MT Classic Lock 15x8's

So I'm stoked! My neighbor had a 87 jeep with MT classic locks 15x8 and 5x4.5 lug. Before he sold the jeep he wanted to swap back to the jeep stockers and I helped him out in his backyard in snow. that was a job, at least the ground was frozen. So he kept them and is now looking at selling them. Told me he'd sell them to me for a pretty rad deal. I looked up some pics and me likey! The only thing I need is the simulated bead lock dealio's that go around the rim. his are the standard same color as the rims and are a little knicked up. I'd like to go with black or something else that will go well with my white ranger. And as far as the lift I will have sometime in the next few months, hopefully, I will probably go with anything from 31's to 33's with 11.50-12.50 widths.

any suggestions are more than welcome, especially on what color trim dealio to put on the simulated bead lock.

here's some sites / pics from those sites that have these rims:

oh yeah, I see that in your avatar. that's funny. I just did a simple search through google and found a couple trucks with the rims. I'm trying to figure out what color beadlocks to put on it...or just to stick with the stock ones. Obviously I could go with black. I think that would look good. As far as other colors go...I haven't seen any white rangers or even other white trucks with beadlocks other than stock colors.

My buddy's got the caps that go with the rims. The caps have some rust but I'm not worried about it. only 10 bucks. I hadn't even noticed the stock ranger centers on that black ranger. I agree, not bad.

i think either polished or black would look good on a white truck. i think even a dark shadow grey or something like that would look awesome too. you can always have the stock ones painted or powedercoated any color you want. thats what i did. also if the centercaps are rusted too bad they sell replacements.

yeah, they're like 10 bucks a piece. I'll wait a while on that.

I'll check some prices on the beadlocks and then check craigslist/ebay for some. See if I can't get a good deal, if I find some cheap enough I'll get another set.

thanks for the colors, I hadn't thought of the dark shadow or smoke or anything in that inbetween black/grey blend. that would look really good.
