What are your favorite aftermarket wheels? What wheels would you consider for the TRX? Thoughts on a solid face wheel like this Black Rhino?

Personally I’m hoping there will be a factory beadlock capable option. If not, I’m sure a set of Raceline beadlocks or Hutchinson will be in my future

First Post....sorry if it is already answered...

Do we know the correct offset for aftermarket wheels?...Would love to get a wheel order in before the truck arrives?

Will 37's fit?

Thank you

Those methods are popular on the Raptors. Bronze looks great against the Leadfoot Raptors so I’m sure it will look sharp on Granite Crystal.

Haha that is exactly the combo I was going for had the trx took any longer

Perfect and the 701 is one of the only 18" Method wheels that clear (the new RAM) so I think you'll be good. Those monster rotors make tough for certain wheel styles.
Have you seen any pics of the rotors/brakes yet, I was curious if I wanted to upgrade to brembo down the road as well

Not of the TRX but it sounds like they are very similar to the current generation RAM. I'd probably stay away from Brembo unless you don't mind 20 or 22". The 6 piston Brembo kit for Raptors requires a 20" and the 8 piston requires a 22". A company to look out for would be alcon. They have trophy truck clamping power and fit under 17's. I'm actually curious if they'll make a kit that allows you to downsize to 17.

A friend of mine at Apollo Optics did a back to back test with a raptor. And the other video is just a hype video.

I know we all like to have the best wheel combo, but I'd advocate that the 6 piston Brembos are so good it justifies whatever wheel size you need to clear them. I owned an SRT Jeep and the stopping power of those Brembos is something I never seen matched, not even in my twice priced Maserati.....

No denying that (6 piston Brembos on my ISF), but as a guy who likes to go offroad and air down. Sidewall height > Brakes for me.

Good enough for BJ Baldwin, good enough for me lol

Agreed 1000%. I had someone pull out in front of me in my Challenger and I have never had a vehicle come to a stop as quickly. It actually surprised me that I didn't even get close to the other car.

I totally agree on sidewall height, but unless you intend to go extreme rock crawling I think that even on 20" (mind you the TRX comes with 18") you should have enough side wall for whatever you will try to do, being that at high speed off roading you do not need to air down as much as in rock crawling
