What about turning while flexing or going over an obstacle?

So Is anyone running big rims on the 14' with QL? Im looking into 24"s x 9.5" for the winter months here in Az. Im looking into a few that are 9.5" with a +18 offset with Backspace of 5.59".But if it was lets say -18 offset but with a 4.5" Backspacing, isn't that basically the same placing on the car, just a deeper rim? Or close too? The tire will be 285/35/24 and it is 31.89" tall. How far will it stick out of the fender? Im trying to get as flush as I can.......... Thanks peeps

Cool, I just got a hell of a deal on those wheels at the pa jeep show this past weekend. You think a 285/55-20 would fit?

I don't recommend a 285/55 r20 simply because of how tight the 275 was up front. Before installing the leveling kit I could not even get my hand inserted between the front of the wheel and the fender. I suspect that the 285s will rub constantly without a leveling kit and possibly even rub some with it.

Not sure if you're looking for another vote (and this really belongs in the wheel and tire thread) but I tried 285/55/20 and even with the lift and spacers they just didn't fit without rubbing somewhere. The 275/55/20's with a leveling kit and no spacers fit beautifully.

Thinking about getting some 275/65-18s on my 12 v6 overland with ql (seems to be the largest that will fit ql on stock rims?), top contender so far is the firestone destination a/t, anyone here go from stock ora2 Michelins to this tire? If so care to comment on any mpg changes, road noise, highway road handling differences and rain/snow? Would the larger size A/T give a noticeably smoother ride over destroyed pothole roads / speed bumps or make it seem sluggish on turns? Car sees mostly highway, pothole covered pavement and some 4x4 trails on road trips to CO, also plenty of snow in winter.

hey, so do you guys think a 22x9.5 will fit a 14' overland? It has a +15 offset but the back spacing is 5.84. So wouldnt the lower back spacing make up for the +15 offset? Wouldnt it be the same like if I went with a +30 offset and a 6.4" back spacing, just the +15 offset would have more of a lip, right?

265/65 r18 and they fit fine. Much better than the oe michelins that I barely milked 30k miles out of.
Are you still happy with the Cooper 265 65 18s?

What kind of backspacing on those rims, same as factory? I just got my 2013 GC Trailhawk and looking to change the tires as soon as this are done. Just need to know if I cna keep the same rims or do I need to get new ones.

I switched tires from the OEM 18" Michelins to 275/65/18's on my 12 GC Larado X that I had from a Navigator. I like the look and it seems to ride fine without any rubbing. I have not considered until now, the impact on the All-Wheel Drive system in the event of flat. I keep my stock spare tire. It appears the stock tire rotates 660.8 times per mile, while my new tires rotate only 628.8 times per mile. If I had a flat and replaced the flat with my spare would there be an impact to the drive system? If there is a flat should a deflate my tires to match the height of the spare or am I just over thinking this?

Not sure when the stability control or traction control would kick in, but if you have QT I there should not be any driveline issues. That is a completely open system but I wouldn't drive too far. QT II is not completely open. A few slow miles in an emergency is probably not going to hurt regardless, but don't use 4 low.

2014 JGC Limited takeoff wheels on 2014 JGC Summit 5.7

Hi guys

I'm just trying to confirm something before pulling the trigger. It's my understanding that I can go down from 20" to 18" on the 2014 JGC Summit 5.7.

I've found a good deal on a 2014 JGC Limited take off wheels and I wanna buy for a set of snow tires to use on the Summit, I've heard some issues regarding offsets on different wheels but I'm assuming both Jeeps should be structurally the same and I would have no issues using the Limited wheels on the Summit.

Am I correct? Is this as simple as just put the 18" wheels and drive kinda task?

Thank you!
