Does anyone know if they changed the offsets or anything on the 2014 GC from the 2013? I am pretty sure they didn't but I'd love to confirm before I buy those overland wheels/tires off of ebay.

Also, do you guys use a Procal or anything to bypass the TPMS sensors? Or do you put TPMS sensors on your new setups? Thanks

I think I really want to buy some 17-18" wheels and some slightly more off-road oriented tires (I will spend 95% of time on road, so I appreciate something quiet and that wears well). I checked tires.com and tirerack.com, and they don't list many wheel options for this model. Does 2013 GC come with a funky bolt pattern or something?.
Not a funky bolt pattern but the offset is large, front wheel drive territory.

If you have HD brakes, 17s will not clear the caliber.

There is a parts for sale section of the forum classified section.

Is this the right area - SRT

I picked up my 2014 SRT yesterday.

I love it so far.

I want to ask about winter rims.

Am I in the right place?

I was informed by my dealership that I have to stick with 20" rims. Is this true? I know that the brake calipers are much bigger but I would like to put on 18s if I can.

I suspect that you will indeed have to stay with 20's due to the large brakes on the SRT. I don't think the smaller rims will clear them.

Tire input needed

I bought a set of 20x9 srt aftermarket rims and I'm looking to buy the cooper or Hankook tires in the size of 275/45/20 to put on my 2012 Jeep Grand cherokee laredo x. I have a separate set of winter tires on my old 18 inch rims and don't need winter performance out of the tires I'm buying.

Now before I get too many negative comments I like to share with everyone that my buddy has the same Jeep Cherokee and actually put on 20x10 srt aftermarket rims with 285/50/20 Michelin tires on it. I thought he is totally nuts, but these wheels and tires actually fit and there was enough space around the wheel wells and they look awesome. Personally I think 20x9 is large enough with 275's on it. Any thoughts or comments regarding tire choices?

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.

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!

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
