Thoughts on these Jeep JK/JL wheels?

In my search for a black wheel with a compatible backspacing for my lift and 35s, I stumbled across these mopar wheels. I originally found them for sale on Quadratec but it looks like they pulled them down and only have the silver ones up now on their website now, but others are offering gloss and satin black. They are 17 x 8.5 x 12mm.

They look like the wheels jeep stuck on their Trailstorm build for EJS a few years ago. They look nice on their build but when I look at the wheels themselves, I don't know how I feel about them. I originally wanted their beadlocks but I don't have the cash for them

Curious to hear what others think of them?

Imo...depends on the color of the your jeep. Of those 2 wheel pics I prefer the silver...looks close to gun metal. But the black wheels look better on that orange n camo jeep. I have a '17 silver jku big bear so I'm biased as I prefer matte black over satin or glossy. With a jeep of a different color I'd likely choose silver or gun metal over any type black wheel

I have a 2016 Black Bear in Tank so I think some type of black would look best.

Actually that second picture is the "satin" black wheels. I forgot to attach the pic of the silver. Here it is

Obviously subjective but, to me, you could certainly do a lot worse.

Very good points! maybe I should just save up some more pennies for the mopar beadlocks, just curious to hear what others think since I don't see anyone using them.
