My two cents... I switched to Nitto Terra Grapplers after one years/10k miles. They are an AT tire but handle really well on the road. I haven't spent any appreciable time offroad but the snow/ice performance was great. I went a bit larger than stock but Nitto makes stock sizes as well.

I looked at the other common tires but I'm happy with my choice. If I was to do it again I would choose a MT but that's for my reasons. I'll just say that I like the Nittos alot.

I've had good luck with Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor out west.

Have taken my Jeep out into the desert with some deep sand and also minor rock crawling and these tires are exceptional.

2013 Rubicon wheels on 2011 WK2

I'm really looking to get black wheels for my '11 stone white Laredo and I'm thinking that the 10th anniversary Rubicon wheels would look pretty good..but will they fit without modifications?

Just mounted yesterday. I washed her last night and took pics today. 20X9 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Chrome Replicas. What do you think?

Installed my 20" Nittos and 20X9 Black Sabis

Retrieved the new tires and wheels from DiscountTireDirect's warehouse and installed them last week.

Tires are Nitto NT421Qs, their new premium, all-season, hi-performance SUV/sporttruck tire, and they're made in the U.S. of A.!
http://www.nittotire.com/Tire/nt421q

These are 275/55-20s, which, when I was helping loading and then unloading and rolling them around the garage, seemed huge. At almost 32" OD, they are c. 1-1/2" larger than the originals, but they seemed merely heavy…very heavy…as I was installing them. [I bought Nitto Motivos (also made in USA) last year for my Escape and am very happy with them.]
Wheels are 20X9" Black Rino Sabis…
http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...w=9&vid=020081
…which, I just discovered, will fit over the 15" front rotors and 6-piston calipers from the Grandokee SRT8, if I'm ever so inclined.

All hardware including 22 locking nuts was included. I also had new tire-pressure sensors installed so I didn't have to 'steal' the old ones from the original wheels.




The additional 1" of wheel width is pushed out instead of in, so the stance of the vehicle is a little wider and more aggressive, which I like.




The tires are at least as quiet as the original Michelins and seem to ride well, too. I'm happy. :-)

OE Wheels inc.

Has anyone ordered from this company. And if so, are you familiar with the black chrome rims? Thanks

The outfit has been around for awhile. I purchased my TPMS sensors from them in 2011.

Quality and service is great. Got the wheel and tire package from OE Wheels through Ebay. Paid $1525 for everything........tires, wheels, tpms sensors, center caps and shipping.

2014 GC Laredo Wheel Upgrade Questions

I'm the new owner of a 2014 GC Laredo and looking to upgrade to some of the aftermarket SRT Replica wheels. All of the ads I am seeing say that they fit up to 2012 or 2013 - will these still fit the 2014s?

5x5" / 5x127mm bolt pattern

Also 9" width or 10" width - which is the best way to go?

Last question - can I have the tire pressure sensor removed from my current tires and put in the new ones?

Thanks!

Brandon

JK Takeoffs - 15k Mi Review

Just wanted to share my experiences running JK Sahara wheels and tires for over a year now.... Awesome!

I've had no rubbing or steering issues, no noticable decrease in MPG or power, and I've gotten more than a few comments along the lines of "big rubber on that Jeep!"

If you find a good deal on Wrangler JK take-offs (I got all 5 for $400) don't hesitate to make your WK2 a little different than the masses!

My GC came with Michelin Latitude tours. P265 60r 18s. I have been reading about folks going up to a P275 for the wider look. Does anyone have any experience with upping the tire width on stock rims? Will it adversely affect safety and handling?

The lug pattern is still the same, I am not sure on the width, but that depends on what tire size you are looking at. The sensors can be removed from yours and put in the new ones, they are attached to the valve stems I believe.

They're also available from NAPA for like $30 each.
