18" Pro Comp 7089 with 275/65/R18 BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A's.

2011Hemi fit these without trimming. I had to trim in the rear of the front tires because of the offset/backspacing of my wheels. FYI-

vba, you should remove the two lower front fascia pieces. It simple and fast. Looks a little better, too, IMO.

I have yet to figure it out. I took mine off the day I got Alice. Didn't notice a difference in anything except that, I think, it looks a lot better. The front end appears higher. I have taken off the front fascias on all my vehicles but this one has had the biggest impact since it is lifted and whatnot. Just my opinion on it.

Pulled the trigger on the cooper discoverer at3

265/65 r18 and they fit fine. Much better than the oe michelins that I barely milked 30k miles out of.

Anyone know the smallest wheel size you can fit? i miss my 15" rock crawlers. Im sure caliper clearance is the issue. But has anyone put a 16 or 17 on?

Nice setup.

Got any pics from the front or back? Want to see if how the wheels/tires look from that angle.

Also, are those TKO's 18x9?

I'm guessing that getoutandplay's camping pic has it lifted to off-road 2. (and that it's an Overland)

Also looking to replace my stock wheels/tires. But can't decide which direction to go, either keep the 20's and slap a set of the Nitto Terra grapplers on or trade out the 20's and use 18" wheels like 2011Hemi has. Both look great!

Could you guys post picture angles to show the width of the tires? (in addition to the side shots) I'm trying to get a good feel of how the vehicle's stance will look. (something like this picture which I really like the look of also) Thanks guys!

I have a few questions for you. I see you are now running Terra Grappler 275/65/18s on your Black Mopar 18 wheels. I also am purchasing Black Mopar 18 wheels and am trying to decide between 275/65/18 and 285/60/18 Terra Grapplers. Have you had any rubbing issues and do you think the 285s will fit with the Mopar 18s? Also did you purchase the Terra Grappler E or XL rated tire? why?
Thank alot!

You can get a BFG A/T KO in a 265/65R18. 31.7 x 10.7

Need Input:
I am thinking about a 275/65r18 Goodyear Wrangler MT/R Kevlar on either a Black Rock Intruder 18x8.5 or the Mopar Offroad wheel. The Intruder is 8.5" wide, 30mm Offset with 6" BS vs stock at about 8" wide, 50ish Offset and 6.25 BS. I'm thinking the tire will sit the same bc of the increase in width but decrease in BS.

My major concern is tire rub, since the tire is essentially a 32x11.

Is anybody running something similar?

have you noticed any difference in fuel economy between the OEMs and your A/T3's? How would you compare the difference in ride quality?
