18" wheels on a standard Laredo?

Getting ready to order are new GC Laredo tomorrow. We are not really needing all the bells and whistles that comes on the "X" but I do prefer the look of the 18 inch wheel. Is the 18 inch wheel something we can add as a option on the standard Laredo?

Thanks, hound

Ermm...I'm sure you can make a deal to have the 18" wheels instead of the stock 17". I prefer the stock 17" to be honest, the 18" look "painted" :P

The 17" are painted as well. I would just get a set of aftermarket rims and tires, probably cheaper and your rims will be different than other JGC's.

Just got back from the dealer, and the answer is yes and no. Yes, you can get a 20 inch wheel option which also includes NAV and other upgrades totaling over 2K For me to get the 18's I would need to go to the X package so I might go for aftermarket down the road. Thanks for the responses

I'm sure there's plenty of X owners that want to sell their stock 18"s. Look on ebay or the "black market" section (not sure if this forum has one; never looked).
