New Wheels on the DubJ

Been lurking on the forums since I got my 2004 WJ Laredo 4.0 around August last year. I've only had a few mods, and up until now nothing really special to make my first post! I picked up a 5 wheel set of 18" silver JK wheels on Craigslist for just $120. I also needed 3 tires at the time, so figured it was the perfect time to upgrade. They are in great condition with only minor scratches on two of the wheels. For the price I paid, I can't really complain. On 255/55 General Grabber UHP tires and no rubbing. I've had them on for over 500 miles now and love them! Thanks for looking.














Here are a couple pics before the wheels








And of course I can't figure out how to insert the pictures in the post... Just right click and open for now

Re: New Wheels on the DubJ

Looks good! I really like those but have rather new tires on my factory 17's so I went with Rubicons instead.

Re: New Wheels on the DubJ

I just wanted a different look from the stock 16's (and from all the other WJ's in town), and it was hard to find Jeep wheels locally. I definitely would've been happy if I had the Limited mesh 17's though! Also trying to save up for a sport bike for the spring so price was a major factor. Sadly I'll be done modding for a little bit. Thanks for the compliment!

You definitely got different looking and that is good in my book.
