I'd say go for it. If it were just the wheels I'd say no, but I bet they will look good with the tow hooks.
That being said, I'm more concerned with how you plan on painting them. I'm pretty sure powdercoat is the only way to do it correctly. If you plan on using spray pain I'd be afraid that they would look like crap almost instantly.

If I had a blue Jeep, I'd seriously consider orange accents...and I'm probably one of the most conservative guys here!

I thought about finding a complimentary color for my Red Rock JK, but nothing pops out at me as looking good. I wonder what Rescue Green would look like with my RRCP................

We can tell you are new around here. If it is not green and black, black and black, red and black, blue and black, and has the stock antenna on it, it is an abomination.

I like it OP and think it can be pulled off.

Not a fan of it, but it's your Jeep, your money, your choice.

mine is one of those all black jeeps, not opposed to fun colors at all, it's just the scheme i wanted on this one.

My next jeep, if i get another, is gonna be one of those crazy mopar colors.

Blue/orange does go well together though. All those corporate sports teams probably went with the color combinations for a reason.

The good part about paint is if you do it and don't like it all you have to do is paint over it.

Yeah too many teams have the same colors. Got my wife some black/yellow oakleys once because she is a Bruins fan. People always think we're steelers fans and neither one of us like them.

If you like blue/orange, just do it. It would be original around here at least, haven't seen one with that combo yet.

I agree! and i am also a broncos fan so i dig it! Just add some more hits of orange like painting your antenna and maybe grille inserts. I think it would ground the whole rig and look good

I disagree! Unless you ARE a broncos fan, painting your antenna and grille inserts would be horrible.

Cut out a piece of cardboard to cover the inner wheel and hub. Tape everything on the inside of the lip and then tape a couple layers from the lip of the wheel to the outside of the tire to catch any over spray.

After that I applied 5 different layers.
