Of all Jeep Wranglers stand-out features, few are more noticeable - or memorable - than the fifth wheel. But the fifth wheel is only 20% of the journey. For the four wheels in contact with the ground, the 2012 Jeep Wrangler features standard and available wheel options which form the foundation for any journey worth undertaking. Go in style.
1. Aluminum Wheels: Most wheels feature a concave design to help prevent scratches that might occur while driving off-road, and aluminum wheels reduce unsprung weight for a more precise steering input and improved handling characteristics.
2. 17-Inch Beadlock Rock Monster Wheels: For extreme off-road use, choose the exclusive 17 x 8.5-inch Beadlock Rock Monster wheel. The wheels rim is actually bolted to the tire so you dont pop a bead which allows you to air down with a super-wide footprint for the ultimate in traction. Its also street legal and DOT compliant.
3. Tire Pressure Monitoring System: Wranglers Tire Pressure Monitoring System regularly checks inflation levels for optimal safety, security, performance and fuel economy. If the levels are off, a warning light will illuminate on the instrument panel. This feature could save you money too. According to fueleconomy.gov, you can improve your gas mileage by around 3.3 percent by keeping your tires inflated to the proper pressure (thats up to 11 cents / gallon savings!). Proper inflation also benefits the life of your tires.
4. Wheel Locks: Mopar wheel lock kits help protect against wheel and tire theft without affecting wheel balance. Each wheel lock kit includes five chrome-plated locking nuts and one exclusive key.
Rotate tires every 8,000 miles or at the first sign of irregular wear, even if it occurs before scheduled maintenance. For more on Beadlock Rock Monster Wheels, Wheel locks, and other Jeep accessories by Mopar, visit mopar.com.
