What a difference! I like it a lot! Funny, I just ordered 33" MT/Rs today only I went with 15" Black Rocks Matte black. I've got a thing for black wheels but I also had a set of Classics like yours and thought the polished finish looked great. I can't wait to try out the MT/Rs against my KM2s. Glad you shared the pics!

Looks great. It's refreshing to see something besides black wheels on a wrangler.

thank you
yea, I haven't really gotten a chance to try out the new shoes yet, im having a problem with my rear diff, so once I get that fixed ill finally know how they ride. I did like those black wheels, but im really happy with my new classics, it was about time for a change for me.

thank you,
I cant wait to test them out, I have some broken teeth in my rear diff, so right now they are just sitting and looking pretty. I should have wheels turning in a week or so I hope.



thanks for all the kind words guys.

Thanks a lot guys, now I'm just researching a place to regear. I'm going to go 4.56's I think. I found a place that will do it for 975 out the door with gears, bearings, oil and labor.

Answers the age old question, black or aluminum, polished, chrome. IMO just makes the vehicle and wheels/tires "pop" more! Looks great! I should be receiving my MT Classic locks today and hope to have some pics up to share soon.

I think upgrading from the all black with 31x10.5x15all black to 33x12.50x15dick cepeks made it look like it used to have 4 spare tires

Yea I am really happy with the new shoes. The cool thing is I got everything off of craigslist too. At first I was considering painting the wheels black. But once mounted I'm sticking with polished aluminum and never looking back. I think it has a great look.
