Looking for new wheels

Red TJ with 3" lift, 33"x12.5" tires. Tires are new so I won't be changing them. I am looking for some wheels that are a little less 'cool/flashy' than cepek's that came on it. Any ideas? I would like some pics. Especially with the same set up.

I was thinking maybe like the crager soft 8s, black.

Well, Kate painted her DC's black and they look great..... Look her up, I'm sure she has pics in her profile. And I don't have 3" lift, but here's mine with 2" and 33's and 15x8 soft 8's..... Love them, Jegs has the best price I've found on them too....

Wow. That's sweet. I can sell these cepek's and make a little money. Does anyone think I can sell the tires with the wheels?

I have my old wheels for sale & people ask me if I will sell the tires seperate from the rims. You can make more doing it that way probly but I want to sell them asap to pay for my new ones & selling doesn't go well in Moab it's a small town. I have them on CL & a SLC paper as well as on here.
Wait!.........Robin you should take them

15x8's at Jegs are 39 ea last time I looked. 16's will be more expensive of course. 15's will give you more sidewall...

DC Width

I just measured my wheel width...it is between 11 and 12" with a ruler, it seems. How would it affect my tires (33"x12.5"x15") if I put them on say 8 or 9" rims? I guess I would only do that because they are a little cheaper. It would look alot different because those DC stick out a long way, right. The crager soft 8's wouldn't stick out as far...is that right?

The DCs are 15". I tried to measure the width. They between 11-12" with a ruler. Haven't even thought about a price. They are brand new. $650 for all 5. Plus shipping.

Actually that's too much. More like 450-500 for 5. Maybe less. I'll basically sell them for what it costs me to get 5 of the soft 8's and installation, balance, etc.
