black 15 inch rims...anyone

Hey guys, I cant decide which route to go. I am looking at either getting 15 inch cragar soft wheels with 235 75 15 Goodyear DT's or purchase 225 Goodyear Autthorities for about 200 cheaper (keeping stock rims). After that decision I am thinking 1 inch wheel spacers. I was also thinking about 245's of a lesser expensive tire using stock rims....I know its my choice, but want to know what you guys would do. I can't make up my mind, but need to stay below a grand.

Thought about that....Does it withstand elements and carwashes? If I am getting new tires would the install mess that up?

I've had it done for ab 3 weeks and it still looks good.. Everything I've heard ab changing tires is it might nick it a little but just touch it up and they should be good.. Plus is only $6 a can

What are you driving? Some would say that 15" rims won't work on a KK but if you get procomp series 51 or 52 (not sure) with 3 1/2" backspace (might be 3 3/4" bs) they fit. I haven't tried them with tires yet. 8" wide may be a problem but 7" might work. Let me know what you find out if you pursue this. I'd like to put on some 8" wide to fit the tires I want but it'll be awhile before I continue.
Also, on another note, I have my stock 225/75-16 goodyears for sale, $300.00. They're almost like new, less than 10,000 miles on them and most of them was in the snow so there wasn't much wear.

8 inch wide wheel is too wide for any tire a KJ or KK can run. Unlifted and below 4 plus inches have to still watch your backspacing
