vavle stems!!!

do i need spacers to put srt8 rims on my WJ?

im going to get reproductions i guess.. because i cant find any real black srt8 wheels online..

ALSO. my main question. will these vavle stems go on my 04 WJ?

JEEP Cherokee Wheel Tire Valve Stem Caps SRT8 CJ CJ5 - eBay (item 110617316190 end time Nov-30-10 14:12:45 PST)

i'd just have to get 5 sets of the 4 right? so i'd have 5 for each of the 4 wheels?

Most wheels just have one valve stem. What kind of wheel are you running that would require five valve stem caps?

Does your jeep have pressure sensors?? Being an 04' I might and if so you do not want to use those caps. If they don't have sensors then yes you can totally use them without any issue.

The 5th one is probably for the spare...

Wow I just overlooked his original post. NO you do not need more then one set of caps. Each wheel only has one valve stem which uses one valve stem cap.

You're wanting to buy 5 sets of 4 to have 4 sets of 5? And questioning spacers? It sounds like you are intending to ask about LUG NUTS and wheel spacers. A wheel and tire will have one valve stem, and require one cap.

Can't help you with lug nuts with logos. But you can find some sweet center caps off other jeeps. I wanted these for my ZJ and havent found a cheap set yet. http://www.myaston.com/k/?view=item&...kee+Center+Cap

http://www.automotiveaddicts.com/mag...eCaliper01.jpg Sorry, I forgot to mention the center caps I posted earlier would work with after market wheels like the cragar soft 8s. The ones you posted up are the ones that fit the center cap for the jeep wheels.

those are real srt8 wheels though.

see how on these reproduction wheels the center cap is blank?

Special: JEEP, Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Black 20x9 OEM Factory Replacement Wheels & Rims Sets

There is no center cap in the wheel you posted- nothing to pop out. The circle in the middle is made to fit around the same section of axle, so I'm assuming its the same size, so I'm assuming the center caps in question will fit.
