Re: Why? Euro SRT wheels

They look to be no bigger than 8" to me. Really really undersized. Likely story is something to do with lack of avail for runflats, at least here in Australia runflats are only typically available at dealerships, not at retail tire outlets.

Please tell me this guy is banned...

On topic,
It's all a bunch of bull dookie, but it comes down to a mix of import/export restrictions, road safety requirements, and non-competition/protectionism legislation. <Somewhere in that ball of shit is the reason certain cars and options are market-specific.

Re: Why? Euro SRT wheels

There was a pair of black ones last week on ebay Germany ... 20x8.0 the guy says they are OEM. See the wheel stamp ... made in Japan ... are the other rims not made in the US

http://cgi.ebay.de/JEEP-GRAND-CHEROK...item2a029cf7e5

there is also another guy selling parts of a SRT8 which seems to be a Euro version (speedometer in Km/h) he does not specify rim size but he's got 275/40 R20 on them.

http://cgi.ebay.de/JEEP-GRAND-CHEROK...item2a029cf7e5

I really do not have a clue as to the difference in sizes but wonder if its linked to emissions regulation. A couple months back I was with a friend at a VW dealership in Germany to inquire about a remote starter for a Touareg. To our great surprise, we were told that they no longer offer the option and that's its illegal to retrofit them now due to emission reglations. I waited for the punch line but he was serious. Its seen as a source of unnecessary Co2 emission.

Re: Why? Euro SRT wheels

The WH changed to the U.S. size wheels with the release of the upgraded model in 2008. Take note of the flares.

I believe that in Europe, the turn signals have to be amber....Maybe the designers didnt like the look for the US WK's
