Picking up a 2012 Grand Cherokee limited.

The significant other was bugging me for a new vehicle since she was sick of her 2003 Suzuki grand vitara.. so we decided on a 2012 GC limited w/ the hemi and 6speed auto. Got the tow package, panaromic roof, 730nav? and the collision / adaptive cruise control option. (not sure if that last one is worth it, but whatever)

We looked everything from touaregs, ML350's, X5's, Xterras.. but for the price the GC was the best sounding/looking option imho.

We're getting the 20" factory wheels, I want to pick up some 18's for winter tires, what options would you recommend ? I didn't like the ones on tirerack. :P

Well worth it once you get to using it. We never would have sprung for it had it not been for the many (earlier) comments in JG, basically saying they didn't want it but it came with the car and they now wouldn't do without it.

Ditto the pano roof.
