Dear Fellow, please give some opinion of these JEEP wheels

Hi everyone,

I am from Kahn Design - a UK car restyling house. We have a few wheels for Jeep Wrangler, just wonder what the US market think of them. They are very popular in the UK. Any suggesions will be much appreciated.

I like them. Why don't you do a test market somewhere in the US and see what the response is

I like the first on the Grand Cherokee. I like the black on the wrangler. I don't like the last one at all.

Also feature them on real AT or MT tires, all your examples have slicks which may appeal to the average joe looking for a sporty street look. The typical person on this forum runs more sidewall and bigger tires for a a few reasons: protects wheels, lower psi on the trail (8-16psi) = more traction due to larger contact patch and letting the tire conform to the logs/rocks/etc, and to a lesser point it softens the ride.

Do you have any pictures of those wheels with big AT/MT (35-40 or higher) tires? In general expect someone to run 15-17 inch wheels on a tire diameter that is => twice the wheel diameter. This would probably apply to the 4x4 enthusiasts in Australia too.

I like the black version better than the silver.

In the US I think they would be popular with Jeepers who don't get onto a trail much... Mall Cruisers and Boulevard Bombs.

to be honest they would be better suited for a Grand Cherokee that is a street queen . I always run Steel wheels on vehicles I take offroad since they get rock rash and bent

We need to find some vender who are willing to be our partner to promote these wheels first. If you have any recommendations, please kindly let me know. Thanks

We would also think of doing adverts in the US, any suggestions?

City Jeeps I guess. Hehe, it is very similar in the UK. People who like driving in the city usually buy this car, also called "Chelsea Truck Company".

I like the first set on the Grand a lot. I'd consider a set in brushed or satin aluminum on my Sierra as well if they were 17" or 18" wheels.

For a Jeep, none.
For anything but a Jeep, I kinda like the very last wheel on the bottom.
