Big Type O on my part, I meant the 275/65/18 just for kicks, (not the 275/75) but I will probably buy the 265/65/18 anyway. I am curious about the power loss as well, but Kolak mentioned to me that a superchip is coming....so.....

Anyone have QL with the 32" tires (275/65/18's)? I am leaning towards that size myself. I would love to see some pictures.

My understanding is that 275/60/R18 is the largest that will fit.

great set up guys! I would love to see some more pictures. Anyone else tried to stuff big tires under a QL. I am just about ready to pull the trigger.

I have the ORAII package w/ the 18" painted wheels (not a big fan). Anyone considering sizing down to 17" and trying a 275 70 17 tire? That's about 3mm taller than the 275 65 18.
If someone was going to run a 275 tire, how much do you think an aftermarket wheel that poked out a bit more fit? Say about an extra 1" pushed out.... more likely to rub the fender when suspension is compressed and wheels are turned to lock? Do you think it would be a safe bet to just stay with the 265?

Sounds like stock wheels on the Laredo E Base model are 17x8 with 245 70 17.
Sadly I like the stock 17" wheel more than the 18" painted wheel w/ the ORAII package. And the Michelin Latitudes that come on those wheels... .ugh.... Off-Road? Really Jeep?

WK2 Grand with Dodge Challenger wheels

I did this mock up in Photoshop of a WK2 with Dodge Challenger wheels almost a year ago because I thought it would look great on the real thing and wanted to see. Now I'm sharing this with you. I think with the right tires they'd look pretty badass on road or off. What do you think? Has anyone tried this? Will the Challenger rims fit the WK2 bolt pattern?

That does look pretty nice. The bolt pattern is 5 on 5 IIRC. I am not sure what size lug it is, or what the offset is, but... if it would fit, that would be awesome. Tires look a tad too small. I am personally a fan of the Overland 20"s myself.

looks nice indeed.
I think the stock 20' wheels are very cool though

IMO the Jeep 20" wheels make the challenger ones look BORING.

Just wondering if anyone one of you guys with the 32"s think that a 33" would fit? Hard to tell from pictures.

The tire shop that I used looked into this and it was clear to them that a 33 would not fit. You could probably get by with one if spacers were installed but they advised that a 32 was the safe and sure tire size.

Looks pretty good although as everyone has said the Overland 20" rims still look the best.

I think they look good. Not great for off road, but I look at that image and think "SRT8 WK2".
