Are there any non-blingy silver wheels?

Are there any good alloy wheels out there that are more of a brushed look than blingy polished or chrome? Cause the only wheels I see are black, polished, and chrome.

We have simialer wheel taste

I dont like the chrome and have always liked the brushed alum. look. A/R has only a couple that I am looking at.

The sprint looks like the old brushed alum. 5 slots of many years ago.
Its also one of the few alloy rims that come in a 15 X 8 with a 4 1/2" Backspacing
They dont make them in a 16X8 for a Jeep though (my preferred size)


Then there is the Chamber, again a nice looking brushed alloy, but alas no 16X8 (5X4.5)

Also the Outlaw 2, But it seems like they are on every Ford Exploder in my town and the last thing I want is something that reminds me of a ford on my Jeep

I like those three, especially the chamber. My favorite type are probably like the Mickey Thompson Classics, just not that finish.

you could always get some shiny T/R beadlocks, and then scratch 'em up a little bit:

rock rash gives instant credibility to shiny wheels...

I'm planning on some Staun internal beadlocks, so any old alloy wheel will work fine.
