My Moabs are powdercoated. I think they look pretty good.

I just bought new wheels to get away from my moabs. Better back spacing and 15" wheels have better options for tires.

TJ MOABs trump all IMO. Black steelies do look good but nothing looks better than TJ MOABs! Powdercoat, plastidip, whatever the MOABs if you want. And if you want, I'll trade you my steelies for those MOAB's!

MOABs are so great until you go to buy tires. The back spacing is in that strange middle point that you need a narrow width tire or wheel spacers. Neither of which interest me. I didn't go to black steelies, but I moved on to 15" with 3.75 back space.

Moabs look good. I like them. But like every other stock wheel put on a jeep in the last 30 years the front-wheel-drive-ish back spacing on them sucks if you actually 'wheel your jeep. The "face" of the rim being so close to the outer edge means they get scraped on everything. Using spacers does not protect the rim at all. I run 16" stock steelies and I painted them satin black so that I can re-paint them after I scrape the poo out of them on every wheeling trip.

I have gone thru some wheels in pursuit of the "best look" for the jeep... From rusty stock steel wheels, to something like ecco's, to gamblers, to mickey thompson black soft 8's, to tj 16"
moabs... I like the moabs, i dont think they are the end-all, though, but will probably keep them. I think i would like to try a black wheel with a silver or alloy rim combination. Also one other random thought is maybe dark jeeps look better with light wheels and vice versa. Here is a recent pic:

Black on one side, aluminum on the other. Get in on whatever side you're feelin' it on that day.

My XJ is going to be completely blacked out when done (black paint, 18% tint, smoked lights) but I bought aluminum wheels (with black powdercoat accents). To me it just looks better.
