Re: Different wheels needed

I'd like to know who made the 22" wheels for the street jeep. Those would look fantastic.

Re: Different wheels needed

They are the same wheels as the Overland 20", just manufactured in 22."


Any rims for the 2012 Jeep SRT8 are probably going to have to be custom made due to size and brake clearance. Not to mention, who wants to put cheap wheelmax crap on the vehicle. They'll be heavy as hell, too.

I'm not sure 22" will be the right size. Might be too big and make the vehicle look too Matchbox car. I believe the SEMA with 22" has larger tires and a properly calculated speedo. Rears on the WK are 285/45/20 and the WK2 is only a 295/45/20. A 21" wheel may provide the same profile we are looking for as the WK has. I'm going to sit down some day and do an actual, true ratio photoshop with some quality wheel makers pics. If going with 22", rims would need to be 22x10 with a tire size of 305/35/22 to keep the same rolling diameter. Width would be a tad larger. 21's would be 21x10 with a 295/40/21 tire

Re: Different wheels needed

Hello all,
Anyone know what the hub bore is for thw wheels on the WK2?
I'm seeing some listings with 73mm but I can't confirm. Will take one off soon if I don't see concrete answer.

Help would be great, save me the trouble. ;-)

Re: Different wheels needed

Those calipers are going to present a problem. Custom wheels or big arse spacers will be needed.

You nailed it, the wheels on the new SRT8 are one piece forged, very strong and light weight. An equivalent 1 piece mono-block or 2/3 piece forged modular setup will run around $1000 EACH!

Do you really dislike these enough to part with at least $5000 (wheels plus tires).......
