White wagons on JK?

I'm selling my CJ5 to make room for a new JK. The new Jeep will be a base tank with the silver wheels. I think white wagons would be a great contrast to the green and black. Does anybody here run wagons? I checked the AR site and can't find them in 5 on 5. I'm hoping they exist somewhere.

The old steelie wagon wheels might be kinda old school cool.
Rockstar I think makes a white wheel now. A little over the top for me. But to each his own.

I've actually toyed around with the idea of getting a set of the stock 16" steel spokes and painting them white with a black pinstripe, and have the center cap chromed.

I did a mock up crappy version of a photo shopped one a while back.

I was hoping to go for the actual wagon wheel style wheels. My Jeep will be tank with black and I'd like some contrast without chrome.

I had wagon wheels on my CJ but couldn't find anything for my JKU. I went with polished Level 8 Trackers and dipped them since.

I like the old school look.

Crager nomads come in the right bolt pattern, if the 15" will clear the brakes.

Doesnt work well with the H2 - maybe the JK can pull it off better...

The wagon should, of course, be as light as possible, but strength should not be sacrificed to lightness, for on any but the regularly traveled roads, the wagon will get many a hard knock...

Crager #3428835* is about as close as I can see in a 17" to the wagon (8spoke) look...
