Sure, here are mine. I'm running 33" Maxxis Big Horns Mud Countries on 15" steelies.

Here's another at a different angle. I like 'em and I really like that the tires are a boatload cheaper than the 16 or 17 versions. I didn't have to do anything for them to clear the brake calipers.

I've been shopping around for wheels and Morris 4x4 center has them for a pretty good price since it's free shipping and you can use the 10% off promo code, forum9. The only catch is there's a $5 oversize freight charge per wheel but I haven't found anyone else who has a lower final price.

Another reason why I'm considering these wheels over Cragar other than the slightly lower cost is the fact it comes with the center caps for the price. Cragar makes you buy them seperately which can be a significant amount for five when you consider how cheap these wheels are in the first place.

Oops, it's free shipping for orders over $1k. Since I'm looking at tires too, I was qualifying.

'09 X Unlimited, 4WD, auto, half-doors, soft-top
RC 2.5" Series II BB, JKS Quick Discos, JKS adjustable front track bar
15x8 Unique 297 (Soft 8), Goodyear MTR/Kevlar 35x12.50R15
5.13 gears, ARB front locker, Currie front shafts
Bushwacker flat flares, Rubicon rails with steps added

I bought mine from Quadratec last spring. I bought the Black rock steely soft 8's in the matte black and got the black lugs also. I called instead of ordering online and asked if they could do anything on shipping cost for me, after about 5 mins of just BSing about random stuff with the guy, he said he would knock off the shipping completely. I was happy, saved me a nice chunk of change.

Black Rock "D" Window 16x8
They look very cool, But ride quality stinks. A 68 dollar rim with a 225 dollar tire. I will go aluminum next time, I think I got what I paid for. Just my .02
(I put a chrome Cragar cap on, do not like black center caps.)

I went with the 15s as mentioned above it saved me like 90 dollars per tire! I have Spidertrax on there but they do clear the calipers without em. (barely!)

Warning...I got 5 of the Black Rock Steelies 16 x 8 last month and all 5 were out of round. Spent countless hours at Discount Tire balancing till they figured out it was the wheels. You get what you pay for...

Sent them back and got the Pro Comp 7079's aluminum.
