It depends on the color of the Jeep. Some would look good, some like cr@p. I would not arbitrarily rule it out because other Jeep owners don't like the concept. It is your Jeep, you decide. What color IS your Jeep? Maybe then we can spend some actual thought time and reply with an intelligent answer based on what you have.

I've been thinking about doing this too, but my rubicon is black.

So maybe I should have spent more than 60 seconds in photoshop but you get the idea.

From This

Might be better if the inside part of the rims are black and the flat lip is also green

I would like the "Beadock" rims painted the same color, not all the wheels-

My Jeep's wheels are a darker shade of the body color but close to the same concept.

I really like the new Rubi wheels. I do like the photoShop version you did too.

I think it looks good if you stick to the basic colors. I dont think the gecko green would look good

this thread got me thinking that the black rubicon wheels on the 10A would look better on my black '13 UR than the gray color that I got from the factory. same goes for my wheels on an anvil 10A I would guess.

maybe we need to start a thread for 10A guys who want to trade their wheels / tires for another factory set.


the new rubicon / 10A wheels are starting to grow on me. I think I will keep mine at least until the tires need to be replaced - which at this rate will be 2020.
