Which one look better on WK

Hi, at present moment I got these and rubber is in a really bad shape.
Now I am looking around to get a second set and I found 2 sets for a ok-ish price.
First choice are Sahara (18") :



Second Choice are these (17") :



Which ones look better on WK ?


Since diameter of both is 32" (compared to OEM 28" of mine) and my WK is not lifted I believe I will have major problems fitting in. I see I will have to cut damn bolt and do a pinch weld mod.
Since the only thing I have done so far on cars was changing wheels, I am kinda scared but you have to grow up at one point, don't you ?

Another question I have is if anyone know of any 16" that can fit on these jeeps ?
I got this set and it cant fit so I am back to shopping.

Option 1 Sahara gets my vote.

I dont like the sahara rims because they are 18's... tires are more expensive. Not to mention the moabs look better IMO. This coming from a COMPLETELY unbiased fellow WK owner

Re: Which one look better on WK

Would anyone be able to confirm that I wouldn't have any rubbing after bolt/pinch weld mods and being unlifted.
I found Sahara set with absolutely brand new tires which could serve me for 2-3 seasons but before I pull the plug I would like to know if it will work.
The set on my first picture has a really bad tires so in essence I would only buy rims and then I would have to find tires for it.

So what everyone says ?

Re: Which one look better on WK

i'd go with the second set and just get tires that will fit better. you will run into too many rubbing issues otherwise. one thing you should know is...youll need minimum .25" spacers for the moabs, not sure about the saharas

I got the second set, but from another guy...$450 for 5.
Pretty happy with the price. Now I have to order spacers and see what will happen when I mount them. Few guys on this subforum say there is no problems with rubbing whatsoever when mounted, and don't require any of the hacks. We will see I guess.

He already bought them, guys.

But no, you don't Need spacers with Saharas unless your tires are rubbing.
