for as little as they bring IMO its best to keep them for when you get rid of the jeep/ this way you can sell the big wheels/tires and new jeep owner gets the stockers.

Mount winter tires on them.

Crestwood1001 is an unknown quantity at this point
What Rob said, and while your not using them mount winter tires on them. Just keep them semi clean during the winter, then if you go to sell it the stockers are intact.

You can look on ebay to see what individuals are getting for them. The Jeep will be easier to resale down the road if you still have the stockers.

I paid $1100 for a near new set last winter so I could mount winter tires on them. Post them on the for sale section here and you might be surprised.

Im trying to get all my rims straight. The polished summit, I know are the same style as the overland. These are the one thats have the polished/shiny face and the sides of the spokes are the flat/painted look correct?

Does anyone know what the "NEW" polished wheels with (late availability) look like for the 2012?

Re: what to do with my WK2 stock wheels & tires?

^ That is a good question. I really would prefer all chrome. I see they are on ebay from the aftermarket but the prices are quite high. On black they look sick!
