Early TJ Rims

Does anyone know the name of the wheels that came on the early TJs? I know they came on the 97s, but I don't know how many years they were OEM. I would like a set of them, but when I call around to look for them I don't have a name that corresponds to that style.

Gamblers came on 97's 98's and early 99's.



They also had Grizzly's in 97 and 98.



The wheels posted above are Canyons.

I thought Gamblers were only available on 97 TJs?

All 98+ models I've seen with the 30" tire package always have Canyons.

Thanks to all. After veiwing your posts, I am looking for the Gamblers, and a set of 5 if anyone has any. I have a set of Canyons on my 05 that I'd be willing to trade.

what are the "ugly" rims that are five spoked, going inward, with a black center cap that says jeep on it (sorry if i'm not describing them very well).
I thought those were the rims that came stock on my 97, no? I bought it used, they actually came with the aluminum yj rims on, and those ugly ones as well for a spare set

So these stock rims I have on my heep are called ECCOs?



I always wondered what they were called. And TBH, they are actually growing on me. I kinda like them now.

I'm gonna spray some graphite Duplicolor wheel paint on them once the weather warms up. They are a bit light coloured for me, but I don't want to go dark black.
