Washed the Jeeps.

My wife and I just washed our Jeeps. This is the first time mine has been washed in over a year.

Mine is the green one.

My wife wants to get rid of her wheels and tires soon. We know they look really bad.

Enjoy.

Nice, the wheels look fine just lose the whitewalls. Why the only wash in over a year?

I only washed it once mainly because I am lazy. It is parked outside and I usually just let the rain clean off the dirt.

My advice: get rid of the whitewalls and paint the wheels black. Match it with some white lettered tires and it'll look great.

haha i NEVER wash mine ( unless i need to work on it and dont want mud falling on my face ) but the main reason is my paints so scratched from trails and brush rubbing against it, you cant see all that under the mud haha

but yeah your wifes jeep is.. interesting looking, but yeah i agree loose the white walls and paint the wheels black, AND loose the Graphics

I like the stock wheels on the wife's. They are retro! It's just those whitewalls. And what's up with those graphics? Speaking of whitewalls, who actually buys new tires and has them mounted with whitewall out? Does anyone think they look good? You need to find the previous owner and give him a good beating!!

Edit: Paint your wife's flares stat!!

haha... i was going to say the same. the wheels aren't so bad, its just the tires. if they have good tread left, just take it somewhere and have the whitewalls mounted faced in. and peel off that graphic if you can
