Who makes the best rims?

Hey folks,

I know a bit about tires, but virtually nothing about rims. Who do you think makes the best aftermarket rims?

Lots of good rims. Most are made in China. There are a few made in USA. You might list what your needs are.

Will be looking for a second set of rims for my winter tires for my upcoming new JL. I would like something black (or dark, not silver), but that won't rust like a traditional winter steelie.

(Later maybe another set of off-road summer rims for mud tires. I plan on putting some all-terrains on the stock wheels.)

Don't want anything that can chip paint. Preferably not made in China.

I'm just not familiar with any wheel brands like I am for tire brands.

it is hard to find USA made rims. There are some Raceline (most are imported), some Eagle Alloy American Eagle, but not many others. Some catalogs list AEV as usa made but they are not. I guess the good news is even Chinese made rims have to meet quality standards for DOT etc. Quadratech and 4wd.com have an extensive list of rims on their websites. I guess find something you like and then research that specific rim.

Hey these ones look cool from American Eagle. Looks like there's a Canadian distributor right near my work too.
