Savegre II for Jeep Wrangler JL & Jeep Gladiator
The Savegre II for JL Wrangler and Gladiator puts a modern spin on a classic AEV wheel design. This refreshed version of AEV’s original JK Savegre wheel has been updated in a number of ways to accommodate the JL Wrangler/Gladiator’s unique fitment requirements. The Savegre II features a JL/Gladiator-specific offset of +25mm, which works perfectly with the various OE fender flare styles 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 Jeep JL Wrangler’s OE backup camera and resized pockets for the larger factory lug nuts. Available in a Matte Black finish.
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.

- What makes this wheel different than the original Savegre Wheel?
The Savegre II is actually quite a bit different. Aesthetically, the Savegre II has much larger circular openings with raised accent rings for a much more stylized appearance. Additionally, this wheel has a JL/Gladiator-specific offset of +25mm, increased center cap bore to ensure compatibility with the OE backup camera (JL Wrangler only) and additional room for the larger OE lug nuts. Details like these are often overlooked with one-size-fits-all aftermarket wheels.
- What is the load rating on the Savegre II?
The load rating on the Savegre II is 2,400lbs.
- Does AEV do any testing of their wheels?
Yes, all of AEV's wheels are tested under SAE J2530 requirements. This consists of three tests in a controlled environment to test for radial fatigue, cornering load and curb impact. These tests are designed to expose any material weakness or design flaws.
- AEV products are normally made in the United States, so why is the Savegre II made overseas?
At AEV, we remain committed to American manufacturing, and we would much rather have our wheels manufactured in the US. But right now, you can’t get wheels made in the USA at aftermarket volumes. Still to this day, the only cast wheel plants left in the US are for high volume OE wheel programs. So unfortunately, buying from China is a necessary evil of being in the aftermarket cast wheel business. We have made the effort to buy from a high quality Chinese plant. Our plant also produces OE wheels for Volkswagen, Audi, BMW and Harley Davidson, among others. Our supplier has American employees on the ground in China who oversee our programs for us, and we have been over to China to inspect and visit the plant in person. When lower volume wheel manufacturing becomes feasible again in the US, we will be first in line.
- What is the warranty?
All of AEV’s wheels carry a lifetime structural warranty against manufacturer defects and a 1 year warranty on the finish.
