Awfully nice rims for a jeep! Make sure you don't bang them all up. Nevertheless I kind of lean toward the last, the Helo Series HE834 Wheel

You know the last one won't fit without spacers, right? The middle one is the only one with decent backspace for a TJ.... The Chrome ones have more BS than stock, so you'll eat up tires unless you adjust the steering stops and even then, I'm not sure the rears won't rub on the spring perches....

Actually, he did ask for everyone's opinion and what they recommend, so XJ wasn't out of line with voicing his opinion. If he likes any of the three that he posted, then good for him as it is his Jeep but I have to agree with XJ in that I can't recommend any of them. I think that they would all look like *** on any off-road vehicle.

Hey guys.
Thanks for all your opinions and they all are appreciated. I dont really do alot of rock crawling. I use my jeep more as a work vehicle and just trips around town and to work than an off roader. I do do some off roading but im sure its not like what everyone else is doing. I am really new to the whole jeep thing so Im not really sure what will and will not fit my jeep. I was just goin by what 4wheelparts said would fit my jeep and these are the 3 that I liked the best. I also like the Xd series in the black magic as well. Here is the link to it as well.
XD Series XD795 Hoss Wheel - Black Magic-RH3
I was wanting to do something different than most jeeps you see. Like going for a different wheel and size than you normally see on a jeep like 16s,17s or even 18s. I was also going to go with the Goodyear wrangler mtr with kevlar in 32s. I am gonna add a 2" bb when i order which ever set of rims I pick.
Thanks again for all your feedback and keep them coming as I still havent made up my mind yet. Way to many options out there to choose from.
