The General Grabber UHP are a chunkier broader shouldered tire for their size so their tread width is usually bigger.

That'll make for a bigger looking tire for MOF even in the same size.

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

I finally had a chance to get the tires mounted. The OEM wheels are slightly less aggressive than the replicas and the General Grabber UHP's give the Jeep a slightly more sporty ride. The replicas seem to have more depth to their spokes while the OEM's spokes are less concave and give the wheel a flatter look. I added the black Gorilla lugs since ill be blacking out my trim in the future. Overall im happy with my decisions.

...and now the pics.

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

What suspension do you have? Self leveling? Also any difference in feel from replica to eom. Any vibration with the wider wheel vs the other?

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

All Altitudes come with standard QT1 suspension. No wheel should vibrate unless you have a balancing issue. Both my OEM and replica wheels balanced properly and have no vibration at any speeds. The 9" wide replica wheel does allow for added curb protection from the tire over the 10".

The ride differences I've felt is due to the tire. If I chose the same tire the difference would be negligible.

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

Ok. I see you have a hitch, so was wondering if you have the Sachs load leveling oem shocks in the rear. Also what tire pressure are you running now?
