Overwhelmed with wheel choices - help please!

I am a soon to be JKU Sport S package owner and am looking to upgrade the wheels. This will mostly be a daily driver however will be taken on some trails. I plan on keeping the stock 17" Goodyear tires. The Jeep will be in the Billet color. I'm wanting black (possibly with a hint of chrome), great quality wheels but am very overwhelmed with the choices. Satin, matte, gloss? What are the advantages/disadvantages? And then there's Teflon. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You could look into buying a set of 5 2013 Rubicon take offs with the Mud Terrain tires included. Pretty cool wheels n tires & plenty of guys removing them with zero to very low miles. I think if you watched classifieds long enough you might even find a set for a heck of a good price.

If you think you are going to do some heavy offroading then you might be better off with steelies.


Good Luck!

I went with the 2013 Rubi wheels with the Mud tires. Very quiet and drives better than the goodyears.

teflon, as well as machined wheels are easy to clean.

chrome as well as polished wheels needs a lot of attention (periodic polishing once water spots tend to set in)

the other colors (matte black/satin/gloss/bronze/etc) they all clean just like oem wheels.

and the more spokes u have, the more time consuming to clean.
