My wife wants me to put ugly chrome rims on our TJ. I keep changing the subject.

I like the stockers myself...they look awesome painted a slate gray with the silver jeeps.

Bonus to you...you can sell the stock wheels probally for more than what you paid for those black Dwindows.

I like the steelies better...but that's just me. Stock rims are nice looking...but just don't look as "tough" as a set of black steel wheels. Stockers look more like they belong on a street driven Jeep and not a trail rig.

+1 on those steelies my friend! Just set the Jeep off right, the stockers just seem a bit too simple.

Steel rims are THE way to go ! I went with the Black Rock 997 Type 8.

Much sweeter than the alloy! Selling the alloys for other mods is a great idea!

PS. Need black lug nuts too !

If you can sell the stock wheels for more then the steelies (which you should) then I say good deal. Otherwise I would have just painted the stock wheels. At least the stock wheels won't rust, they could still corrode but not nearly as fast as steel wheels will if scratched.

I like the black rims better on your jeep, but on a black jeep, I prefer chrome to set it off.

I got rid of my MOABs too and replaced them with Dick Cepek DC-1 wheels.
They didn't stay pretty for long after being on the rocks a few times. :shrug: live and learn I guess.

I like the look of the black steelie too. Especially the soft 8.

One thing you might do that will help just a little bit (sacrelage to some folks, I know) is get yourself some Eagle-1 All Wheel & Tire cleaner and a scrub brush and get after those tires.

One of these days I'll have the cash rattling around so I can get a set of soft 8s. In the meantime I'm thinking of painting my DC-1 wheels satin black.
