Should I change wheels?

Deciding whether or not to update these wheels or have them polished. They're American Racing AR136s. Total '90s.

Other than being a bit dated i see no reason to. Although some rims never go out of style. Up here in the north east you have to clear coat aluminum rims or they will look like garbage after years of salt and road grime. You don't have that issue in Fla. Whatever you don't ruin them by painting them absolutely hideous BLACK! Never understand why people do it!

Who cares what anyone else thinks.
Do YOU like the wheels?
If yes, keep them.
If no, replace them.
Easy enough.

I don't like them but that is just me.
As you and V8GCZJ pointed out they are a bit dated.
Plus I look at those and think Ford. Don't really know why.
Again that is just me. And my opinion does not matter.
But they are kinda period correct for the Jeep.
And that is one thing I can get behind.

Probably because they look a lot like 90s era Ford Ranger rims...

I also like them. I think they would look great polished. Something different few others have.

I’m not a fan, but that’s just me. I actually like at least one or 2 of the OEM Jeep wheels that come with the different generations.

Although they fit the Ranger, those are mid 90’s Mustang GT wheels. Still Ford

yes, they are a 90's style rim but they look good on your jeep, after all the jeep is from that era so why not keep them, they appear to be in good shape.
