The recommended rim size for 275/65r18s is 18x7.5 to 18x10.5. Its close to an 11 inch wide tire, I don't think you would be happy with the squirm on anything less than a 8 inch rim.

Is 265/50-20 the widest tire that will fit (within specs) a 20x9 wheel? Or what tire size would work best to get a little more width for 9"?

20x9 to 20x11 is the recommended rim for a 295/20 width tire. A 265 tire is 7.5 to 10. I always find the tire a bit squirmy for my taste on the low side of rim width but for safety its OK.

http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp?item=Wheel-Tire is a good place to play with tire sizes and rim specs.

275/55 or 285/50 would be nice sizes for a 20x9. 265/50 is a bit on the skinny side.

WK2 Wheel and Tire fitment

I wanted to figure out some solid specs for the 2013 Laredo, no air suspension, stock height.

Maximum backspacing allowed: ?

Maximum tire size allowed, with or without minimal trimming: ?

I have the 17" stick alloy rims, and was looking at this tire/wheel package but am not sure what will and wont fit. Which is kind of a risk when ordering online.

http://www.quadratec.com/products/92...0X_P4_B_PG.htm

Specs:

265/70R17

17" X 9"

Back spacing: 4.5"

Also, what is the maximum size/width tire we can put on the stock rims?

Wheel Options?

I just ordered a 2014 Black Overland, and Im thinking about replacing the wheels with the Lexani Lust. Thoughts or suggestions? I don't want to go with straight black wheels, so I thought two tone might be nice.

Cant answer all of your questions but I was looking at the same set to beat on and have my 20's powder coated to keep it classy.

I had an online chat with a rep and he confirmed that these fit a stock Laredo WK2. They have 2 steel types to choose form and don't ship until mid April

I spoke to my dealer today, and they told me on 2014s they have to program tire and wheel size into the computer or it throws all kinds if computer errors. Anyone heard of this? They said they won't know if the 14 will allow bigger tires on the new computer? Seems strange to me, so how would it react with lifts etc.

2014s could be different but, unlike several other chrysler vehicles, all WK2 model OEM tires have the same diameter. Because there are no factory options, there has been no way to set a different tire size, doesn't show up in the test equipment menu. Tire factors on other chrysler vehicles could be adjusted, but since 2006 or so, only to a factory offered or factory approved tire size. Some tuners can set tire factors, however.

In other words, the factory says you should run only OEM sizes, so they don't bother giving the tech a set size feature.

I really like the KMC XD801's. I have searched the forum and can't find a similarly spec'd wheel being used. They are 18x9 5" backspacing 0 offset. I was planning on a 275/60 or a 265/65 with a mild tread pattern because Most of my off-road is sand. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance
