Itsfun00 I like the Rubicon rims

Black98 Since you have a black ide keep a metal look or that two tone style. All blacked out on an already black jeep is too blan but chrome sticks out too much and dirtys too easy. Polished aluminum looks nice.

TJDave I have had a bunch of different wheels on my Jeep since I have had it. When I first bought it stock, and before I new better, I bought chrome steel wheels, 2"BB, 32" BFG A/T's, and Bushwacker flares. The chrome was really hard to keep clean, winter road use would make them start to rust, and was constant upkeep with steel wool.



I traded the chrome wheels for some black D-window steelies. I later bumped up to 33's.



I picked up a set of Rubicon take-offs with A/T tires to run in the winter when it was still my daily driver.



I was having balancing problems with the steel wheels that I never had with the Rubi wheels. Maybe it was the weight, maybe it was the Toyos, IDK. I sold them all and went with some basic black MB alloy wheels and 35" Xtreme M/T's. Easy to clean after wheeling, no wobbles at all.



Aluminum is definately the way to go, IMO. Black or silver look good on a black Jeep. I love the Rubi wheels, and would of kept them, but I would of needed to run spacers. I did not want to do that.

JK Kid black in my opinion looks much better

SteelBlue44 In my opinion chrome is NEVER the answer. Plus chrome is much harder to clean if you deal with dirt/mud, and especially salt from the roads in the winter. So i vote black, with some beadlocks

Black would look awesome with that blue

Yeah. I wash cars as my job. Im 16. And i use this stuff called black back. I think thats the name of it. But you get it at like auto zone. But it brings out the color and lasts for a good little while. You should check it out.

I wash it once a week. And i rarely go offroad.
