My vote on aftermarket products is for functionality. Like a rearview mirror in a Ferrari, if it isn't useful, rip that shit out.
So, my 2˘ goes something like this...
There should never be any Chrome on any vehicle made of purpose.
Polished aluminum is acceptable, provided the item is functional and/or serves a legitimate purpose.
“Dress up” items, like “Brass knuckle” grab handles in polished Al, does not qualify as acceptable...it's not the material, it's the design - like some guido wannabe that watches reruns of The Situation with the whole ghey drama-ed cast while looking for fashion tips.
Same goes for faux beadlocks or any wheel that's more aesthetic design than engineering.
How do you tell the difference?
It takes longer to clean the wheels than it does to clean the vehicle, true beadlocks not withstanding...and it looks like you could break 'em first time out, off the beaten path.
You may never intend to be so adventurous, but wheels are serious business...particularly, if you think you'll never need to count on 'em.
I have three fire extinguishers in my house and there's a 100' garden hose that's always connected. I'm hoping I never need to use them on a fire, much like some of us hope to never hit a curb, at speed, while mall crawlin'.
2˘ comments are presented for entertainment value, or not. It's your Jeep...do it up any way you want.
