Here's mine on gloss black powder coated OEM SRT wheels with stock Pirelli Scorpion 295/45 tires.
Mods that you can see besides the wheels are gloss black wrapped window trim and tail light bezels, SRT LED fogs, lowered 1" on my custom suspension links, tint matched front windows.

Haha! Good catch! These are the wheels I bought. OE dupes that fit the non-SRT models. OEM SRT wheels would require wider tires at 20x10 vs mine at 20x9. Wanted to retain stock tires.

that's awesome - i want to keep same size if possible too and put my current new tires on them.


I'm never too sure on ebay - but if you say they're legit than thats helps

I'll probably wait a few months for the down payment and a few payments into the loan before i throw down again

Thanks

What size center caps do those accept if you don't mind me asking? Trying to get some Jeep gloss black caps for my SRT reps, but there are so many sizes. I emailed the guy I bought them from and he said 71mm which is nowhere to be found...

Re: 2015-2016 High Altitude Owners Thread

Are there any issues with original SRT rims? Because I see people doing replicas versus the real deal. Is it clearance issues on non SRT models or just savings including not having to change tires?

Tires for me. I still get the same 20" wheels, but get to retain brand new stock tires. Seemed like a win/win.

No clue, I didn't even know there are different size center caps. As far as I know all 2011-2016 use the exact same size center cap and they are all interchangeable.

No issues whatsoever. Any 2011+ Grand Cherokee wheel will fit any model Grand Cherokee...with exception to putting non-SRT model wheels on an SRT because brake size. So an OEM 20x10 SRT wheel will fit any model Grand Cherokee....Laredo, Limited, Overland, Summit etc...No fitment issues whatsoever, even using the original 294/45/20 wheels.

The wheels pictured on mine above are OEM 20x10 with original 295/45/20 Pirelli tires. My High Altitude is even lowered slightly. The only issue I found is that the Jeep does seem to ride pretty firm with those huge runflat tires. It also tracks the pavement grooves more than I would like. Put it this way, with the stock tires you can basically let go of the steering wheel and it tracks straight and is overall a comfy ride. With the SRT wheels/tires its pretty firm and the Jeep wants to roam a lot. It was enough so that I decided to just go back to my original High Altitude wheels. Not only that, but the SRT wheels/tires are extremely heavy compared to non-SRT wheels.
I am not very familiar with aftermarlet wheel setups, but it looks like there are some nice ones available. The width of the SRT wheels and tires is what really drew them to me and gives a much more aggressive look where as the stock non-SRT tires are sort of skinny. Still looks cool though!

Great service when you buy a 55k truck!

He really seemed like he had no interest in fixing this for me.
After the 3 week mark, I called and left a message, but I have no confidence that he even cares about getting me the right armrest.

Is my only option to try another dealer? or is there some group at Jeep I can call that can help the service manager understand that this is an error that should be corrected?

You should find customer service phone numbers in your users manual. That's the starting place.

Re: 2015-2016 High Altitude Owners Thread

Thanks guys! Yeah I love the look of the wide wheels/tires, but the tracking like wheels are on rails does pose as an issue.
