WK2 in my future and need help

okay so I have been searching through the forums and had my rims picked out, but fell in love with the old style SRT8 rims in black. I am purchasing a grey wk2 in the near future and am starting to look into modifications already haha. would you guys recommend 20 or 22'' rims? I am going to be having a lot of questions and thanks in advance for your input.

What size can a jeep run without rubbing? I live in Utah, so i was hoping that the tires/wheels could be all terrains, or a sporty looking all terrain. They just need to be acceptable in the snow, i wont be mudding or anything like that. I am hoping to get the widest tire possible... thank you!

I have narrowed down my selection to:

Factory reproduction srt8 rims
What are some good sizes for these? I'm debating between 20 or 22's and don't know what width I should go with (9" or 10") thanks

Re: WK2 in my future and need help

You have posted your question in the right place but did you search this forum?
If you search SRT Reps there are several threads that discuss 22's etc.
Good Luck

I think 22s look better on the wk2. I have 22x10s with 285 35 22s.

Do I need to worry about width and rubbing? Arnt the srt8's have a wider wheelbase?

Okay so say I get 22" rims. What is the biggest tire size I can run? I want the most sidewall I can get with 22" just to keep the rims from getting damaged. What's the widest tire size I would want to go with without any rubbing? If I put spacers on the wheels, would they stick out a little? I'm thinking 22x9 srt reps. They look so clean and the price is hard to beat. Where have you guys purchased yours? What was the best price? Thanks again in advance.

Also, what would be my best bet for tires that will be my winter tires as well. I plan on running the wheels all year.

X2 I'm really debating between 20's or 22's. anyone have a picture of 20'a vs 22's on the same jeep. I love the look of 22's on a srt8, but not sure about a normal GC.

Also, what's the widest tire size I can run?

Re: WK2 in my future and need help

about a 285-40-22 looks perfect on the wk2. Look in the durango forum and find my wifes 11' Durango on 22x9 black srt reps...those are 285-40-22's

Re: WK2 in my future and need help

IMO, go 22" for 3 seasons street, and put a set of 20" blizzaks on your stockers for winter.

Tough to find proper winter rubber, let alone more sidewall on the twenny twens.

Are you in the Wasatch or down in the flats?
