Question Wheels wheels wheels

I was thinking of getting a black wheel to go with my yellow and black JK unlimited. Came across these:

http://www.autotrucktoys.com/jeep/RC...6084C7706.aspx

Is it me or are they scarily under-priced? Or should I get a set?

It says it's for the JK, although I realize it's not for hard-core off road, it's more the look I like.

Thanks,

Ezi

My recommendation if you want steel wheels is to buy from a local dealer. because these things can come completely out of round, and mailing them back and forth can be a pain. With a good tire dealer in town, if one is screwed up through shipping, they have the headache of getting 5 good rims for you. And if they dont balance out right, they hav ethe responsibity to make it right....

just makes life easier.

I'm sure you can pick up the same wheel at a Discount Tire or Big-O for about the same or cheaper.

15"

are you sure you want 15" wheels? if you are dead set on that size, your best bet is to buy them from a local dealer. the reason being that not all 15" wheels will clear the JK's brake calipers. if you buy them on line and find that they dont fit, you will be hard pressed to get your money back.
