I think it does need a little drop, even if it's just the rear to get it level
FYI I dropped the rear of mine before deciding to do all round.

I voted (a) ,of course my opinion might be a little jaded,LOL. I agree-you need to drop it to fill the wheel wells better with those tires.

For powder coating? Let me know what shop - myself and a friend need to get our wheels done and I have been looking/asking all over.

Oh and I voted that the wheels look great, if you passed me on the road I'd def be coming after you to catch a better look!

Thumbs up Re: Wheels: Did I do the right thing? Please vote....

Love those rims man and lookin great i must say!!! I wish some one would get the Black w/ red lip Viper rims on their WK's. Those are the one I plan on getting, but have yet to see them on a Inferno WK.

Re: Wheels: Did I do the right thing? Please vote....

I have to admit, when i read the title i had it in my mind i wouldn't like the look...........
BUT i have changed my mind, the chrome looks Sharp.... again though i like the Black, though i think for my color jeep Black would be the best (jeep green).

Good job on the wheel selection...

DO you notice any performance loss? accelerartion? braking? hows the ride with these...

Re: Wheels: Did I do the right thing? Please vote....

You have no other chrome on the vehicle, so why would you add a single chrome element?

I vote for Black Chrome too. Powdercoaters should be able to give you a sample of what they can achieve, so you don't really need to take their word for it.
