Need some suggestions on wheels.

I've decided to finally ditch the factory fender flares and grab some of the 6" pocket flares that I really like.

I'll also be lifting the Jeep (2-3", as it stands right now), so I'm looking at fitting 33s on it. Stock wheels won't work, so I'm wondering where I can get a nice set of wheels for a decent price that will hold up to overlanding (I've got an excursion coming up, so I'm building the Jeep up for it).

I'd also like the offset to make the tires stick out just a bit beyond the 6" flares; they need to be offset a little further outward anyway due to the fact that I don't want any rubbing with 12.5" Nittos I plan to run. That means I'm looking to stick with a 15" wheel to run those 33x12.5R15s.

They don't need to be the prettiest, but I'd prefer if they were already painted black (glossy, flat, matte, doesn't matter).

Thanks!

I have procomp 7069's. I paid 156 at quadratec and that was for an 18" wheel.

All flat black.

Hey, those look great! Wonder how they'd fit on my TJ. What's the offset (backspacing)?

Has anyone had any luck with the Pro Comp Series 97s? Will that backspacing of 3.75" be sufficient for 12.5s without giving me the dune buggy look?
