AEV wheels silver or argent?

I am color blind and have no color coordination ability what so ever so what looks better on a white jeep between these 3 wheels? I like them all equally just curious what others think.

If there was an Argent Savegre on the poll then that would be my choice but given the parameters, I vote for the Argent Pintlers.

I like the silver. It's different. I'll be buying silver pintlers on my TJ.

I'd say the argent Pintlers, but I'm biased since I have a set myself.

I expected to say argent without giving it much thought, but in those three pictures I honestly like the middle one the best. I think in real life I'd probably vote the argent, but maybe not.

Ok, I keep scrolling back up to look. Based only on those photos (and nothing else) I like the silver Pintlers the best.

With the silver and some Plastidip, you can have both depending on your mood.

I tend to like the Savegres but they are 6 lbs heavier per whee 25.5 vs 31.5 lbs, not that that is the huge but may play a roll in deciding which ones to get.

Funny name for a color 'Argent', which means light silver tincture...

[QUOTE=Chad s;10553705]Billet with argent

I see a lot of that combo locally. rarely have I seen White with silver which has me thinking might be good to be different or on the other hand it is because it looks funny lol.

They are my 2 favorite wheels so going to be one or the other just not sure which or which color. Originally was set on the Pintlers but the Savegres are really growing on me. Lots of people don't like AEV but they started right down the street from me and I personally think they look good. Just not sure which ones lol.

They are nice wheels, sure. You said yourself you see a lot of them locally. I don't personally get the appeal of them but its your rig and your money. You said you have a white Jeep. My personal advice would be to get the wheel you like the best, and paint it white. I have white wheels on a white Jeep so I'm a little biased. I get a lot of compliments on it.

Silver Pintlers. I was going to put a set on my white Arctic.

Biased, but they never go out of style.

While I can appreciate your color blindness, the fact remains you are asking for group consensus on what should be a personal vision of your vehicle.

If you can't decide on how to personalize your Jeep, just don't. It won't be yours.
While I appreciate your opinion I still want to know what the general population thinks looks best. They look the same to me so when it comes time to resell I want to know what will be more eye catching. has nothing to do with personalizing it.

I voted on the Argent Pintlers, good contrast with the white. I'm a little biased, I went with those on my Flame Red, love the look.

I messed around with the AEV preview thingy far too much when I had my Arctic. I hated the all-black wheels that came on it and wanted something that would pop with the white.

Again: silver Pintlers.

Personally I love the new Rubicon wheels and would pick up a set on the cheap, but they don't offer the backspacing to run a bigger tire.

that and I wish they were just a bit wider. I personally love how they look just wish they were a bit wider and I did not have to run spacers with them. I run quality spidertrax spacers but really prefer the AEV 5.2" backspacing.

I like the both wheels but the Savegre design is more contemporary and in the long run may be just a trend. The Pintler design is timeless and the Argent color provides more contrast highlighting the wheels. If resale value is important, I would go with that combination. Used AEV wheels are in high demand so if you keep your stock units you can always sell them separately.
