TJ with MT classic lock wheels with black lock rings

Thinking about this set up and was wondering how it would look.

I don't know if it helps, but I found this picture in a local craigslist ad. I was able to get into the sellers photo bucket account and saw that he had them mounted on a Ranger rather than a Jeep, so I didn't bother linking any of his pictures. This one I copied though is the best picture I have seen of black lock rings on M/T Classic Locks.

I still cant decide if I want to paint mine, and I hope that someone else has pictures of them on their Jeep.

Also not what you were looking for probably...

Found it re-posted in another thread, so the credit is not mine. I think the photo credit and the Jeep belong/belonged to TheBoogieman.

Great looking wheels. I have been thinking about painting my ring orange to match my jeep.

I rattle canned mine black & that's all I'd invest in that because those rings get chewed up easily! Here's a pic of my 16x10 mt classic locks painted black

Those look nice on your Jeep. I know the rings take a beating on the trail. How is the wheels finish holding up?

Thank you!

The wheels look not so good. The LJ was my DD up until a year ago, so it saw the salted roads here in IL. Try as I did, I couldn't keep them shiny/clean/nice looking. (I was semi-neurotic about cleaning, hosing off in winter, etc. but after about 1.5 years, I just couldn't keep up & just said F*#% it.) I still polish them every early summer & try to get back some of the "bling" factor, but it's gone. I should've clearcoated them when they were new.

Thank you for the info.
