New wheels/tires on the rig

Just thought I would show the boys my most recent purchase.

18" 2013 Sahara wheels on dueler A/T 255/70r18's with about 500 miles on them!

No rubbing and no spacers needed and the full size matching spare wheel/tire fit perfectly under the spare tire door.

One thing that was weird; when the tires were cold no tpms light came on but when the tires got warm, it came on. I am thinking maybe bc I had my other wheels in the trunk that maybe there was radio interference, but if not I will just swap out the ones on my stock 17's.

And one last thing... Does anyone know if the Sahara unlimited comes with tpms?

Re: New wheels/tires on the rig

Thanks brother. Really pleased about the purchase.

Truth be told I was nervous about the potential for rubbing.. But alas, it worked!

randwats has much to be proud of
Those wheels look sweet on there. Always have a soft spot for black powdercoating too. :-).

From what I understand about the TPMS, they've been required by law on every vehicle since 08. It's just a difference if you get an actual tire pressure reading in the EVIC or if the light turns on or flashes on the cluster.

Re: New wheels/tires on the rig

Yea. Under the pasti dip is chrome, but the flat black always calls me home.

Since I have a Laredo, it just flashes then stays on. It doesn't measure each tire like on the limited.

Honestly, I see/hear no real difference from these tires to the stock ones. I mean, slightly more road noise, but with the windows up, you can't hear it at all.

Re: New wheels/tires on the rig

My 2010 came with TPMS but it is different, only good for warning not actual pressure. Looks nice BTW, I want to use my Sahara take-offs but I don't want the larger tires.

Re: New wheels/tires on the rig

looks good! those running boards will really come in handy now with the taller tire you have on.
