Black Jeep Black Wheels.. Pics?

Okay everyone,
It's been 6 months since I sold my 1997 TJ and I just bought a 2001 sahara. It is black with tinted windows and a 4" lift with 33s.
I'm just wondering what you guys think I should do about wheels? Black? Chrome?

Suggestions please and don't be afraid to through up some pics..

black if you plan on wheeling it. chrome if you want to be flashy at the mall

Go with black wheels dont do chrome, its a jeep not a sports car (no offense to anyone running chrome wheels) but personally i think black jeeps look sick with black wheels

I would go with alloy wheels instead of steel. I had a hard time keeping my old steel wheels balanced. I switched to black alloy wheels and the wobbles went away.

Steel: Black D window



Alloy: MB 72 series. $85 ea

If you cant decide get the moto metal. Black With the chrome accents. I personally hate the chrome wheels on mine. Although flashy. Pain in the butt to keep clean.

ID:	69733 I got some simple procomp series 52 wheels and think the look good, also only about $55 on the internet so you could probably get them for cheaper at a local place.

I notice it doesnt have much lip to them? What is the backspacing and how do they stick out like that? Did you need spacers? I really like these!

No spacers, just the wheels. Not sure of the exact backspacing, they are a -19 offset. This is the size I ordered: MB 72 15X8 5-114.3-19MTB. You can look them up on Discount Tire's website.
