Wheels for snow tires

Hello all,
I have a 2013 Overland HEMI and I'm thinking about swapping the OEM 20s for OEM 18s with snow tires. Will the OEM 18s fit my truck?

Thanks
Ryan

Re: Wheels for snow tires

Sure will. 18's are standard with the OR2 package. I have 18" steels on mine for winter.

Re: Wheels for snow tires

Any of these will work and fit fine using the OEM size tires:
Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - 2011-2015 Grand Cherokee wheels and tires
That said, you could also use any appropriately sized wheel from a Mercedes M or G wagon. That thought is crossing my mind, as I am in the market for new shoes on my GC

Wheels for snow tires

I got mine from OK Tire (Canada) as a set with the tires. Figured bending something worth 80-90$ on a pot hole is better than a nice rim worth 300$+.

Re: Wheels for snow tires

I'm using 18 inch JK rims for my winter wheels and they fit and personally think look better than the factory 18s.

Re: Wheels for snow tires

MOPAR has an 18" steel wheel for the GC

68051987AC

Quick Google search shows they run about $150 per wheel.

Seems like the best bet since you would be sure it would fit properly, though you can buy cheap aluminum wheels for that much...

You would need 265/60R18 tires to keep the speedo accurate.

18" is the OEM size for the Laredo X and Off Road package.

I have some stock 18's with less than 200 miles on them for sale in the classifieds section. Not sure where you are located?
