I am trying to figure out what I want to do about new rims. My 02 liberty has rims that are pretty terrible. The local tire dealer says that my rims are so pitted that they will not hold pressure (went from 32lb to 25lb in four days). Is this the reason. I tried slime in the tires and whatnot, but nothing worked.
I would like to see some pics of rims on different libertys. I dont have a lift now, but I plan to get one in the near future.
If I ever get a chance I wanna grab those same rubi rims (can't tell but are those the ones that look to have less backspacing, I have seen two types i think and I want the look of less backspacing whether they have it or not) and powder coat them black.

I worked for a tire shop in the Chicagoland area and all the rims were pitted, bubbled, and rusted due to the freeze/thaw cycle the midwest goes through. The road salt, snow, and then salty water just rip everything up. I don't miss that now that I'm in Phoenix.
I think those are the factory "Mechanica" rims, 16 x 7 with 6" back spacing. Cleaned up they are OK rims, put a good coat of clear on them to help protect from the salt. If they are already pitted out badly - (there was just a post here recently where the owner was having problems with them holding air) then yah, change em out. If they are good - save for a lift and skids.
