I've narrowed it down to two choices (I hope, I keep looking at too many) for my Firecracker Red JLUR:

Option 1:

Black Rhino Primm 17x9 -12 offset:

and the Black Rhino Reno 17x9 -18 offset:

I'm leaning #2 for the classic spoke look and maybe easier cleaning... anyone run either of these and have any feedback?

Wow, 65 views and no comments. I need to stop looking at pictures anyway and see some in person. Thanks anyway.

@blnewt thanks for the options, but I'm not a big fan of the Warn lineup or the Humvee look on the wheels. A bit more "military" than I'm looking for with a red Jeep. If I had a green Jeep maybe! I really wanted the KMC KM540 in red tint for some color (I've done the black many times now) but they are out of stock everywhere.... national backorder. I don't like this particular wheel in the other offerings of silver or black:

Definitely the Reno. I'm a fan of the meatier, less delicate look of the larger spokes, especially on a Jeep.

I've seen some grey and black KMC wheels like that I think look really good on red jeeps

I know maybe it's good its on backorder, I keep going back and forth but I'm pretty sure the Black Rhino Reno in black is my new wheel. My wife said NO to anything bronze and I don't want silver or brushed aluminum so that pretty much puts me in a black wheel. I'm ordering tomorrow so this is my last evening to stare at wheels and convince myself I'm making the right choice on style.

Probably because we are bored, Bored, BORED, with black rims, and yes I have them and I'm not proud of it.

Well I went with the Black Rhino Reno in black... 17x9, 4.29BS with a -18 offset. They will arrive next week. I'll throw up some pics after installation. Thank you to everyone who responded. Picking wheels is not easy and many designs are on a national backorder. I've heard everything from tariffs to stimulus checks causing the shortage of options.
