Re: Looking to get new tires. Need opinions!

You have some excellent tires on your list. If I may ask, where do you live? Do you drive in the snow?

We have a great selection of tires in that size and guarantee the lowest delivered price on the internet.

We would be happy to help with your selection if you would like.

Re: Looking to get new tires. Need opinions!

@Discount Tire - I am looking to purchase a set of 20x10 WK1 SRT wheels that have a 71.5mm hub bore with a +45 offset. I need a wider wheel since I want to add the factory Brembo calipers. Is 295/45R20 my best option or can I look at others? I'm lowering my Jeep about 1.5F/2.0R but otherwise nothing too crazy. Also, what are some good tires to look at? I've heard pretty good things about the Yokohama Spec X and the Toyo Proxes, although a tire shop near me said they are NOT good all season tires.

FYI I have a '12 GC Laredo X.

Thank you for reaching out to us. Going with a 20x10 +45 with 295/45R-20 is a good option for tire size and it should fit. We would recommend a test fit to make sure you do not have any rubbing.

Here is a link to the tires we have available in 295/45R20:

295/45R-20 Tires | Discount Tire Direct

The Yokohama Parada Spec-X or the Falken S/TZ-05 are solid tires that work well for many. We have them on sale now through 2-20-17 during our Presidents Day Sale.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Re: Looking to get new tires. Need opinions!

How would I do a test fit? I'm not sure if any shops around here offer that.

Re: Looking to get new tires. Need opinions!

Most shops will do a test fit but not all of them.

I can give you the changes in the wheels dimension so you can measure to see how if you have room.

Going from an 8 inch wide wheel with a 56 offset to a 10 inch wide wheel with a 45 offset will move the inside lip of the wheel 14 mm closer to the suspension. It will also move the outside lip of the wheel out 36 mm from than the stock wheel.

Hope this helps.

Re: Looking to get new tires. Need opinions!

I'm not entirely sure how much mm's are going to make a a difference lol but would 20x8 or 20x9 be a better choice?

Wheel offset and style play a big part in the fit. It is best to compare with all the specs.

A 2012 Jeep SRT-8 comes stock with 20x10 +50 with 295/45R-20 tires. We also show a 20x10 +45 as a fit. It should fit your Laredo X as well. But you may get some fender rub.

Here is a thread that specifically talks about the brembo conversion and what wheels fit.

Hope this helps.
