Need help with mods to a Laredo.

Hi guys, I'm brand new here. Purchased my first Jeep in December of last year. It is by far my favorite vehicle I've ever owned. I have enjoyed it so much that I want to make a few upgrades while it is still relatively new so I can keep the excited feeling I have when I drive it for years to come. I have your basic laredo in maximum steel color. Kind of vanilla compared to what I see a lot of you guys sporting.

The first improvement I want to make is wheels. I'd like to go up from the 17 to one of the 20's. I have been looking at the Overlands in all their colors, the new SRT8's, the SRT8 Alpines, and even the old version of the SRT8. I'd like the wheels to have that fat tough look so to speak, with maybe a little bulge off the sides of the frame. I can't decide on which style I like most, which color would work best, or which theme I should be planning on. I love the blacked out look but I am concerned that to get that perfect, would be a huge investment. If I don't do that, do I do chrome, black chrome, polished or maybe the black and silver combo. I'm lost. It doesn't help that I can't find pics with my color Jeep with a lot of the rim selections. I'd love to see it with a set of the old 5 spoke SRT8 rims from the WK of 2010, but google can't even help me. I hope one of you can. Thanks.

I vote for the Viper SRT replicas factory reproductions can help you with them in several different finishes.
