Alright, Opinions on these USW 22" Wheels on my jeep

Well I've loved these wheels since I first saw them..

Never expected I would have the opportunity to own these one-of-a-kind wheels. Wrapped in VREDS!

They are now up for sale and I am considering buying them, just to make my jeep a little bit more unique.

Thing is, they are EXPENSIVE. My plans were to go forged 6.1, cam, etc etc, but I a always nervous doing the "big" stuff to the engine because I cannot afford for it to break and all the hours down at this moment.

I would be keeping my current set up for the track and most of the year. Only takes 10 minutes to switch the set in my garage..

Here are the 2 photos I have photo shopped. (one with help from a member on here)

Opinions?!

Also, if I went this route, I would probably vinyl my roof black and possibly my pillars.

These wheels do look smaller on my jeep.

Here they are on the original Jeep: (The lip and center cap on these pictures are red, but they are now black)

I really wish the guy was closer to actually install them on my jeep before I made the purchase.

I hear you. Nothing will ever beat the stock wheels, especially black chrome.

I just think one more thing to my exterior to make it "different" would be cool. And I miss my HRE's that I had on my mustang..

Agreed. I never really knew of USW until those. They are at least $6k new, if not more. + the tires.

Yes, his current price is $4k plus shipping, but I was offered them a nice amount less; which is the reason I am really considering them.

That was my first question, was the color red. He said they are Candy Apple Red, so of course it won't be a perfect match.
Also, they were just re-done in black and the red for sema, so they are flawless of course. Which is something I wouldn't want to mess with and trying to make the red match. I'm just curious how it would look in person being 2 different reds. (For example, I dislike the OEMred brembo's on the redrock)

Re: Alright, Opinions on these USW 22" Wheels on my jeep

understood about the price but only get them if you really like them. otherwise its the IDSCOUNTED PRICE NOW and 6K later LOLOLOLOL

i just like some of their other designs much better on a jeep. that center makes no sense on a jeep TO ME. I like their 5 spokes.....they start at about 4200 and go up from there based on finishes. then shipping, tpms, tires, mouunt balance, pictures .....

I do like them a lot, but I like the pictures I see. I want to see them rolling and all.

The price is playing a factor on it, because I know how much new rims cost. (If I don't buy these, I will not go aftermarket--at least USW)

These will basically be ready to mount. Will re-balance.

He offered them w/o tires, but then I have to buy new tires, pay to install them, mount/balance.

I've got time to consider.
