Are the white spokes painted black or chrome painted black?

Chrome wheels in VG-exc shape usually bring $300-600 depending on location and condition. White spokes highest I've seen is around $300 for some that were basically NOS.

Since yours are painted, I'd say you'd be lucky to get $100 and most of that would be for the center caps.

If you want to take the time to strip the paint off AND they're chrome underneath AND the chrome is in good shape, they're worth more, but the value of OEM wheels is to those who want original Jeep stuff, and black painted wheels kinda takes away the one selling point the OEM wheels have.

The wheels are not Crome. Just the center caps

So they're factory white spokes painted black? Around here you'd be lucky to get $100 for them. If the caps are in good shape your best bet is to sell the caps on ebay, and then try to get $20-25 per rim on your local craigslist. OEM chrome wheels bring $$$, white spokes in excellent condition bring a little bit, but painted white steelies, not so much. Caps on ebay will likely bring $30-150 depending on condition (I had some pretty much NOS center caps and they went for $150 on ebay, rough shape caps go for $10ish).
