Commander Wheels.

Has anyone fitted 17" wheels from a Commander onto a Grand Cherokee WK?
If so does anyone have any photos they can post to see what they look like.
Got the chance of a set of 5 with brand new General tyres at a real good price on Ebay over here in the UK.

Re: Commander Wheels.

What size tires?

The XK wheels have the same bolt pattern, offset and backspacing as the Wk wheels, so they will fit. But the size of the tires might not fit depending on your jeeps set up.

Re: Commander Wheels.

Tyres are same size 245/65x17 General.
Just wondered if anyone had any photos?
I will probably fit Spidertrax 1" spacers and use these as my summer set.
Using my stock rims with Cooper Discoverer ATR's for winter.
I have been looking for SRT or Startech wheels for summer use but there arent many around in the UK.

Re: Commander Wheels.

Offset is different between them depending on which site you read. They will be out board an extra 6mm from memory.

Re: Commander Wheels.

That is the only site I have found that lists them the same and emailed them about it 2 years ago and they didn't bother responding even though I sent many links showing the difference in the offsets.

Re: Commander Wheels.

I know they are different as have read many times of people changing to them from stock rims to get more clearance away from the ball joint bolt.

Re: Commander Wheels.

I believe you. Its just that of all the site to be wrong, I wouldn't think it would be xkjeeps.com.

Re: Commander Wheels.

Got the chance of a set of Wrangler 17" Saharas but tyre size is 245/75x17. These are take offs from a Wrangler will they fit or will I have clearance problems?

Re: Commander Wheels.

What is the current set up of your WK? are you lifted? do you have wheel spacers? have you done the pinch weld mod? etc.....

Re: Commander Wheels.

My Jeep is stock height with no pinch mod, not a problem if I have to cut the upper balljoint stud!
