Now why would you buy a fifth wheel? For the amount of time that it will take you to get fixed, you could use one of the 9" winter tires as the spare or vice versa. Unless you are doing something radical with tire sizes, the little difference should not be an issue.

Yeah, I was debating just using a front winter setup during the summer as a spare and vice versa in the winter.

That is my current plan, just can't decide if I want to stay with the Michelin 275/315 combo or go with taller BFG KDW2 in the 265/50 295/45 sizes for the Summer.

I think those bigger tires look kind of funny.

Re: Replica Wheels

I like the look of the taller tires, they fill the wheel well nicely.

Re: Replica Wheels

The place OEW place the wheels are 20x 9.5 size and not the 20x 9.0 size the other places are selling and the srt front size. There is a thread about the OEW place but no one has got a set installed on a WK, I think the tires will be pass the the fender wells.

I called OEWheels, and the rep told me the whwwls are in fact 9" wide, the 9.5 is a typo. They are out of stock until Jul 1 I will call then to double check the width and order a set.
