    Default Wheel Upgrade! Black Rock Viper 900's!

    Santa was pretty good to me this past year, and threw some extra Jeep-Mod funding my way.
    I used it to swap out my Stock Wheels with the Black Rock Viper 900's. Sorry about the Garage Pics, but it's pouring rain out today, and I just had these put on a few hours ago. The wrong Center Caps were shipped (Tungsten color...), and the Black ones have been reordered and will be here next week.



    They only stick out an additional two inches, and don't look so "Stuck Under the Fender", like the Stock Wheels did. You can see a couple of inches of the tires outside of the fender here:

    Cheers!

    They look great. What are you running...new MTR's?

    I thought about getting those a painting them flat black. I like them, but their black version has that machined edge.

    I replaced the Stock Goodyear SRA's with Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armors. They're more aggressive than the SRA's, but not as much as the Duratrac's. I wanted a tire I could run on the highway with, and still do some trail riding too. These fit the bill perfectly.



    Regarding the Wheels... I had the Stock Silver Aluminum Rims (Moab???), and didn't like the style. However, not knowing Santa was gonna hook me up for the New Year with some Wheel-Funding, I opted to have my Wheels Powdercoated Gloss Black. Here's a Before and After shot of the same Wheels:




    I had added Silver Rim Tape (Pinstriping) to the outer edges of the wheel, to cancel out some of the Black-On-Black overkill, I was getting with the Black Fenders, Black Wheels and Black Tires. While they were, "OK", I still had a different style of wheel in mind, just not the $$$ to see it through. When that happened unexpectedly for Christmas, I broke out my Wheel Short List again, and picked the Black Rock's.

    Thanks for the comments, Shipmates!

    Cheers!
