It's a personal thing.I think the soft 8's and plain black wheels that MANY people get look like crap.

Personally, i like Moabs better than ANY other wheels on a TJ...stock or aftermarket

Best looking is a personal choice. Most after market wheels in 15 inch are 4-3.5 inch backspacing. You can get plain black steel wheels with 4.5. If you want more choices, than try 16 or 17 inch rims.

I gotta go with the AEV Bridger's. 16x8.5 with 4.5" BS. I don't have them anymore but an added benefit is it's a hub centric wheel which I really miss when mounting and unmounting them.

I just love the "What's the best...?" questions.

There is no such thing as a universal "best" anything. People have individual tastes. What you like others may think looks funny/stupid. Everything is a compromise. You have to throw in factors such as available funds, time, use, personal likes/dislikes, availablity of items in your area, legal considerations for you location, family, job, ...

In the long run, make a decision about what you like, and go for it. The heck with what everyone else thinks.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

Beadlock or not?

For non-beadlock, I like the Pro Comp 7028 wheels:

my opinion is that if you are gonna wheel hard or even at all, just get some black steelies... theri cheap and strong... and plus its 50 bucks to replace one if u bend it or whatever instead of 200 to replace it....
