JK 18s on my Wk
 
After toying with the Overland 18s (7 spoke chrome) in photo shop i looked, and pondered and really did not like what i thought i liked.

So i tried to play with a pic of mine and some JK Sahara (machined finish) 18s.
Here we go. I love it, Seriously.

And before,

So much so that i fell upon a deal on a set of 4 for (machined finish with only 50 miles on them) $300 on ebay. Well i should not have by any means but i gave in and used my no payments for 3 months Ebay Credit card. They will be here in a week or so.

Then i just need to wait until i save for new tires before winter/this fall, before i throw them on. Till then they are shed bound.

JU is where i got that pic and the pics i took the wheels from for my pic was a silver Wk. I spent 30 mins looking through the members rig section for pics of wks with these wheels. LOL

oooo, I Schnazzy, I did see that pic on JU.

I prefer the ones i bought off ebay today with the machined finish but the painted ones still look good as well.

Thanks Guys, Technically i should not have bought them but for that price i could not resist.

Now once they get here, i will store them till later in the fall when i can afford new tires. I am not sure what size tire to get yet, it really depends on what brand i choose. I can get all the tires locally but for more cost but that will prolly equal out with shipping.

Here is What i am choosing between, They all meet my needs for both summer and winter use but is down to cost and availability.

Nokian WRG2 255/60/18 $180 each installed (local) -Supposed to be amazing year round, excells in snow and bad weather ~40k mi tire on AWD SUVs. readily available supurb reviews online.

Pirelli Scorpion ATR 255/60/18 $179 each plus shipping and install (tire rack.com) ~50k mi tire advertised. Great tire rack reviews.

Yokohama Parada Spec X 245/60/18 $151 each plus shipping and install (tire rack.com) Unknown tire life, Great tire rack review.
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....omCompare1=yes

The 255/60/18 is just a tad bigger then the stock size 245/60/18. by about 20mm wider and ledd then 1/2" taller. Tire shop said they should fit just fine with out any rubbing issues.

I reckon they'd look great with "behind" the spokes colour matched, just leaving the flat spoke area and the outer circle alloy finish. These are are really cleanly styled rim, me like :)
