Help me Choose wheels! *for a white Jeep*

So I'm Not getting 33"s after all.. i'm going to get 35"s even if it takes a little longer, but I cant decide what Wheels I like for 4 doors..

So far I'm looking at AEV plinters And Beadlocks... But i'm unsure about the beadlocks, $100 extra and eh... Look about $25 better to me.

But I think Argent (non glossy) goes best whith a 4 door, Please post pics of what you think will fit a white Jeep!











Chrome is eh.

I'm not a Big fan of Black on Black since my jeep is 2 tone... But you may change my mind

Me no likey.

If you like the beadlock look, check out Incubus. These are on my Yellow 08 w 33 x12.5's but I like black wheels on white also.

Here's a couple shots of mine.

Raceline has a black beadlock that I think would look good on a white Jeep too.

I'm into simple no frills wheels.. So I purchased a set of Cragar Soft 8's and got rid of the gloss finish with a little bit of matte spray paint. I may pick up a set of ProComp 7089 in flat black one day..

You know what they say- Once you go black (steelies) you never go back.



I think about 50 bucks each from summit which has free shipping, so you get 5 wheels for the price of one fancy one. You can easily add beadlocks to them, and when you spin them on the rcoks its no big deal because they are cheap.

Bead locks have a function. If you're looking at getting them for the look factor then save your $$ and get a set of wheels that *look* like bead locks.

I like the black Soft 8's. Plain & simple, cheap too.
