Of those two choices, I'd 100% go with the silver lip ones. Those cad bolts on the first one look horrible, IMHO….;-)

I actually want those Fuel Trophy's myself. There are a few photos of those on Jeeps floating around this forum, but not many. Love the all black look, but also like to be a little bit different.

Black and silver always look great together. What size rim/tire are you going with?

I like the bottom ones also.

If you like the look of these, check out Method Race wheels. Same styling, lots of choices.

You should read up on hub centric and lug centric wheels.

With lug centric you may get some vibration.

I know you are not going to like my set up but I'm going with teraflex level and 295/60/20 trail grapplers. I don't do a lot of off-roading but I do tow a snowmobile trailer up to Adirondack in north NY a lot during the winter months.

I'll take door number 4. That would be a nice rim on a Billet Jeep. Billet was my first pick when I decided to order my 2013. But when we got there to test drive, the salesman did not have a billet on the lot and lent us a commando green to try out. I changed my color choice to CG after that, but I still like the Billet.

Method Racing Double Standard

These Method DS also come with a machined lip.

Wishing I had got those instead. Just to break up all the black.

Bottom wheels look awesome if you ask me. The silver strip makes all the difference.

I didn't even know about method wheel thanks for the link. It sucks they don't come in the wheel size and offset I want.

I agree with pretty much everyone else. I would do #2. How much are those though and do you wheel? You are already going to be part way to beadlocks. I talked myself out buying beadlocks the first time around to save a little dough. Now I have beadlocks on my list by Spring so I am shelling out even more cash.

I'd go with the majority here and go with the bottom wheels.
