If you’re building the Jeep of your dreams, you’ve got to find the right set of wheels.
Here are five rims that are functional, handsome and reasonably affordable. Yup, these are our five favorite wheels for Jeeps.
Rugged Ridge XHD
We love the look of this seven-spoke wheel—it looks great with all sizes of tires, and Rugged Ridge offers a wide selection of colors and trim. The XHD is designed to fit the current-generation Wrangler JK (2007-2016) and is available in sizes 17×9, 18×9 and 20×9.

Cragar Series 342
We’re suckers for the old-school look, and we love this “D-window” wheel from Cragar—it recalls a style popular on Jeeps of the 1970s and ’80s, with the modern twist of gloss black paint and red-and-blue pinstripes. The 342 is a steel wheel, so when you compare its cost to other wheels on this list, it’s … a steal!

Sometimes it’s hard to top what the factory has done, and we really like this 17” wheel designed for the Wrangler JK Rubicon. Mopar offers it in a variety of colors and finishes; we’re partial to the black-and-silver combo shown here.

Pro Comp Series 31
We’re not sure what it is about this eight-spoke wheel; we’ve seen others that look similar, but the Pro Comp 31 looks better than most when hung onto the axles of a Jeep, and it’s reasonably priced. As with other wheels on this list, you have your pick of colors, but we think flat black looks best on a Wrangler—though the chrome version looks pretty good as well.

Black Rock Series 997
Another victory for steelies: The Black Rock 997 captures the look found in many alloy rims, but its steel construction gives it a functional, ready-to-work look, broadcasting to the world that this is a real off-roader and not just a brodozer. And the low price certainly doesn’t lessen its appeal.
