Are these wheels decent?

Hello,
Hoping for some opinions of these wheels. I've never bought wheels before. I believe I have chosen the backspace I need for my set up. So I'm mostly looking for opinions on the wheels themselves

Re: Are these wheels decent?

How much lift? What suspension? What size tires?

Just about an inch. 31x10.50
Rough country shocks
HD crown leaf springs
Stock wheels now.
Just rubbing the LCA a bit and not interested in changing them. I have some nice rubicons

Cool. Thank you. I just usually hear of people talking about crager and wanted to make sure this brand was well enough regarded

There are some places you can get the steel wheels for $39 each

These are what I roll on with no lift 33x12.50r15. I don't rub anywhere after I cut and folded the finders

I haven't had much luck on Craigslist here in CO. But I suppose I've only been looking a few days.
No one is shouting to steer clear of the pro comps (pun intended) so if nothing pops up on Craig's I wouldn't mind having a new shiny set

But dang 80 bucks sounds great

Re: Are these wheels decent?

Can I use the same lugs I already have?
Do I actually need a center cap?

Almost all the different rims will use factory lug nuts. 10" rims are to wide for a 12.50 unless it's a beach rig!

33 and no lift -- How about a picture or two

The 8" wide version of that rim looks to be $76 each at the moment

Here's mine on one tire with a little 6.5 inch ramp. I am taking it out next weekend so I'm gonna try and stuff it and measure and decide if I'm gonna get 15x7 or 8

Sounds like most any steel wheel will be fine. Especially for my purposes. Camping and occasional kinda tough dirt roads
