wheels for 08

Will be getting new wheels for my 08 JK this summer. Red rock pearl coat with only limited aesthetic mods. Not a big fan of chrome and shine, so am leaning toward black powder coat. Any suggestions would be appreciated

I agree with Rockrash... I like the Pro-Comp wheels with the polished lip. I've seen some JK's with solid black wheels and with certain colors I'm not a big fan. The polished lip gives the wheel a little standout. With my Flame Red JK I'm thinking of going with a set of Ballistic Offroad with a splash of color.

I just put a set of Eagle 185's on my 08' but I had looked at the Pro Comps also and if I remember right, they were right about the same, somewhere in the 160 - 170 range.
