Thanks Ajag, those links will be very helpful in my pursuit of new wheels, tires and TPMS. Now the decision is Hyper Silver or Gloss Black wheels on the Brilliant Black Jeep

Personally...I love the way all black wheels look when sitting there...but I feel like you lose the detail of the rim when the car is moving.....I don't love the look of the Hyper silver but it's dark enough to give that blacked out effect for me...I searched long and hard for my next set of rims and this is what I ended up settling on

Its all black except for the silver star face...just enough silver to show the detail of the rim without losing the black effect ...at least for me

I agree it is a tough decision. There are also these

These are from OE Wheels in Florida.

Those will look great Ajag....are you going with 20's or 22's.

I was originally looking at those or the Lexani R7 in 22's but ended up going with the SRT8 reps based on price point.

Lexani R4-

I Went with 22x10 " and am wrapping them up with Toyo Proxes ST2 in 305/40/22

Using the Factory TPMS Sensors...

I have the Brembo SRT brakes on my jeep so with that in mind it does limit the choices a little more than when it was stock ...These Lexani's should fit ...

I like the Lexani R7's as well....sharp looking wheels for sure ...it's just too hard to decide...that's why I am now on my 5th set of rims/tires in the past 2 years

I'll be watching for those to be installed especially with the 305-40-22's.

I wanted that size but was too skittish on the fitment with rubbing etc.

What's the offset of the Lexani's.....my SRT8 in 22x10 are +45mm.

If yours work out for you with an offset anywhere near that, I might try out the 305-40-22's to give myself a bit more rubber to soften the harshness of the ride.

I'm not sure what the actual offset of the R4's are but they should be similar to the SRT wheels ...I think my Spider Moneys are ~+35

I'll be mounting the Lexani's up in the spring time...so we'll see how the 305's work out...

Re: Will OEM 12' SRT8 Spider Monkeys fit 15 JGC Altitude?

Just dropped the wheels off to get powder coated. Will be done next Wednesday! Does anyone know if the center caps from the OEM altitude wheels will fit to the Spider Monkeys? Also the guy gave me the lugs with the Spider Monkeys, I assume I shouldn't have an issue or should I order the gorilla lugs? Appreciate the feedback guys!

I also buy factory TPMS sensors from this guy 4 New 56029398AB Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM 433MHz TPMS Tire Pressure Sensor | eBay

I ran the chrome spider monkeys all summer and had about 9k miles on them with good luck...
Hey, for that price I would love to upgrade my wheels. Stupid question, but with those tires do you rub at all? Second question, do I need new TPMS or can I transfer them from my old wheels?

you can reuse your TPMS Sensors...shouldn't be a problem

I don't have any rubbing issues with these Blizzaks I have...they are a bit bigger than I expected but they fit fine

Re: Will OEM 12' SRT8 Spider Monkeys fit 15 JGC Altitude?

Just want to thank everyone helping me out with figuring out the right tire/wheel combo. Went with Toyo Proxes STII. Great tire overall! Just minimal noise coming to a stop, but besides that its a quiet tire and grips well. Got the wheels powdercoated by a local shop to us. Also added the MGP Brake Caliper Covers! BTW these are OEM Spider Monkeys, not reps. Any questions feel free to let me know.
