looking for good rims

hey yall. currently i have aluminum rims that came with it when i got it. 2006 TJ by the way. problem is, aluminum dont exactly hold up very well, and they are all bent. looking to replace them with a steel rim, 5-4.5 pattern. i currentlt run 33-12.50-15's and dont plan on going bigger. also price is a factor. thanks all for you help.

Ordinarily steel bends, alloy and aluminum break.... I'm confused. Soft 8's are a popular choice, but like all steel wheels they will bend if you beat up on them too much.

Soft 8's are nice as well as the classic D window steelies. check jcwhitney.com they have good prices and often have free shipping codes you can enter in and save $ that way. Were you gonna go 15x8 or 15x10 wheels?
