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.

need some wheel alternatives... jk wheels?

I tried searching but i'm failing....

my wife has a '11 wk2 with the 70th anniversary package and 20" wheels. her tires are going to be about 50-60% in the back and 60-70% up front this winter... i'm not all that crazy about letting her run in the snow/ice with them that thin but i'm having trouble replacing them when they have that much life left in them.

i'm contemplating buying dedicated snow tires for it but was debating on having them put on the 20" wheels or grabbing another set of wheels for snows. I didn't know if JK wheels fit. They're plentiful and relatively cheap. and the 16" steel ones are super cheap (if not free).

just looking for input. thanks guys!

Has anyone seen a 2014 on Robby Gordon Signature Series Wheel, would they actually fit?

Thanks

so I found some wheels/tires off a '13 jk sahara (which is a nice looking wheel). will they fit without quadralift? I have a regular 70th anniversary with the standard suspension.

thanks!

Two words: Brake Clearance. If you have the "regular" brakes on your JGC, you can run 17" wheels, but if you have the "heavy duty" brakes your minimum is 18" wheels.

V6's only have standard brakes. V8's have HD brakes in limited and above trims for the 11 to 13's.

Bump.

I picked up a 2014 GC Summit HEMI. Anyone know if the wheels I mentioned will work or not? They are 20x9, 5 on 5 bolt pattern. 4.5" bs. Hub centric for wrangler Jk. Also, can I reuse the 20" tires off the Summit?

The specs are as follows:
20x9 -12mm offset (4.5" backspacing) wheel

Would these fit or stick out TOO much?

Thanks in advance!
Jeff

After much deliberation over all terrain TIRES, both the friendly Sears folks and I agreed today the Michelin LTX ATs were the right choice!

I really like the LTX AT2's tread - - not to shabby and looks good for OEM size 265/60/R18! Over $400 in rebates and purchase rewards from Sears yesterday.

255 / 70 / 18

Why arent more folks running 255 / 70 / 18 ? I did a search and only folks who are running 275/65/18 mention that size as a spare, why not as a running size? according to the math it is the same diameter as a 275 65 18 but of course skinnier (skinnier than stock actually) so less concern over clearance issues?

I have a '14 Ltd with 18" rims
