Crush Recovery Build: Wheels and Tires

In the past I’ve run 40″ and up sized tires, but this time around decided to go with something a little less aggressive in size. I chose to go with 37″ Nitto Trail Grapplers, they have great reviews for off road and on road use. They are extremely capable off road, but still give a nice and quiet ride on the road.

I’ve mounted the tires on a set of 17×9 Rugged Ridge Satin Black Alloy JK Wheels. These wheels have a great design, and Rugged Ridge also offers trim rings to help protect the wheels. I’ve matched the trim rings to the color of the Jeep. Check out the before and after pics below:

As the Photo Director/Staff Photographer of RIDES magazine, Andrew Link wanted his JK to stand out from the rest of the Jeep crowd. With the help of Xclusv Autosports he was able to reach his build goals.

A New Truck for Drew

It is with great pride, pleasure and honor that we post these pictures and applaud all involved in helping make the wish of one Drew Ducatelli and his family come true. The Make A Wish Foundation brought Drew’s wish to Mike’s Off Road and with the help of a few friends they managed to pull together and put together one fine ride.

Mike’s Off Road were welcomed into the Ducatelli Family home with open arms. Treated to quality dining and a warm reception when they presented Drew his new truck. Opportunities to do things of this nature don’t come along often enough and everyone at Mike’s Off Road hope to inspire others to reach out and do what they can to become involved with such a quality organization like Make A Wish Foundation.
