I've collected 5 sets of wheels- Which do I keep or recycle?

WTF am I thinking?

 

I have these sitting around in the garage:

 

XJ Wagoneer wheels (bad finish):

These damn things painted black:

XJ Sport wheels painted black (and currently on):

XJ 10 hole studded wheels (bad finish, winter wheels):

and these 15" Ranger wheels (with no centercaps):

So, which do I keep, and which do I turn in to the recycle place for $15 a wheel?

 

other info:

-I need to keep 2 sets, and I like the 10 hole studded wheels.

-All sets are either painted or have bad finishes except the Ranger wheels which are perfect but missing centercaps... and they're still Ranger wheels.

-Wagoneer wheels aren't very common, but they're not the prettiest on the planet.

-5 spoke wheels are too common and boooooring

-10 hole no stud Sport wheels have a good recent paint job.

These are kinda rare, but aren't that good looking IMO, and are kinda narrow.

These can look good when cleaned up and painted nice.

I don't care much for these:

Ditch the ranger wheels, the inner hubcentric hole is slightly too small for the XJ/MJ.

 

Also, check out the Jeep wheels guide for your future wheel reference:

So here's the final verdict. Since I like the look of OEM wheels, I went with:

 

10 hole studded wheels for winter wheels (studded tires)

5-spoke wheels with a repaint (as shown below in progress)

 

 

The 3 remaining sets are going to the metal recyclers unless I find a local CL buyer for them for at least $15 a wheel or $60 a set.

I have the same set, they came off my first MJ. They don't have wheels on them now, and IDK what to do with them.... Where would I recycle them???
