Chrome people only

I photoshopped Brembo calipers and two types of chrome wheels on my 2012 Overland. The second pic is not perfect so please take that under consideration. Which one do you like best?

Re: Chrome people only

They both look good. My preference would probably be for the ones on the left as they have a little more mass and that's more in proportion to the size of the vehicle.

But... this is your vehicle, what is your preference?

Re: Chrome people only

The ones on the right are more of the SRT version and have more angles for more sparkle. I can't decide that's why I'm asking for opinions.lol

They both can be found on the SRT model. The one on the left is a Goliath wheel from a WK2 and the one on the right is from a WK1.
From your post I think it's fairly obvious you like the ones on the right better. So go place your order.

Re: Chrome people only

Of those two, I like the one on the left. But, I would probably chose a chromed Overland or Spider Monkey over either.

Spider Monkey look like to much work to clean and the other is just what I have except painted.

Re: Chrome people only

Yeah, but there's a striking difference in that Overland OEM wheel painted vs chromed.

I particularly like it black chromed... but again, that's me.

Re: Chrome people only

My son just posted this video on FB...I have decided on these wheels... Look at the 3:20 and 5 minute mark on the vid. That's the sparkle I"m talking about... Thanks for you feedback but I have to go with my own gut...
