Picking up my 2021 Rebel on Wednesday. Love everything about it except the wheels. Factory 2 tone wheels are just ugly. Could have lived with the same wheel in matte black but the dealership wouldn't trade. Looking for suggestions.

Alternatively, if you insist on getting new wheels and you like the OE ones, I would recommend the aftermarket ones from OE Wheels lol. I got them last year when I wanted to get snow tires because the stock sand/mud tires are awful in Minnesota snow. I paid $569 for them and the only different is the center cap has an eagle instead of a ram. Part Number: Hollander 2614
