Wheels decisions decisions ???

I was wondering if anyone has pics of the American racing Chamber wheels on a JK ?? The diamond cut or machined finished which ever they are called... I have pretty much eliminated all black rims.. no offense but I ran black on black YJ for the last 5 years and want a change. And I dont really want to go polished.. But if anyone has a pic of the Pro Comp series 1028 polished I would like to see them too... And thanks in advance you might just help a fellow jeeper from goin crazy LOL

This is Cole's Raceline beadlocks.
If you're not going to run a cheap steel rim, why would you run anything else?

Only thing I don't like about those rims is the 25 lb max psi, but as there is about a two month wait for WE rims they sure do look nice, and are priced well.

Thiis is my 3rd rig with beadlocks. 2 were daily drivers over the last 7 years and around 100k of driving without issues.

The fact they state the max psi is 25.

I didn't say they were bad rims or that I wouldn't use them, I just stated that I didn't like the fact that the max psi is 25. Depending on availability I may well get some, as WE 17" beadlocks are running about two months right now.

I must have missed that. Where are you seeing this stated?

At times I have run them MUCH higher than that over the last 7 years and no issue. The ones on my 1 ton truck are currently at 60 psi to help keep from flat spotting the tires since the truck sits a lot.

I read it somewhere recently, but can't recall where. Many of the places selling these rims state that 25 psi is the max. It wouldn't stop me buying them, but it is a factor.

I have been looking all over the web and $269 is just about it.... Just adding up the diff... It will be $69 X 5 for the wheels and getting the 17in toyo"s instead of 16's is about $50 to $60 more per tire. So $55 x 5.. So A total of $620 difference. And I can even get the 16in setup even cheaper in a package deal.. But man I STILL WANT these wheels LOL Any problems at all with balancing? Also what did you do mount them up yourself then take them and get balanced ?? Thanks

I mounted them myself and then took the to big O to balance. They balanced fine, I drive them everyday, smooth as silk.
