I'm trying decide between chrome 2013 SRT wheels and chrome 2013 Overland wheels

Which of these wheels do you think would look best on my Jeep, or do you think the stock Overland wheels I already have look best?

Here's a picture of my Jeep.
chrome SRT wheel.

Re: I'm trying decide between chrome 2013 SRT wheels and chrome 2013 Overland wheels

I'd probably stay with the stock wheels over the chrome overland wheels, or go with the SRT wheels in the black chrome finish (I think that's what it's called).

Re: I'm trying decide between chrome 2013 SRT wheels and chrome 2013 Overland wheels

I am tired of 5 spoke wheels, so the first one shown is a nicer style IMHO.

But chrome wheels on a car that isn't heavily chromed look out of place.

I actually like the 18s that are standard on the 14 Limited.

If you are sticking with 20s, stick with what you have.

Re: I'm trying decide between chrome 2013 SRT wheels and chrome 2013 Overland wheels

Not gonna lie... I'm a fan of the new chrome SRT rims, and may get some myself. If you want the chrome look I would go with the SRT rims.
Just changing out the hyper silver five spoke for the chrome five spoke may not seem like much of a change- if that's what your looking for.

Re: I'm trying decide between chrome 2013 SRT wheels and chrome 2013 Overland wheels

I've always wanted either the Overland wheels in chrome or the SRT wheels in chrome and I really like the SRT style. I could still use my current wheels in the winter. Now, these SRT chrome wheels would be 20 x 9 replicas, so I could purchase new tpms sensors and tires for them to run in Spring, Summer, and Fall. Now, what tire? The stock Goodyear Fortera HLs would fit, and I could get a new set of 4 for $508 from tire rack or see if local tire shop would match, and I have $100 rebate on Goodyears through Tread Lightly. But, I'm thinking there could be some better tires for the steet look that could still perform in rain well.

'Kinda subjective...personally, I love the SRT style wheels. The chromed Overland wheels you picture are more or less the same as what you have with extra shine...

Re: I'm trying decide between chrome 2013 SRT wheels and chrome 2013 Overland wheels

I agree...I'd probably stick with what you have. The chrome overland will look too extreme and out of place, IMO. I'm like you though as I've considered swapping out my 20s with something different just for a change, but I always end up keeping with my orig overland wheels.

I've considered going with these just for something different, but then again always end up keeping with what I have.

Re: I'm trying decide between chrome 2013 SRT wheels and chrome 2013 Overland wheels

Thanks for all of your opinions. I do really like the stock Overlands and that is obviously the cheapest wheel option for me = $0.00.

Did you see these on jeepforum someone got? I really like these too. The person who got them said these are direct from dealer from Mopar. The dealer entered a code slightly wrong and got these. The person who has them describes them as "matt dark grey (almost black) inner paint job and matt gloss finish on the outer polished aluminium section."

Re: I'm trying decide between chrome 2013 SRT wheels and chrome 2013 Overland wheels

I was going to guess these are the Durango R/T version of the 20" double spoke like the wk2 above but they appear much darker than the R/T style. The R/T are charcoal color rather than the hyper silver finish. These don't seem to match either finish.

Here's a couple of good pictures of the PVD chromed Overland wheels on a Brilliant Black Overland.
