"New" wheels

A couple of weeks ago I posted pics of the wheels I'd gotten. Here's some pics of the Jeep now that I've gone back to stock wheels.

Old wheels...

I have to say those black rims looked pretty sharp on your ride. I'm curious as to why you went back to stock.

I'm not a fan of black wheels, but I think they do look better than those particular OE wheels

I went back to the stock wheels for several reasons, the black wheels that were on it were 15x10, steel and very heavy.

I happen to like the Canyon wheels, and they were only $40 per where I bought them at, a couple needed a little work in the finish dept.

Those that might want the steel wheels, they are in Tx right now. I didn't have room to bring them back. I don't know when I'll be able to go and get them at this point, so they won't be for sale for some time to come..

You sure those were 15x10? Unless those are 13.5" tires, the sidewall bulge looks like it's on a 15x8...

Going by the 15x10 stamped into each of the black steel rims, yes they were 15x10s. The stock Canyons are 15x8.

The tires are Goodyear Duratracs, 33x12.5x15.
