Cant decide on wheels.. Streetlocks?? Opinions wanted

Just got my 03 4.0 and wondering about some wheels that would look good on my silver jeep. My last jeep was black and never considered goin with a black wheel, just thought it was to much black for me. Went with some Mickey Thompson Classics (Polished) and thought they sat everything off. Now it seems black is the logical choice for my silver TJ. Want something different than the Soft 8s. I found these and curious if they are hard to balance, rust easy or any other problems. I will be adding a 4 inch lift with Duratracs.

I always liked those but thought they were pricy for steel wheels. Those would look good on your silver jeep with a 4" lift and 33's for sure. I think they would balance fine like any other steel wheel.

Yeah, they run around 120.00 a wheel. Almost double the cost of the soft 8s. I wont be ready to the first of the year, so I have some time to decide and hopefully I will get some feedback on the pros and cons by then..

I've heard/read in other spots that those type of rims rust quick, especially in areas around the rust belt, due to it being hard to clean out behind the lip of the street lock, the lip tends to catch all kinds of debris and mud.

Buy AL wheels and don't buy the "beadlock" look. It's really stupid unless you have actual beadlocks. I have a set of beadlocks on my 1 ton that has stickies on it and they are actually useful, and I don't have to worry about clearing the speed bumps at the mall.

I love the look & Function of the Trailworthy Fab Hummer conversion real double beadlocks. I don't want to run funny 16.5" tires, so I went Soft 8's. I will say I've had alot of out-of-balance issues, not sure if it's the steelies or the MTR/K's.

MTR's. I rotate mine every 2k. Steel rims also bend easy.

I like what you are already running. They are a good looking wheel.

If you want the beadlock look, look into the Mickey Thompson classic locks. They have a removable lock ring in different colors. And also come in black

You looking to get rid of the Outlaw style you're running? I agree, it's a good looking wheel. Interesting in selling? What are the dimensions?

Not sure on the size, they were on there when bought it. They look like 15x8 with around 3.75 backspace. I will check when i swap them out.

Personally i like the streetlocks 152s. The fake bead rings break up the color of the rims. Have ran them on both my jeeps.
