New Jeep - Aftermarket Wheels/Tires

Hi all, great site this is my first post. I am planning on picking up a 2013 5.7 Laredo X tomorrow and have a question. I would like to get new wheels (20's) and tires right away but am unsure the best way to do that. What would one do with the stock ones? Would a tire shop or someone buy them? Is this something that is best handled at the dealer as they may have better use for the stock stuff? Any advice appreciated.

Welcome. Depends on the shop. Discount tire should give at most $50 per brand new tire, that was their offer to me. So $200. Nothing for the wheels. I sold, locally, each tire for $100 and each wheel for $100. I am sure I could have gone higher but I wanted a fast sell. I dont think the dealer would be any better. Some owners even keep the stockers to use as winter setups or other setups for different terrains or seasons. I don't go that route so I wanted to sell them. I would try and sell locally if you have a large enough market otherwise it may be difficult.

Would -18 offset stick out really far? Looking at the 18x9 Addicts which I've found in 0 offset and -18

Actually -12 and +18 so I think I would probably go with the -12. Sorry I'm new to the WK2 stuff. Picked up my 2012 Overland yesterday. So excited

I posted a thread to the wheel and tire sizes thread about getting my Nitto Terra Grappler 275/55/20's installed. I'm not going to repost the full content but for those interested the post is here.

Just to shortcut, these are mounted on the stock rims with no spacers and the RRO leveling kit installed.

Oh, and I sold my originals (with 10k miles) on Craigslist for $275.

Wheel Options?

I just ordered a 2014 Black Overland, and Im thinking about replacing the wheels with the Lexani Lust. Thoughts or suggestions? I don't want to go with straight black wheels, so I thought two tone might be nice.

Two helpful tools for selecting wheels and tires. The first one will give you a pic of your vehicle with several wheels that fit. The second one is a fitment chart. You enter stock data in the left box and what you want to go to in the right box. It will give you approximations of what will fit. Nice tool.

Hi guys....I have a winter tire question. I went through this thread and a lot of good tires but I didn't see any winter tire related discussion.

Currently I have 265-50r20 OEM. Can you please suggest a good snow/ice tire? In Vancouver, BC it doesn't snow much but when it does it becomes slushy and very slippery. I drive a lot on the highway so would also like to keep the noise to a minimum. This year I am also planning to go up to the local mountains and maybe test the Jeep in some real snow and try skiing

Thx.

I have the blizzak DM-V1 in 255/55 20. I went a little narrower and taller for snows. I am a fan of blizzaks but there are a lot of guys that swear by Nokians. I don't think you would be disappointed with either.

I was doing my own research on winter tires, especially the two you mentioned and came across this video on Nokians. At 0:36 - to me it seemed like the truck they are showing with these tires on skidded but of course the editing was done and that part was cut. I thought it was funny. Anyways.....Blizzak has good reviews though.

I've run Blizzak DM-V1 for two winters now and have never been disappointed. Don't think I ever spun a wheel and dry road traction is adequate. They do get a little noisy on the highway and wear pretty quick if run much above 50 degrees. Several folks here run them in the winter.

For more all season with decent winter capability, I use Hankook DynaPro ATM RF10 on the liberty and Firestone Winterforce UVs on the WJ. Both excellent tires, dunno if they come in a size you like.

I have used Hankook on my CRV and was very impressed with it....no complaints at all.

Since I have never owned a true 4x4 so thought to ask what others used on their GCs in the real world. Other reviews also mentioned that Blizzak tend to get noisy and that is the only thing that is stopping me since I drive a lot on the highways.
