Re: Viper wheels on a WJ??

not that I listen to other opinions often, but I would go with SRT reps or another 5 spoke option. I know I didn't and regret it a little.

Re: Viper wheels on a WJ??

lets not forget that his WJ stock wheels are cast..........hence the vipers or most any cast wheel will weigh about the same. of course there wioll be diff from a 17 to 20 but not HUGE.

if the WJ came with forged wheels, like a SRT, then you MIGHT have an argument. However, in the srt8 case, replica vs. OEM, the diff is less than 2 pounds per wheel.

lastly, unless the WJ is going for a land speed record or other racing milestone, a few pounds of unsprung weight is NO BIG DEAL.

Re: Viper wheels on a WJ??

ok so i did some price checking, for just the wheels. $1030 shipped. now the wheels/tires is $1663 shipped. would it make more sense to just buy the tires seperatly??

I think you should save up for both wheels and tires at the same time. Lessen the hassle of looking for tires.

I actually didn't do it myself (had some body work done and the guys did it for me) haha although I hear its a pretty easy mod (hair dryer or some really hot weather, time, and some floss/fishline ).

Yeah to play it safe, I would do it at the same time of the body work. I have to go for round 2 of body work but I have to save up $$$ too.
