I had to dig them up! And here you go:









He has the grey Moabs and used a matte black with a semi gloss clear.

For color comparison, these are my new Rubi Moabs painted with beadliner.

Yeah I dig your wheels Omelet! I actually just posted in the photoshop thread to see if someone can fab up a picture of my wk with your wheels on it. Interested to see what comes back. I just want to see what the semi black wheels look like with all white and chrome everything else. I just dont know if it will flow together smoothly.

Sweet, well hopefully someone will hook you up! I think they would look good. I have seen white Jeeps with black wheels and it is a good look. So having two tone would be sweet.

Opinions of the wheels? It's a photoshopped picture of omelets wheels on my wk, but I'm thinking of doing it. I think it looks awesome, what do you guys think?

Is that what you used was graphite? I think I'd rather go with that than a really dark flat black. This was the pic I had them use to photoshop with:

Yeah I definitely like the graphite. How'd you tape off the parts that you didn't paint? And what did you use to sand them down to prep them for painting? I've never painted anything like this before.

So I have made my decision. I'm already tired of my OME HD lift. It's too small. Most of the offroading I do is mudding, and a lot of the mud holes and trails around here are too deep for my jeep. I need more lift and bigger tires. So my next mod is basically copying Seans wk. I will upgrade to the new SL for starters. Then I will be saving to upgrade some parts to achieve his "modified SL" which yields 6+" of lift. Then I will be going with some 35's. Probably wont be happening real soon, but I imagine I will have bought the SL within the next couple of months. By the way, my OME HD will be available for cheap once this happens if anyone is interested.

That sounds like a good plan! And I haven't forgotten about the wheel, I have just been too busy. Will get the info up tonight or tomorrow at the latest.
