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.

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.
