An often overlooked but incredibly important part of any wheel choice is load rating. All wheels will have their weight rating molded or stamped into the inside. You build up your Jeep and add hundreds of pounds to its weight. Don’t shortchange your build with wheels that are not rated to handle the maximum gross vehicle rating of your Jeep. Each wheel is rated for what it will carry, so if you have four 2,500-pound rated wheels, you can handle 10,000 pounds of evenly distributed gross vehicle weight.
