Rim question / tinted tail light question

hey guys,

i had 2 questions for you guys if you could help me out i would appreciate it. Firstoff, i wanted to eventually get some rims for my jeep once the spring comes around. I really wanted to get the srt8 replica's but then i thought about it and realized that I drive onto the beach alot because i live on long island. So since i couldn't drive on with the srt8's im assuming, are there any other rims you guys would suggest that look nice but would be suitable for driving on the beach.

The second question i had was if any of you guys with tinted tail lights by daniel had a picture of the tail lights at night, but not when your hitting the break light.

I'd appreciate it alot if you guys could help me out, im not the most knowledgable when it comes to cars...Thanks

Re: Rim question / tinted tail light question

Pauls pic is actually good. Daniel has developed a system for the darkest lights...but they still let the proper amount of light through

Dude you know with the NYPD, it's only a matter of time before you get pulled over.

I'm going to cross my fingers when I get my LED's.

I'll be driving with the parking lights on all day. LOL

Re: Rim question / tinted tail light question

My tinted tails, although not by Daniel, look black when jeep isnt on, but still shine great at night, I'll snap a pic tonight, I would think any rims you put on the jeep will be perfectly fine on sand, some tires would def. be better than others for this tho

Re: Rim question / tinted tail light question

Thanks so much guys, you are really helping me out a lot. I'm just contemplating spending the money on the tinted tails with all the talk everyone has been having with the warping, almost sounds like its not even worth it even though i know it would look sweet on my black jeep.

I just assumed I wouldn't be able to drive on the beach with the srt8 replicas, you guys pretty sure about me being able to? Like I said earlier i don't know much about cars but i thought it was always a given to not drive on the beach (or offroad) with most types of rims. But if I'm able to drive onto the beach with them then I would be psyched, and my tax check that i just got deposited will probably go right towards that haha.

Re: Rim question / tinted tail light question

I think as long as ou are reasonable....you can drive on the beach. Watch the deep stuff though....LOL. Even a rig built for sand duning will get stuck
