Been pondering if I should get some better looking rims for my Duratracs I' m running as my winter tires.
Saw these on a rig at the dealers.....whatch think?

Re: alternate rims

Those wheels are made by Replika, parent company is Fastco out of Quebec.


Decent quality wheel for the price. I've got Replika's for my wife winter set on her 435i.

Re: alternate rims

So I checked out the Replika wheels site and it seems they come in 20" while my Overland has 18"
so I have also found these rims from Mopar.

Re: alternate rims

Do you already have the Duratracs & are they 18's?


If not, then I'd go with 20's. There is no issue in staying with a 20" rim for your winters. I'm using my 20's for winter & upsized to 22's for summer.


You just have to compensate in your tire size so that your overall diameter is roughly the same.
That way your speedometer doesn't get out of whack.


The majority of the rims that are offered on the GC from the factory & aftermarket are 20".

Re: alternate rims

Am running Duratracs 18" with Touren Wheels for winter... Inexpensive wheels just for winter ... Just want something other than steel wheels for a decent price....

So you already have the 18" Touren wheels. Are you wanting to replace them with something nicer?

Yes I already have Duratracs in 18". The Mopar rims are actually quite appealing to me with the black centre and brushed aluminum trim rings.
