American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) just added a new set of wheels to their Jeep JK wheel lineup. Dubbed as the Borah DualSport, these wheels are compatible with all Jeep JK’s from 2007 and up. The classic styling are a welcomed improvement over the simplistic 5-star factory wheels, and do so without crying “look at me”!
The hollow spokes of the Borah are reminiscent of the original Corvette Z06 wheels with addition of either a Protection Ring (for the street), or a fully functional Beadlock Ring for running ultra low pressure off road. Both rings are interchangeable (thus the DualSport moniker) for DOT compliance purposes.
The Borah is available in Onyx Black or Onyx Black/Machined finish. The removable outer ring features a silver finish that can be painted to taste. If you prefer the looks of the wheel without the outer ring, AEV supplies black nylon hardware to keep the threaded bolt holes free of debris. The outer rings also come with all necessary hardware including Grade 8.8 for the Protection Ring and Grade 10.9 for the Beadlock Ring (for increased torque specs)
AEV also released the following disclaimer regarding DOT compliance:
“Please Note: Borah wheel with the Beadlock Ring installed is DOT compliant but that does not necessarily mean that they are 50-state legal for street use. Check state and local restrictions on beadlock installation and use BEFORE ordering. Beadlock wheels must be properly installed and require routine maintenance. As a general policy, AEV recommends that beadlock wheels are used for off-road purposes only.” -American Expedition Vehicles
