I vote no, and I can't help but quote another Jeeper I once read who said "black wheels are the tramp stamps of Jeeps" in regards to how overused and cliche the look has become.

Black = No Color = Yes

I like the 'black' steel wheels BUT not in black. Pick a color to accent the wheel. like maybe, say Burgundy or pick up a color from your interior.
But I should caution you, to outstanding a color lets everyone know where you've been and what you are doin'

Black is the new chrome of wheels. I was even thinking of getting black rims for my saab wagon (its Red).

I would not go with the black steel wheels... maybe a good alloy wheel? it is just too generic.

I say no black, I purposely spent time finding good wheels that are not black and I'm glad I did. unless you like tribal tattoos and nickleback. then yes.

Those are TJ Moabs, 16" wheels.

Coming from a guy who has had steel wheels and aluminum, stick with the aluminum. If you don't like the color, paint them.
