Re: New Viper repo wheels on 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK

Does the jeep feel different driving? Tighter? Did is change your MPH or speedo any?

Looks great by the way!

Stock ride height. Jeep drives better in my opinion. Not harsh at all. Haven't checked the speedo yet, but it's close to the stock rolling diameter.

No rubbing either. The fit couldn't be any better.

Re: New Viper repo wheels on 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK

I'm looking to install the same 20x9 Factory reproductions wheels but the 5 spoke silver SRT8 style.

How have your viper rims held up the past few years?

I have a silver 2008 overland with the stock chrome clad 18 rims and can't believe Jeep would use these on an Overland model. Anyhow, I think the 20inch srt8 wheels would look great but want to make sure they hold up and are functional. I plan to use the same size tired but all season.

I know this is an older post so hopefully you get this!!!!

Thanks

Nathan

Re: New Viper repo wheels on 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK

Mine have held up great, except for where I caught the curb with the passenger side rear wheel - took a little chrome off of it, but not too bad.

Re: New Viper repo wheels on 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK

Also, did you re-program your speedometer , abs, and transmission after putting on the 20x9's?

I was informed to recalibrate the ecu and was wondering if you did so ....thanks again!!!!

Re: New Viper repo wheels on 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK

Any issues with pot holes with the 275/45's? How is the ride and tread life? Looking to get that size maybe in an all season, perhaps Pirelli Scorpion Verde or continental extreme contact.
