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

Whats the backspacing on the stock 18's or 20x8's? 5.7" or so?

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.

Hi guys....I have a winter tire question. I went through this thread and a lot of good tires but I didn't see any winter tire related discussion.

Currently I have 265-50r20 OEM. Can you please suggest a good snow/ice tire? In Vancouver, BC it doesn't snow much but when it does it becomes slushy and very slippery. I drive a lot on the highway so would also like to keep the noise to a minimum. This year I am also planning to go up to the local mountains and maybe test the Jeep in some real snow and try skiing

Thx.

I have the blizzak DM-V1 in 255/55 20. I went a little narrower and taller for snows. I am a fan of blizzaks but there are a lot of guys that swear by Nokians. I don't think you would be disappointed with either.

To answer my own question, yes they fit. Kinda.

Here are my notes for anyone thinking of an aggressive offset and a 32" tire with QL:

Park mode: No touching, but don't think about turning your wheel or you may rip off the front bumper. Would not reccomend driving at this height.

Normal: Tires kiss the inner fender felt shroud and front bumper at full tilt. I removed excess fendershroud and secured the rest with screws and washers to keep it against the body. No longer have issues at any speed and turning. I have pics if anyone is interested.

Offroad height 1 and 2: No issues

I was doing my own research on winter tires, especially the two you mentioned and came across this video on Nokians. At 0:36 - to me it seemed like the truck they are showing with these tires on skidded but of course the editing was done and that part was cut. I thought it was funny. Anyways.....Blizzak has good reviews though.

I've run Blizzak DM-V1 for two winters now and have never been disappointed. Don't think I ever spun a wheel and dry road traction is adequate. They do get a little noisy on the highway and wear pretty quick if run much above 50 degrees. Several folks here run them in the winter.

For more all season with decent winter capability, I use Hankook DynaPro ATM RF10 on the liberty and Firestone Winterforce UVs on the WJ. Both excellent tires, dunno if they come in a size you like.

I have used Hankook on my CRV and was very impressed with it....no complaints at all.

Since I have never owned a true 4x4 so thought to ask what others used on their GCs in the real world. Other reviews also mentioned that Blizzak tend to get noisy and that is the only thing that is stopping me since I drive a lot on the highways.

Does anyone know if they changed the offsets or anything on the 2014 GC from the 2013? I am pretty sure they didn't but I'd love to confirm before I buy those overland wheels/tires off of ebay.

Also, do you guys use a Procal or anything to bypass the TPMS sensors? Or do you put TPMS sensors on your new setups? Thanks
