2014 Granite Overland Mod Pics

Got a new DSLR with a new lens, so I decided to take some pics yesterday of my car. I'm new to photography (only about 1 week of practice), so the pics might not be the best. I don't really know what I'm doing. All pictures were taken at normal ride height.

I recently put on some larger tires (275/55/20). Decided on the Cooper Zeon LTZ's over the Nitto's because my friend has the Nittos and his tires are going bald fast! His is the white Summit in the pic below. We will see if the Cooper's do any better. I also put on some wheel spacers that I got from a guy I went to high school with that actually owns the company that produces them. I took some pics to try to show what a difference the spacers actually make- It is a night and day difference! So if you want to get some, I know where you can get 'em. I do have a very small amount of rubbing on my upper right front wheel, so if you get the spacers with larger tires, I think the 285/50/20 might be a safer bet (no rubbing on my left front). I also got the smallest wheel spacer I could that would allow me no not cut the bolts on the wheel hub (think it's 1.25"). I also plastidipped the wheels and emblems in a gray color - just in case I didn't like the look I could later remove it. I love it, so now I'll be powder coating the wheels for a more durable finish. I like the chrome accents on the car (I even have a summit grill on it), but I think the chrome mirrors are a bit much so I'm going to dip the mirrors today. We will see how it looks. I have a roof rack on order and that's going on next.

Looks great.
If you buy my wheels and tires you wont need to powdercoat or switch tires.

Re: 2014 Granite Overland Mod Pics

Nicely done on the mods to your Jeep and the photos too! I really like the gray wheels with that body color. So much better than the chrome and a nice option compared to black, like most do.

And that area looks a lot like my hometown, but I'm definitely further up North than So. Cal. Where were these taken, if you don't mind me asking?

Yeah, i'm not a fan of black wheels because the wheels and tires just turn into a big blah and you can't make out the wheel design. That's just my opinion though. I do like it on white cars though.


They were taken about 1/4 of a mile down the street from me in a town called Redlands.

Well that's a lovely town then.

And I agree to a point about black wheels. I also notice they get completely lost sometimes and it's another reason I've never committed to them, aside from dip tests on my winter wheels.

Looks great man!

Is there any chance that your buddy would do a discount to JeepGarage members on the spacers? I am looking for some right now and if I can support a members buddy I will.

I think a group buy was already done. If you look up the company on Facebook, they occasionally do discounts for their followers. Actually, a 20% discount just ended on Sunday. Their name is Motorsport Tech. Other than that, I'm not sure if you could get a discount.

That is one beautifully setup WK2!


I'm planning to pick up a 2015 Granite Overland & also have my wheels powder coated gray. So Thanks for posting these pics!


I also agree about the chrome mirrors & plan on buying replacement color-matched covers.

Love what you did with the rims and tires! I have 2015 Overland in maximum steel metallic and I have been pondering getting some new tires. What is the road noise and ride like now that you added the beefier tires?

Looks really good, man. Subtle differences that really separates yours from others. Nice work!

I'm not finding LTZ'S available on Coopers site in 275/55r20.
