Below are some (not so good) but updated pics of my 99Xj project. Currently im running 285/75/16 MT/Rs on 16x7 Jeep Ultra Star wheels with 1.25" wheel spacers. there is nothing wrong with this set up but im thinking about switching to black steel "d" window wheels instead. I like the look of both styles....but i can't decide....what do you guys think would look better??

I like the ones you have on there. I think those would look best.

I have the Black D window's. Everybody has em...

Unless you wanna be part of the Black Steel club. :gee:

i like these too, i just think the steel wheels would be a little better suited to the rocks - these are already starting to take a beating.

If that be the case, you might want to go with the steelies then.

At 40 bucks a pop, can't go wrong.

I've always enjoyed mine.

I like what you have. I have had both steel and aluminum and prefer the aluminum over the steel for most things.

Why not just paint the ones you have black? I painted my '99 Limited alloy wheels flat black; it came out nicely enought that some of my friends thought I had them powdercoated.

Lincoln, what is the problem with your wheels. wheel them until they are beat to crap. then get some new wheels. this is the 3rd set of tires and wheels you have put on that XJ in 3 months. Just wheel them and have fun!
