Rugged Ridge today introduced its newest custom wheel design for ’07-’14 Jeep® Wranglers (JK), the XHD, an 18 -inch seven spoke aluminum alloy wheel offered in three finishes.
Rugged Ridge’s new XHD Wheel is a direct bolt-on replacement measuring 18×9 inches and features a 12 mm offset and 4.5625 inch backspacing. The new design is hub-centric so the wheel precisely centers itself; resulting in less wheel vibration and allowing ultimate control and consistently smooth travel for even the most rugged of expeditions. In addition to minimizing wheel vibration, Rugged Ridge’s hub centric design also avoids clearance issues for brake rotors, steering components and suspension travel found in other wheels.
Owners can purchase the wheel in their choice of ultra-hard black satin, silver or gunmetal powder-coated finishes; each durable enough to stand up to the abuse of trail duty.
“We’re excited to add these new wheels to our existing line-up of alloys for the JK,” said Pat Johnson, Business Development Manager at Omix-ADA. “Wheels are one of our top selling categories at Omix. New products like this afford us and our retailers great opportunities to grow our business and satisfy the changing tastes of today’s Jeep owners.”
The wheel lip is set off with stainless steel button-head socket cap screws around the perimeter of the wheel, giving a three-piece look and allowing owners to accessorize it with an optional rim protector (Part Number 15250.03).
Rugged Ridge wheels have been independently tested and certified to exceed SAE J2530 standards for wheel strength and durability. The wheel includes a limited lifetime structural warranty as well as a one year finish warranty.
The XHD Wheel is available online and through select Jeep and off-road parts/accessories retailers nationwide starting at $299.99 each.
