Question HELP: New '14 Summit owner - Overwhelmed with wheel, tire & suspension setup

I'm calling out to all '14+ Summit and HA owners- I need your help! I recently purchased a '14 Summit V8 w QL suspension. I'm coming from a '10 WK1 SRT and I don't know much about the QL suspension. I do know I want to put on 20s or 22s but not sure what width and what option is better for the Summit.

Here's what I need to know
Wheels - What size, width & offset are you running?
Tires - What is the best tire size to sit flush with width of Jeep and give the best ride?
Suspension - I'd like as little of wheel gap as possible, but obviously don't want it to rub or bottom out. I think lowering links are my best option, but as I stated I'm not sure. Just going off what I've read around the forum

Any help from you guys would be greatly appreciated! I have some plans for this build and will update you guys on how it goes

Re: HELP: New '14 Summit owner - Overwhelmed with wheel, tire & suspension setup

The Summit already has 20s on it, so you should be able to get some visual guidance about how things will look with that setup. All of this is very subjective and there are many threads here that discuss the same. Wheel width is a factor based on the tire requirements in the tire specifications and is generally expressed in a range of wheel widths that are acceptable. There are a number of threads here that deal with spacers to adjust off-set. The forum search feature is your friend...

As noted in your previous thread, you have little option relative to lowering outside of the sensor links or that electronic gizmo from, I believe, Australia. But that effect is limited to about an inch of lowering...maybe slightly more...without getting error messages.

Thanks for the info Jim! I've been trying to search as much as I can, just a lot of info on here! I really want to go with 22" WK1 SRT replicas. Would just like to hear if people are running 9 or 10" wide and what tire setup they have and how the ride feels.

There are a few folks running 22s that have posted since I've been here, but not many. Perhaps a hand-full. As you go in that direction, the tire choices get curtailed a lot. Wheel width really depends upon the tire you choose, so you may want to focus on that first and once you get your wheel width you can then consider spacers.

After doing quite a bit of research on the site, I've found a few people that are running 22s. I'm about to pull the trigger and buy 22x10 SRT replicas with 285/40/22 Toyo Proxy STIIs. Found a good deal on a wheel + tire package for $1999 mounted/balanced/shipped. The only thing I'm not sure about purchasing are 4 TPMS its $55/each so $220 total.

Is it worth the extra $220 for the TPMS?

Re: HELP: New '14 Summit owner - Overwhelmed with wheel, tire & suspension setup

You need to either use your existing TPMS or buy four more for the new wheels. Your vehicle will error out with out them.

BTW, if you are changing the tire diameter from the ~30.6" of the OEM tires, you'll also need to up-size your spare tire diameter to match. Wheel size is irrelevant on this matter...tire diameter is with a 4WD system. Changing tire diameter will also make your Speedo and Odo not quite accurate and the dealer cannot adjust for that in the computer. The only known way to do that is with the Diablo Tuner which is a chunk of shekels to acquire.

Fromt what I've read on the forum and and see on willtheyfit.com they should run pretty close to stock size without much speedometer difference. I'll just have to pay the extra for the TPMS if they are a must have.

Info from Jeep Garage:
22x10 285/40/22 on 14 Overland?

I'm running a 22x10.5" +35 offset all round with 285/35/22 with the home made lowering links I found on this site.
