TRADE: My Eagle Alloys and AT2's for stock KK wheels.

Putting my Liberty back to stock, for trade in purposes. I figure this is the best section because I only want KK wheels.

I'd like to trade my 17x8 Eagle Alloys with 255-65-17 General Grabber AT'2 for stock 16" or 17" KK wheels. I'd want some cashing coming my way as part of the deal. Depending on which rims you have, and condition of tires... would determine amount of money involved.

You'll need a lift with them, I have the 2" Revtek spacer lift (which I'll be removing and selling too), and they rub slightly on the pinch weld at full lock. Nothing that worries me.

Tires have between 15-20k miles on them, I installed them last winter.

In in Joliet, IL near Chicago.

Nice rims. Unfortunately I don't have the lift to accommodate those tires. Just thought I'd complement your Jeep

Thanks for the compliment! I'd make you a deal if you wanted to trade and buy the Revtek lift kit...

You local?

Same bolt pattern, but I need KK wheels to bring the trade in value back to where I'd like it to be.

Thanks for the offers though guys!

You have a nice looking KK in your picture Mr Nick.

Just curious why you are going to trade it in and for what?

I buy cars and use them as they are "designed" to be used. I always wanted 4wd offroad type vehicle, and finally got one with the KK. But in the almost 2 years I've owned it, I never took it offroading... except for playing around in vacant construction sites. I also have a slight need for speed, and the KK definitely does NOT fit that bill. So I'm not using it as designed, and I wish it was faster every time I drive it.

So, I'm looking for a Dodge Magnum R/T, or possibly an SRT8 if I can afford the price and insurance.

Some of my friends think I'm crazy, I already have a pretty quick 1969 Cutlass... but I like to have power all the time if I feel the urge... and the Cutlass is a nice weather only car.

SOOO tempting. I have an 08 limited with 17's w/33k. Just got my 2" daystar lift in the mail and have been searching online for 255/65/17's. I live on Long Island in NY though. I would love to see them in person and how and where they rub. I don't think a trade will work due to my location. However, when you did drive it on construction sites did the tires rub at all any other times than full lock? I drive on the beach and the suspension will compress a lot and often. A lot of bouncing goes on with the wheels straight and turned. I am trying to find out how well this size tire would work for me. Also, how much did your mpg's change when you got the new tires?

I lost about 1mpg overall with the heavier wheels. It rubs at the pinch weld at the back side of the tire, behind the plastic wheel well liner. If you rub it with your hand you can feel where it is. At stock height it also rubbed the front just a hair, but not once I lifted it. Get the right backspacing and you won't have any problems with 255/65/17's. My wheels have about 1/2" less back spacing then they should, so when I turn the tires "swing" out and catch the pinch weld.

I found a pic, you can see where the plastic is rubbed clean on the inner fender. Where I put the red line... there is now a slit worn thru the plastic from the tire. Under compression with the tire turned, it would rub more. I never ran into any problems with it jamming while I played around, but some more serious flex might be an issue.

Get the right backspacing and you'll be fine. Or just run a 245/65/17, I think that would have been totally fine on these rims. That's what the Commanders have, just as a reference.
