Wheels!

Alright guys, I am still planning on buying rims in the very near future... pretty much when I find the prices I want I'm going to start buying. The big questions is... what do I get? ha

Options are:
1) 20" SRT reps
2) 22" in something else
3) Wait for 22" Viper reps

I am not going to wait monthes and monthes for the Viper wheels but if we can get a guaranteed release date in the next month or 2 then I will wait. I'm getting ready to email Factory Reproductions and see if I can get anything out of them.

Also, where is the best place online to buy tires for good prices? Ebay?

Opinions please...

Re: Wheels!

I think a set of black SRT8 reps would look good on the silver jeep.

Re: Wheels!

I would definitely do the black Reps BUT with all the chrome trim and probably not having the money to get all the chrome trim painted silver, I was probably going to do chrome

Re: Wheels!

hmmmm.....I luv my runflats...but some people dont. they are great in all situations...but pricey. I was gonna suggest finding one of the nuts on the cherokeesrt8.com that are selling a low mile set and get them. stay under 5000 miles if you get a used set and have them road force balanced and get the alignment for sure. If you have trouble...PM me I have two rear SRt tires just setting here...but one of them was patched.

Re: Wheels!

What about something not as pricey but obviously still a good tire? and what about size?

Re: Wheels!

I'd rather pay the extra $$ and have the protection in case of a flat.
