'15 Overland wheels

For winter wheels and tires I looked at a set of Milanni 554 last weekend:


Chrome rims look good on the Grand Cherokee to me. They have about 30% tread Toyo ATs on them, the OEM lug nuts don't fit the rims, there are no TPMS sensors and the offset is not quite the same as OEM. He was willing to go for $200 so they came home. They might have to be the summer wheels with the OEMs becoming the winter wheels.

Re: '15 Overland wheels

I think the original 18" wheels on the back look better, but thats just my opinion. Also, you mentioned the offset isn't right. So what do they look like from the side? Do they stick way out or something? Not my style, but thats the beauty of these forums is that we all like different things.

Re: '15 Overland wheels

Those look terrible. I wouldn't want them if they were given to me.

Re: '15 Overland wheels

The offset places the 265s out almost 3/4" further than the stock rims. I have previously installed splash guards and will be adding running boards probably around Christmas. I don't currently have pics from the front or rear.

I like the wider tire stance. It looks more rugged or capable or something that is appealing, but not sticking out past the body. I will probably go with a 245 tread width for the winter tires. Wider tires on light vehicles don't do so well on ice and float on the snow too much. That's important to us when the better half gets home before I do to plow the access road. Finding a good winter tire 245/65-18 is looking to be a little limited, so they will probably end up being a little taller and we'll just deal with the incorrect speedometer.

Even though it is not the current style, I prefer the look (and off road performance) of smaller wheels with more sidewall. I also like chrome instead of black wheels. The polished alloys with clear coat look OK. They're not as classy IMHO and don't last long around here with the winter road deicer.

I suppose I should also admit to wearing warm and comfortable plaid shirts, Levi blue jeans (Wranglers are too baggy) and Lariat boots because they last.

Re: '15 Overland wheels

Your definition of classy must be different then mine because those wheels look like they belong on a 1992 Geo Tracker and not a new Grand Cherokee.

I'm not a fan of chrome wheels but it's not the chrome that makes them horrible. It's the style.

As far as winter tires I run 285/50/20s and have no issues in Chicago winters with my Blizzaks.

You mean the 5-spoke style?

No, I obviously like 5 spoke wheels but i prefer them without the ugly.
Anyway you have a split 5 spoke with spokes that are concave instead of convex.
Your comparison is like saying two people look the same because they're both humans.

I agree definitely turn your OEMs into your winter set. Don't want the salt to eat the old school chrome set up. Nice to see some kicking it old school all though I will admit I have gotten to liking the all black everything myself. Are you going to throw some new meat on them since you got them for a steal?

Re: '15 Overland wheels

Definitely new tires. It's the wife's ride so need to make sure everything is 100%. I had been debating OEM TPMS sensors versus taking a chance in aftermarket when a board member posted some OEMs for sale. They're here already so need to decide between Toyo ATII and a BFGoodrich tire.
Thanks for being considerate.

Re: '15 Overland wheels

Do you know what BF you plan on going with I had the toyo open countries on my Silverado and they lasted for ever but I imagine the boss doesn't want a lot of tire noise but the BFs last a long time as well.
