Yea I checked it out. Says 395 when building but changes to 1095 when you complete the build when shown on summary breakdown. So who knows what's going on never seen an option go down in price. Unless they make it up somewhere else.

Some days I really like the way it looks with the 20s other days I see one with 18s and like it better. Had my 2014 GC about year and I'm pretty much sure I'm going to get a second set of 18s for winter and off-roadish stuff.
What you need is a set of the old fashioned sports car knock-off quick change wheels, and a small trailer so you can tow one set around, run the other, and change them as your mood strikes you.

Re: Overland w standard 20s or 18s?

I just drove both the 18s and 20s. Definitely different feel. 18 felt softer. More like a Japanese car while the 20s felt tighter. Like a German car. Thoughts? Agree?

If I had the V8 I'd consider it.

Re: Overland w standard 20s or 18s?

I want to find 4 "NATO" style 18" steelies. Like 4 18" wheels like the spare wheel. Anyone know of a place that sells them?

This is going to depend on the tyres used as much as size. I have the soft OEM 20"s and a set of Load Range E 18"s... and the 18"s thump road transition and potholes harder.

I was swapping the wheels back and forth a bit myself, but now tend to just leave the 18"s on.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: Overland w standard 20s or 18s?

Went with the 18's, and would never consider the 20's. Live in Minnesota, and some of the roads can be in bad shape after the harsh winters. 18's will give a smoother ride, and are much more forgiving when you hit a pot hole or two. Less chance of damaging the rims. Also more forgiving when off roading. It will be much cheaper to buy new tires down the road. The 20's are way more expensive than the 18's.
