Provided you have the V6 no. If you have the towing package and the hemi you have heavy duty brakes which require the 18" wheels. To double check look to see if the rear disks are vented. If they are then you have the heavy duty brakes.

Yeah, I have the towing package too, and Hemi. I'm not sure if they are vented, unfortunately my Jeep sits and waits for me, I just left the country for four months, O how I miss her

Thanks loveracing1988

Loveracing, you are incorrect I'm sorry to say. 18" rims for that WK2. ORA2 incl towing package and unless he wants to get out a grinder 17" wheels are listed as a no go for a 2014 ltd (I have one)

Door sticker is 33# as noted. That seemed fine with stock tires, at 255 70 18 I find it rides harsh at anything over 31#. 35 to 40 would be brutal me thinks even in stock (35 maybe, 40 no way)

The towing package only includes heavy duty brakes if you have the hemi or the diesel unless they changed things for 2014. That is why I told him to double check. I still haven't seen it confirmed if the high trimmed v6's with the towing package come with the heavy duty brakes.

Ours only has the 17's but I have ran 40 pounds of air in them since we bought it and it still rides really good. I will be backing it down to 35 for the winter though.

2014 Jeep GC Limited Wheel Choices

So I just purchased a 2014 JGC Limited in white. I love it just want to change the wheels not feeling the stock 18's. How do you think black 20' altitudes will look with the white? or should I just upgrade to the overland 20's?

justforjeeps is pricey. You can get OEM accessory 18s from forum sponsor moparonlineparts.

For example: http://moparonlineparts.com/jeep-gra...27_52_357.html

You can also check their repair parts page for OEM. Code WPR are the 18s I think.

There is also OEM wheels on ebay.

If they fit the lower trims they fit a summit. It says right on there that they fit 2014's... any wheel will fit from model year 2011 to 2014 provided they will clear the brakes.

I think moparonline has a relatively new policy that if the VIN doesn't match their parts book they are not going to sell... but their parts book could wrong or incomplete. There is no difference between WK2 wheel fitment over the years 2011-2014. Some have HD brakes and need 18 or 20 in wheels, the SRT is a different animal.

It does say 2014 on the page you referenced, however. You may want to google the part number, see if anyone else has them.

(4) 20x9 SRT8 reps with Cooper Zeon LTZ in a 275/55/20

Got 1 pic on the rack during the alignment, and was dark by the time I got home. I'll have better pics in the morning.
