anyone out there have or know where i could buy some cheap 15 inch black off road wheels? I dont like the way my stock 5 spokes look on there, i think theyll look even uglier with beefy tires and since im buying new tires i figured why not get the whole deal.

I've seen most places sell the steelies for anywhere from 40-50 bucks. I didn't like those 5 spokes at first but they are starting to grow on me a bit. I'm thinking about painting them black though. I just wish they had more back spacing.

Here's what my jeep looks like with 31 mud tires.

is your jeep green? with the gold trim. or is it a different color?

my grand isn't a limited but having a dad that works at the dealership is pretty sweet, get all kinds of cool stuff, like the wheels and the trac lok limited slip for the rear
