what aftermarket wheels with patriot blue?

i always thought i would have a silver TJ with black wheels now it looks like i MIGHT be getting a patriot blue one. I was wondering what aftermarket wheels looked good with that color. I really like the DC-1's. but post pics of anything.

x3 on the Soft 8's. Kind of common but not as common as the "d" windows.

Black and blue is a classic color clash. I'm sure this makes me sound metrosexual aka metro gay, but anyone who knows how to color coordinate clothing, or interior decor of a home, knows that black and blue do not go together. But most men don't have color matching skills (and shoud let women pick the colors and his clothes).

You (OP) apparently do have some color matching skills because you instinctively sensed (rightly) that black and blue is a color clash.

Your original idea of silver and black was a good one, but not blue and black.

Blue and silver looks great. I had a Patriot Blue XJ with Silver Grizzly wheels that looked fabulous. Dark blue and silver wheels go well together. Likewise polished satin aluminum looks great with blue, if clearcoated or otherwise weatherized and corrosion protected to stay nice.

High polish aluminum wheels, or chrome wheels, also look good and color coordinate with blue, if your into bling, but I personally think some satin polished aluminum or silver painted wheels look the best since they are color coordinated and have the right level of bling, but not to much.

IMO

P.S. - Sorry, but I no longer have pics of my Patriot Blue XJ and I sold it a year ago.
