Re: Careful with the 20" wheels

True...be careful. Due to this thread, I was looking to see how close to flush the tires (265/50x20") were on my stock wheels last night. While the wheel does not protrude beyond the tire, it is very close to being flush. Because it's so close, if one were to hit a curb (rub up against) with some lateral force, there would be just enough flex in the tire sidewall to allow possible wheel scrape depending on the height and shape of the curb. I would guess 275/50 or 285/50 size tires would take care of that wheel-scrape-potential with only minimal speedometer error (i.e. indicate ~2mph-4mph slower when at 60mph).

Re: Careful with the 20" wheels

can't believe there's so much blame on the tires and the wheels when it should be the driver that needs to go improve their parking skills

find empty parking lot mark it how you want with what you want and practice practice and practice lol learn your vehicle's proportions better you'll never touch another curb

Re: Careful with the 20" wheels

Its not that bad. The wheels on my MKZ as out there to get ding after me trying my ZJ for 4 years that at tires to take are of the curb. With a small adjustment in my driving/parking I was able to park my car without any problems.

Believe me, it is a lot more painful when the wheel that is getting scratched is an aluminum/magnesium alloy at $3600 a set to replace. DAMHIK.

Does anyone know if the spare on the Off road package is a full size with matching wheel and tire or is it the space saver as well?

It is not. None of the new Jeeps have a matching wheel. They are full size with the off road and 20" wheel packages, but they are the ugly steel wheels.

You ever find out what the paint is to match? I just scratched up my new wheels and need a paint match repair job!!
