To each his own, black rocks, mineral grey rocks, silver...somtimes rocks, ha.! Chrome, will never rock on my rides, unless they are a Longhorns decal

I don't know about you guys or where you live but it's $115 PER wheel for powdercoating here in the DC area. I thought that price was preposterous since most wheels don't even cost that much. I'd be willing to pay $50 per wheel to have the stockers done in black but anything more than that and it's not worth it imo. These companies need to get a f'ng grip with their prices.

Everything but the Flame Red is Black so what else would look so cool! $37.50 blast & powder coat black, Can't beat that with a stick!!!

Nothing in this post makes any sense to me? Can you reword it for me? I can't figure out if you're making a statement or asking a question or what. $37.50 where and who? Everything but red is black? Huh?

I have a combo of black and machined silver. I did not want the wheel to disappear into the tire and visa-versa. But that's me and that's my Jeep . Not a fan of all black wheels either.

Thanks folks. I had these on my TJ. Very strong wheel, easy to keep clean, satin, not chrome and AR and everyone else said they wouldn't fit. I'm stoked.

Front view and in Texas, there is no problem with the tires sticking out past the flares.

Westfork22, now I really like those black wheels. To me they just need a contrast. Not look like all tire. What wheels do you have?

I prefer the black, but like that gunmetal. And, dang, I love that CJ-7. My dad bought one new in '78 and passed it on to my older brother in 1984, who eventually sold it. How did you keep it in such awesome condition? Or did you restore it? Very nice.

I am not against chrome. They look great on a bike. But for a Jeep, anything too shiny, just doesn't go well with the overall look.

Look, I left the chrome screws on the gas cap cover which shows, I am not totally against chrome

These are 16 x 8.5 Level 8 Trackers in Matt Black with 33" Duratracs.

Those are actually Strike 5s. . I came VERY close to going with the silver lipped ones like you have, and sometimes even wish I would have. But I am still very happy with my all black model.



Not to mention............ladies love my all black wheels.
