Gray/charcoal rubicon wheels on black Laredo

Thinking about putting the charcoal/gray rubicon wheels on my black 2014 Laredo. Has anyone done this and does it look good. I've tried to search around to see if anyone has put these on the black GC's but can't find any.

I went back and forth, ended up finding the all black/no silver Rubicon Moab wheels on craigslist. Love the look. But I think the gray ones would look good too.

I have a thread here about it. The wheels came with 245/75x17 and fit no problem, no rubbing lock to lock. I will replace with 255/75 when these wear out, but I don't want the Mud Terrain with lots of road noise.

I elected to install the RRO 1.75 inch strut level kit for the stance, no wheel spacers needed.

I like the look of the silent armour, slightly aggressive but quiet on the road. I don't have anything to compare to at the moment.

Re: Gray/charcoal rubicon wheels on black Laredo

Gotcha. Last question, did the leveling kit affect the ride in any way? Did it affect gas mileage, etc.... I read your thread on it. Looks like you installed yourself. My Laredo is 4x4 so should a shop install?

The ride is the same, just the way I wanted! If you've done this kind of work before it shouldn't be an issue, a 2nd pair of hands would help. Otherwise take it to a shop.
