My rig isn't black (actually Jeep Green but might appear black in this shot) but this might give you some ideas....

Mickey Thompson classics with a black ring and the black print center cap would look good. I considered them but they are hard to keep clean.

You should join the Group Black Jeep Society and look at the gallery. You will see your vehicle with several types of different rims. Great group.

GE2's Rockstars look great, even more so in person.

But I also recommend the Pro Comps I have. Since I didn't go the for the all-blacked out look, I intentionally looked for rims with some contrast. And not too shiny either. They are never clean anyway, so no point in paying for the glossy stuff.
