Wheels are here now. Hopefully the shop next door has time to mount and balance them today.

They look like 18 x 10s to me actually.

Well, the wheels and lug nuts came but they did not put the tire pressure monitors in there but they charged me for them. I am beyond annoyed right now. I ordered a set from my local advance auto parts and it will be there in the morning. I am mad that I will not have the Jeep up and running until tomorrow evening.

They measure nearly 11 inches (10 7/8") across the wheel. Normally a 10 inch wide wheel measures 11-11.25" across the wheel. They are really wide for a 9.5. I would call them a 9.75. Backspace as I measure it is 6 3/8-6 1/2 inches. Stated backspace is just under 6 1/4 inches.

They fit. No rubbing anywhere right now even going over speed bumps.



I have enough room in the wheel wells now for 325/60/18 tires.

Custom setup with Magnaflow mufflers and front resonator replaced with a h-pipe. Yes it is a 5.7L.

Well, the tires have not made any contact with the upper part of the fender despite running over more speedbumps at about 15 MPH and a couple dips in the road today. I love how much softer the ride is vs the 20s that were on there. The tires soak up way more of the bumps in the road than before. Having driven both my QL equipped Overland and also standard suspension Limited I honestly believe the standard suspension rides a little better overall. The air springs are kinda stiff even in regular ride height.
