Help with my TJ

Recently have been doing a lot of work to my 2000 TJ sport. Has 2.5" lift, 33s wheel spacers, and totally blacked out. In the market for some rims, and can't decide between black or chrome rims... Also, looking for any cheap modifications that look cool, trying to make it a head turner. One more thing, my picture won't attach to this post.. whats the easiest way to make the file size under the limit..?

Black, chrome isn't an option! I have to resize my pictures then post them. Kinda a pain but it works.

I like the black also, but don't think that will make it a "head turner". If ya want a head turner, maybe you need some machined aluminum wheels with gloss black painted inlays/accents. I haven't checked for our jeep wheel sizes, but I've seen some really cool looking custom wheels in aluminum/gloss black.

My buddy has some of those in 22" on his f150, nice, but they are proud of them.

Can't help you with head turning wheels, everyone's opinion is subjective and my tastes are for simple functional wheels. I have satin aluminum wheels and I love them but they are pretty plain. I have seen some hideous wheels on jeeps lately so my tastes must be outdated. As far as posting photo's, post your photos to a photo hosting site such as photobucket then you simply post the image link from photobucket in your post here and the picture will show up.

PS. just a heads up, since this is a Tech forum, when you post up "help with my TJ" most are probably thinking you need help with a technical issue like engine nock, death wobble, what sized shocks, etc. Not sure choosing wheels based on looks qualifies as Tech. I don't really care, but there are those that do.

Does this help? My wheels have rock rash really bad so I stripped one to see what it'd look like. The first one I stripped looked good but the second had deep machining marks that would have wore me out buffing them. I ended up repainting the wheel.
