2012 SRT rim and tire issue - help needed

Hi, let me introduce myself as I am new to this forum. My name is Chris and I have a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Diesel. I recently purchased a set of 2012 SRT Jeep GC rims and tires (295/45/20). I was assured by the seller that they would fit my jeep but after seeing them and trying to put one on the front I found they were too wide and wont fit.

Does anybody know if there is a way to make these fit? Spacers maybe? Not sure if spacers will work as the tire could potentially stick out a little too far.

Any help is appreciated, not sure what to do.

Thanks

Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
Well on the WK1 SRT8 the max tire ran was usually a 275 up front. The 295 is too wide to fit for sure. I don't think the 10" wheel fits up front either. The SRT8 used 9" wheels up front.

A spacer would probably be the way to make them fit. But not sure if that's even possible? Seems like it'd need to be a good sized spacer.

Re: 2012 SRT rim and tire issue - help needed

I saw a thread somewhere where someone had to use spacers to fit wk2 overland wheels on a wk1, so you will deffinately need some for the srt's.

Dont just do the fronts or it will look odd
