Jensen66 I got mine installed yesterday and headed straight for the mud. Black but a machined accent around the edge.

Pics please when you get 'em on. I'm just being nosy and I do like to see different configurations. My favorite wheels to date were the Mineral grey stock 5 spokes on my 2010 Mountain, Not black, not silver.

dreinecke I like black wheels but am beginning to see so many of them that I stuck with keeping my Moabs stock in finish. I like the way it looks!

Strange how I got negative comments about my black wheels and selling the 10 A wheels which are mostly black. I looked for silver wheels and couldn't find anything I liked. I have since found Pintlers in silver. I'm selling the black ones. I agree with you.

Do I detect sour grapes, whining, crying....about others personal choices? I think I do. Maybe we had better call for a Whaambulance!

Sweet! Glad you found them. Figured either Cragar or American Racing would have them!

The wheel below is currently on the Stitch Concept Jeep. They've recently, and smartly, switched out the original boring black spoked ones, that we've all seen on Stitch, for these slick slotted ones. So, I suppose it's fairly possible that it could be a lightweight prototype wheel that isn't for sale yet, if ever, I don't know. Hopefully Jeep will actually utilize this wheel someday.

Who makes these things?

VertigoTX I'm traditionally more attracted to silver alloy wheels much like the stock 17's that came on my JKUS. I've had some form of silver/chrome wheels on every vehicle I've ever owned. That said, I just plastidipped my stock wheels and I'm liking it. I've not decided if I'll get black wheels when I upgrade, or stick with silver and just use plastidip to change the color when I feel like it.

I'm not sure I understand the "cheap" comments though. It would be reasonable opinion to state one didn't like it because it's subdued, hides the wheel, doesn't attract your eye, etc.... It's akin to passing judgement to move forward from those opinions and saying it looks cheap. To me, that doesn't feel right.

There doesn't seem to be anything cheap about being a Jeep owner. Thanks for all the great pictures in all colors =)
