Wj Pic request. Let me see your rims!

Hey guys. So I've been debating about what to do with my rims for awhile.
my options:

1. Paint OEM 5 star rims

2. Get some D window wheels.

If you guys could post pics of either of those with the same color WJ as mine that would be awesome. (I have the steel blue pearlcoat, AKA the lighter blue) Thanks for your help.

I painted my stock OEM rims flat black. Overall I like the way they turned out. I just used a flat black enamel paint nothing special. However I am looking into some Jegs D Window wheel myself.

I had mine powder coated black. I got sick of the stock peeling gold finish.
