Aka WOLF wheels. I'm likely going to put these on my build. I'm still debating between Wolf wheels (in white or black) and more modern (and expensive and less off road capable) Sawtooth or Kahn Defend wheels. Realistically I won't be doing a ton of heavy off road. Mostly roads, fire roads and some sand. Occasionally will take it on a trail adventure.

Assuming I go with Wolf, trying to figure out exactly which ones I would buy. Can you tell me what the difference is between the below 2 photos? The first photo is what I generally see as OEM Wolf rims w product number ANR4583. However, I can't figure out what rims in the second photo are. I like the second photo better. Thanks for help

The second are generally known as modulars. They have few similarities with wolf wheels outside of bolt pattern/diameter/material. They also typically have more offset resulting in wider stance

And the thickness of the steel is... noticeable. NATO wheels are very substantial.

Thanks guys. Found the modular wheels on RoversNorth. Sorry, lots of terms being used here. Wolf is the same as NATO wheels? So the Wolf wheels are stronger and thicker steel than the modular wheels? But the modular wheels have more offset and a wider stance. Is that correct?

And can you help me figure out the difference between the "road" HD wheels - $147

And the Wolf wheel with offset? $99.50

Thank you again!!

Genuine vs proline. I do not like the look of modulars, and they're not as strong, but to each their own.

Get the Plw216 or plw216w
