Thanks,my Hankook Ventus 295x45x20 tracks the road too. Was feeling a little vibration so I went in for a road force balance,but they said they were to far off to balance. Now I'm looking for a new tire. Thanks again...

Re: My new wheels

Just a thought but are you sure it is the tires and not the wheel itself. If you have aftermarket wheels sometimes they may have excessive runout and no amount of balancing will rectify that. If you dismount tires I would have them just throw the wheel(s) on the balancer just to be sure. Would hate to see you buy new tires and have the same issues.

Had the wheels run out before I mounted tires. So I know it's not them.

Re: My new wheels

Ok well try the Generals don't think you will be disappointed. You can also take a look at the Toyo's they seem to get pretty good reviews also both around the same price. I went back and forth between the two but picked the Generals for the squarer shoulder gives them a beefier look.

Re: My new wheels

These are very nice wheels. I love the idea of painted gray spokes and a polished lip – very techy. However, you say “painted with brushed spoke faces.” I thought brushed metal was a process, not a paint. Can you clarify?
Also, my first reaction was that the spokes are a bit spindly for an SUV, but I must admit they look good especially with your Jeep’s color (Billet Silver?).
To me they appear just a tad too wide for the wheel-wells. No spacers, right?

Re: My new wheels

Hi Nikita the brushed look is a process of spraying on the paint and spinning the wheel while holding a brush on the paint. Giving the impression that the wheel was hand painted. I think that is how they do it not 100% sure. I will try to take some close up pics of the wheels so you can see the brush marks. As far as them being to wide they are definitely not they are perfectly flush with the fender flare. No spacers were used or needed as the wheels are 20X10 with a +40 offset. Which calculates the new wheel will stick out an 1" 1/8 further than stock. I spent a lot of time calculating and measuring with different offsets to make sure they did not come past the fender flare. Also the General UHP's are a tad wider than other brands 295's so the sidewall does protrude a little bit past the flare but not the tread itself. Hope this helps you.

Well, great job, it really looks good. Thanks for the explanation. I wasn't aware of this painting process before.
I guess you have air suspension? Have you noticed any rubbing at any ride height or while the steering is at full lock?
BTW, doesn't Overland come with chrome mirrors? If so, yours appear body color. How did you achieve this?

Re: My new wheels

Yes I have the QL air system absolutely no rubbing at all. Remember this is the same size tire and wheel setup that comes standard on the SRT. Except for the offset. So I knew there would be no rubbing or fitment issues. If you really want to see some really nice painted and brushed wheels. Google (Audizinegetyourwheels) you will see some amazing things you can have done to your wheels. Yes you are correct it did come with chrome mirrors but I purchased 2 complete mirrors for a Laredo which come with painted covers and switched them out.
