Wheel Idea..
 
Yes I know, this is a terrible photo chop. I did it with MS Paint. It took 2 minutes. I really like these wheels, Vossen VVSCV7. Either in 20" or 22". The only problem is they don't make them for the Jeep. I'm checking now to see if they can custom drill them.

Also, I'd do them in a Graphite color. Not silver, not black.

I was told they don't do the custom drills there but there is a company in Cali that does. There is another member on here that has fitted a set of their cv3's.

So the company buys the wheels without holes and then drills them? Hmmmmmmm

more like buys then fills and re-drills.

The bottom line here is I'm not willing to spend over $3k for a set of wheels. I don't like the factory reproduction on the WK2.

My friend is a Vossen dealer so I can probably get a good deal on them.

That scares me.

^^ agree.

the ace wheels are well under 3k. I just can't figure out if the spokes are too small for the jeep?

Re: Wheel Idea..
 
For the WK2 I prefer a 6-7 spoke design, light concave. Deep dish does not work on these IMO. There was a black 14 on ebay with some 21" Niche Monoblocks that looked great. I messaged the guy but he was kind of a dick. Also wasn't interested in selling the wheels which I understand.

The company is Cali wheels in San Jose and i'm not sure how they actually do it but I was told the cost was pretty high ($5K+).

Niche makes some affordable cast wheels. but not the 7 spoke for the jeep. They have a 5 that fits, the M137 (SUV) the suv has larger spokes:

Then you're probably out of luck. Tires alone are going to run over $1k. Retail for Vossen's and the like are pushing $6k with tires.
