I thought this was a forum to share ideas and help people out, not act like a dickhead and hide behind a keyboard and sprout shit to people who's ideas they do not like.

While I am not a fan of large rims, I think that A-Kon and shelprock are both being D I C K S and should STFU if they cannot provide assistance or play nice in the sandpit with the other kids

Pretty sweet looking Jeep and matching wheels. I'm really digging the color coordination. The proportions though look a bit..off. Maybe it looks better in person? Regardless, to each his/her own.

People, don't forget that 20" wheels at one point of time was considered over the top or "ghetto" if you will. Spinners on the other hand...

1. I'm not hiding behind a keyboard, I'd tell someone to their face they were ugly if it fit into conversation. I have as much right to say how ugly I think they are as others do who say they are great. Because like you said, this is a forum for DISCUSSION, not one sided conversations. This isn't an Obama led conversation where we only talk about things that fit one viewpoint.

2. Sorry Scott, I've tried to be more open minded here lately, but this surprises me how many people can get so easily butthurt here. Guess I need to adjust even more going forward so that I don't hurt so many fragile ego's.

3. For those who would like 24" rims. Please don't forget to post pics and a story about your roll over accidents.

Well I'm definitely not hiding. I'm 6'6" in real life and I weigh 275 lean pounds. I'll more than happily tell you what a ghetto pile of crap you have in person if you're rollin' on 24s in an SRT.

At some point "that's your taste" goes out the window. There is a level of acceptance and a tolerance range. When it goes out of the range it's open season. 24s on a performance vehicle is out of that range. Might as well throw some gold spoke Daytons.

I proudly shamed a Ford GT guy out of 22s. Met him out at a race my friend held, told him what I thought. Next time I saw him he was on 19/20s. His car went from ghetto fab to flawless. Mission accomplished. One less bastard car on the road.

First and last post in this thread, no doubt Shleprock and A-kon have justified what kinds of persons they are.

They are, what we would call in Australia TOSSERS...

Re: Has any one put 24" rims on 14' SRT?

Holy shit - we're still at this. Is it shark week and nobody told me?

We all have differing opinions, why does anyone need to give a shit? Seriously, this is the internet - if you want 24's and someone else says they suck, why does it matter? Do you need other's approval rating? You running for office next?

Myself, not a fan of 24's in the least. My mindset is, 24's? why stop there?

Let's slap hydraulics and bounce dis beyatch.

now, see, that's my view.

Does my view matter? Nope. So why care? It's your Jeep - you want 24's. Put on 24's. Street cred is hard to get when you're growing older. We all get it.

also my view.

Re: Has any one put 24" rims on 14' SRT?

Come on boys, Aussies are renowned for taking the piss out of people and visa versa. To me this is just a bit of fun but I am not the original poster so I can't talk for them and understand their reaction I suppose.

Seriously if you want 24's then go for it, looks like not many people on here have done it but the photo Tom posted I reckon looks OK.

In saying that though if you go through with it I would expect more comments like the ones you have received already on this thread. You can't expect not to get that reaction from some people and especially in Australia. Running 24's is asking for serious attention and that will be both good and bad, you can't just expect it all to be good surely.

Anyway I reckon with the right wheel it looks OK. Throw some photos up of the wheels you are thinking of. Remember, as I think someone has already stated, not so long ago 20's would have been frowned upon and considered ghetto, now everyone is running 22's including me shortly.

Re: Has any one put 24" rims on 14' SRT?

Yes, A-kon and Schleprock, you're right, much like assholes, we all have opinions and you have also properly demonstrated that some assholes smell worse than others. That is great that you think a car is ONLY cool if it appeals to your taste... what kind of a mindless, childlike opinion is that? Its an opinion, do we need to go back to grade school and whip out the Websters and explain what that means? I dont care how rich you are or how far your head is shoved up your ass, an opinion is an opinion, yours is no more correct than theirs...

Also for clarification A-kon, SRT means "STREET and racing technology"... not "performance". Also, your an idiot if you think this forum is flourishing because of any of your contributions, there are 40k other people contributing to this forum to make it what it is, and you are of the minority that is going around telling people how their opinion is wrong.

I feel like the "I'm rich and better than you" land rover crowd is finally being enticed over to the jeep side, as they are typically the only ones narrow minded enough to think an opinion was a one way street. Bravo!
