I looked over every page but could have easily overlooked it, but whats a safe size for stock height non QL? 265/65/18? Or am I better of just running stock size? not looking to lift this one or do any trimming.

Anyone had any luck finding a single stock 18" rim for the 2014 JGC?

Part # is 1VH40DD5AB

I don't need a set of 4, but I'd like one for a full size spare.

Need help with fitment

I've looked through the wheel and tire threads and I thought I was good. I want to put BFG All Terrains 275/65R18 with 18" Moto Metal 951 wheels. The wheels have a +18 offset which seems like it should work. The guy at America's Tire tells me they won't fit that they will rub and that I need at least a +26 offset. Can anyone please help with this?

BFGs might have slightly different measurements than my Duratracs and you may not have the same suspension but my 275/65r18s fit fine with a stock offset. It is tight in the rear wheel wells but no rub, they guy installing them at Americas tire called me into the shop while he was installing them and told me he thought they were going to rub. They didn't rub. If your offset is anything further outside than stock you should be ok. My GC is a 2014 with quadralift suspension.

Wraab, as far as a full size spare goes, you can fit a full height spare but a 265 wide tire doesn't fit under my spare tire cover. The stock spare is not full width either, it is a 245. I squeezed a 255/70r18 all terrain spare under the cover to match the height of my 275/65r18 Duratracs, didn't look like any wider than 255 would fit.

Has anyone put 265/70 18 on their rig? I am looking at the general grabber's and from what i've read, 32's fit, but it looks like the 265/70 18 is about 32.65. They're for my girl's wk2 so I don't want any rubbing or anything...

I've done quite a bit searching and having a hard time finding an answer. I'm running P245/70R17 all stock and was wondering if I could run P265/70R17 without any rubbing? I don't have a lift or a leveling kit currently, but I'm considering the RRO level Kit.

Thanks man!

The thread goes into detail on when things happened. I suggest starting on page one and see the index for what you wanna do. I have it all sorted out. I only drove it for a day or two going on the highway and country roads I did not experience any issues. I factory ordered mine just so I could get the color. Nobody in southern Texas had it. if you have specific questions ask it in my thread in case other readers need the same answer, if ya don't mind.

I have a tire question

I have read on this forum that the 275/65/18 tires will or should fit with quadra lift
Our jeep is a trailhawk edition using the hemi so I have the big brakes and the 18 inch wheel

I am wanting the mt series tire, and the wife wants to keep this stock wheel if possible so I searched and with what everyone is saying a ktr Kevlar in a 275/65/18 is going to fit with possible issues in the lowest setting that we do not use when parking.

I am going to make this purchase but wanted one last confirmation. Unless it is easier to move up to a 20 inch wheel.

Can someone steer us the right way?

I checked their site and they don't have it (online). I guess I can drop them a line and ask.

Thanks! Yeah I saw your post earlier about the spare.
