Nope. Early build 2011 Overland that didn't have QL.
It hasn't rubbed on anything that I've heard.

I took what mchassler did in post #32 and added a little more information.

The dark gray boxes highlighted are Stock sizes. I only know the stock FULL SIZE SPARE that I can confirm is in my Overland Summit (should be the same in all Overland's). I can upgrade it if you have the other spare sizes. I also didn't include the 17" rims either.

It looks good though. When I get to my computer ill move it to the first post so it's easier to see.

Sent from my underground lair.
I updated the pic.

*I didn't choose any tire sizes (Diameter) too much less than 30.50 inches as that would be counter productive in almost any tire choice decision.

**I still don't know any of the other spare tire sizes**

How's this on a '12 Overland with QL?

Looking at picking up 5 2013 Wrangler Sahara 18" wheels and putting 265/65/18 Goodyear SilentArmor tires on them. I'll put them on when needed and plan to put the spare in the back too.

I will mostly be doing beach, fireroad and snow here in Northern Cali. No major rock crawling.

I will be on the highway so aero mode should work without rubbing. No real need for park mode.

Will these rub in any of the different QL modes? I've read through the thread and it looks like the answer is No, they should be good. The unknown for me is wheels. I can't find info on the specs: offset, etc for them.

Just looking for some input before I pull the trigger.

Thanks!

24's on the wk2 overland

Hey Guys, Ok so I am thinking of getting a set of 24's for the fall-spring season. I live in Az and we only use the 4x4 during the summer season for the boat and jet skis and ill use the factory wheels for that. I see some people have put 24's on the srt8's but wanted to know if it will fit our 14' overland? So for the one's out there that know if they will fit with the Qudra-Lift suspension please let me know your thoughts. I do not care to hear from you guys that think its still or ugly or rough ride or etc. Its my 50k Jeep and i will do as I please. I just would like to hear from the people that know about the suspension and the fitment. I was thinking 255-275 and 30-40 series. Here is a picture of kind of the direction I am thinking...... thanks for the help guys

I am in a similar situation and there seems to be some variable opinion about 25/65/18 on here. My guess is that as long as those new rims are factory offset or wider stance than that you should be ok

If you look in the Wheel Encyclopedia thread the OEM 18" wheel is:
18 x 7.5 with a 44.45 offset. I have a set in a shed and that's what's stamped on them. They are or an 07 Wrangler. You can use this info on the calculator on RimsNTires or similar site for figment info.

Thanks - after much searching I did finally find the offset. I still had a concern about fitting the HD brakes without touching and it appears it should fit.

I went ahead and bought the five I found on CL - it was a great deal IMHO at $265 for all 5. They are brand new, owner took tires off at 140 miles to put on other rims.

Ok - so I fit them on the WK2 and they fit with barely enough space for the brakes (see pics). Any concerns? Seems really tight but there is no contact.

Next decision is which tire and size. I will probably go with the 265/65/18 because I'm concerned about rubbing on the nut above the wheel and possibly the inside of the wheel wells at full turn with anything bigger. However, these wheels, having a 44.45 offset vs 56.4 should stick out further and not be so close to the suspension components (there is less backspace on the 18s (6") than on the 20s (6.7) - both with 265s). Am I understanding this correctly?

If I went with a 275/65 I'd have more selection in tire but the overall width would go from 10.4" (for 265 tire) to 10.8" (for 275 tire). I'm concerned about rubbing. I read through the tire threads and it looks like some people are fine and others have rubbing.

Anyone with 18x7.5" Wrangler wheels able to comment? I have a '12 Overland V8 with QL so would like to know if there is any rubbing in aero and park mods.

Also looking for recommendations on tires. Leaning towards Goodyear SilentArmors if I go with 265. If I go up to 275 it opens up the field by quite a bit. Any recommendations on tire (mild offroad like fire roads, beach and snow in the winter)?

And now the pics...

Pic five shows a sliver of light from the backside of the wheel (looking from from the front). You can see how tight the brake is inside the wheel.

Here is something very different

I changed my wheels, bought SRT rims on E-bay, 20X9, changed my tire size to 275/45/20. My 2012 Grand Cherokee handling characteristics improved tremendeosly. Excellent handling on curvy mountain roads. Replaced my Goodyear Fontera's with Coopers HP plus tires and I felt an instant improvement on dry and wet pavement. I really love the change I made

Updated pics

Just wanted to post updated pics of my setup with the RRO leveling kit installed. Leaves plenty of clearance now for my 275/55r20 setup. The tires would barely rub on some big dips in the highway but now no issues at all.

Updated pics

Sharing some update pics of my setup with 275/55r20's with RRO Leveling Kit installed. Gives needed clearance up front where tires would slightly rub on some big dips in the highway...it did fine over abrumpt bumps but those dips in the highway at speed would cause the outer edge of right tire to barely nip the felt liner just inside the black fender trim. All is well now...
