But isn't that what he asked by creating this thread. So far, the opinions have been helpful in my mind.

Re: 2011 with new tires

How is the ride now compared to stock? I think it looks pretty cool.

Re: 2011 with new tires

if honda ever comes out with a CRV that looks like a jeep I'm selling mine asap. Sorry, not a fan.

His jeep, imo, looks more like an acura mdx or an audi q7 that was built to go offroad.

It's a classic rugged look for a jeep, I cant knock it. It looks a little like a wrangler on the bottom part and a GC on the top part, if that makes sense....

Overall, its a good look, and in no way does it resemble a CRV, IMO, but a lift might not hurt.

Re: 2011 with new tires

If I can't find decent black rims that I like that will fit, I'll probably be doing something very similar...looks awesome!

Re: 2011 with new tires

I think it looks beefy! I think I like the idea of matte-black wheels, it would def match the un-painted trim better...but dude overall big improvement IMO!

Re: 2011 with new tires

Looks great. I work at a tire shop and if you want the weights inside just request sticky weights instead of bead weights on the out side.

Re: 2011 with new tires

What balances the best, sticky weights or bead weights.
