Black wheels?

So now that Mamba MR1's are discontinued, anybody have some recommendations for black wheels? I was thinking I might just end up buying some Moab's off of craigslist and getting them powder coated. But I'd rather buy some wheels that are already finished black. I really liked the Mamba styling and especially the backspacing they offered. I'd like my wheels to stick out a little further without running a spacer setup.

Here's a picture of the Mamba's for those not familiar:

Re: Black wheels?

Anybody have the part number for the MOAB wheels with the deeper backspacing I'm looking for? There's a whole bunch online and I can't choose between them all.

EDIT: Looking at THESE: http://www.fortec4x4.com/Mopar-1AH78...l?&cat=10&js=n

Re: Black wheels?

Sorry, I dont have that part number for ya, but just wanted to chime in... if I had to go with an aftermarket.. I would be inclined to choose the XD Cranks. Take a peek at them, I like the look, maybe you will too.. Also, I've only ever seen one person running them on a WK.. they looked real good with a more agressive tire like a nitto mud grappler or a duratrac.

good luck

Same boat. Been looking at a few options myself.

Here are the XDs referenced:
Truck Parts & Jeep Parts - Lift Kits, Winches, Tonneau Covers, Tires, Wheels, Bumpers, Performance

I've been hunting to find some closeout Moabs myself, but may have to settle for these: Sport edition TX5 at tire rack.
