M/T. The other one looks too shiny and glossy.

Agree totally about the coat on the MT, but the US Wheel has more depth,which I love, and I cant seem to get over that. I have searched and googled but I cant seem to find any TJ's with either of these wheels to compare.

There are a zillion pics of the MT's and the soft 8's all over the internet on TJ's.... Steel vs. alloy is the big ?

Let me help you with at least one pic.... These are Cragars, but they're essentially the same wheel...

There's a LOT more to consider here other than which wheel looks best. One is alloy (MT) while the other is steel. The alloy wheel is about 8lbs lighter and will perform better .

I'm looking for black wheels for my JK and these are almost identical to what I've got in mind. Could you tell me what the name is of the M/T wheels so I can look them up?

Thanks!
