Rims can have quite a big impact on the handling as well as on the visual appearance of your Four-Wheel-Drive and that's why you should choose them wisely. If you already have changed your wheels for drive-ability or looks you could be seen as a true enthusiast. And if you are still tempering with the thought of getting a new set and you drive a Jeep Wrangler, then this is probably good news for you.

AEV Conversions has developed, or as they say 'engineered', a new piece of a precious metal ring, that's designed to specifically wear the shoes of a Wrangler JK. They are called AEV Salta and feature a unique offset to perfectly balance for tyre clearance up to a 37-inch tyre for scrubbing free handling.

The black powder-coated Salta Wheel features a 10-spoke design just like the race cars in the Dakar Rally. These spokes add extra strength for higher durability during their off-road abuse. Recessed valve stems protect the valves from rock rash on the trail - just like the already known AEV Savegre and AEV Pintler wheels. AEV has tested the wheels to stringent SAE standards - that's what they say at least. On top of that AEV Conversions gives those wheels a lifetime structural warranty. The AEV Salta are availaible in Matte Black at current but will be available in Onyx and Silver soon too.
