Very minimal difference. There is slightly more road noise with these Falken tires over the stock Forteras but barely. One thing I did notice is that the truck does feel more planted to the ground because of the wider tires.

Just had a photoshoot with a Rohana wheel dealer while I was visiting their shop for black lug nuts. I should have some professional photos emailed to me shortly. They gave me free install and even got a free Rohana t-shirt for my time

Some bad news though. I noticed while cleaning the car before the photoshoot that one of the rims has already been curbed. My girlfriend had the truck all day yesterday and I believed used valet twice. SMH. I used some black touch up paint to mask it but I was heartbroken. I haven't even had these for two days. But curbed 22s while driving in Chicago should be expected. So sad.

Re: staggered 22inch wheels ordered

^ Tough luck on the curbage, hopefully not too noticeable!

One last question: Is the CF on the barrels just vinyl? I've never seen the gloss finish like that before - looks great.

Either way your Jeep's looking slick -

Thanks! Yes I believe it is just vinyl. Did not ask if they had to use anything to make it gloss.

Re: staggered 22inch wheels ordered

Here's another quick shot and a quick question for those who might have the answer.

I've been quoted roughly $1300 for a eibach drop kit installation.
For parts, labor (8 hours) and four wheel alignment. Does this sound about right? Is it fair? From what I've read through the forum it should only take about 3 hours and the eibach kit is at most $300.

I also got a quote for a custom airbag suspension for about $4200. Just for fun. Something that would be cool but pretty expensive.

Close up shot before I had the black lug nuts installed. This is the rear wheel.

I live in the south loop area but don't mind a drive. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Another quick shot of the wheels before installation with just the gloss black lips finished. They tried to convince me to leave the face with the machined finish but I insisted on the gun metal wrapping. I believe I made the right choice.

Very much appreciated! I'll definitely check them out. Their website says a new Chicago location is set to open soon. Hopefully sooner than later.
