Alright, Opinions on these USW 22" Wheels on my jeep
 
Well I've loved these wheels since I first saw them..

Never expected I would have the opportunity to own these one-of-a-kind wheels. Wrapped in VREDS!

They are now up for sale and I am considering buying them, just to make my jeep a little bit more unique.

Thing is, they are EXPENSIVE. My plans were to go forged 6.1, cam, etc etc, but I a always nervous doing the "big" stuff to the engine because I cannot afford for it to break and all the hours down at this moment.

I would be keeping my current set up for the track and most of the year. Only takes 10 minutes to switch the set in my garage..

Here are the 2 photos I have photo shopped. (one with help from a member on here)

Opinions?! :D

Also, if I went this route, I would probably vinyl my roof black and possibly my pillars. :eek:

These wheels do look smaller on my jeep.

Here they are on the original Jeep: (The lip and center cap on these pictures are red, but they are now black)

I really wish the guy was closer to actually install them on my jeep before I made the purchase.

I hear you. Nothing will ever beat the stock wheels, especially black chrome. :p

I just think one more thing to my exterior to make it "different" would be cool. And I miss my HRE's that I had on my mustang..

Agreed. I never really knew of USW until those. They are at least $6k new, if not more. + the tires.

Yes, his current price is $4k plus shipping, but I was offered them a nice amount less; which is the reason I am really considering them.

That was my first question, was the color red. He said they are Candy Apple Red, so of course it won't be a perfect match.
Also, they were just re-done in black and the red for sema, so they are flawless of course. Which is something I wouldn't want to mess with and trying to make the red match. I'm just curious how it would look in person being 2 different reds. (For example, I dislike the OEMred brembo's on the redrock)

understood about the price but only get them if you really like them. otherwise its the IDSCOUNTED PRICE NOW and 6K later LOLOLOLOL

i just like some of their other designs much better on a jeep. that center makes no sense on a jeep TO ME. I like their 5 spokes.....they start at about 4200 and go up from there based on finishes. then shipping, tpms, tires, mouunt balance, pictures :D.....

I do like them a lot, but I like the pictures I see. I want to see them rolling and all.

The price is playing a factor on it, because I know how much new rims cost. (If I don't buy these, I will not go aftermarket--at least USW)

These will basically be ready to mount. Will re-balance.

He offered them w/o tires, but then I have to buy new tires, pay to install them, mount/balance.

I've got time to consider.
