Paint them!

I have been DYING to see black painted Sahara wheels (as I try to talk myself into a Red Sahara with a black top).

I went over to a different Jeep dealer yesterday (River Front in North Aurura) to see what they had on the lot (not much). But while I was there...I really studied the Sahara wheels. The spokes could easily be painted while the outer rim/lip is left silver.

I've also been looking at different tires that don't really impact the overall size.
Duratracs come in 275/65/18. Not sure if they would rub or not.
Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac
If I knew photeshop better...I would black the rims out to see how it looked.

If you have ever seen a white Mojave they are really sharp with the charcoal wheels. I just ordered a set of the Mojave wheels for my jeep and can't WAIT to get them on later this week. They are going to look great.

Have you checked out the Mopar Classic 5 hole or Classic 5 spoke in black?
I believe Pat from Fields posted it in the 2012 Wrangler information thread
a couple weeks ago. You would go down to 17" wheel but IMHO the 18's
are an odd duck anyway.

Im a big fan of the darker gray wheels but the selection is still a little light. Raw aluminum/silver has been around forever and so has black, the rich gray colors like the argent colored AVE Pintlers have my attention.

They are indeed AEV wheels, just more expensive from Mopar!

I love the stock black wheels and I like the simple flat black steel wheel too.

Thanks, I went to their site and see that Mopar is asking $$ for a JEEP center cap.
