Anyone know if I can just spray paint the rings, don't really like the silver color and don't want to pay for powder coat.

@Skye are you noticing much of a ride difference between the stiffer E rated load on the new tires and the stock C load? What about noise difference?

Love the setup. Highly debating doing the exact same one (or Black Rhino Barstows) for my JLUR...

My Rubicon in Joshua tree, CA

I'm running 36 psi (chalk tested) and they feel great! You can hear them but it's not bad. No impact to uconnect phone sound, radio, or conversations in the cabin.

Definitely would recommend.

Forgive me for being ignorant, what is the chalk test?

What lift kit did you use? I have a Sport and want 35s, but don't want to lift too much. Yours looks about right! :like:
Mopar 2 inch lift...I wonder if my stock Rubicon Springs, sharks, control arms, swaybar links would fit on that Spprt? It would definitely give you a Lyft.

I would Plasti-Dip them as opposed to painting them. If you ever want to go back to the original color, you can just peel the Dip off. I dipped my JK wheels (came out great!) and will be dipping my JLUS wheels after I swap out the tires.
