New Compass Owner
 
Hello All,

I just bought my first jeep for my wife. We picked up a 2010 Compass and are loving the car.

I wanted to know if anyone on the Forums knows if the 20inch Cherokee SRT8 wheels fit the Compass?

Thanks!

Congrats on the Compass. On July 18th, got my wife a 2012 model. We are also loving it.

The front wheels will fit, if barely. According to this thread (thank you Gramps), about the largest tire/wheel combo you can get onto a compass is a 29" or 29.5". The front 2010 SRT8 wheels are 29 inch wheels/tires overall, so they may fit. The rear SRT8 wheels are a different size, and are 30 inches. They may not fit, as thats a bit big.

Keep in mind... this is a comparison of the overall diameter, not the bolt pattern, rim, how the brakes would take the extra abuse of a 20" wheel, etc. etc.

Just for the fun of it I tried my wife's 2006 GC wheels on my lifted Compass. The bolt pattern was fine but the off-set was wrong and the tires wouldn't go.

Thank you all for the feedback... Ive looked everything for a picture to see if I see one and all I have found is a special edition version from somewhere in europe I believe...

Anyone got any ideas for me would be great I want to go with that sporty SRT 8 look suggestion on wheels.

Thanks,

Chris

Fun doesn't always equal success. This was more of the enlightening kind of fun even if disappointing.
