What's wrong with black rims? Black rims on black Jeeps look really good in my opinion.

Why 17" wheels though? To mount under the tires you already have?

I ask just because 15" wheels have a cheaper selection of tires to go with and if you get new rims, might as well get new tires? ....maybe a lift kit too? A new bumper too to go with? Or new lights...? :thumb:

Well I told one of my other buddies who has a jeep that I wanted to get a new set of rims and he gave me crap about how I'm defeating the purpose of a Rubicon. Better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it is what I say and I called him a hater. He drives a 94.

His buddy is giving him crap about wanting to take off the Rubi wheels. I say who cares. If you want new rims, go for it! I'm not that fond of the stock wheels either, no matter what model Jeep it is. I think your buddy is just jealous. lol!

Right...but the OP has a TJ.

In the JK world, 17" black rims are pretty common....and even standard on some JK's. (Moab, Arctic, 10A).

Well I told him I wanted to get a new set of rims. He's a against it cause I'm "defeating" the purpose of a jeep and not utilizing it. I told him to stop hating on a man that simply loves his toys and has the money to blow away lol

Love my black 17" rims. I had the stock Sahara 18" rims and knew when I purchased it that I wanted simple black wheels.

Your buddies argument does not make sense...but I think we are missing part of his argument or something.

All JK Sport S's and Rubi's come with 17" rims...so the rim size can't be his issue.
And blacks rims are so common on JK's, you would think that is IS stock.

Is he just giving you are hard time about how YOU use YOUR Rubicon? If so...screw him. But an argument about black 17" wheels making a JK Rubi less of a Rubi is non sequitur.

I'd understand his point if you were going to something like 24's and low profile street tires, but just changing up your wheels is fine. It's your jeep, do what you want with it.

Unless you are screwing him, or he is paying, what does his opinionated what YOU do with YOUR MONEY.
