2015 Overland wheels and tire swap

So we upgraded from a 2014 Laredo to a 2015 Overland. It was well worth the upgrade in vehicle, the Laredo is literally stripped from any sort of feature which makes the Grand Cherokee... Grand. the Overland is so far one of the nicest vehicles I've came across, it is a well balanced vehicle from the looks to the luxury, definitely pleased with our decision. So the one thing I don't like about any produced vehicle is the rims and tires. for the Laredo I bought SRT replicas 22x10 with 305/35 22 tires. I kept the rims and tires and now have moved them to the Overland. I love the look, however, after a day of installing have noticed so odd driving habits. The air suspension is great so I am not noticing any difference over bumps, it is just the overall driving seems a bit wobbly or floaty even when cruising at the same speed. It is hard to explain but it just feels maybe more bouncy. the air suspension still works fine, automatically lowering and adjusting itself, that is still working like normal.

Has anyone else upgraded their wheels on their Overland if so has any of this been noticed or any ideas what could be going on here?

Thanks in advance!

Subscribing because I'm looking at upsizing to 22's.

The look is much better with 22s. I think I'm having the issues because of the wear pattern, they hadn't been rotated this install was the first rotation I think I'm getting bounce because the wear pattern needs to even out.

Hey I have a 2014 overland and was wondering if you did the 305 35 22 all around and if you had any problems with rubbing?

Re: 2015 Overland wheels and tire swap

Yes Also I just thought of it, when you switched to different size rims and tires, you need to recalibrate the speedometer, tire pressure sensor, and alignment. All of these do affect ride quality. Now my main concern is that in your pictures you don't have spacers, HTF aren't these babies rubbing with 305??? I just bought the srt8 vapor edition with color matching paint and 295/40's and am scared it will rub, spacers on these vehicles in my opinion makes it look cheesy. I do like how your wheels look flush with the fender. I see someone else has questions about rubbing, let us know brotha!

You shouldn't have to recalibrate your speedo since the overall diameter going from stock 20's to the 305-35-22's is almost identical.

Regarding rubbing, I can't speak from personal experience. Only the guys who've done it can....but from what I gather, it all has to do with the offset of the SRT wheels vs stock. There are some guys on the forum have even gone with 305-40-22's which are even taller in diameter. They all report no rubbing.

Re: 2015 Overland wheels and tire swap

Ya I was just hesitant to mount mine until I see what others have done. I hate if a tire is mounted the company/ies won't allow returns. Only way to test is to mount at least one lol. I do know the rears won't have rubbing, but my thought was only the arm on the front suspension which seemed it would. Also from going from stock 265/r20/22 to a wider wheel and tire I do know from experience we need to get speedometer recalibrated. It will be off by like 2.5mph at 65, and approx. 3.5 at 90mph given the normal tire calculators that are out there.

I do see people reporting no rubbing but just want to make sure because fatties look better than thin wheels lol.

Re: 2015 Overland wheels and tire swap

I upgraded a 2014 Limited with 18" Snows and to a 2015 Overland with the same RIMs and Snows and Ride wise it feels exactly the same.


Might be the 22" reveal the differences more.

Re: 2015 Overland wheels and tire swap

I ran a set of 22x 9.5" rims with a +54 offset on 285/45/22's last summer and it drove just fine (2014 Grand cherokee)

but the tire is 32" tall...which means it rubs a little on the very front of the wheel well when I turn and hit a hard bump...I was able to modify the inner well so it no longer rubbed...it's not the width of the tire you need to worry about...it's the height of the tire ...I wouldn't go larger than a 31.5" tire


here's a close up of this setup

No issues with rubbing actually there is a decent amount of space. We've been driving now for about 2500 miles ride is definitely back to normal now I no longer feel any of the first issues I was experiencing. And no need to adjust speedometer the diameter of the stock tire compared to the aftermarket is almost exactly the same. For me the rear side angle is the best way to look at the jeep because you can see the width of the tires and that sit in line with the body of the vehicle not tucked like the stock look which I can't stand.

Are those two photos at normal height or is that in park mode?

Can you post any other photos?
