Re: srt8 Wheel

Well Im going to look into some 255 45 20 tires. I think the 275 45 20's look good on a wj but a little wide/big. The stock wheels on a wj are slightly smaller than the wk too. The wj has a 235 65 17 and the wk has 245 65 17 for stock. This makes the 255 45 20 only .04% difference in diameter than stock on a wj.

Scott, I think what you said about doing 255 45 20 only if you plan on lowering the jeep applies to the wk but Im not sure a wj since there is a difference in stock tire size. The 255 45 20 is like exactly the same diameter as the stock on a wj but on a wk its a 1/2 inch smaller diameter than stock hence you should lower your jeep.

Am I right in my thinking on this Scott?

Re: srt8 Wheel

robpp do you have a picture of your 255/50 on your viper replicas? are they 20s or 22s, i really like the look of the vipers, but i dont want rubber band like tires, so i was curious how a different size tire would fit/fill up the wheel well?

these are 255/50-20. if you use the calculator and compare to 245/65-17 that my jeep came with. thesde are about a 1/2 inch taller. equals about 1 MPH slow.
