Cherokee Sport with Trailhawk rims?

We just bought a Cherokee Sport 4x4 and we're wondering if you can put the Trailhawk rims and tires on the Sport model? I know that they are a slightly bigger size, but I like the look of the Trailhawk rims and really need the versatility of the deeper tread on the off-road tires for the winter. And it would just look better than the steel rims and all season tires I have now...
Can it be done? Thoughts? Comments?
Thanks!

Re: Cherokee Sport with Trailhawk rims?

find an aftermarket alternative, factory wheels are always cost prohibitive. Unless you find some on craigslist. I would expect 1000 a wheel

heres some aftermarket ones

I've had 4 Cherokees over the last 20+ years and they always look better with a slightly larger tire on them. I'm curious to see how this generation will look. IMO, I think it'll work.

Re: Cherokee Sport with Trailhawk rims?

Mopar wants $500 each for the Trailhawk Rims. Some online places have them as low as $290. I found a set of MB ICON wheels that are the same size for $109 each at Discount Tire.

They will probalby fit your Sport, but I also think you may experience some slight rubbing while turning and on big bumps.

Re: Cherokee Sport with Trailhawk rims?

They had to put fender flairs on the TH to make it work.

Re: Cherokee Sport with Trailhawk rims?

Wonder what the biggest tire would fit the Cherokee ?
Probably the Trailhawk would be the best to try them... because it comes with the 1" 'lift'.
Just curious. (I'm a fan of the bigger more aggressive tires too)

Re: Cherokee Sport with Trailhawk rims?

Remember the TH sits as taller. The 4x4 versions of the Latitude and Limited and TH with AD II have a small lift. That allows larger tires.

...but not the wider fender flairs of the TH.
