Wheels

I'll probably end up with just a used set, but I figured I'd ask anyway.
   
When I was driving Friday I saw a Ranger with 15" black rims. They were steel, but rather than being either "OEM" steelies or rock crawler style they were a classic 5-spoke alloy shape. I'd never seen black steel rims like that (always alloy and usually silver or two-tone).
   
If they were reasonably inexpensive I'd be all over them, but since I've never seen them, I don't know where to start.
   
Anyone ever seen these and/or know who makes them?

Re: Wheels

are you sure they weren't painted or maybe powder coated by the owner? I've seen many times on 4WDs where people paint their aluminum wheels because they've either wheeled them and scratched them or just really liked the look of black wheels.

They were quite thin. I got a pretty good look at them. That's the look though, the Cragars. I feel dumb because I know I've looked at Cragars before and I don't remember the V-5. I'll have to look in to that.

Re: Wheels

those are the wheels I have on my XJ. I like them quite a bit. black steelies but not the same as you see on every other 4WD around. there are pics of my Jeep in the in the photos section if you want to see them on an XJ.
