Thanks, yea it was amazing the difference an inch made. I almost would buy some wide track axles to go with the spacers too.

It is looking pretty awesome, but the wheels are just too shiny, Id love to see it with the wheels painted black and the lock rings tan.

That looks great!!

IMO, it is the perfect blend of 'bling' and function!

Is this your DD?

I've kinda begun to like the aluminum, I'll just not polish them so they will dull out a little

Man those rims really look great I think. Maybe paint the outer ring of them black but leave the bolts as they are to kind of blend with your rocker guards and corner armor? Just for a little contrast instead of all shiny. I threw this together real quick in paint.net just to give you an idea of what they would look like. Not my best work but it convey's the general idea. When you get a chance check out my little thread if you like. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/my-1981-cj7-1263545/

That does look good but I can't bring myself to paint them yet, maybe after some rock rash I'll change my mind.

I was planning on buying the hutchison rock monster bead locks bit after seeing your pics I like the spyders way better! Don't get me wrong, freakin sweet jeep but the spyders bring it to a whole new level of dooooooooolllllllllllll.


I think it would look sweet with the "star" portion of the ring color matched..... Just my 2 cents

I looked at the rock monsters but the price scared me away and then when I seen that the spyderlocks had free shipping I was sold.
