Re: The official Wheel thread

I see the center bore listed as 71.5mm on the WK2, but anyone actually measured it? I picked up my 20" rep rims and they measure with a center bore of 67mm, using a caliper. Went out to my 2013 Overland, took off one wheel did a test fit and the rep wheel fits just fine. Measured the stock wheel and the bore was also 67. Maybe I'm not measuring them correctly?

Re: The official Wheel thread

I am now noticing rubbing during slight turns and when going over larger humps and dips in the road.

Re: The official Wheel thread

O.K. so your running 275/65 with a custom rim. Is it the offset that's the problem or would the height rub regardless? Reason I ask is everytime I'm about to order the level kit and larger tires (32") it seems like someone comes on here with some rubbing and I want to use it like a Jeep. Some off-road, beach, etc. It seems to me maybe 31.5" is the magic number.

Re: The official Wheel thread

I think with the leveling kit, 31.5 would be much better. The rubbing is not bad by any means and I doubt it will cause a problem. I could probably remove the felt and never hear it again, but the tires just ride so very close in the front part of the front wheel wells. It really needs to have the full lift to get a little more clearance or a little smaller on tire diameter. I don't think another offset would do much to help, it appears.

Re: The official Wheel thread

I'm sure that's a much better setup. I really wish I could have gone with 17's, too.

Have you done any off-roading, beach, speed bump bashing LOL to test the clearance in different scenarios. I'm curious because I'm looking to upgrade to a 31.8 - 32.0" tire and don't want issues If I choose to do those things.

Makes sense. I wonder if the felt could be replaced with something that would stick closer to the body. It seems like a lot of space is used for the felt in the well, but probably for noise reduction.
