Aftermarket Tires & Rims??

Has anyone purchased aftermarket rims & tires for their 2011 Cherokee? If so, what size did you get? I was planning on purchasing a pair of black (most likely matte) 18 or 20 inch rims & tires to match. Had no idea what goes into buying rims (bolt pattern, offset, etc) I was under the impression (my own clueless-ness, I guess) that I could buy almost any kind of rim & tire combo that would physically fit. After a little research, I realized how wrong I was! Anyway, was curious if anyone picked up some rims for their 2011 & which ones. I wanted to get ATX Artillery Teflon Black or Ultra Gauntlet, thinking they would look sick. Unfortunately, doesn't look like either will fit (or so I've been told) so I'm back to looking...

Based on the bolt circle, anything that fits on a WK or JK will fit on a WK2. Backspacing is another issue, though. I'm not sure if the stock backspacing on the WK2 is the same as on those other Jeeps.

Re: Aftermarket Tires & Rims??

you need a positive offset of +30 to +50 or so. Take a look at the SRT reps....they would be sick IMO

Re: Aftermarket Tires & Rims??

it seems the higher offset of +50 looks the best on the 2011

Re: Aftermarket Tires & Rims??

yes, that additional 3/4" would tuck the wheels in a bit better.

Re: Aftermarket Tires & Rims??

yeah....seems like I read that the 2011's offset is like +58...which is really odd for SUV wheels

Re: Aftermarket Tires & Rims??

Anyone using 22's? Seems like it would look good if not being used off road much. Thoughts?

Re: Aftermarket Tires & Rims??

22's would work as long as you keep your OD around 28-32. just keep in mind rim width and offset/backspacing
