peek @ my new wheels

Hello once again, here is a peek at my new 20x8.5 ruff racing wheels I got a set of 5 (spare). I am still waiting on TPMS from jeep dealer and the shop will pick them up. Then I will buy the tires 245/35/20 Hancook ventus h105, we had the same tire on our Explorer in Germany on the 22's. we rode those wheels hard 100mph + for 48,000 miles, so I figure 55-90 mph in the states they should do great. Best part they come with a 50k+ warranty, ok ok so my wife took the pics and she decided to show me hers are bigger than mine oh well hopefully in a few days I will have some pics of the Jeep sitting on the 20's , since it's almost 2" lower it should look nice and neat. Oh and the black lip will be painted same color of the Jeep to give a smooth chrome green transition / chrome mirrors/door handles grille..etc..well thats all for now...hope all is well

Nice rims! I'm still considering getting new ones, but for some reason, I don't quite mind the stock rims on the compass. They're not half bad, really.

Take it easy on the bumps. there does not appear to be much rubber between the rim and road.
