Re: Srt rims

Will oem or aftermarket chrome or black rims 20" fit on the 05 grand cherokee limited 5.7L without recalibrating the suspension or changing anything with the brakes, like will I be able to just put the rims and low profile tires on the car or am I going to have a problem with suspension or the brakes of the wheels rubbing or not being able to use 4-wheel drive because thats what jeep told me also. They said you would have to change suspension and maybe brakes and that i wouldnt be able to use 4 wheel drive.someone lemme know if ill be able to do it without makin other changes.

Re: Srt rims

you cant just put any 20 inch wheel and tire combo on and be safe.

what i can tell you is if you get the proper wheel/tire combo your jeep will never notice the difference.

use this calculator.

http://www.1010tires.com/tiresizecalculator.asp

you want to stay very close to the same circumference as your stock wheel/tire so use that as a baseline.

Re: Srt rims

^^ Agreed! As long as the rolling diameter is very similar and the bolt pattern and offset are vehicle specific, you will be fine. As for brakes...that all depends on driving habbits and added weight from the wheels. If the new rims and tires weigh more, your stopping distances will increase. I forgot the term but adding weight (i think the term is centrifigual rolling weight) on all four corners can mess up your mpg's and stopping distances BUT with larger wheels there is more rubber on the road and the potential for better handling.

With that said, there are A LOT of peeps on here with the SRT wheels/reps and no issues with their 4wd systems (someone chime in if I am off here)...and some have not done any suspension mods and don't have issues. Keep the diameter the same, ensure accurate offset and right bolt pattern and there should be no issues.

Re: Srt rims

i think the srt reps actually drive better than the stock wheels on my jeep. the handling is much better. I think its cause its wider and puts more tire on the road. the reason why the dealership said that is because they didnt look into the specifics of the wheels and alot of times you can run into problems when putting aftermarket wheels on without researching them first, for example you want the circumfrance to be within 3% or your speedometer is going to be way off and im sure you could run into suspension problems if you put some wacky sized wheels on.

Re: Srt rims

i got mine through factory reproductions, i recomend them if you are going to buy some. you dont need to get stock srt8 tires though, just get some tires you like. I think the best size tire for the 20 x 9 srt reps are 275 45 20.
