What wheels!!

hey guys!! gettin ready to start workin on my JKU and first will be ilfted and wheels/tires...............gonna go 37 route for sure...........not sure what wheels to get as I want something that looks good but performs good too.......

thought alot about AEV savvys, too many pintlars around..........pretty convinced dont need beadlocks but not opposed...........

so far I like some of the fuel wheels and also methods............any comments, suggestions or advice is appreciated........really want something with the gunmetal grey in some of the wheel to compliment the silver paint......

anyone have experience wit these brands or anything else???

thanks for your help

These weren't black, so I took a set . . . and painted 'em. TrailReady beadlocks - look good to me, perform great for me. Made in USA.

Are you a spammer trying to establish presence, or just new and excited like a puppy with its first hard-on? I remember 13.

Either way, calm down and hold your wad until you can convey meaningful information in a grown-up format, PLEASE.

Thanks for violently regurgitating everything you've learned on the internetz in your first post, though.

Since you're looking for a gunmetal grey color, I'm using these "Anza" wheels from Fuel. They have a matte anthracite finish with a black ring. Mine have a 5 on 5 1/2 bolt pattern, for the locking hubs. They would have a smaller center bore and a center cap for a normal JK application, but I think you can get an idea of what they look like. You can also get them with a matte black center and an anthracite ring.

I have Fuel Trophys in black on my JKU. You should go with the same in gunmetal. That would look great with the silver.

If you plan to ever leave the asphalt, stay away, far away from AEV.

I like my 5 spoke Level 8 Punch wheels in gray. Not so expensive you can't change them out for something different in a couple of years if you want to.
