There are some decent aluminum rims that can be found for sub 100$.

Summit Racing sells some american racing wheels for just under 100$. Discount tires has their MB brand wheels that can be had for 100$. Some pro comps are right at the 100 mark.

If you want to go cheaper you can get steel wheels for 50-60 bucks like crager and pro comp also has steel wheels. I would just look around summitracing.com, quadratec, 4wd.com, 4wheelparts.com, discount tire, etc. to see if you can find something you like at an acceptable price range.

I kinda like these:


Summit racing has them for 97$.

Discounttire.com has some nice looking wheels. I also like the MB 72s at 89$,



or maybe unique steelys for 60$.

Had these on the XJ I got rid of. I like them a lot. Around $112 a wheel on Quadratec. I plan on getting them again for my TJ when I get the funds.
