thinking about painting my black crags white! what do you think?

Here's a pic of my jeep. I'm going to be adding a 1 inch BL and going to 33s. I'm tired of the black wheels...thinking of painting them white! I also rock a white hardtop. I think my complete "white out" jeep would be unique. What do you say?

That's two yes's! I saw someone posted a pic of their white jeep with white wagon wheels and it looked gnarly. Some people have told me my jeep is already too white, but I think it'd look great. Leaning towards doing it...!!!

Alright guys - what do you think of how this looks? I think I really like it!



edit: I know they aren't the same wheels I have on the jeep right now - but the set I am going to paint to go with my 33s is the style in this picture.

If you paint them white, then get a good match with the body (Stone white?). If you use a bright white the wheels will make your Jeep look dirty. I only say this because I had a bright white YJ and when I parked next to any other car that wasn't bright white, My Jeep always looked cleaner. You can see it in your photoshop, but it'll really stand out in real life.

I pictured it in my head as simply awful-looking, but after seeing it on a white jeep i really like it.

white steel spoke wheels were pretty standard on 4x4s when I was growing up, so they look "normal" to me. Black steelies just look like you can't afford decent wheels, or someone stole your hub caps.

Keep them black and turn you tires so the white lettering is out, they will look at lot better agree thats too much black but with a white letters out that will be just enough to make it look good and make it not look like it is from the 80s.

Or white wheels don't go well with a faded yellow Wrangler.
