Thoughts on these wheels?

These are the wheels I picked out for my black 2014 Sahara Unlimited. What do you think?

Reminds me of import tuner wheels. As long as you love me, that's all that counts anyways.

Alright those who don't like them...give me suggestions! They have to fit on my Sahara and be 18 inches! I am still in thought mode..so bring on your better looking wheel ideas, but they have to be black or mostly black and not a million dollars! ;-)

I was going to suggest these, but you had to say they can't cost a million, and that's exactly what a set of 4 costs

I was looking at black wheels also. So many have fake looking screws that do nothing and leave me with a what were they thinking feeling. I like to see designs where the features are use full. The more I looked at the black ones the less attracted I became. It gives the vehicle a blah look and sometimes just looks like someone is driving around on old spare tires and wheels. Chrome didn't do it for me either. So I went with the Rugged Ridge Drakon in gunmetal. AEV has a nice argent wheel as well. Smooth surface es and no gaudy fake stuff to clean around. A bonus is you can actually see the wheels in pictures not overly sparkly like the chrome. With the gumetal or argent you loose the driving around on an old rim look and can notice a nice subtle contrast between the wheel and the tire. Not just a black blob under the vehicle body.

Here is where I have been watching


http://www.treaddepot.com/wheels/fuel.html

Tried to get pricing fuel would not release and tread depot does not know yet. per fuel they will start appearing in nov and in jan they should be readily available. Fuels pricing is usually very reasonable though

also, if your planning to use your jeep as a jeep and go offroad, go with a cheaper/smaller set of wheels.

Not a fan of the ones posted...they remind me of the chrome "blades"

Nice set of procomps would look great

I love that the silver parts look like buckles and the name of the wheel is shackle.

Be sure to read read read about wheels so you get the right back spacing and offset for the future. As you read more about wheels and tires you will probably want 33" or 35" tires at some point and if you don't have enough backspacing they won't work.

Also, buy 5 wheels. The old tire cover on the back for the mismatched wheel is a bad look.

I totally agree about the 5 wheels. And I am having the conversation about backspacing and making sure the wheels will work on bigger tires with my dealer who is going to do the work for me.

I like the fuel anza's and would look good on your black sahara. I was thinking they would clash with my anvil, unless there is an all black version. What about these method racing wheels?
