    the top picture is of my 98 Grand Cherokee stock the way it is now.... The bottom one is a photoshopped picture of my Grand Cherokee with the rims on my dad's 65 International... I've always liked that rim style since I saw them on a Grand Wagoneer a few years ago. I could probably find some at a junk yard or something for a reasonable price.

    BUT I would like to know what you all think. My brother says he's indifferent, my friend says he likes them, I like them but my opinion doesn't matter if no one else likes them [​IMG]

    I didn't quite size them properly. If I got them, they'd most likely be 15's. My Jeep has 16's, so I had to size the other rims to cover the factory ones. If I did this, I'd also get a set of 31's to put on them to fill up the wheel well a bit more....

    I normally wouldn't recommend the bottoms, but Jeep Snowflakes suck hard

    Stick with the original ones, you'll never be able to resell that thing with the other rims.

    The Exploder didn't sit there, nor did it leak thank you :cool1:

    The stains you see on the cement are a mixture of various fluids dripping out of mom's 76 Chevy and water from the snow/ice we got last night :D

    Old wheels may not fit on a new vehicle.

    I would not put that crap on my lawnmower, those wheels are ugly as hell.

    I love those "turbine" style rims... on old trucks. On newer stuff they look rediculous... Pre-80 truck, go for it!

    WTF is wrong with you? All that should ever matter is what you think about your own rig. If you spend your life worried about what everyone else thinks about your chit you're never going to be happy with life.

    Normally I wouldnt be so "outspoken" on a subject like this, but I completely agree with Tim here.
