AEV Pintler Wheels

Hi everyone

We are about to move to Massachusetts (apparently they get snow there!) from Sydney, Australia. As you can tell, we are out of our minds, so consequently we have ordered a Grand Cherokee Overland Sumitt with the off-road and Hemi options. Will worry about a house later.

I have emailed AEV but had no response but would love to know if their 17 inch Pintler wheel will fit the WK2?

If so, I would like to run one of the following:

Cooper Zeon LTZ LT265/70 R17 31.6 in
Cooper Zeon LTZ LT285/70 R17 32.7 in (probably too tall)

BF Goodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO 275/70 R17 32.2 in (probably too tall)
BF Goodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO 265/70R17 31.6 in
BF Goodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO 275/65R17 31.1 in

Any thoughts?

Cheers

No 17" wheel will fit the Overlands, THey have a heavy duty brake which is too big for clearance.

IMHO you should consider 2 sets of wheels unless you plan on doing a lot of offroad (not sure there's too much of that around Boston) one with summer or all season tires and on with a dedicated winter tire. None of those listed will come close to the performance of a dedicated winter tire such as a Blixzak. http://www.bridgestone.com/products/...zak/index.html

Yeah, thanks for that - that's pretty much what I will be doing, although from what I have read, some of the better AT type tires are pretty good in the snow as well - BTW moving to Cape Cod not Boston.

Cheers
Greg

Can you clarify?

How big are the brakes on the Overland vs what is offered on the Limited or Laredo?

Not sure physically how much bigger they are. But the Overland adn Summit have whats stated as "HD Brakes" which I assume is Heavy Duty Brakes. I had a brake profile done for a wheel company that I was looking at. They sent it off to their engineer to see if he could remove enough material to clear the brakes, but had no success.

I'd be real interested to learn what is dimenionally larger.

I did a quick check last night and unless the site providing the information was incorrect, it indicated the rotor size was the same on Overland and Laredo, 12.9" front and 12.6" rear.

Looks like I'll have to do some more digging around to see what I can find...

Yes the rotors can be the same , but the Caliper's can be larger which would make the wheels not fit.
A member on here measured his brake profile for and and it cross referenced with the dealership.

It appears the info I found last night was incorrect. According to the good people at Edmunds.com the Overland rotors are an inch larger. I guess I satisfied my own curiosity more than anything else.

Overland

Its not just Overlands with larger rotors, Hemi powered Laredo X and Limited models have the larger heavy duty brakes also.

That could put a damper on my plans.

Now here's the crazy thing. This is the WK2 from SEMA, it's sporting the same 17" Moab's that come on the JK's. I wonder how they got them to fit.

It appears they used some wheel spacers.
Is that Offroad Edition a V8 model?
