I was thinking that too. Rob I have a couple unmounted Argent Pintlers if you want to hold them up to your Jeep to see how they look (you could then have a powdercoater replicate the finish if you like it).

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

I like them Rob, just being honest I think a part of some guys mental picture of them was spoiled by this picture. And I'm guilty of it myself. But I do think they look good!!!

yup Nate. thats a machine face wheel on that photochop.

dont get me wrong. they look awesome on my wk if you are into chrome and attention.

but I think the grey ghost is a bit more laid back, low key...... IDK.

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

I like your wheels though. I agree with ya about the grey ghose being laid back looking. The wheels fit just a little flashy but look better than most aftermarket wheels I've seen... Maybe like what was mentiones about powdercoating them or something. But honestly I think they look fine. What about droping the jeep a little? Hows the snow situation there?

Blue Flame on Evans a little west of Santa Fe (http://www.blueflamepowder.com/gpage.html). Great people to work with. They were very patient with me (it took me forever to settle on a color for my armor and wheels).

Just to prepare you, the most expensive part of refinishing those wheels will be sandblasting.

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

Well Rob I love your WK (always have) and think it looks great...BUT

I think the chrome takes away from the look you have so perfectly portrayed "The Grey Ghost".

Does it look AMAZING? Yes
Would I drive it? For sure
Would changing the chrome out make it look better? IMHO yes.

Just my opinion but I think that with a comp grey powdercoat or true black-chrome the Grey Ghost would be in FULL FULL FULL effect. IMHO the grey ghost is below the radar, and those chrome wheels are not.

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

I disagree...wheels are one thing that IMHO do not need to match the truck. they should be a contrast. IMO...white wheels look silly on a white truck, red wheels on red , gray wheels on gray etc. Its just too much.
