Red W2K's with custom wheels(non-SRT)

I'm not sure how much longer I can stand these 2017 summit wheels.

Looking for pics and ideas on red colored WK2's, just not on SRT's.

It's had to tell what custom wheels will look like on an average jeep, seeing them on an SRT always looks good.

So post some pics if you have a red WK2 with aftermarket wheels.

I'm only looking for 20" and maybe 22" but any size you have might give me an idea. Not sure if she will let me get black but if it looks real good in the photo she might budge.

In my search all I have really seen are SRT's so looking forward to seeing what else is out there.

Red W2K's with custom wheels(non-SRT)

I had every intention of getting a new Summit and going with 22s and the rear lowering links but went with an X5 instead. I started a thread on here about it.

You're better off looking at SRTs because they have almost the same body kit. And most guys aren't doing street setups here on their Laredo/Limited/Overland. And it looks totally different than a Summit would.

Good point.

Pretty sure I want to go with something along this style, but still looking.

Not my ride but definitely my favourite red wk2 I've seen on the forums.

Those are nice and thanks for posting, but they're almost as busy as my oem 17 wheels.

Re: Red W2K's with custom wheels(non-SRT)

I have a 2012 Laredo X. The "street" scene for these Jeeps is definitely smaller than an SRT but it's there. Just have to really look....and if necessary create your own! The red SRT you posted looks to have something similar to a Rennen Forged wheel. The second Jeep appears to have Giovanna's or Gianelle's (same overall brand I believe)? It depends on your price range to be honest. I've always liked the WK1 SRT wheels and the fact that they come in a 20x10. I prefer a little beefier tire as opposed to bigger wheels. My Jeep doubles as my mobile Detailing workhorse as well as my show stopper lol.

I've done a lot of research on stuff so feel free to ask questions. Are you looking to lower it completely or just get shorter end links? I assume you have the air ride system?

Re: Red W2K's with custom wheels(non-SRT)

No I'm not looking to drop it all and yes it has the air ride, just looking for something a little more sporty. The OEM wheels just have too much going on, I'll keep them for traveling and maybe if we go somewhere that has snow and salt on the roads just to preserve the looks of the new aftermarket wheels and tires.

From what I have searched the wheels I like are the 22" VELGEN VMB5 in the matte silver
