Rims

Does anyone have a recommendation on new rims? I currently have the stock 17 inch rims on my 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that I am looking to replace.

Well you need to feed us a little more info. Are you looking for black rims, polished, mix etc. What are you planning on doing with your jeep?

This will help you get a more focused response =)

Check out this: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f96/j...stions-326818/
Look at "igofshn's" specs on wheels and tires.

And no offense to the OP, but why does it bug me when people say "rims" instead of "wheels"?
Is it a geographical thing like Coke and Soda?

How dare you call Pop by those heathen names!!

But yes its a regional thing I guess but by what car scene you are in. Before I came to the way of Jeeps it was Rims Tires and when you put them together they were a Wheel.

I am looking at getting black rims too and some AT tires. I have been taking pictures of various rims as I see them on truck and Jeeps. Ill keep looking ofr a while But I am thinking all black not chrome at all on them. I may for the short term paint my factory 16" rims black to see if I like it.

Couldn't find a black wheel super thread here but if you google "black jk wheel" you will find at least a few on other forums that already have a long list with pic/name of wheel.

That is probably your fastest bet to get the info.

Good luck!

I went with MB72s. I wanted a simple inexpensive wheel and would have gone steel but my tires are already heavy as hell. We have simple Black Rocks on the TJ, also not expensive and they have taken some god shots with no issues.

You have to have spokes in order to have rims. Think dirt bike wheels. OP is looking for wheels.

Engines burn fuel. Motors run off of electricity.

If it has a box, follower, and spring, it's a magazine. A clip is a piece of bent metal.

Got milk should be: Have milk?

Ultra Maverick is a good looking wheel. Good price, but unfortunately, like so many other things, are chi-com.

Does an 8 spoke ProComp classify as a rim then. What about a wagon wheel, JK LOL .

Back in the day we put chrome rims on our cars and they were not referred to as wheels until tires were mounted on them. Just older terminology I guess.

The outboard motor on my neighbor's boat burns fuel.

Most oil cans/bottles are labeled motor oil. A few are labeled engine oil.

This is what I was thinking -- not wheels until you put tires on them.

To the OP: What kind of price range are you looking at and are you going to do much off roading? There's inexpensive like the MB 72 and MB TKO (I have the TKO). Mid range I'd say would be the MT Sidebiter. Expensive would be AEV. Expensive for a rim for wheeling would be a beadlock.

Just depends on your budget and what you want to do with it.
