I believe those were American Racing wheels before someone set them on fire.

Looks like a Panther 5 spoke. Found this on a vw. Not sure if they still make this style.

Those are the same wheels I have on my Jeep. They are Z-Racing Type 50 in 15x8.5 inches. They have approx. 4.1 inches of backspacing. I purchased a set from Sears about five years ago when they were on clearance. Yes, they do say "ZNL" on the inner rim.

The only other person I know of that runs these wheels is a guy named Ron. He's got some pretty good videos on his website. Ronz 2000 TJ Home Page

With that backspaceing you might want to check real close on tire rub.

Whew! Glad to know. That was driving me crazy and setting off my OCD last night.

I actually like those wheels. There is a TJ running around town with them, here where I live.

Yeah, I think Pepboys and Sears sold them for a while. I tried to get a set for my old Ranger but they were no longer in production and they couldn't me a set of 4.

No. 4.1 backspace is fine for 33s. I plan on mounting 35s on mine.

In that case, how about striping them down, polishing them, and putting a clear coat on?

Looks like your Jeep is silver. If that's the case I vote for paint em black.

Plasti-Dip is the easiest thing, but in your case I don't think you will be worried about the ability to undo it.
I had someone on here tell me that he painted his rims with crinkle paint... something with a texture would help hide those scratches.
