2011 20" GC Overland Rims on an 05 GC?

I found an insane deal on a set of rims just pulled off a 2011 JGC Overland... They are the 20-inch Satin Carbon Painted Cast Aluminum Wheels. Too good of a deal to pass up. http://bit.ly/myW8Wg

I have a 2005 JGC Limited 5.7... Am I going to have any trouble having these 20-inch rims on my 2005? Do you have any recommendations for tires? I need an all weather tire.

Will I deal with any rub with this big of a rim?

I'd appreciate any expert advice.

Thanks for your time!

Doesn't the SRT WK run 20's? What you need to be more concerned about is the backspacing. Not sure if the WK and WK2 are the same.

Replied in the other forum, but here it is again. These rims need spacers to work on the WK. They are a half inch wider. With the offset 50.8mm vs wk offset of 56.4mm, most of the half inch width difference is to the inside. I'm running 16mm spacers with longer studs on the front with 265/50/20 Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza. Only had them for a month or so and like them pretty well; I don't do much offroading though. Even with the spacers, the bolt is very close. Haven't got any pics of the clearacne, but here are a couple of pics of the wheels on the Jeep if anyone wants to see what they look like.

Im thinking of doing the same thing buying a set of these and wrapping them with Toyo a/t . Ive got a set of 1.5 inch spacers. What do you think about that set up. I also have a rock crawler lift in mine.
