Show off your black/17's !!

Hello, all you Jeep-aholics-

I have everything dialed in on the Jeeps that I am ordering with the exception of aftermarket wheels. Sticking with 17's and going with 35's.

I have seen random pics on the site with some of the wheel names in signatures, but I am anxious to see what all is out there. I've Googled, but still not found my soul mate. If you have a wheel that comes in a 17, that is helpful. Pintlers are great, yes, I know, but it isn't the only one out there. I'm searching for that one badass wheel that is love at first sight. Much prefer cast.

Please post your black wheels with the make. Besides, you all love to show off your rides!

Thanks in advance for the help. Jeep on!

I hate the new Rubi rims so what I did was pick up a set of Moabs used with tires off a sport from the local buy and sell for $300, sold the tires for $100 and spent about $60 on plastidip. I'm happy with how they turned out.. I'd post a pic except there are a bazillion plastidipped Moab's on the forum already.

I thought about going the Moab route, but I had heard that I needed to get spacers if I was going to use a 35". True?

I saw a thread elsewhere on the forum about a guy who sold his stock tires to DT and bought new ones that were larger. Do they actually do that? I am getting a JKR and a JKUR and would love to unload 10 tires! Not to mention the wheels for each....

I'm sure you could get more if you go the Craigslist route, but it was nice to just let DT buy them and not have to mess with them.

I just installed these last week. 17x8.5" Level 8 Trackers with 315/70/17 Duratracs.

I got them from Discounttiredirect.com. They were $21xx total shipped but with rebates came out to $19xx shipped to my door for a set of 5.

Do you have a lift or level? And what does that size equal out to? 33s.....35s?

Thanks
