Any problem moving from 17" to 18" wheels?

Have a 2011 MK2 Laredo with factory 17" wheels. Would like to move up to 18" for more wheel options but don't want to create any problems or change the handling or ride. Would also like to make sure what the offset variance is, the dealership says 35 to 45mm. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Neal

Re: Any problem moving from 17" to 18" wheels?

Youll have to be more careful going to an aftermarlet wheel, but if you stick with OEM 18" Limited wheels, or go to the 20" Overland wheels and stock tire sizes there will be no issues whatsoever. If you go aftermarket just make sure you get the correct offsets and OEM tire sizes.

So going from 17" to 20" OEM is no problem, that is great information.
Thanks JTS97Z28.

No as long as you use the correct size tire.
