Dan from France, new Jeep owner

Hey everyone! American fellow here, but I'm living over in France. Finally got a little piece of home and got me a '97 TJ.

Looks like a nice community here, already enjoying the standard wave as you pass a fellow Jeep owner on the streets.

Dan

Here's a few pics. Need some help/advice getting this looking how I want. Oh, how I long for living in the US when it comes to this sort of stuff.

My first line of business is to get new rims and tires - staying with 15" rims and unfortunately going back to stock tires (215/75) because of legal reasons over here.

Was thinking Goss Modular Chrome wheels for something sporty ( don't want too shiney though)

Looks like this: http://www.djip.eu/WebRoot/ce_fr/Sho...020_Chrome.jpg

For tires, no idea what I can get at 215/75 that won't look or feel just too small. Of course gas mileage will be better (woo?) but who cares. Any ideas welcome!

Lastly, I want to repaint the fender flares as they are horribly faded. Trying to find Krylon Fusion or something like that here is a nightmare. First auto store I went in to, I asked them if they had any paint for plastic. They told me you can't paint plastic. Hahah...
