Re: Pics of 2011 Overland Wheels on my 2005 Hemi

Thx for the comments everyone...

- Weight - No, I didn't get a chance to weigh the difference yet. That's on the todo list!
- Clearance - It is a bit of a close call. I don't want to deal with spacers if I don't have to. It appears I am going to be just fine. I tried 3 different tire sizes on these wheels, these were the only ones that fit well. I only have about 1/2in clearance to the bolt (looks pretty unnerving when you get under the jeep, but it shouldn't be a problem). I will probably have the bolt shaved down to the nut to make me feel better.
- Rubbing - If I REALLY crank it to the right while in motion, the left tire barely rubs against the sway bar. I am just conscious of it while driving to avoid that.
- Speedo recalibration - I am not too worried about it. I am not an expert... but, as I understand it, the diameter of the tire is what will impact the accuracy of the speedometer. This setup's diameter is almost identical to the stock setup due to the lower profile tire. So, I am not too concerned.

Any of the experts have anything to add??

What did they cost you?-- I think I'll look for the same.

Re: Pics of 2011 Overland Wheels on my 2005 Hemi

Looks really good there.... Hoping to get some of those wheels. Soon!!

Would you think a 275/55r20 would fit? Would spacers be needed?

Thanks, Alex
