Warn Debuts Epic Wheels

Warn Industries entered the automotive world in 1948 when they began producing locking hubs for surplus WWII Jeeps. Their famous winches followed in 1959, establishing them as one of the most recognized names in the off-road equipment market. By the end of the 1970s, Warn established a partnership with Ford, securing them worldwide product distribution. They opened up additional manufacturing facilities near Portland, Oregon, and in the decades to follow, innovated some industry firsts, including the first three-stage planetary gear train and free-spooling clutch, and the first ATV winch.


WARN Epic Wheels for Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator

Warn’s newest product line is another first (for Warn, that is). The new Epic Wheels lineup offers fitments specifically manufactured for Jeep Wrangler JK, JL, and Gladiator JT. With a design that incorporates durability, performance, and rugged style, these new wheels will level up the curb appeal of your rig and hold up to many miles on the trail.



Epic Wheels are offered in three designs: Diamond Cutter, Jackhammer, and Moonsault. All three are available in black or gunmetal powder-coated finishes. Two different center cap options (black/gold or black/red) allow for further customization. Epic Wheels are available in a 17- x 8.5-inch size with a 5×5 (5×127) bolt pattern and 0 offset. These cast-aluminum, hub-centric wheels are a perfect fit for the Wrangler JK, JL, or Gladiator JT.



Epic Wheels are TPMS-compatible and work with factory lug nuts. They’re also tested to meet stringent SAE J2530 certification for durability, ensuring a long service life both on and off the trail. Additionally, they are covered by a lifetime structural warranty.
