Rubicon wheels

Anyone ever tried to put rubicon wheels on the SRT? Might consider a set for the winter if it works.

Re: Rubicon wheels

Correct, I believe the smallest size to fit over the factory brembos is an 18in wheel but I don't know of anyone who has installed an 18" on a WK2 SRT

I thought the WK1s could run an 18in wheel (drag/snow wheels) is this not true for the WK2 as well??

20s are the smallest for a WK2.
..and not all 20s. They need to be the proper offset and design to clear.
