OEM 18" Steel Wheels on 2014 WK2

I bought a set of the OEM Steel wheels to use for winter. There's no lug nut listed by Mopar, and it's the same as the spare, so you would think the lug nut from the stock wheels would fit. But the acorn stock lugs do not seat in the steel rims.

Anyone have any ideas? Would a mag seat lug (from say Toyota) work on this?

And how about a center cap? It sure looks unfinished without, but I have no idea what kind of center cap might even work.

Pictures attached, and any help or comments appreciated.

Didn't see pictures.
The Grand Cherokee 2014 2011 A 9720 18" Stamped Steel Wheel, for winter/off road use, no center cap 68051987AB doesn't have a center cap, but oddly the accessory catalog doesn't mention a need for different lug nuts. The catalog [available at dealer or jeep.com] does have a center cap:
All Jeep 2014 2012 A 2945 Wheel Center Caps, Set of four with Mopar logo. Fits wheels with 63 mm center cap opening 82212508

Or, if you have a Discount Tire or similar in the area, they would very likely be able
to set you up with a good set of aftermarket lugs that could also fit your original alloys. Might even have center caps, but those tend to be part of a wheel set.

Use the steel wheels for winter with my MY11 and use the same OE wheel nuts.

That is not the appropriate center cap. That is a replacement cap for stock aluminum wheels with a Mopar logo instead of Jeep/Dodge.


What you need is a "push through hub cover." You'll have to measure the size of the opening in the wheel.

Your OE lugs should work fine for the steel wheels. They work for the spare, so you should be fine.

Re: OEM 18" Steel Wheels on 2014 WK2

What is the wheel width on the steel wheel (68051987AB) you mention? Is that the same as the spare that is included with a 2014 Limited?

Thanks

Re: OEM 18" Steel Wheels on 2014 WK2

I have also purchased a set of steel winter rims for off-road use.
The OE lugs fit the steel rims. However the chrome lugs on the black steel rim look kind of weird.

Are OE lugs in black not available?
