Default New Shoes

Actually it was just temporary, but may end up buying them in the near future for DDing, my trXus are wearing like crap. They're american racing teflon coated wheels, don't know the model.

I really swapped them to see A. how they looked, and B. if it's my trXus that are making me have serious vibe issues on the e-way. And it was, looks like time for airsoft BBs in the trXus when I get some extra money.

Before:


After kinda:



I think they look really nice, and measure up to almost the exact same size as my 33" trXus, they're a 285/75/R16.

So, do guys like the black steelies better or the AR wheels?

I always loved to old ford alcoa rims, and I always wanted to paint some black - so I think that is your answer. The Americans look bad ass.

How does that teflon coating wear on a wheel?

if you put the swampers on the new wheels it would look badass. the BFG's don't have an agressive enough look on your jeep imo

MT's are 15's so won't fit the 16" rims

they don't stick out as far as the old wheels, it looks to skinny and top heavy now.

or it could just be the angles

and the rear sags a bit in the last pic
