Anyone thought of putting 17" AEV pintlers with 265/70/17's on their lifted wk2? Would there be any problems with that?

I think I narrowed my choice to the MB TKO in chrome. The specs are.
18x9
Back spacing: 5.98 in
Offset: +25

How would these fit on the WK2. I'd prefer to keep things as tucked under the fender as possible.

Thanks!

I have that offset in 18x8.5 with 285's. Sits just a bit outside the fenders.

So the 9 inch wide rim would stick out a tiny bit more?

That setup looks perfect. I plan on swapping on the stock tires till they wear then replacing them with something that size.

The 9" wide rim will still sit in the same location, as the offset is measured to the center of the wheel. You will have less sidewall bulge with the wider rim though. What size tire are you looking at? With my 285's (31.5" tall) I get some rub on the drivers wheel well on big road dips with the stock suspension. If you use a lift or leveling kit, you will have no problems.

Would this setup work well with the stock height/suspension? Or would you need a lift kit to have these fit without any rubbing issues?

I believe some have reported this setup having minor rubbing in the front even with the lift. At stock height I would imagine these tires would definitely rub.

Yes. I have used them for the last 3 sets on a suburban. Can't beat them. Quiet and 60-70k miles and they are good in snow.

American Racing Fuel 321 with Goodyear Duratracs 245x70x17. This setup gives the stock tire circumference and increases the tire to control arm clearance (backspacing) to allow more room for tire chains up front. Couldn't use std chains with stock setup in front so bought expensive Thule XG-12 chains...which are still too close for comfort.

tire size question

any one running a 275/65/18 tire of some thing that is of the same diameter and width?
im looking at some of these in a m/t and i see the width is the same as the 265/60/18 a/t that i currently have on the trailhawk...

any ideas on if this combo will rub or not. close to the same outer diameter as the jk 255 wheel/tire combo

Seems to work. See the discussion starting about post 22 of this thread:

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f309/...22/index2.html

You could also try searching for 275/65/18

New Jeep - Aftermarket Wheels/Tires

Hi all, great site this is my first post. I am planning on picking up a 2013 5.7 Laredo X tomorrow and have a question. I would like to get new wheels (20's) and tires right away but am unsure the best way to do that. What would one do with the stock ones? Would a tire shop or someone buy them? Is this something that is best handled at the dealer as they may have better use for the stock stuff? Any advice appreciated.

Welcome. Depends on the shop. Discount tire should give at most $50 per brand new tire, that was their offer to me. So $200. Nothing for the wheels. I sold, locally, each tire for $100 and each wheel for $100. I am sure I could have gone higher but I wanted a fast sell. I dont think the dealer would be any better. Some owners even keep the stockers to use as winter setups or other setups for different terrains or seasons. I don't go that route so I wanted to sell them. I would try and sell locally if you have a large enough market otherwise it may be difficult.
