Re: Wheels, Wheels, Wheels, Post Em Up

yeah, i wouldnt think the width would matter with or without the brembos. height, yes. in any case, i am going with the hyper silver srt reps 20x10, then 295/45/20 maxxis marauder II tires; end of next week. love the array of wheels you (ajag) got. i like the srt reps, regardless of finish.

Wheel Load Rating

After doing more research, I was looking into a set of SRT Spider Monkey reps. I spoke with someone at Discount Tire and the reps we were looking at did not meet the load rating of my '15 Altitude. The reps we looked at were rated at 1800 lbs. The rear axle load on my Jeep is: 1850 lbs. This number was found by looking at the sticker on the inside if the driver's door and dividing by 2. The front GAWR is 3200 lbs and the rear is 3700 lbs. My GVWR is 6500 lbs.

Did some more checking, and it turns out, other reps, from different vendors, were below the minimum as well.

I know it may not be that much of a difference for some to worry about but I'm just posting up my findings to be helpful.

I'm going to end up going with a set of 5-spoke SRT8 reps, as they are rated at 2000 lbs.

Re: Wheels, Wheels, Wheels, Post Em Up

interesting. i just got spider monkeys (reps) delivered. they are in a hyper silver finish. well, i'm in a diesel, which i know is heavier than the 3.6, 5.7, so gonna just keep an eye on wheels a little more closely. tires are going to be ordered next week. hopefully by mid may i will have all my parts installed and will be ready for my build specs, pics and helpful info i have encountered along the way.

Re: Wheels, Wheels, Wheels, Post Em Up

All of the vendors, eBay, or on-line, say they meet or exceed factory specs, but when I called and asked for the wheel load rating (shown or stamped on the back of the wheels) they were under. Most times they were stamped in kilograms. As an example, there is a seller on eBay that read the number back to me: 815 kg (1796.77 lbs) still doesn't meet the minimum.

Out of curiosity, check what your wheels show.

For reference: 1 kg = 2.20462 lbs

Re: Wheels, Wheels, Wheels, Post Em Up

2014 SRT I sold last year...miss that thing! Pics are of kind dark, sorry. These pics show a 1.8" front / 2.8" rear drop, which was too low. I ended up going to 1.8" drop in the rear after these pics were taken and it was perfect.

Thanks!! I absolutely love how it turned out thus far!

They are +18 offset. When I had the bigger tires, yes it rubbed thru the plastic trim on the front side of the rear wheel wells... (the little plastic fender trim piece you see when you open the rear doors). Right thru that, the paint and the metal. Easy fix but I ended up just downsizing the tires rather than putting spacers in. Too complicated, I don't that much about 'em

Haven't done any wheeling with the new tires yet so not sure. It's only one tire size down and there seems to be PLENTY of room there now. But until I get out on the trails again, I can't answer ya 100%.
