pro comp 8179 vs mickey thompson black classic II

I'm trying to decide on which wheels to get for my 04 Unlimited with 2.25 bb. which ever ones i get are going to be 15x8s. Trying to choose between ProComp 8179 and Mickey Thompson black Classic II. Any help on deciding which to get would be nice.
thanks

M/Ts by far....





Then I saw the above pic. Not bad on a black jeep. Exterior color makes a big difference..

I had some centerlines in a similar style that were made about 20 years ago.
Apparently they don't make 15" wheels anymore. =[

I am leaning towards the M/Ts but they are a little pricey for a college students getting married this summer and they won't be in until the middle of february. What can anyone tell me about Black Rock Wheels. They are a little closer to my price range and I'm liking their 950s and the 942.

I got the procomp 7069 which is close to the MT black classic 2 and I think looks better than the mickey in person as well. But if its just between those 2 the mickeys i dont like the silver rings on the 8179 Id just scuff them up anyway.

Definitely the MT, the PC just has too much bling with its obviously way too fake looking beak lock ring.
