May have found my new wheels - What do you think?

I know I have posted a ton about trying to pic wheels for my jeep, but I think I may have found the wheels I'm going to go with on my '13 Billet JKU. I found a pic of them actually on a billet JKU.

What do ya think? Honest opinions.

Those are nice wheels! I think they'd look sick on your Billet.

I think it's a good look. So much so that I bought them for mine. A little dirty in the pics.

That's even the tire I was thinking of running. What lift do you have? How do you like the Nitto Trail Grapplers?

I was looking to go with the LT315/70R17 since it's a D rated tire and save a little weight/stiffness.

I used to want straight up black wheels but I'm kind of liking the off color "locking" rings or bolts. Those are nice.

Nice that there's an aluminum ring around the wheels to match the body color.

A friend pointed out something to me, back when we were teens. Ever notice how some wheels really go well with cars and some just look wrong? Yeah. Come to think of it, I did think about at least half of that.

Matching wheels to a body and paint scheme is an art -- which many people take for granted when they walk into a tire shop and start drooling over a set of rims. Once they are on they may look ... odd, out of place or even bizarre, because they don't really match the vehicle's styling.

These days you can take photos of wheels and Photoshop (or even MS Paint) them over your rig and see how they'd look.

The lift in those pictures is just a Teraflex 2.5 budget boost. It was used as a stop gap to spread the costs of wheels/tires/lift/bumpers etc..

I love the wheels and would would give them an A+ grade. They look better in person than pictures. The tires have held up well but they are stiff and heavier than some of the other options. I would give them a solid B and buy them again if the price was right.

I think they look really nice, even though I am getting a bit sick of the fake-beadlock-bolt look in general. I may sell my Methods just for that but that is another story.

There are not many Wheels that I think look nice on a Wrangler, but I think those look great, especially with the Billet Silver.

I have a 14 jk black. I'm going to put a lift and some 33s on it since it's my DD. What wheel size should I get? I just can't decide. And should I go for the black on black look or...?

Those were on my short list when I was looking for wheels. I like them. But I took them off my list because I didn't like the fake bead-lock design and I was looking for a 5 spoke wheel. I found very few options for Jeeps that had appropriate backspacing. I wound up getting the ATX artillery which I wasn't wild about, but I couldn't find anything I liked better. 5 wheels is a big chunk of money, make sure you get something you like.

I'm trying to decide between this wheel and the Fuel Off-Road Anza. They both look very nice.
