Looking for anyone with black 20's on an Overland. My stock wheels have taken a beating from the previous owner and I want a change from hyper-silver to black.

Thanks in advance.

Just a little warning on the 2014 grands. Received my wheel and tire package from OE Wheels and the aftermarket TPMS do not work. Can't get the warning light off. So far they can't figure it out.

I just checked my dash pressure readouts and they are right on. I never even noticed a tpms light on from the beginning. Which rims did you get.

Not sure if this worked. I dont think it handles as nice as the 18's

Did you stop by a tire shop to check if the TPMS sensors are working and at the correct frequency for the WK2? Discount tire accidentally sent me the wrong frequency once (another vehicle). Otherwise the forum is full of aftermarket TPMS failures, seems the system likes OEM sensors.

biggest and widest tires I can go

Hi I put on XD Crank 18x9 0 offset on my car with the RRO lift kit. I'm wondering whats the biggest and widest tires I can run on my car? right now I have 255/70/18 which comes out to 32.1x10 I'm trying to see if I can fit like 305/65R18 which is 33.6x12. has anyone tried it or have a idea if they will fit???

So you should be real safe with 275 65 18 though that is about the same OD and a bit wider tahn what you have now. 33.6 OD sounds pretty extreme, the only way to know is to mount one up.

what about 285 65 18 ? That would get you close to a 33" tire but not too close . Is this for looks or Offroad?

My guess is 32.5 or so or a bit over is about as big as you will want to go OD for a few reasons

I'm trying to figure out whats the most I could go in width mainly. I'm pretty sure i can run 33" no problems it's just i donno how wide i can go and I also don't want to waste money on trying different tires out. this is for looks and offroad use. I want it wider so I can have better grip on the roads. depending what size I can go I plan on getting the nitto terra grappler or trail grapplers. I also don't mind 295/70R18 or 305/60R18 just wondering if anyone tried these tires yet?


has anyone tried anything 12" wide??

Have you read these threads, in their entirety, regarding sizing?

I have read the whole threads and I have seen people run 10.83 wide I just haven't seen anyone run 11.5 or 12 wide with the RRO 2.5 lift thats the main thing I'm thinkg to figure out before I have to do trial and error....

After doing a lot of research, I ordered Toyo Open Country AT2s in a 265/65/18 for my 2011 Laredo X. While my Jeep was at the tire shop I strolled down the road for a cold Oktoberfest. As I was enjoying my tall, frosty, fall beverage the shop called me and said there was a problem... I went back to the shop and they had the old Lattitudes standing up next to the Toyos, and told me there was no way they would fit w/o rubbing. I tried to convince them that they would fit and they came back with the "look we do this for a living, we see this all the time, etc..." I told them to slap them, and to stop giving me lip (kidding, I said please). Long story short, the tires are on and there is ZERO RUBBING - in fact, not even close. Mathilde loves her new sneakers, and she's happy that she looks much tougher w/o the junk Michelins. Thanks so much for the folks here on Jeepforum who gave me the confidence to go against the "professionals" and put on rubber that I knew would fit. Cheers!!
