BORAH DUALSPORT JEEP JL WHEEL
The new version of the wheel (named after Idaho’s tallest peak) is specifically designed for the JL Wrangler, paying close attention to the offset, back spacing and center cap bore requirements. JK owners fear not, there is also a Borah DualSport available for JK’s 2007-2018.
For many owners who are unsure about making a commitment to a true beadlock for their daily driver, you can start with the Borah in a street configuration and then purchase a beadlock later.
It gives you three options; either a fully-functional Beadlock Ring for running very low tire pressure off-road, a Protection Ring designed for street use as well as additional wheel protection off-road, or no ring for a simple, minimalist look. Both the Beadlock and Protection Rings are interchangeable, giving you the flexibility to run a Protection Ring on the street or upgrade to a functional Beadlock Ring for offroad use.
You can get the new wheel in either an Onyx or Satin Black finish, with Onyx/Machined, Galaxy Black and Galaxy Black/Machined all coming soon. The optional Beadlock Ring and Protection ring are both available in a silver or onyx finish so you can easily paint them for a custom look.
The Borah wheel with the Beadlock Ring installed is DOT compliant but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are legal for street use everywhere. Check provincial, state and local restrictions on beadlock installation and use BEFORE you order.
Heads up, beadlock wheels must be properly installed and require routine maintenance. As a general policy, AEV recommends that beadlock wheels be used for off-road purposes only.
Due to the variances in bead thickness between different tire models, the Borah wheel is not compatible with some tires in the fully functional beadlock configuration. AEV has confirmed that the tires listed below are compatible with this wheel. And although other tire brands and models may work, AEV only recommends using the tires listed on this chart. Tires that are not listed on this chart may have a bead that is too thick for this wheel, which can lead to wheel failure, vehicle damage and personal injury (sounds like their lawyers talking). AEV will be updating this list with additional tire manufacturers and models as they test them. Please contact the AEV Sales Team at (248) 9260256 if you have any questions or concerns about tire compatibility before ordering.
