2011 18" Overland Wheels on 05 no spacers??

Got a great deal on the 18's with the bonus of having tons of life left on the OEM 265/60 rubber. These bolt up fine with no need to trim the bolt or do the pinch weld mod. Problem is that 5.52 MM offset difference on the new wheels. The inside of the tire is rubbing on the strut support. My question is.. how are guys running WK2 OEM 20's with the same offset and have no rubbing without spacers? See below thread

Pics of 2011 Overland Wheels on my 2005 Hemi

...no spacers on HemiHipp's 05

Additional info on my 05:

Stock suspension & stock height to be upgraded to Bilstein HD's and rear SRT sway bar upon mounting of 18's.

any help is appreciated!

Re: 2011 18" Overland Wheels on 05 no spacers??

I'm curious about this too. I have just bought some 2012 18" and hoped fitment would be ok. Although I was planning on needing 1" spacers due to different offset. I will follow to see how this plays out for you..

Re: 2011 18" Overland Wheels on 05 no spacers??

update on progress.

spacers are needed with the 265/60/18 rubber..for those of you that say "duh" read the thread attached above...that makes me go "doh!" maybe 245 could have provided enough space to clear the strut support but that would just not look right. as noted above no need for a pinch weld mod just cut the bolt.

with 25mm Eibachs fitment is good. nice aggressive stance with a sliver of rubber outside the wheel wells. Will opt for 255/60's when the 265's need to be replaced and that should put them just at the edges.

Problem / concern now is lug nuts seating and integrity. Yes the og 17" lugs fit but really cause concern with performance/safety. The lugs that came with the 18's are are larger than the 17's (hex & thread 15/16 vs 13/16 on hex). The hex isnt the problem its the threading. references have both the WK & WK2'S listed at 1/2" but the WK2's are bigger and wont thread on the Eibach's. Maybe the seller of the 18's gave me the wrong lugs? Will post another thread looking for an answer.

Maybe replacing the bolts on the spacers will be the answer if at all possible..

Look inside of those lugs that won't thread on and look for signs of cross threading. That idea just hit me!

Those 18s look awesome. Actually like the idea of those instead of a set of reps. Are they chrome or like the WK chrome rims with covers? Nice job, so a 1/4" spacer is all you need?

No covers. They are nice. I'm using a 1" Eibach spacer. See the lug nut thread for more info and feedback.

I like them. Very classy- I'd like to swap my 18" Sahara rims for these down the road. I'd be interested how they hold up a winter. I know the WJ chrome didn't fair too well and would flake and look like ass.

Some pics with 18" with 1" spacers, will not clear without spacers with the 265 tires.
