So, as others have posted on here - I'm looking to get some new wheels. BUT question is - what kind? I'm most likely going with black rims, but what brand? Any suggestions or ones to steer clear of? I got a quote for powdercoating the stocks (about 80a wheel, includes sandblasting) but for 20 bucks more I could just get what I wanted. Thoughts/suggestions?
Thanks!

I highly recommend you talk with Matt @ Discount Tire Direct to get what you want. He hooked me up with my wheels for my Jeep and the customer service is top notch and all of their stuff is free shipping! I couldn't have asked for better support and help with my purchase. Give him a call at 888-459-4080 ext. 51865 and tell him Scott from JK-forum sent ya. I promise you will not be disappointed.

I agonized for months over what wheels to get for my 09 Escape. I wanted black with a machined and polished lip, no silly rivets around the rim or anything else that would make them hard to clean, and I wanted 5 spoke. There are a few websites that let you view their rims on any color Escape and they helped. Finally when all was said and done I ended up with a set of Ford Racing Black Bullit wheels. The ones designed for the 05-09 Mustang had the offset I wanted. The earlier version had a slightly different offset. Biggest tires I could get to fit were 255/60/17. I think it looks awesome, but that's just me. Send me your email address or tell me how to post a pic on here and you can judge for yourself.

later,
bob

Thanks Colleen...........I think it will look much better in a few weeks when I install the semi-flat black grille and XLT bumper cover with flat black center section. And the hood scoop. And the new exhaust. When will it stop?

take care,
bob

Can you change that to say Jeep parts instead??
As you wish. :D



It's funny you asked that. I got it from a friend here at work who has (well... had until two weeks ago, now just his unlimited) two Jeeps and changed it to Escape. :lol: Every time you all post Jeep pics and vids I forward to him. He keeps prodding me to bring the Escape out with him. :shrug:
