Pics of your CJ wheels

I'm looking to buy some new or used wheels, for my CJ. After searching all of the parts distributors, I've been left un-impressed. The choices I find are either really cheap looking and plain, or really expensive and look like something that belongs on a Honda with a fart can. What gives?

I like the factory wagon wheels.

I share your un-impressiveness. Unfortunately 5 x 5.5" wheels with a 4.128" dia bore (center hole) are not used by many new vehicles (limited market). So I think that's why the selection is limited. I've been searching for old school slotted mags (Arneson, Western etc) for a while. They're out there but expensive ($325 each).

60's to 70's Ford steelies are always nice. That's what I've got.

Here is what I am rolling on:
American Racing Atlas 15x8.
Super swamper LTB 34/10.5/15
I have Centramatic wheel balancers behind them

I agree it is hard to find a good 15" wheel anymore. I really also want a set of slots but I have not found a good used set yet.

I also have to go with the factory wagon wheels or the MT classic II's. I have some aluminums with kidney shaped openings currently but I am looking for a change.

I would really like to find the original Renegade wheels for my '76 but I may end up using wheels off the limited in the second photo.

*The picture of the Limited is not mine but it was warmer to steal one from the internet than to go out to the garage and take one.

We used to call them Centerlines.

Here's a link for the Jegs ones.

Right now I have The limited wheels like the ones in my_304_cj7's pic. I like them but wish they were wider. I'm looking for a
10". I was going to talk to the guy that does my welding to see if he'd cut them and weld in a 2" strip. My brother in law welded up a set to run on his tractor puller.

IIRC the slotted mags that were an option on late 70's (?) CJ's were 15 x 7's. I'd be a little leery about welding widening spacers in a vehicle that goes on the road. Also it seems that would really mess up the back spacing.

Whoa. I think I like the American racing Outlaw I's by a factor of about 316.99/101.99 = 3.108 times.

Thanks for rubbing it in . I was quoted $325 per from here http://www.akhwheels.com/pages/showWheel.php?pk=602 . For the price difference, I could drive up to Jersey and back and still be way ahead. Can't seem to find them locally, but still looking.

Ive got a set of 15x10 super deep firestones in my boggers on the rears of mine and my buddys jeep, paid a 100 for them. One day Ill blast em and powder coat them but they are a great wheel. I believe they put these out there as an option right before the wide track axles came out. To try and get the jeeps wider and not roll over as often. The only good pic I have of em was when they were on a bronco I used to have.

I love the Centerline Hellcats, but finding a set is next to impossible. On my rig I went with the American Racing series 23. They look nice and are are priced well.
If I could find a set of original chrome wagon wheels in top notch condition, I would dump the AR 23's. not that there's anything wrong with them, I just want the stock look.
