2014 grand cherokee 18" black wheel choices
 
Hi to everyone,
I'm trying to find a set of black 18" rims for my 2014 GC limited and these are the only two that I can find with the correct offset.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Wheel - 18" - Night Fever - Black (Part No: 82212377): AllMoparParts.com

18" Black Cast Aluminum Wheels for Jeep Grand Cherokee - Item # 82212154

The night fever is nice but it's 7.5" wide as opposed to the 8" stock rims. I really hate to go more narrow. Anyone out there have pictures of either wheel installed? experience with either rim? opinions about the width thing?
Thanks

Don't you hate it when the only reply that you get is from yourself? :D
Anyway, I found these and i think that they might be a good choice. I really like the design of the factory rims, but I wanted to make my black GC a little different than the rest. Anyone out there got the black chrome look on?

Nice find, so they charge a $250 core exhange fee and they send you their permachromed wheels and you send them back your stockers?

I think so, but I'm not sure. It's a little confusing. I tried to call all of their contact numbers,but all I get is a weird busy signal. I've emailed them for details and because I've heard mixed messages about the quality of this company, I'm not doing anything until I speak to someone there. Also if you click on links to parts of the site concerning shipping, customer service, ect, you get some strange goblygook language. I'm hopeful but cautious at this point

Follow up #1: The deal was that price in red plus $1000 core dep. My rims only have 3000 mi and are pristine. I will take detailed pictures before I send them back. I spoke with the company this morning and they were very responsive and helpful. They sent pictures of the actual wheels,gave me an even better deal than the web price and I feel confidant that they will honor their end of the exchange bargain. I will keep everyone informed as the deal goes forward, but so far so good. They had a gloss black option, but I think the black chrome is a classier look for the pearlcoat black and chrome trim of the Limited.

P.S. they were just as surprised by the glitch in the website and thanked me for bringing it to their attention. said that it was a new rebuild and would get right after the designers.

here you go, they will be here tomorrow AM. They are exactly the same as the stock ones except for the black chrome finish. I just wanted to make the truck a little distinctive without changing anything mechanical. I think that he took these with a cell phone in a bright room. They can look from black to a dark gunmetal with different amounts of reflectivity and hints of chrome depending on the light source and direction. I'm going for the sinister but sophisticated look.

Some quick pics with the result. It's just what i was looking for. No problems switching over at Pep Boys... they were great and reasonable. just sent back my stockers in mint condition for the return on the core deposit.

thanks, I'm happy. They're not too common in my area too, which is nice. They probably will be at some point, but for now they're pretty unique
