Stock wheel compatible with 08 WK?

I'm searching various wreckyards and ebay for some spare wheels to mount some winter tires on (might as well start now!).

I recall reading a thread that said all 2005-2009 WK wheels fit on any WK without spacers.

Now in searching ebay, there are lots of wheels for 2005-2007, but they don't say they fit on 2008.

Does anyone know if all 2005-2009 WK wheels are interchangeable is there a difference in the 2008-2009 wheels?

Re: Stock wheel compatible with 08 WK?

Im not 100% sure, but I would think 05-09 are all the same. I will try and find out for you. Google time.

Oh, and i have my stock rims from my 05 Laredo, I really dont think I will be using them anymore. Just going to run these srt reps on year round, why not right? So i will prob be selling em.

Re: Stock wheel compatible with 08 WK?

thanks for the replies guys!

I will try to find a set of 4 stock wheels with the TPMS already on.

Not sure why the ebay sellers do not say their wheels fit newer than '07, seems they are missing a market for guys like me looking for an affordable set of spare wheels.

Re: Stock wheel compatible with 08 WK?

The only reason there is a year differentiation on the internet is because of the year it was offered on the jeep. Some wheels were only offered on certain years.

I have 18" 2008 Wrangler sahara wheels for me jeep, they will fit all years.

The wrangler X and rubicon 17" wheels will only fit 05s and some 06s because in 06 they changed the brake calipers on the wk and those wrangler wheels will not fit on newer jeeps.

But All WK wheels will fit all years of Wk jeeps, if you are looking to commanders and Wranglers you may need to do some more research first but 90% of them will fit as well.

Most WJ 17" wheels will fit as well and vise versa but not the WJ 16" wheels.

Re: Stock wheel compatible with 08 WK?

Glad i could help, If you find a set of stock jeep wheels from another model you want, post it up here and i am sure we can tell you if they will fit or not.

No XJ cherokee(84 to 01) wheel will fit, No ZJ grand cherokee (93 to 98) wheel will fit and no WJ grand cherokee (99 to 04) 16" wheel will fit, No KJ Liberty wheel will fit, and obv, no compass and patriot wheels will fit, No YJ/TJ wrangler (86 to 95 and 96 to 06) wheels will fit. Most JK wrangler 17" plus wheels will fit but like i said some may not depending on year of the WK.

Re: Stock wheel compatible with 08 WK?

too bad the WK can't fit my rims lol, I like them and since they're smaller they weigh less than your heavy 17's and 18's lol which is great for gas mileage. I'm looking for a set of light weight 18's though.

Re: Stock wheel compatible with 08 WK?

their most likely lighter since the WK's tire profile, width, and rim size are larger than the WJ's so I think it'd be safe to say that my tire assembly is lighter than the WKs

laredo, limited, overland, and possibly SRT (that's if'y though)

Re: Stock wheel compatible with 08 WK?

That means nothing, its all in the technology that went in to the design the wheels. They are making materials that can be lighter and stronger but still be bigger then its predecessors.

For all you know, stock WK 17s might be lighter then yours because of technology and materials used.
