Wheel color

Wheel color can compliment the color of your Jeep and I really like the silver rim/blue Jeep combo but want to hear other opinions on if you like silver or black wheels on a blue Jeep?

Pictures also will be helpful.

Maybe in the future I'll black my wheels out.

I've got a midnight blue jeep and the stock wheels. I am also trying to decide between black and silver when I upgrade in the near future.

I think a dark silver/black chrome would look killer on a blue Jeep.

It seems silver wheels makes the blue look lighter which is good for the P.Blue and the black wheels make the blue look darker.

usually on a lighter color vehicle i will put on darker wheels. on a darker color vehicle i put on lighter color wheels. i think patriot blue would look best with lighter wheels because even though it's lighter than midnight blue it's still a dark shade compared to say yellow or white.

Photoshop your Jeep before you decide.

I have an LJ in Patriot Blue and I was considering swapping out my stock side decals for electric green and possibly spraying my wheels the same color just to be different.

Recently installed these black soft 8's on my Blue TJ. I do agree that the blue Jeeps look good with a grayish wheel, but I got a good deal on these wheels and it looks okay.

I think these would look good on a blue Jeep. But, I just happen to like these wheels.
