There are some pics on an excursion with these rims on the black rhino site. Squint a little bit and it looks like an e-series. 🤣

Pictured below. If anyone has seen these or has these on an E-series I'd love to see it.

Thoughts?

Man, cool wheels, but they look like huge work to clean.

That's the beauty of black wheels to me. I rarely if ever clean them. Hit em with a pressure washer now and then and roll on.

Yeah, black does help. The little holes in those wheels will help. Just those outer knobs...

I wipe my black wheels down periodically.

I am pretty sure that forum member rizzabove had these wheels or something similar to these on his build before doing his U-Joint 4x4 Conversion. I had also debated these wheels early on in my build before ultimately deciding on Methods.

This is rizzabove's van when it was 2WD with the Black Rhino wheels.

Yes, those are the same manufacturer but different wheel. Almost the same name though and very similar. Those are Abrams or something military sounding and the ones I'm probably going for are Arsenal. Military looking wheels with military sounding names though all the same.

Thanks for the pic. I like the look!

I can't seem to find offset and backspacing specs on here...
It's probably been brought up and statuses somewhere, but it's escaping me.

Thanks

There is a more recent Thread - but this should provide you some insight:

EDIT: Finally found the post another member contributed (The Vermonster) which may help others understand Wheel "off-set" better with this visual diagram he kindly provided:

I guess I forgot to post this. I did indeed end up going with Black Rhino Arsenals and Toyo Open Country R/T's a few months back. Not too many miles on them yet though.

Specs: Black Rhino Arsenal 17x9.5 -18mm offset, 4.5” back spacing
tires are 35x12.5x17
Sitting on Quigley/RIP and front trimming of pinch weld and Bushwacker was necessary.

Baby got a new pair of shoes for Christmas. Ditched the 16” wheels for 17”.
