Question Black Alloy Wheels

I've been so pleased with this Forum for all the help and advice I have received....thank you ALL again.
But, I have one more request....... (for now ).
I'm looking for 17" (18" if I have to) black alloys for winter use on my Overland. Any suggestions?
Will WK wheels fit the WK2?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Black Alloy Wheels

Those wheels do look nice, I am even considering changing the color when I order my jeep from white gold to dark charcoal.

Re: Black Alloy Wheels

Thanks guys....I've seen those 18" and 20" and I will consider the 18" if I can't find any nice 17".
I'll be using them for the winter so the problem is having only two choices in winter tires for 18" but many for the 17"s.

Red, check out the Cragars, ProComps, maybe a few others for 17's. These are listed for the WK, so you'll have to check with them for proper offset and whatnot. You could also consider an AT tire vs pure winter depending upon your conditions.

Re: Black Alloy Wheels

Here's the MM's on the Ruby. The Jeep version looks a bit more tame.

Re: Black Alloy Wheels

As soon as you see the factories offering a black wheel, you should realize they are then passe, and time to move to a different statement!
