What wheels for my 05 Willys?
I am still waiting on pulling the trigger on the lift kit and wheels/tires for my 05 willys. But looking to get opinions on wheels for it. Should I keep the stock 15's and just sand them down and repaint, because they are starting to rust already.

Or should I get these American Racing wheels and leave them black or paint them Olive Drab?

Or do you have other suggestions? Lift will be RE 4.5 superflex w/ 3.5" springs and 33's

If you are wanting the lift, I say go with the American Racing rims. They should stick out a little further than the factory tires and will look better in my opinion. With the stock rims and larger tires, you may have tire rub when steering. I also vote for leaving the rims in the black powder coat.

If you want to keep more to the willy's deal...wagon wheels and paint them the same as the stock wheel.

like this...

Also think this wheel would look good painted to match your jeep.

And you can find more about them here....US wheels.

U.S. Wheel : Steel Wheels

Oh and so you know your factory wheel you have is a 15x7...If the 33'' tires you are wanting are 12.5 wide...well you need new wheels. 15x8 is good for 12.5 tires.

Ratuna, I have a 2005 willys and installed a 2" lift with american racing polished aluminum like the black wheels in your pictures. I used 10.50 summit tires. Love the jeep but it needed a little something shiny on it so thats why I went with the polished aluminum. I will try to get a picture this weekend and post it on here.
