Best 16" wheels

What are, in your guys' opinions the best rims for the WJ. I want to get new ones but not tires, it would be just way to expensive. I was thinking about the ones of the Wranglers. Any aftermarket rims you guys recommend?

Re: Best 16" wheels

I picked these up a couple months back. Unfortunately no better pics of them on my WJ just yet.

They are 16" JK unlimited wheels.
I got a set of 5 with almost new tires for 300 on CraigsList. I really wanted the 17" moabs, but not looking to lift my jeep

Re: Best 16" wheels

I just got these wheels off a rubicon I believe they make them in 16" as well and you can find them cheap on the internet.

Re: Best 16" wheels





07-current JK Wrangler steelies

Got (5) of them pretty much free on craigs

Preped them with some 80 grit sandpaper and shot them with Rustoleum bed coating, stuff is super tough and durable.

Just added some cheap feeBay black lug nuts and looks way better...




I used nickels to cover lug holes and worked great.

I used golf tees to cover center cap holes.

I used dixie cup to cover hub center hole.

Left old valve stems in place to paint until dry to ensure good stem mounting surface.

Hope this helps anyone!

Re: Best 16" wheels

Red Solo Cup...

I love how you made those rims look. the Bed liner really looks nice. Very nice!

to add to the conversation, if you are looking for inexpensive, decent looking rims that function well, Cragar Soft 8's (either black or chrome) would be good. I like them, because of the price lol
