shopping for 22x9 & 22x10 wheels....advice needed

So, I'm in need of some new sporty and aggressive looking wheels to match my Jeeps new demeanor. I found a couple that I like and I was going to keep it under cover until I got them......but I decided that I should get some opinions first.

I have my favorite but want to see what everyone else likes.
mesh or split 5 spoke

This is tough.

I love a good mesh wheel, but I'm not too crazy about that choice. Fewer spokes would be better. Then again, the split-five is a bit too reminiscent of the WK1 SRT8 wheel (which is played-out, imho).

Split-five is sportier, Mesh is more luxurious....




Split-five, by a whisker.

That's my exact thoughts! I like both of these because I can get them in the staggered fitment that I so badly want.....and with in my budget......well ok, just a touch over my budget.

Looks like the split 5-spoke is running away with it. I need to put away a little more cash and then I'll be placing an order.....I think. I always get so wishy-washy when it comes to buying wheels.
