24 is a lot of rim, personally I think that anything over 22 is to big.....20 is a good size and looks great on the JGCs. Thats IMO

Quality wise, it's a bit of a gamble buying without actually seeing, do you know anyone near the location of the wheels to get a look for you?

Would stay away from it. Quality would be questionable at best at that price without seeing them in person.

Stay with rims you get from the dealer, 20's or otherwise; especially if you are concerned with safety, not to mention ride quality and the tire pressue monitoring system you get with stock rims. I also agree with the look, nothing look better than the 20's..IMO

Re: I really need help on this plese help

The "AND MANY MORE VEHICLES" worries me a bit. The Jeep has 71 mm centers while GM uses 77mm. The Jeep wheel is hub centric: the wheel registers (centers) on the hub and not the studs.

I'd suggest asking what the hub diameter is (one reason is best to stay with factory wheels).

^yes, do this. not only are they solid and safe, but they are a beautiful set of rims. you can find them in the Jeep Garage classifieds rather regularly for around $900-$1000 for the set as well. presume you can keep the 18" for winter with proper rubber if needed?
