For the life of me I can't choose between these two wheels. I like the pro comps on the left because I like how the white outline defines the wheel. I like the TM wheels on the right because they look a bit more sunken in because the spokes start at the outer lip, but I worry it might just be too much black and the wheel/tire will look too homogeneous. I'm going to throw some 33" Crosswind M/T (285/70r17) tires on them, so fairly aggressive tread. Both tires are 17", 4.75BS and -6mm offset; so same specs. What are yalls thoughts? I've got a silver JKU

Not a big fan of the spoke wheels. Prolly my favorite right now is black rhino arsenals and their armory collection. Wheel decisions are based soley on your heritage and the neighborhood influences you have had growing up. Sort of like the type of beer or wine you like.

I found some black rhinos (spoked though) I like, but I didn't want to go with 18" wheels because of limited and costlier tires.

I like the all black. A machined lip reminds me of an old white wall tire, but it is totally your choice. There are obviously machined lip fans or they wouldn't make them.

Good luck with your decision.

You guys don't know how lucky you are to even have a choice. The YJ guys don't get to choose because nobody makes a decent 15" wheel. All of it is crapolla.

Does your jeep have black accents? All black will make them pop.

Silver paint, black accents...no true colors just white, blacks, grays, chrome (only on stock headlights prolly go black in future), amber lenses (prolly go clear or smoke in future) etc.

Did they use a different bolt pattern on the YJ?

Its the 4.5 x 5 but the issue is that all the good looking wheels are manufactured in 17". Trying to put 17s on a delicate little YJ without serious expensive mods on a monumental scale is not a great idea. Sure there are adapters and spacers and such that could get you a 17 bolted on and down the road but its not going to end well.

I agree completely - not a fan of spacers and adapters either.

Are you going to wheel with these? If so, it's safest to assume you'll get some rock rash on the rims. Hopefully you won't but, if you do, it might be nice to be able to repaint.

Use to like all black but now I feel it’s to much black. I have moved to black and graphite.
