Do what I did when I got tired of my aluminum wheels, I plastidipped them black. That way I can always go back to aluminum if I wanted to.

Yea had thought bout having the original wheels painted. Must admit was leaning towards black but those wheels look very nice.

This is what most black rims look like.....





..... a spare tire. Especially if it is flat black. Black is very popular but in my opinion it looks like crap.

I like black wheels...But, on a Light Khaki TJ I think aluminum wheels look awesome.

I'm looking for a really low mileage Light Khaki Rubicon with Black Interior. Those suckers are hard to find.

I found one in GA but they want 19k. :(

What's the spec of the rubicon? Mines 40k with the black interior very clean! Gave £5000 for mine. No one can afford to run them ha.

2006...it had somewhere around 50k miles I believe.

How much is L5000 in US dollars?

As far as I can tell it has a 1 inch body lift. Not sure about suspension though. This is how I bought it. It has Bilstein shocks, but I can't find any identifying markings in the springs.

The rims are Pacer 164P LT MOD 15x8's with Kumho Road Venture MT KL71 32x11.5x15 tires.

Personal preference and the color of your Jeep. I think for the khaki, silver rims would look best. Red and black go well together (I might be biased tho...;) )

I think that the bolder colors (red, yellow, orange, and some blues) look good with black rims. The more muted colors (silver, khaki, rescue or kelly green, the browns) look good with silver or chrome rims.

I tend to agree with you at the moment. Think it's just a case of fining a set over here. Would like a split rim style or beadlock.

I just Painted these.


I liked these, they were just to big with no lift, 18".
The ride at highway speeds on the 15” T/As is much better.
