Thumbs up Help! Rims and Tires!

Hey what's up I have a 06 GC v6 3.7, love that vic to death and I just want to put some new shoes on her wondering what recommendations I could get from you guys. It has become to plain to keep her with the stock rims and tires time to spice up the relationship

Well what's your budget?

Personally if you just want to spice the Jeep up I'd either Paint em(These are mine painted; sneak peak) or you could Plasti-dip them(Matte black kind of look[here's a DIY tutorial link; How to Plasti Dip your wheels] looks really nice and is only a $13 job) If you go ahead and paint them here's a tutorial(you can really choose the color; Matte Black, Gray, Gloss Black, Graphite, etc) How To; Paint your wheels w/ out removing them
For tires.. I recommend Discount tires.. but that's because I don't have all the money for super tires.. I got some Konaha's they're doing really good for the price.

Hope that helped and goodluck!

Thanks! I though about painting mine but for some reason I feel like my tires are too small.. I put a different set of tires maybe a bit bigger but I feel like my Jeep still looks plain I want it to have a mean look.

Re: Help! Rims and Tires!

Well get some pictures up of the Jeep(to use the [IMG][/IMG] you need to upload to photobucket and copy the IMG code, to post on here.. or you can use imageshack.us and link it)

I've got 17in(maybe 16in) wheels.. and the new tires def made me want to paint mine.. If you want a mean look.. Black :-)

I LOVE the street look!! I feel like the off road look will give it of a meaner look though and send me some links maybe i should order some as well.. Did you just put new tires or suspension as well?

Re: Help! Rims and Tires!

Plasti-dip them and see if you like it.. you can find it at Lowes/Home Depot/Ace.. if you don't like the outcome you can peel it off and have em back to stock chrome!

How much did you say they were? I am very down to do it though! How much you get your tires for?
