No rubbing, front or rear. They fit pretty good actually.

Re: D'Amore Engineering SEMA Jeep 33s on 20s

I too think this Jeep looks awesome.

It looks like the OP is long gone unfortunately to answer any more questions though. I did see this same thread posted on another Jeep website and some people were giving him a hard time about: why put 20's on an offroad car and that makes no sense and why would you do that and I don't get it and it's just an offroad posing mall cruiser, and that lift kit is bad and why didn't you install 18's, and one wheel is in the air it's no good, etc, etc...

Well I don't care what the purist naysayers have to say I think it looks baddass and who cares if you don't offroad with it every weekend. Or any weekend. Besides then aren't the guys with fully decked out offroad rigs driving on public streets aren't they just being on road poseurs driving trucks clearly not ideally suited for use on streets and highways and trying to do what street cars are better designed for??

I've been thinking of the RRO lift kit just to put on big tires like this; only thing is I put Brembos on my diesel Limited so I have to determine if I would have clearance with big tires because I have to use the SRT reps (for front caliper clearance) with different offset than this truck is with the +18 offset. But I think a lifted diesel with Brembos and big crazy tires would look pretty cool. I can see the post responses now if I did it: why did you put Brembos on that, that makes no sense, why would you waste that money, you just drive to malls, nobody needs Brembos and you don't drive on racetracks and they don't go with big tires and your truck is ridiculous.....And maybe I'll intentionally never take it off road just to piss off the condescending wheeling purists I'll just keep posting pics of it parked in front of the mall

Well if the OP ever comes back sorry to have taken this off topic and I like your truck!

Re: D'Amore Engineering SEMA Jeep 33s on 20s

First pic I've seen of a WK2 with a 20x9 ET18 wheel on it. Looks tits for sure! Tried that size with 275/55-20s on my limited and it didn't work out without a lift. So the leveling kit will go on shortly.

As for the naysayers and the mall crawling comments, my Grandy well likely never see a trail any serious off road use. Why would I do that when I have a dedicated rig sitting the driveway next to it? I just happen to like the performance of an AT tire and it looks great. The Grand was never meant to be a serious trail rig anyway. Some light off road of back country exploration but really nothing more. As such, I will keep mind looking nice and still enjoy it. When someone else starts making the monthly notes on it, then their opinion might count. Until then, piss off.

Re: D'Amore Engineering SEMA Jeep 33s on 20s

what needed to be modified to fit 33x12.5 tires with that RRO 2.5 inch lift? I want the same setup! Is all you need 20x9 +18 wheels to mount them on?

Re: D'Amore Engineering SEMA Jeep 33s on 20s

Ok it seems i may have found the answer on jeep forum from him awhile back... He said:

"The wheels (with the wrangler offset) were chosen so the tires would fit. RRO recommends running 1.5 inch - 2 inch spacer if tires larger than 32" are used. These wheels effectively gave us 1.5" spacers. I'd rather have the wheel do the spacing than run spacers. The wheels are also 1.0" wider than the stock 18s so we effectively got 1" more clearance on the inside and they are pushed out 2" toward the outside (which these wk2s need imo to not look so mini-van-ish). Haven't had any rubbing issues front or rear in any situation yet. The pinch weld in the front wheel wells was easily bent backwards with a large cresent wrench. This, trimming some of the felt, and removing the "reverse mud flaps" that come from the factory on the front was all that was needed to get some man tires on this Jeep."


Also the wheels seem to be 20x9 +18 Raceline Assault 991B models without centercaps (991B-29050+18)
