I think I has posted that on the other wheel thread. I found it to be the best by far.

So with stock set up what would be the largest height tire I can run? I have 17 inch wheels on a 4x4 laredo,A few tires I have looked at are 31.6-31.8 tall. I like the cooper st max, 31.85 and general grabber at2 235/80/17 are 31.8 and the 265/70/17 31.6

Thanks

I have 255/70/r17 on mine. They are on JK 17s. I had to grind on the calipers a little bit to make the front two fit. I think I have the HD claipers on mine, but with a little bit of Plastic dip they look great. What do you all think?

Ok folks,

Been through the search function and a number of other places; can't seem to find an answer. Will the stock Michelin tires on the spare rim fit in the spare well in the back? I have confirmed a couple other sizes looking at threads but not the stock (260/65/18, I think). I think the tires that I have found that will fit are larger than the stock, but just wanted confirmation. I am Planning on replacing the poor quality spare (much smaller) with one of the stock tires. Ordered 4 265/65/18 Firestone A/Ts today after research on here.

I have my stock tires 255/70/17 that fits barely, if any wider than 255 the floor cover for the spare well tire will not be flush

Is this the right area - SRT

I picked up my 2014 SRT yesterday.

I love it so far.

I want to ask about winter rims.

Am I in the right place?

I was informed by my dealership that I have to stick with 20" rims. Is this true? I know that the brake calipers are much bigger but I would like to put on 18s if I can.

I suspect that you will indeed have to stay with 20's due to the large brakes on the SRT. I don't think the smaller rims will clear them.

Can anyone confirm that the nitto terra grappler 275/55/20 will fit in my 2012 v6 with no rubbing or issues? I have run some searches and it appears people are running this size in stock form (no leveling or lift), but my local wheel shop has concerns that they will rub. I just wanted to check here before pulling the trigger. Thanks!

I put 275x55x20 on my 2012 Limited (no Quadra-lift, stock wheels) without rubbing anywhere BUT I had previously installed the RRO Leveling Kit. I have pictures posted in another thread that show the fit so you could review them if that would help.

My guess is that they will fit the wheel opening that way but they may start scuffing the liner - even the stock tires get pretty close to that.

I photoshopped these wheels on mine. I picked up a set off a Wrangler Sahara. Not sure if I like them or what size tires I could get away with.

The 18s all suck. I'd love to put a set of the 2013 black 17" Rubicon wheels on, but I got the big brakes. I can find any info on spacers + 17s + big brakes either, cause if that works, it's a done deal.

I think they're pretty cool wheels, kinda different. I still can't believe they don't give us a real spare wheel with the wk2s
