Pintler Wheels for 2018-2019 Wrangler JL
The JL Pintler combines timeless styling with the innovative features and off-road strength that you've come to expect from AEV. However, this is not just another one-size-fits-all aftermarket Jeep wheel.
AEV designed this wheel specifically for the JL Wrangler because despite sharing the same DNA as the JK Wrangler, many aspects of the latest generation Wrangler are quite different, so simply re-purposing a JK wheel was not the best solution. The JL Pintler's unique offset of +25mm, works perfectly with the various OE fender flare variants and provides the optimal balance of tire clearance, scrub radius and handling. Additionally, this wheel features a larger center cap bore (62.77mm) for compatibility with the JL Wrangler's OE backup camera and resized pockets for the larger factory lug nuts.
Available in either an Onyx or paintable Matte Black finish.KEY FEATURES:

This wheel has a center cap OD of 62.7mm, which is larger than the previously used 55.5mm OD center caps.WHEEL WEIGHT CLEARANCE:
Due to the design of the wheel barrel/drop well on the Pintler combined with our high offset and the JL's large brakes, clearance for stick-on weights inside the wheel is VERY tight. Standard thin .25oz stick-on weights clear the brake package. Larger .5oz and 1oz weights do not.POWDER COATING WARNING:
As a general safety precaution, AEV does not recommend powder coating aluminum wheels. The heat range and duration of the powder coating process may overlap the heat treating and aging of cast or forged aluminum wheels. For this reason, powder coated wheels will not be covered under AEV's lifetime structural warranty. All repairs and/or color changes should utilize automotive type liquid paint.
