Anyone Running 18" Mopar Steelies?

I know there's one guy , Lygriek who has them on but has not responded to my PMs, and has only 5 posts, so not sure if he'll be able to chime in.

He has 265/70/18 on his QL WK2. I was wondering if I should also go with 265/70/18 or stick with the tried-and-true 265/65/18

Why would you run a steel wheel? No one wants to run steel wheels anymore, haven't you noticed? They are cheap but there is a reason; they are heavy, rust and take more effort to look good. To your other question, unless the 70 series tire you want has some kind of attribute you can't get on the 65 you wouldn't run it either. It is 1" taller, has more sidewall thus poorer handling and weighs more. Handling/sidewall & weight/size are tire specific, but in general, those are the usual differences. Hope that answers your questions, Nancy, now dry your tears.
