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?

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

Any and all advice appreciated...I have replaced my 2000 Lexus LX470 with a new 2012 WK2 Overland. Love the vehicle. I need two sets of wheels/tires for summer and winter use. For summer I have purchased 20" tires and rims (standard Fortera HL on Enkei rims). For winter I want the deepest tread I can get as I drive in unplowed snow to get to a remote cabin and like to avoid chains. On the Lexus my Cooper Discoverer STT's did me quite well over the years. Best I could get on the standard WK2 18" rims seemed to be the Cooper Discoverer AT3's; however, the AT3's did not handle in the snow like the STT's did this past year and there were times I could not get to the cabin. Any recommendations for a good offroad deep-tread tire like the STT's or Toyo Open Country that would work?

Hey guys - I have the base Laredo RWD (no QL). I don't really know much about wheels/tires, but what I do know is - I want them WIDER. I like the way the rear tires look on the BMW X5 & am interested in copying that look. I think they're staggered though. So, my question is: what would be the widest tires I can fit onto some 18 x 9s? I'm thinking I might be able to squeeze 305/55/18 in the front & maybe something even wider in the back. All of my driving is on the pavement, so no off-roading needs here at all.... Thoughts?

20"s wrapped in 33"s it's possible with removal of lower air dam and 1.5" spidertrax wheel spacers, Non QL naturally & RRO lift

Did you drill out the wheel spacers? My JK ones wouldn't work because the GC has larger studs. I talked to Spidertrax and they didn't make them for the new GC yet.

Yes simple use of a drill press, the hubs are exactly the same so just widen the stud holes and they fit snug & perfect, also have to change your lugs on the outside to wk.

Did you use the stock lug nuts to secure the spacer to the hub, or the spacer to the wheel?

I'm asking because I took the stock rubicon wheels/tires off my JK the other day and put it on my WK2. Those 32s and wheels look bad on the WK2! The rubi wheel doesn't have the same backspacing and doesn't have the inside clearance for the WK2 brakes without spacers though.

How do you like your RRO Lift? Did you go straight to the 33s? I'm wondering if I'll have any rub at full articulation with 32's and spacers.
