Mopar 18's - Mount or Sell?

Picked up a good deal on a set of Goodyear Duratracs in stock 18" size - and they came with a set of the 18" Mopar wheels.

Was originally thinking of picking up a set of spider monkey reps, but what does everyone think - run the Mopars for a stock option that's a bit unique, or take a chance on some reps?

Any market for the Mopars?

If the choice was between Mopar or Spider Monkey in 18" I'd stick with the Mopar's.

Thanks for the pic - I think I'm leaning towards mounting them and assess the look - unless there was a market for the rims

I say put them on, far better looking than the spider monkey.

My 13 has had the Duratracs and Mopar 18's for years now and I have no complaints. Plenty of compliments and they go everywhere and do everything I ask of them.

They're definitely louder than the stock Forteras or any road tire, but aren't too bad - a little noise is the price you pay for an aggressive tread.

It's not oppressive by any means - definitely not as bad as my friend's Nitto's on his Wrangler - I don't even have to turn up the radio.
