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

Hey guys,

Buddy of mine is selling his OEM 20inch Spider Monkeys off a 2014 (NOT 2012) SRT8 Jeep. I have a 15' JGC Altitude. I assume they should bolt on no problem, but I do have to drive an hour to get them, so before I go maybe someone has already tried and can tell me if they had any issues. He is also running 295/45/ZR20. Would love some insight from you guys!

Yes...they will fit just fine

I have 3 sets of spider monkeys for my 2014 Limited...all the newer Grand cherokees have the same 5x5 bolt pattern ...I'm also running the 295/45/20's on mine...the tires will fit just fine also

That looks amazing! Is that factory Color? I know the new SRT8s rims have a Black Chrome kind of finish. I've never seen the pure chrome, looks amazing.

These Chrome Spiders are Reproduction Wheels in a chrome finish...there are no OEM chrome Spiders as you know....but they do look pretty good. I actually bought these wheels/tires off an EBay shop...the only bad thing about that is they sell CRAP TPMS sensors...I'm on my 6th set of wheels for my 2014 Jeep and I only use the factory TPMS sensors now....they sell those on ebay as well for $40 for a complete set brand new.

I'm installing my Winter Tires/Rims this weekend which are also 20" Spider Monkey Reproductions but in "Hyper Silver" color

What color Spiders are you getting?

I though the "term" for the style was called Spider Monkeys. I am buying a set of OEM used 14' SRT8 Wheels and tires that look identical to yours. They are kind of a black/chrome finish. A little darker finish ten yours actually. I can get them for the same price as the reps on ebay.. So I figured why not go OEM compared to Ebay. Whats your opinion on that? Should I go OEM compared to Reps?


Also do you have the Mopar Brake Covers on your Jeep or real Brembos? They look good.. I hope you say they are the covers and you can attach where you got them .

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

I would buy the OEM wheel is in a SECOND if you can get them at the cost of the repros

The OEM wheels are much nicer and the black chrome finish looks amazing...if you ever want to sell them let me know


I have the actual SRT Brembo kit on my jeep ...I wanted them because they look cool and they also help greatly with braking power...I started with painted Stock calipers and that looked pretty good...but the look of the real Brembos is awesome. The Covers look OK....but I wouldn't buy them...just paint your stock calipers

I also go the Brembos to help slow down the jeep after I put the supercharger on


here's a couple pics of the stock ones painted vs the Brembos

Awesome! I'm going to go pick them up right now actually. The Brembos are so much $ but they look so good. I'll post some pics later when I get them. They comes the Pirelli Run flats but two are wasted and two are good.

If you do the brembo conversion you just need the calipers/rotors /pads

I opted to go with the metal brake lines but you can reuse the stock rubber ones

You'll need Srt compatable rims as well..these calipers are huge and will not work with any stock jeep wheels other than the Srt styles.
