In theory, the only parts of your off-road rig that are in regular contact with the terrain are your tires and those of course, are wrapped around your wheels where metal meets metal. While bouncing over ruts, stumps and rocks in your 4,449 lb. Wrangler Rubicon or 6,650 lb. F 150 Raptor, have you ever asked yourself just how strong your wheels are? Try riding on cracked wheels or wheels with such poor fitment that your oversized tires are rubbing the suspension every time you make a sharp turn. To make a human comparison, you want well-fitting hiking boots that are up to the challenge on your feet, not flip flops. You want to drive your off-road rig with confidence and that means you want the best off-road wheels available. If you'd like to take a look at our list from last year, click here.
