New project

Picked up a set of stock 18's today. Previous owner spray bombed the flat black and was in the process of prepping them for new paint when I found them. I picked them up cheap and now have to decide what to do with them. I either want to go back stock silver or take some time and polish them. Ideas?

ugh I wish there were more retards in my area that I could grab 18s for cheap and I can throw some elbow grease at em and have great wheels.


Looks like a fun project!! I say go black but with your two options I would say go stock silver

They were black and I rocked the black 17's for a while and am burned out on it, everyone in my area paints their stock wheels black including the only other local YJ goat.

I'm not sure polished would look the best on YJ, I loved them on my SRM. I vote silver or a grey. I agree no black.

Gunmetal may also be an option

Gunmetal on stock 18s would be sweet on YJ and unique.
Love the gunmetal finish. If the black on my rims ever give out and need refinished gunmetal would definitely be on my list of colors.

I'd polish them, looks like you are most of the way in stripping them down

Gunmetal is the only other color I would put on my YJ.

Never like an all black wheel, unless the lip is polished. Would go gunmetal or stock color.
