Re: 2014 20" pimp daddy wheels

All extremely subjective. To each his own. You have to get what you like yourself, not what someone else tells you is cool. Personally, I ordered the ORA II mostly for the 18" wheels, it's what I like. But, of course I respect everyone's right to like what they want. At the Cleveland Car Show, looking at the 20's next to the 18's, I did think the 20's looked like a higher grade, more upscale wheel. It's just that all by themselves, I prefer the 18's.

You'll like the 20's until you look for new tires: fewer choices, expensive and difficult to balance compared to 18's. Signed, Mr. Practical Oldschool.

Re: 2014 20" pimp daddy wheels

Loved my 20s so much I bought a second set of 20s...and you'd be surprised at how many tire options are available for the 20s...not that uncommon of a size these days.

Re: 2014 20" pimp daddy wheels

The WK2 looks better with 18's that's why I got 20's.

There actually are plenty of tire choices for the 20" wheels. The smaller wheels might get more choices, but most of them are craptastic tires anyway.

Love my stock 20's. wouldn't have bought it if they only came with 18's. everyone will have opinions, thats why they offer choices. But I don't think 20's on the grand cherokee make it look ghetto - I think they complement and fit the vehicle perfectly. If you don't like em, don't buy em.

Yeah those are ridiculous, but the Overland 20" wheels are amazing looking and fits the size of the Jeep perfectly.
The other thing is you do realize besides the finish they are essentially the same 20" wheel that was offered from the start of the WK2 back in 2010-2011. So why the post specifically towards the 2014?
Since you took a stab at the 20" wheels, I'm gonna go ahead and say that because you opted for the small 18" wheels and balloon tires, you just drastically downgraded the looks of your Overland. When I see any WK2 going down the street with the small wheels it just makes it look like a base model.

Yeah this wheel is sooooooo over the top! A very nice and clean 5 spoke 20" wheel on a large SUV. I question anyone's taste who thinks these wheels are "ghetto" durrrrrr


Agreed! I love the look of the 20's on my 2012.......the 20's on the 2014's look awesome!

Re: 2014 20" pimp daddy wheels

Are the 20's on the 2014 the exact wheel on the 11-13 models just darker? They look the same in the picture but you never can tell exactly without seeing them in person. Mine look like that when I haven't cleaned them in awhile. Otherwise mine look the same just a bit brigher.

They aren't the same.

Re: 2014 20" pimp daddy wheels

I really like the 20s. One thing I do wish is that they were SLIGHTLY brighter to more match the chrome outlining on the car. We are looking at Brilliant Black or Granite and in person I find myself wishing the 20s were a touch brighter. Agree they are the only rims I like of the 3-4 options.
