New Rims from OE Wheels | 1997 Jeep Cherokee XJ

Hey Guys,
I thought I'd share a before and after photo of some new rims I got from OE Wheels for my 1997 Jeep Cherokee. They are actually replica wheels of the OEM stock rims for the Wrangler from 2002-2004. They are a big improvement from my stock steel wheels.

Also, checkout my blog detailing the restoration of my 97 Cherokee XJ.

Does anyone think the stock steel wheels looked better?

They look very nice! It's a shame that they don't carry a reproduction of the Turbine wheel found on many early XJ's.
