    I went over the Cascades and picked up five 14" ALCOAS. They were mounted on a project that never went anywhere so they are like new, never been down a road.
    It looks like they have a 1999 date code.
    I am going to put my Wrangler XTs on them and hit the Christmas Valley Dunes next spring.
    I wish they were M/T Challengers but those might be out there somewhere waiting as well. IMG_2952.jpg IMG_2954.jpg IMG_2955.jpg IMG_2956.jpg

    So that is what they are called, I have these on my 86 cj7 but not as wide of course, Were these a dealer option or just purchase as aftermarket,

    Strictly aftermarket! I don't think the factory ever put anything wider than 8" on a small Jeep.
    Nice looking wheels if you have a use for them that wide.

    mrtii you could have any number of wheels on your rig.
    ALCOA made and makes many factory wheels like the Ford 1/2 ton which looks very similar but would have hub cap bolt holes.
    Here is a good article and some pics.

    Alcoa and Mickey Thompson Wheels - 4x4Review Off Road Magazine

    The first pic is the ALCOA info on the inside of the rim.
    The second is a 12" ALCOA 8 hole Classic.
    The third is the 14" with the 15x15.5x15 Goodyear XT.
    The fourth is the 15x15.5x15 XT.
    The fifth is my 15x10 Mickey/ALCOA Challenger.
    The sixth is the M/T stamp in between the lug nuts that is on ALCOAs sold through Mickey Thompson Inc.
    And the last are early and late Renegade wheels.
