Rim Job!
 
I'm going to be getting my lift soon. I want your opinion on what rim would look better. I'm getting them in 15x8 and wrapping them w/ 33x12.5 BFG Mud t's. My Jeep is a red 06 X.

Any pics of red Jeeps w/ either of these rims? Not exactly the same, but same general color

Not a big fan of the "classic 8-hole" wheels... but if you like 'em, its your Jeep. Check out the Eagle Alloy series 186. Usually can find them for under $95/each.

Before I got mine I was thinking of getting American Racing AR-23's. I haven't seem many Jeeps with them.

RIPBiker13 07-26-2007 07:36 PM

Any better ideas? I'm open to all!:D

These are nice

RIPBiker13 07-26-2007 07:55 PM

What do you think of these? And do you think the polished or black would look best? Wost of the other parts I'm getting such as bumpers are going to be black, but the wheels I can't decide.

I like the blackones that u have on the first post.

debruins 07-26-2007 08:25 PM

eh idont know about those they look alittle flat, there are other ones that look alike to those but have a little git more curve to them, those would be what i would get, they have a little bit of chromy flare but mostly black, and a little more shapley

binaryking 07-26-2007 08:26 PM

I went all black on everything except my wheels. I think it makes them look even better because they stand out.

EnigmaMan 07-26-2007 08:30 PM

I was thinking about these Rims.... Not bad for the price.
They are 16x8" and are $315 for the set and $75 for shipping all 4 of them.

These and the black locks should look sweet or maybe the red ones too

These look badass! Can you please post the link? I like the red locks I think that would be really cool. Do you have any pics with a red jeep and these wheels w/ red locks?

Unfortunately the pic does them no justice. They are gloss black and do have a curve, they aren't flat.

here you have,
I will suggest look @ diferent stores to get the best price I went to this link because wast the firstone to show the pics of locks ring kit

RIPBiker13 07-26-2007 09:52 PM

Are those going to look good or will the black be better? I like the idea of the polished rim w/ red locks, but might it be possible to get those rims in black w/ red or polished rings?

Just trying different ideas. I feel lost as far as the wheels go anymore. :confused:

RIPBiker13 07-26-2007 09:55 PM

I can only find the 15x8 5 4.5 3-5/16" backspace. I need 3.75 backspace

2002Apex 07-26-2007 09:56 PM

Do they make the Mickey thompson brand classic 2s in black???

MCG 07-26-2007 09:59 PM

Ohh Maaan Dont get any more Ideas, it's your rig and the Who has to be happy with that Its You noone else.
So I will suggest go to any store get a couple jp and off road magazines and do your research online,What ever make you happy thats it,Here there is many different tastes,some people likes Black on Black other goes with Chrome,others polished,
5 spokes,or 8 holes it is matter of taste.
so once you deside you can make a poll between your favorite choice and that will help a lot.

Just my 2 cents
just dont get Blink Blinks hahahahaha

I think what you're trying to say is "bling-bling" :rofl: I'll make a poll then. Do they make the MT's in black? I could do a custom job on them... :D

RIPBiker13 07-26-2007 10:05 PM

Oh and I need to find the MT's w/ the proper backspacing. 3.75 or 3 5/8 I think is the same.

Yeah bling bling hahah,
I thought about that too the MT are polished so you should make the shine go away or a very light sandblasting in orther to get a good surface for powder coat or any other paint, I think we are in the same boat,these wheels will be perfect in black !!

here is the link yo MT web page:

RIPBiker13 07-26-2007 10:15 PM

Okay that sounds awesome. Custom job to get them black w/ the red or polished lip, can't decide. but I'm still looking for the proper backspace. I can't run the 3 5/16" it'll rub.

RIPBiker13 07-26-2007 10:32 PM

I can't find the 15x8 w/ 3.75 backspace. So how about 16x8 w/ 4in backspace? Will these be ok to run 33x12.5 and be good off road? In mud and dirt mostly. If so then I'll get the rims and start modifying them. I'll have 4 of-a-kind rims! :D

debruins 07-26-2007 10:48 PM

those rims will be fine it will just be more expensive finding tires that fit on them

RIPBiker13 07-26-2007 10:55 PM

I found a pic of them! I knew I had seen it somewhere! They look great even w/o being black!
http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a1...5/untitled.jpg

RIPBiker13 07-26-2007 10:58 PM

As long as they perform. I can't run the wrong backspace that would be worse. How much more?

RIPBiker13 07-26-2007 11:10 PM

I'm looking for tires and finding it difficult. I am looking for mud terrains 33x12.5x16

I keep finding 16.5. Do these fit on a 16in rim or is that just asking for trouble?
