    I am very good at dragging my feet apparently, I'm still trying to figure out my wheels and tires, lol.

    Anyways, I've had a set of Jeep "turbine" wheels for months in my garage, slowly been sanding away at them trying to remove scuffs and polish them up to look better. Last week I randomly looked on CL again and saw a set of the wheels I was originally looking for....so now I need to make a decision.

    I never really took pics or photoshopped the wheels onto my truck, so I took some quick pics with each of the wheels -- what do you think?

    Eventually truck will feature: 3" static drop and white paint.
    If I went with the turbine wheels I will be painting the triangular recessed parts black.
    If I went with the mesh wheels I may leave them alone, possibly paint them.

    Go with the turbines.

    Meshes seem to be a go to for these trucks. Same reason why i never bought meshes for mine

    Turbines. Or, some good-looking cragars.

    Both look good! I think the reason meshies are the go to, as jetas said, is they just plain look good (at least that is what I thought when I put them on mine! ha!). Those turbines look good too though. Can't go wrong either way!

    Bringing this back from the dead. You ever mount these? Found a set of the same turbines and wondered how they fit
