ktwillis,

I like the look of your Jeep. I was think of doing the same with the chrome removed but with 20" Overland Summit Bright Polished Wheels. Wish someone had pictures of that.

Hey Gents looking for some advice/input/help. I've been exhausting multiple forums in search of what tire/size size to go with. After much deliberation I went with
Terra Grapplers 275/65r18 (stock Laredo rims). They look great, but to my dismay they are rubbing in the left rear fender well, so much in fact it wore a hole through
the rear of the fender well. This was done with a full load (4 passengers) not even on the trail, so this makes me think that once I DO go on the trail; i'm screwed. So whats
my best option here? will a RR 2.5 lift resolve this? Spacers (if so how much)? I've tried to find the answer to this but i'm coming up short and my fender wells are paying the price.

Thanks for the help guys.

My Jeep: 2012 WK2 Laredo X, 3.6L, No Spacers, No Lift, Stock 18's.

The only place I see it rubbing is the rear of the back left wheel well. Also forgot to mention, I've got a non-quadra lift wk2.

^weird. I've towed heavy boats, fully loaded with people and gear and never rubbed with the same set up.

Spedo Reconfigure

Hello New jeep owner here. Have stock 265/60R18 and was considering stepping up to 265/65r18 for the availability of a Goodyear Trippletred. I was wondering if anyone has re calibrated their spedo without purchasing aftermarket equiptment? I know its roughly a 2mph error at 60, but its a new car for me and i'm anal.

Only a dealer has the star scan system that can change the tire factor, if that is even an option on the WK2.

Hey everyone long time lurker first time poster. Got new shoes for the GC 4WD QuadraTrac II with BFG Rugged Terrain 265/70/R17's on stock wheels (stock tires were 245/70/R17). They fit fine with no lift no rub. Drove with full travel and no issues.

Awesome! I have the same but in 33" haven't seen anyone else on here with em yet, they are actually quiet compared to other all terrains like BFG Baja champs

it would be sweet if I could get a set of these on my Summit. I need these tires (or similar) on an 18" rim for special times

18" XD Addicts, +18 offset, machined. BFG All-Terrain 275/65/18. No spacers. 2.5" RRO lift kit. Slight rubbing on front tires when wheel turned to the max, nothing to worry about really.
