

For the style-conscious: Helo Maxx HE791

Helo Maxx Wheel with Gloss Black Machined (15x8'/5x4.5')
161 Reviews
Helo Maxx Wheel with Gloss Black Machined (15x8"/5x4.5")
  • Available in 15” 16” 17” 18" and 20” diameters with various widths and off-sets
  • Gloss black painted finish with machined face and center cap
  • Lifetime structural and a one-year finish warranty against peeling or lifting of finish
  • Lug nuts are not included with wheel purchase
  • Pictures are meant to show the style of the wheel not necessarily the bolt pattern – please refer to product specifications below for exact product information

Wheels are a great way to express your personality when it comes to style. You can opt for more subtle designs if you want an inconspicuous look for your Jeep. But if you want your truck to attract more eyeballs, there’s obviously the more design-oriented models like the Helo Maxx.

Standard size for older Jeep Wranglers

Like its sibling, it’s also available in a variety of sizes (15 – 20 inch), finishes (painted or chrome), and PCD layouts. The one we have here is a 15-inch x 9-inch version with 5 holes and a 114.3 mm PCD. This is the standard size for early Jeep Wrangler models. But check with the seller about the compatibility because the minutest of variations can lead to the wheel being of no use to you. It’s backed by a lifetime warranty on the structure but the finish has a warranty of one year.

What do we think of it?

The Helo Maxx is a handsome wheel, especially in this combination of gloss black, which effectively gives it a two-tone appearance. The lug nuts aren’t included, as is the case with the other Helo. Users have praised the quality and value. Pay close attention to the size, center cap, etc.

Ready for the street: Pro Comp Stryker

PRO COMP Series 31 Stryker Matte Black (15x8 / 5x4.5 / -19mm)
177 Reviews
PRO COMP Series 31 Stryker Matte Black (15x8 / 5x4.5 / -19mm)
  • 15x8 / 5x4.5 / -19mm / 4.5
  • Street Series
  • Finish: Matte Black.Wheel Material:Aluminum
  • Part Number: PXA7031-5865

Finished in matte black (other finishes/colors are available) and made of aluminum, the Pro Comp Stryker wheel will boost the street-cred of any vehicle. And on the Jeep Wrangler, it’s bound to work well. It’s a good design that works exceptionally on thick tires. To further its appeal, the nuts on the outer rim break the monotony of the all-black-finished wheel.

Single-piece rim but looks like an expensive multi-piece one

It’s got a 3.75-inch wheel backspacing, allows a considerable brake clearance, and is backed by a 2-year warranty (confirm with the seller). While it may look like a multi-piece rim, it’s a single-piece unit, which keeps the price in check as well. It weighs about 25.6 pounds.

What do we think of it?

The Pro Comp Stryker wheel presents a solid aesthetic appeal, but that doesn’t let its price shoot through the roof. It’s one of the most affordable options out there. Users have appreciated the finish and the way the wheel makes their Jeep look. You’ll need to buy lug nuts, though. Check with the seller about the warranty and compatibility before buying these.

Pros

Pros
  • Looks like a multi-piece rim
  • Inexpensive

  • [SPECIFICATIONS] 5x5" (5x127) Bolt Pattern. 17x9 Wheel Size. -12 Offset (4.5" Backspacing). 71.5mm Centerbore. Higher offset wheels for Jeep also available.
  • Our wheels require cone seat (also known as acorn/taper/conical) lug nuts for proper installation. Compatible with cone seat OEM Jeep lug nuts and aftermarket cone seat lug nuts. We carry lug nuts for Jeep Wrangler JK (ASIN B01M1ZG721) and Jeep Wrangler JL (ASIN B00OMMBGNW). Note that the two Jeeps have different threads.
  • [NO SPACERS REQUIRED] These 17x9 rims provide aggressive wheel offset, giving up to 2 inches more inner clearance depending on what OEM Jeep Wheels you have. Conquer the rough terrain trails with a set of Rocktrix Wheels designed, tested with an advanced process that ensures rigidity & long life.
  • [ADD'L FEATURES] Fits 32-35 inch tires. Note: Fenders, leveling kit or lift kit may be required for the larger sizes. Features a Matte Black finish with a durable clear coat that can endure the toughest weather conditions.

The most affordable option here, the Rocktrix RT105 is a set of four wheels made for the Jeep Wrangler. The beautiful looking alloy is available in a 5-nut, 17 x 9 configuration, offers 12 mm offset and 4.5-inch backspacing. For the stock size, the rim is compatible with the Jeep Wrangler JL and the Jeep Wrangler JK.

Can accommodate large tires

The CNC-machined wheel is made of aluminum, is finished in matte black, and looks great on the Wrangler. The wheel can accommodate larger tires, and it’s made in such a way that you won’t need spacers, thanks to the wheel offset. The 5-V-spoke design isn’t very common on SUVs, hence looks even better. The entire kit includes four wheels and four center caps.

What do we think of it?

You’ll need a different type of lug nuts for the wheel, so check with the seller about that. Also, while compatibility is mentioned, it’s best to check with the seller if you’re planning to run different tires. The recommended tire size (17) by Rocktrix is 256/70 on stock suspension. The warranty information isn’t available, so please confirm with the seller as well.

  • Great looks
  • Available as a set

What are the best rims for Jeep Wrangler?

While it’s hard to go wrong with the Jeep Wrangler’s highly likable design, the wheel design has to be in line with the way it performs over years — and hence a warranty is essential. Out of the choice that we have here, the Rocktrix is straight on the top of the list for the way it looks. It’s possibly second to only the Pro Comp Series 69 wheel that has a simpler, evergreen appearance — also very purposeful. The Helo wheels offer a more stylish solution than standard rims, especially the HE791. (The HE878 is in satin black.) It’s matched by the looks of the Pro Comp Stryker, which looks a bit like a multi-piece unit but is actually a single-piece alloy. It’s not very expensive, either.
