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

Those 0 offset wheels will push the tires out 2 1/4 inches from OEM. You could have some fender clearance issues.

The sticky below has most of the wheel specs. OEMs have +56 offset, 6 1/4 in backspacing... think front wheel drive vehicles.

I assume these wheels would work with stock tires, but would they fit on an Overland with the Srt8 Tires?

Two helpful tools for selecting wheels and tires. The first one will give you a pic of your vehicle with several wheels that fit. The second one is a fitment chart. You enter stock data in the left box and what you want to go to in the right box. It will give you approximations of what will fit. Nice tool.

I have ordered a set of wheels and I am unsure if they will fit considering all the reasearch I have done, as far as fender clearance, offset, and caliper clearance.

2011 Jeep GC Overland Summit Hemi, with Quadra-Lift
Wheel setup: Fuel Hostage Chrome, 18x9, 20ET, 5.8" backspace
Tire setup: Nitto Terra Grappler, 275/65/18

Does any one have any input or experience with a simular setup? Im specifically concerned about the low offset and clearing the Hemi calipers. The wheels are on back order so they are not available for a test fit.
