After many years of wanting a Wrangler - listening to my pops that 'Jeeps drive like crap, and someome will steal your radio' -- I went against him and bought a 2011 Black Wrangler Sport ... I love it .. and I think he does too!
Aaah the uninformed, I heard that exact phrase so much when I was going to turn 16 and kept hunting an inexpensive jeep. Truthfully some DID ride like crap, because people who don't know how to lift properly. I even have a tire shop nearby who no longer gets any business because he told me "thats how they drive" when they refused to balance my tires properly. At that time I had driven a jeep for 8 years, I think I know how they drive better than he did Almost 14 years later I just bought ANOTHER Wrangler, never had a radio stolen.
But as for wheels, I tend to shop for jeep parts online due to horrid selection here. Quadratec has a decent selection from Procomp, AEV, Mickey Thompson, and Blackrock. If you like a wheel that isn't in black you can always paint/bedline/plastidip it.
