Need Wheel Advice

Im painting my 02 TJ Od Green and doing another military jeep tribute. Im looking for a set of wheels that will give me that old Willys feel. Does anyone have any ideas what wheels out there would give me that look?

Thanks

The old military Jeeps normally just had steel wheels painted OD. How about some soft 8's painted OD? Your link didn't work.

yeah ive seen the soft 8s done and they look pretty good od. I was hoping there was a solid steel wheel out there that looked similar to the original?

edit..... and what wheel offset would look good? I have the stock Rubicon wheels now and like the offset.

What does everyone think these would look like painted OD? Not sure I love the face that the have the extra lug pattern on the wheel.

Those definitely look like military style, but I'm with you on the extra lug holes. I don't know what the bs on the Rubicon wheels are, but standard TJ wheels I believe are in the 5.25"-5.5" range. 4" bs should give it a little wider stance if that's what you're looking for. What size tires are you going to run?
