This is definitely a preference type item. Black or dark gunmetal would be my preference.

Hate the spoke design but you might like it. Wheel looks are very subjective.

I like it, myself. Looks like a better looking non-functional Pintler Beadlock. Not a fan of bright work on a Jeep, so black or dark gray is typically a better choice IMO. But like Terminator 2 said, it's subjective.

Seriously, it's you're money so buy what makes you happy. I personally hate fake beadlocks and I don't care for most shiny wheels on Jeeps.
But what I like shouldn't mean shit to you unless you were trying to please me . . . which would just be weird.

If you dig neon fuschia wheels with booger green pinstripes, rock the neon fuschia wheels with booger green pinstripes!
That being said, I would point and laugh out loud. This, however, should not bother you because I'm just some random dude with an opinion.

Here are my wheels. I love them but you might not. They are 17x9" Vtec Raptors in gloss black with machined spokes. They are on a black 2 door JK Rubicon. Edit I hate chrome but I like the combo of mirror machined aluminum and gloss black. I am 99% sure I am going to paint the chrome center caps gloss black to match the gloss black on the wheel.

Paint whatever you get the same color as your Jeep.

It's a good looking wheel option. I'd have them torn up in no time.

I think this thing is finally coming together. Still Needed: drive shafts, frame mount rails...then done son! For a while...

I really like the look you have chosen - but I too would have them tore up on the rocks here in AZ - so I'll keep hacking up my AEV Pintlers. But as it has been said - it's your jeep, your money - do what YOU like. Everyone is going to have an opinion, some that affirm your decision, some that don't.
