Need ideas (and pics) for Rock Lobster wheels!

I have a 2013 Rock Lobster Rubicon and I can't decide between black & silver or all silver wheels. I don't want to go all black. It seems that most forum members here are biased toward black, but I think that silver looks good on brighter JKs (such as the bright red Rock Lobster).

I do know that I want something close to 0 offset (if not negative), to push the tires out and beef up the look a little. I do not plan to add a lift anytime soon or modify any of the suspension. I plan to run 285/70/17 tires.

I've narrowed my list to the following:

American Racing 898 (silver)
Rugged Ridge (silver powder coated)
Ultra Rogue (diamond cut with black)
Ultra Phantom (black with silver accents)
Ultra Thunder (black with silver lip)
Ultra Nomad (gray with diamond cut)
MB Chaos 5 (black with silver lip)


Thoughts? Feedback? Chime in! If you have a Rock Lobster with custom wheels, please post pics!

Hate to do this but I think you may like the Black Rhino imperial wheels. Discount tire can get them. I just put in a set of 17" x 9" at around $150 each. Silver and machined, very nice quality.

I can't post pictures yet but I can send you a picture of them on my TJ with 32" wrangler duratracs. They would easily fit 33" x 12.5's.

Send me an email at bobbigham@yahoo.com and I will sent reply with pictures.

Or pm me and I will try to send the photo.

Oh, I also considered the ultra rogue as well, but they were in limited supply.

Just sent you an e-mail. I'm curious to see the pics!

There are so many wheels out there that this decision is quite intimidating. That's not a bad thing, though! :-)

Those look good! That's a clean ride. I'm looking to stick to 17s, however.
