AEV Saverge II Wheel
If you haven’t heard of American Expedition Vehicles out of Michigan, you’re missing out. Known for crafting some of the boldest, most rugged overlanders on the planet, AEV has built up an untarnished reputation for quality and reliability. AEV has several different wheel options available for the Jeep Wrangler JL, but we’re most partial to these. They’re made from A356 T6 cast aluminum and coated matte-black, these AEV Saverge II wheels are designed to deliver a perfect balance of tire clearance and scrub radius for factory-like handling and compatibility. They’re even compatible with the Wrangler’s TPMS, and they come with a lifetime structural warranty, so you don’t need to worry about how they’ll hold up.
Mickey Thompson Classic Baja Lock Wheel
If you’re looking for a very affordable wheel from a renowned manufacturer, you’d be hard-pressed to find better than this Mickey Thompson Classic Baja. Admittedly, it’s not actually beadlock-capable; the ring and hardware shown here are purely decorative. But it’s still a durable, capable wheel from a company well-known for its durable, capable off-road products (Mickey Thompson being a bit of a legend in the world of off-road tires). These Jeep Wrangler Mickey Thompson wheels are available in diameters ranging from 15 to 17 inches, and come with a one-year finish warranty and a limited lifetime guaranty against structural defects.
Method Race Wheels MR105 Beadlock Wheel
If you’re looking for some Jeep Wrangler beadlock wheels from a similarly legendary manufacturer, these Method wheels might be the ticket. Featuring a durable matte-black finish that’s warrantied against wear, and awesome debossed “METHOD” logos, these wheels are TPMS-compatible and available in diameters of either 17 or 20 inches, giving you a breadth of options with regard to what tires you want to run. The beadlock ring on the Methond MR105 wheel is forged and held on by durable, zinc-plated hardware, and it certainly looks the business.
Pro Comp 34 Series Rockwell Satin Black Alloy Wheel
If you’re shopping on a budget, these low-pressure-cast alloy from Pro Comp might be the perfect Jeep Wrangler wheels for you. They offer a serious, off-road-ready appearance at a price that won’t break the bank, with a non-functioning beadlock ring and a sharp satin black powder-coat finish. Highly rated and available in 17-, 18-, and 20-inch diameters, the Pro Comp 34 Series delivers fantastic looks at an exceptional price.
Fuel Beast Wheel
There is a long list of Fuel wheels for Jeep Wrangler we wanted to include in this list. Fuel Off Road makes some stellar looking wheels, but it’s the brand’s 1-piece line that really has our attention. And maybe our favorite Fuel wheels for Jeep Wrangler are the Beast. Fuel Off Road boasts that the Beast is designed to be tough enough for trail duty while being engineered for daily driving duties. Of course, if you want a true beadlock, the Fuel Zephyr is a solid choice, but the Beast is surprisingly affordable and great looking. They are also available in 16-, 17-, 18-, 20- and 22-inch diameters.
Mopar Beadlock-Capable Wheel
When in doubt, go straight to the source. Mopar products are engineered by and for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, so full compatibility with your JL Wrangler is all but guaranteed. This 17” x 8” Mopar wheel is fully beadlock capable – although you’ll have to buy the Lock Ring Kit separately – and features a protected valve stem design that keeps the valve safe from obstacles on the trail. Manufactured to the highest OEM quality standards, this trusty, Mopar beadlock capable wheel is an excellent choice.
Rock Monster D.O.T. Beadlock Wheel
If money is of little concern and you’re simply in search of the best Jeep Wrangler wheels you can find, check out these Rock Monster wheels with D.O.T.-approved beadlock rings. Rendered in a bare-looking finish over aluminum alloy, this wheel will set you back a pretty penny, but it’s tough to put a price on the convenience and peace-of-mind of a road-legal beadlock. Ordinary beadlocks aren’t approved for legal road use, but these Hutchinson-style internal ones are, making it easy as pie to get to and from the ORV park with adequate protection. It’s the perfect wheel for the avid weekend warrior.
