thanks,
Those are actually xenon flares, but i do want new ones. once i take care of a few things on the jeep im going to get the metalcloak arched fenders. cant wait!

What a difference! I like it a lot! Funny, I just ordered 33" MT/Rs today only I went with 15" Black Rocks Matte black. I've got a thing for black wheels but I also had a set of Classics like yours and thought the polished finish looked great. I can't wait to try out the MT/Rs against my KM2s. Glad you shared the pics!

07XMan2Door 03-25-2011 09:33 PM

I love the new look!!! Really sharp!!!

2400hd 03-25-2011 09:45 PM

Looks great. It's refreshing to see something besides black wheels on a wrangler.

thank you
yea, I haven't really gotten a chance to try out the new shoes yet, im having a problem with my rear diff, so once I get that fixed ill finally know how they ride. I did like those black wheels, but im really happy with my new classics, it was about time for a change for me.

thank you,
I cant wait to test them out, I have some broken teeth in my rear diff, so right now they are just sitting and looking pretty. I should have wheels turning in a week or so I hope.



thanks for all the kind words guys.

Rubicon06Va 03-26-2011 02:32 PM

Very nice! It's like an extreme make over! Much more BadAss! Now that's worth every penny. Good Job.

KRawson 03-27-2011 11:21 AM

Thanks a lot guys, now I'm just researching a place to regear. I'm going to go 4.56's I think. I found a place that will do it for 975 out the door with gears, bearings, oil and labor.

easygoingpa 03-27-2011 11:41 AM

My buddy there in Irvine uses T&J performance. Highly recommended!

easygoingpa 03-27-2011 11:42 AM

KRawson 03-27-2011 11:50 AM

I have heard of those guys, thanks, ill give them a call asap.

jorgeII 03-28-2011 09:02 AM

Answers the age old question, black or aluminum, polished, chrome. IMO just makes the vehicle and wheels/tires "pop" more! Looks great! I should be receiving my MT Classic locks today and hope to have some pics up to share soon.

I think upgrading from the all black with 31x10.5x15all black to 33x12.50x15dick cepeks made it look like it used to have 4 spare tires

Yea I am really happy with the new shoes. The cool thing is I got everything off of craigslist too. At first I was considering painting the wheels black. But once mounted I'm sticking with polished aluminum and never looking back. I think it has a great look.

KRawson 03-28-2011 12:36 PM

Thanks again for all the kind words, that's why I love WF.

M_ 03-28-2011 01:31 PM

Jealous of your soft top too... Is that rampage or softopper?

99Wrangler4x4 03-28-2011 01:33 PM

These look great!

yv4me 03-28-2011 01:41 PM

Really like the polished aluminum! Tired of seeing black rims.
