If your taking about the 18' wheels from a Compass or Caliber there's no problem. If from another manufacturer then you'll need to check their specs and recommendations. There are so few tires of the correct size in 18" that you may want to think on it.

According to the specs those will fit and they do look nice IMO.

I have stock 18's on my Rallye - just make sure you get the right tire size as well and you're speedo shouldn't be off

That's stock on a Compass Limited. No problems there. What tire are you going with? Don't get the Firestone Firehawks! Anything listed here would work fine. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showt...=410134&page=6

the new Dodge Journey had 19" wheels available. you 'might' be able to use them, since it's based on the "JS" platform and the "JS's use the same bolt pattern as the "MK"s. but more info would be needed to be SURE!!!
