Re: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8...in the wild!

I can get over the rear being blah but those wheels are horrid. IMO the SRT design team took a swing and missed with the wheels.

Looks like a 3.6 WK2 to me.

And those wheels.............

Re: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8...in the wild!

Awesome! New pictures! Thanks, Scott.

That red is something else. If I wasn't in love, I definitely am now.
I like that back end, very modern. And those meaty tires, damn!

I hope they offer other wheels. At least one that is chrome.
I wish that center stack and the area beneath it was covered in carbon fiber including the shifter knob.

Re: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8...in the wild!

Doesn't look aggressive enough IMHO.

WK srt8 looks so much better from behind... and let's face it, that's the only view people should have of you on the road in an srt8

Thumbs down What were they thinking?.....

Worst OEM wheels I've seen offered for a vehicle that sits in the high performance class.

I wouldn''t even consider them "acceptable" for a base model.

"OEM take-offs" better order in a whole bunch of 40ft storage containers.

Overall style is on the bland side.

Only positive thing I have for now is....Love the color!

Re: 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8...in the wild!

I guess I am one who likes the whole package.
The wheels are fine, they show off the brakes and are nice and wide.
I do not know what people expect, as they cannot please everyone.

+1

I agree, I like the entire package, including the wheels. People seem to forget these are one piece forged aluminum, you aren't going to replace these with a similar quality wheel for less than $4000......

Hell, most have never seen them in person yet they feel compelled to ream Jeep a new one because they don't "look cool". I feel for the Jeep designer's, they have a thankless job.
