Offset help needed...

Okay, so I'm not getting wheels until spring but I still want to get everything figured out so I'm ready to go then. The wheels I'm looking at are 22x9 but offset is +15, I read on here that we shouldnt go less then +30 because of them sticking out...how far will these stick out on a WK with SRT springs? Will it look out of place completely? What's the deal with the Chargers and Magnums having the capacity for these wheels but not an SUV!? I've photoshopped them and I like them above everything else I've seen but not at the expense of them not looking right. Any/All input is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!!

What Wheels are they? and it would be better if you get 30+ and above so you can be sitting flush

If not those...I'm thinking the viper reps like you Jaybee...they look amazing on a Jeep but I don't feel like they will look as good with just SRT springs for as far as lowering. Any thoughts/opinions? Does anyone have viper reps on a WK setup?

Re: Offset help needed...

You sure the kmc novas have the 5x127 boltpattern? I see the LX guys on dair cars dair nice but I don't think they will fitt...You want 22x9 all around?

Yes, they sell 5x127 in the 22x9 Nova's. I would like to stay away from staggered wheels because I don't want two sized of tires for rotation purposes. What are your thoughts? I'm new to the SUV thing, I sold my 04 Grand Am SC/T for the GC, big change. I can't speak from experience anymore, it's on the forums knowledgeable members now! Can one do non staggered vipers?

Re: Offset help needed...

Then You shuld be good but im not too sure on the offset maybe if u can try one on see how far out they stick out....I feel you man u came to the right place....If you go non staggerd personally i woyld go with a 265/40/22 Tire all around it nice on side wall and you will NOT have no rubbinng or turning issues i promise....You can buy the 22X9 with the 35+ offset Viper wheels Gloss Black Their is a member who has this set up

Re: Offset help needed...

I was planning on the 265/40...I read that was the biggest without rubbing. Any idea which member has that set up? You think the gloss black would look good on the white WK? I didn't know between the satin and gloss which would look better! I kill my girlfriend talking about this stuff so I am glad I get to take it out on you guys now!!

Or gray...they look pretty dark. Maybe just enough different for a bit of character?

Re: Offset help needed...

Lol im searching the guy that has the 22"x9 all around he has them on a Kahki Jeep Looks Sick i cant find the thread give me a sec.........I see you have plastidiped your Grill and Front bumper So i would go with Gloss Black and if you dont like the shiny on the rims just plastidip them for a flat look or you can always powdercoat them...Im be honest if you powdercoat them in WHITE!!!!!! Damn!!!! it would looks sick the possibilities are endless its your Jeep your decision but i know YOu want to see the visual side of thing before pulling the trigger so let me continue to look for the pics lol
