Goodyear Duratracs is where I went. They're pinned for studs to make winter driving easier and they've gotten some good reviews.

I'll let you know how I like em once my tire guy calls me to let me know they've arrived for install.

Edit - you can save some serious coin on black rims by using spray on bedliner to paint your wheels. Looks pretty badass and only costs a few bucks

There are tons of options out there for black wheels and 35s. Most of us around here run the following:

Goodyear MTR
Goodyear Duratrac
BFG KM2
BFG All Terrain
PitBull Rocker Radials
PitBull Mad Dogs
Cooper STT
Toyo Open Country MT
Mickey Thompson MTs

There are literally tons of options. Finding stock right now can be a bear, but that should change as the weather warms up.

For wheels check out Pro Comp, KMC XD, Black Rock, ect.

I sell most tires with free shipping and have great pricing. I can also help with wheels and so forth. Depending on what you choose will decipher whether or not I can deliver it ready to bolt on.

Let us know how we can help!

Since you're in AZ I doubt you need the Duratracs...I have the Toyo OpenCountry MTs and love them.

These are my all time favorite of blacked out wheels because the unpainted outer edge gives some contrast between wheel and tire.

........My other hobbies include: Older cars and trucks; Spending money on unfinished projects, and continuing to not finish them...

Yeah paint the Rubicon wheels (or powdercoat) black, get some spacers, and again the Toyo MTs

There's a guy here in AZ who did that with stock Rubi rims and they look great. His rig is GORGEOUS, he goes by the name of JKLIMO. Depending on what size tires you go with though, you may have to get wheel spacers if you use the stock rims.
