I believe only the V8's get the HD brakes....more weight and power needs more stopping power. Not sure on the 2014 models though so I would check a couple sources to be sure.

If your rear brake rotors are vented, you have HD brakes. If solid then std brakes. So look at the edge and if it looks like two rotors with a vented sandwich, then they are vented. I posted a drawing awhile ago, I'll see if I can dig it up.

Unless there has been a recent running change, none of the Laredos have HD brakes (vented rears), just the Limited and Overland V8s.

Sac - Jeep looks good. Throw some RRO lift photos up when you get it done if you don't mind.

Are you putting it on or having it done?

Thank you, I will check it out. I have a limited so prob a no go. I also looked yesterday and the clearance to the inside of the current 18's is pretty tight?

I appreciate the help!!

Hi guys....what is the difference between the two quotes given to me? As much as I like Sac01's tires.....I need to make sure I have good tires both on snow & ice. If I ever get stuck....then it won't be easy for me to just walk out of the truck and start shoveling.

First quote is: $2,111.32
Second quote is: 2,320.72
Difference: $209.40

The guy is aware of my disability so that is why he suggested these two tires. I do trust the guy but I still wanted to know if anyone can explain the difference or has these tires. By the way....he said these are two different tires but I don't see the difference other than the price.

I have never used these winter tires so can't comment on them. But do you really need a dedicated set of winters on your wk2 in vancouver? Unless you're traveling to the interior or whistler often.

Maybe go with the bfg at, I believe some of them have the snow stamp.

Also- maybe make a trip to discount tire in washington- I paid less than your quotes for my procomps and duractracs in the states

You are correct for the most part and your perception of Vancouver snow is understandable. If you were to read this article it will tell you why winter tires are important in Vancouver. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe...rticle4181134/

I travel at least 100 KMs a day to/from work - both city and highway. It doesn't snow as much in Vancouver but turns into "Greasy snow" fast. I consider myself a good driver and I have gotten by with all season tires but this year I plan to travel to couple of mountains at least and couple of trips to interior this winter. So just preparing myself.

I am not surprised that you paid less than the quotes I was given.....I was considering traveling south of the border too actually. Since this guy is sort like a friend so thought to give him the business if the difference was less than $200-$300.

I have no idea what brand of tire that quote is for but if you are looking for a winter package in stock sizes look at http://www.tirerack.com/cart/Holding...esMounted=tpms This is for OEM size tires in the Bridgestone Blizzak, a nice looking 18x8" wheel and the TPMS sensors. Around $1550 USD +shipping. They come mounted and balanced. I have never had a problem with Tire Rack,

OK one is a Hankook and one is a Toyo. Both seem to be pretty highly rated. Most of the people here seem to like either the Nokians or Blizzaks. I have owned several sets of Blizzaks and love them.

Has there been any conclusions about the biggest tires you can put on a QL WK2.

I see no issue with 265/65/18

I cannot do 17" wheels d/t brakes

I am considering 275/65/18 with < factory offset rim or spacer

I put 275/55/20 GY Silent Armor on Boss 335B with +25 offset instead of the +54 offset of the OEM rims on my wife's Overland last May. It's just scrubs the felt going lock to lock, no one drives like that unless they're drifting so I think it's OK. We havnt had any issues in a year. It has QL. The odometer is out 4%, not a big deal. A 275/65/18 of the same brand will be .2" taller.
