I have the Argent Gray on my black 2Dr and they look really good. Wonder if black Pintlers would have looked better. Hmmmmmm

I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder but when I installed my AEV Pintlers they looked ehhh pretty good but something was missing. Then I put those yellow center badges on and it gave them just enough contrast and really made them stand out.

IMO, those black Pintlers would just kinda blend in and not show any detail if they didn't have that yellow center piece to add contrast. I'm not a big fan of yellow but the yellow really makes them "pop"....

for $209 I would personally look at other options, but if you love it, go for it!

I think the black would look better on lighter colored vehicles. My "Ferrari" rims get lots of compliments...

your Jeep looks good with the "grey" one's / the yellow logo, does look a lot like a Ferrari wheel/logo

I don't like how close they look to the stock rubi and sport s wheels. The yellow emblem was also a bad choice.

Before I decided on the AEV Pintlers I almost went with the Mickey Thompson SideBiter wheels. They're all black with black center cap and are a really good looking wheel.

Not really my thing (I agree - too close to stock) but if you like them, that's all that matters

I have these available to order, and all orders through me get UPS ground free shipping (lower 48)

The wheels will be available to ship in about 2 weeks from AEV.
