I like the first one, but the number one thing I always look at is: can I get a lug wrench in there? I have had a number of rims that required a special thin-walled socket to change a stinkin' tire.

My Eagles are combo black/polished and have 8 spokes, very similar to XD Hoss. If I had it to do over again I'd do a 6 spoke like the 797 cuz they would be a boat load easier to clean. Looks like public opinion is leaning that way anyway, just my 2 cents since you asked

Whichever ones you pick make sure you post pics of what they look like after you do some serious rock crawling.

IMO the 797 wins hands down. Not a fan of the 10 spokes on the Hoss. Looks too "blingy" but thats just me.

I like them both, but I'd be afraid that the top one would look very different in 17" versus the (probable) 20" that is pictured there.

Those look like 18s on 37s on the black JK above, but I could be wrong.

You would be paving a new road with the first option, lots of folks have the Hoss on lots of different rides.
