Got my Winter Wheels

Well, I got my winter wheels from Tire Rack but won't have time to mount them until Friday afternoon. They're huge compared to my car wheels. Because of the Q-L system, I plan to lower it to park height then disable the Q-L sys before jacking it up.

These 18x8 Sport Edition TX5 wheels mounted with Blizzak DM-V1 265/60-18's.

Here are some photos, just un-packaged and what they are going on soon. Dec. 24th. : New photos added on page 2.

Re: Got my Winter Wheels

Nice, they look as if they have the same finish as the 20" Jeep rims?

Re: Got my Winter Wheels

What transmitter did you choose, the 433MHz? I red somewhere that they do not work with the WK2. Can you confirm Peter?

Re: Got my Winter Wheels

I just got the Sport Edition CX with Blizzaks delivered yesterday. I'm planing on installing them on the Overland tomorrow so I'll let you all know if the TPM senders work. I did ask the guy at Tire Rack about the different TPM systems on the different models of the GC and he told me there should be no problem. We will see.

Re: Got my Winter Wheels

I left it up to Tire Rack to install the suggested TPMS sensors. It's the same frequency as my previous GC, 433Mhz.
I won't know if they work till Friday afternoon and I'll post photos then too.

I looked at several wheels but most were not hub centric so I went with these. I hate having to put those center rings on with every change. I originally wanted black wheels.

Re: Got my Winter Wheels

I've had my tire package from Tire Rack for a couple of weeks now - tire pressure monitors work just fine.
