Re: Mopar: No Wheel Options

The OEM 20 inch fits any vehicle without mods. You have to be careful putting smaller than 18 inch wheels on a V8 (HD calipers are bigger). There has been a lot of discussion about whats the maximum tire size, but if you stick with the OEM sizing you will not have any issues.

Thanks. Does anyone know the offset on the OEM 20". I see some are going with 20 x 9 and the OEM is 20 x 8. So with the 8" you need a bigger offset so it's not too inward of the wheel well. Is that how that works. Sorry for my ingorance. I'm looking for a beefier wheel/tire then my stock laredo 18" but nothing that sticks out pass the wheel well, thanks.

Re: Mopar: No Wheel Options

I found this web site useful when comparing wheel and tire sizes.

Stock offset is +56.4, so you may be able to get by with wider rubber than stock 8" with less offset which will put the wheels and tires a bit more outboard.

Others here have done just that, check out 4thcherokee with the Rhino rims and beefier tires.
