Not only are brakes important but don't overlook how important wheels and tires are too! It sounds to me like you would consider installing SRT 20x10 size wheels on a non SRT wk2 that only comes from the factory with either 18x8 or 20x8 wheels. It's therefore obvious non SRT Jeeps are clearly only designed and intended to operate safely and properly with either of those two sizes. Thus it is quite clear that non SRT wk2 Jeeps should not even consider 20x10 size wheels. Installing them could be risky and reckless; not to mention it could damage the EGR system on a vehicle! thus rendering your shocks inoperable!

I know there are some rumors flying around this website that people allege to have changed wheel sizes from the factory installed sizes but I urge you to not consider doing so without first contacting a dealer and wheel and tire manufactures to see if it actually can be done. You shouldn't do any alterations to your vehicle based on pictures, rumors, or opinions but instead on facts provided by dealers and wheel manufacturers.

Everybody on the forum has been telling him to not listen to the dealer or Brembo,that it can be done. Now you really confused the poor guy....

Dealer is OK with 20X10s on WK2. It's all about keeping the warranty. I really like this song too, but I don't use it as a guide for vehicle modification.
