The 15" MB72 with the 33 Duratracs, you can get them for just a little more then the 17" tire by itself. This is my next set except I am going with the MB Chaos 5 in black. It is a 5 spoke version with some silver highlights. They are also alloy and just $7 more then the MB72

MB Chaos 5

How bad does the hard road performance get? I hear the jeep can get a bit squirely in the corners on 15s. Mine is a daily driver so I need to look at both on and off road abilities.

The stock 18's actually look awesome black.

Help With Picking New Wheels/Rims

So I am slowly making mods to my 2011 jeep wrangler unlimited sahara and I started with taking off the front and rear bumper accents (trying to get rid of them if anyone is interested) and the second mod I want to make is changing the wheels/rims. I have been on every single website and have no idea how to pick the right ones. I want ones that are all black and look awesome but are in my price range (no more then 180 each because im buying 5). So can anyone help me out? It would be much appreciated. Also once I get the new wheels/rims I will be getting rid of the stock ones that came with it so if anyone is interested in those let me know.
