In Need of Wheel Reviews

Hey everyone, I'm looking to dump my stock wheels on the JKU. Looking for something lightweight, well-made, and hopefully in a decent price range. I'm focusing on the Ultra 164s, Level 8 Trackers (Pros maybe?), Pro Comp 7069. I love the matte black look and the classic stamped design these setups share. These wheels are in a far more acceptable price range for me. Of course I'm getting greedy too, and looking at some Method Race Wheels. Looking for reviews. Info on weights, quality, prices, and pictures are welcome. Looking in the 17x8,8.5,9" range. 5x5. Any reviews, recommendations, etc. are greatly appreciated.

Those are the pro comps. 16's. I like them a lot. I got them about a month ago and they seem pretty rugged. The one drawback is they are made in China if that sort of thing matters to you. It usually matters to me but they were exactly what I was looking for

I love the look of them. Sweet rig btw. I have a black jku and I think they'll go great if I get them. My big concern with the Pro Comps is the quality. Seen a lot of bad reviews and some good ones as wel. If you have any insight on them feel free to share!

Glad to see someone from the 617 on here. Home is in the 603 myself.

Thanks. I appreciate that. I've seen them on a few rigs around here. I took them wheeling in New Hampshire just a couple weeks ago. I love me some class 6 roads. I had no troubles with the wheels. The center caps are plastic which I thought could be an issue but they haven't been so far. They are light weight I think they only weigh 21 pounds a piece. Overall I think the quality is good especially for the price. I have only had them about five weeks so we'll see how they are going forward but I think they will be fine. And once you do make your decision it will be like you have a totally new jeep. Maybe I'll see you out on the trails up there!

If you want to save money just buy the rims you really want the first time. I have wasted more money on rims and tires not buying what I wanted the first time and buying rims based on price. Ultimately was not satisfied until I got the ones I really wanted.
