Hi All - I am amazed at what all of you have done so far with your new arrivals !!. I have everything selected for my new Granite Sahara except for Rims ! . Im a Remodeling designer by trade so I didnt think this would be an issue but I was wrong !!

So many Black rims I see everyday in travel I wanted to do something different but the Granite color is more of a challenge than I thought . I have worked the Configurator's and visualizers on many wheel sites , Ive googled granite jeeps with new rims to maybe help with stepping outside the box hoping to narrow down my choices . Ive gone to 2 local jeep custom shops and they tend to lean towards black as well .

Because of what I do for a living and work with Million dollar homes and owners I kinda want to keep some perspective and not go to overboard when Im pulling into there driveways . Then again ,,,,Its a jeep ...a 2018 JEEP !! and it deserves to stand out !!!

Maybe Im complicating it or over thinking it But could really use my fellow Jeep members opinions and ideas, I thank you all who have taken the time to read this and give me your input !!!!!!

Attached are some ideas :

Personally, I like the third option (Butler). I think the dark gray rims look good with the granite paint color. (even though it looks like the Jeep in that photo is black). I also think those rims are the least "blingy" of the five, the most toned down if you will.

I 2nd this. I like the less showy approach, and the finish looks really good, IMO.

Now is the time ...economy is good

Im going to be purchasing my home I currently live in at the end of the year so I feel the anxiety ...In a good way though = they are both investments !!!

As far as designing your Kitchen ...I can do that for you . Because Im in Florida 90% of my clients are from other states or countries so I design VIA email often . Getting a hands on visual is always best but I can do some 3D renderings base on pictures and measurements that a client will send ...Floor plans of kitchen and adjoining rooms are really helpful !!
Just PM me with an email and I'll see what I can do for you

I couldn't have put it better myself. Go for the Butler. Feels less mall crawler and more offroad to me (unless you want bling - then ignore this).

ha ha, yep - thanks for the offer, but my problems are too many choices and total cost! I've commissioned one design, conducted several of my own using online tools, and every cabinet shop I speak to lays out their own design. Paralyzed by indecision - temporary I know, but makes me laugh and smh all the same!

sounds much like my Rim dilemma !! Good luck

sometimes it helps to step away from it for awhile

Very welcome. We all need a second opinion sometimes on these choices. We get too close to our builds that we start to go blind! You can love one pair of rims (or a paint color, or a trim, or whatever), but then look at it so much that you start liking it less. And like you said before, it's easy to overthink these things.

Same situation on deciding on rims for my granite rubicon. Between the Fuel Krank or XD mammoth with 37s
