ahh i thought you had them on the jeep, those wheels are nice, aluminum tho so not so strong, anyway if your lookin for wheels theres the stock wheels for grands, the cherokees have the same 5 spoke like vipers which i assume is the same as you have and they also run the 5 spoke with narrower spokes

hope that helps in your decision on what wheel to run

i guess if you dont like those types you can run the black steelies

i would definatly go after market rims if u can afford it. i personaly prefer alloys becasue light weight = better MPG and better 0-60 to beat the crap out of rice rockets.

but it definatly depends on what kind on 4 wheeln u do, if u do mud or light trails i would say alloy. if u do crazy rock crawling then i would recomend nothing other than steelies.

yea viper my jeep looks exactly like yours (white, 5.2, same wheels) and your 5 spokes actually look pretty good with those 31's on there. I dunno now, might decide to keep em (and paint em black like you said) But yesterday i seen some nice black cragars for like 35 bucks on acmejeepparts.com. Might go with those cause theyre so cheap. My question to you guys is, (Im stock height) what pattern, width, and backspacing should i get if i get the cragars?? p.s. im planning on mounting 30x 9.5 r15's on them.

stock back space will be fine, which is 5.5, but if you plan on lifting it try to get 4.5 or 4 inch backspace

the lug pattern is 5x4.5 and as for the width you can run a 12.50 wide tire on 8 inch wide wheels so if you decide to lift it and bigger tires and want to run 33x12.50 get 8 inch wide wheels, if you are sure you wont lift it then get 7 inch wide wheels with stock backspace so they dont stick out really far
