I'm trying to work out a deal with the dealership for an upgraded wheel and tire package on a new Unlimited Sahara. I'd rather 17" black rims and bigger, 32" tires over their stock package. However, the dealership isn't willing to do a "swap" and will only do the upgrade if I pay full price for it and get stuck with both my 5 upgraded wheels and tires as well as the 5 stock ones. The only other option is to upgrade to Mopar black rims with my custom build. I kinda had my heart set on some XD Series rims, but has anyone had any positive or negative experiences with Mopar rims? Thanks.

dont know anything about the mopar wheels BUT if you can drop the price of the jeep enough that you can upgrade with aftermarket wheels and tires then i would do that and sell off the factory rims.... you wont be messing with any warranties by trading wheels... thats all im saying.

Check around and see if you can pick up a set somewhere other than the dealer.. Factory reproductions may make them too. Mopar wheels are good wheels, but not sure they're any "better" than any other wheel....

For Jeep I will go for after market wheels.
I'm not saying that mopar wheels are bad or good, just that I like more what after market wheel manufacturers are offering, Like Mickey Thompson, Pro Comp, Cragar, Moto Metal, Walker Evans, etc.........
