SRT Brake and Tire Profile on 2015 WK2 Altitude

Does anyone have any expertise or experience on mounting a 20X10 wheel and 295/45R20 tire with Brembo 6 piston calipers corresponding rotors on a WK2 Jeep GC Altitude? Many thanks.

Thank you. Does anyone know the offset specs needed? Also, one Jeep expert opined that the 10 inch width will not grip as well as the standard tires in rain. This didn't make sense to me. Thoughts anyone? BTW, what wheels are those in the pic? Nice.

The standard 20" tire on the Altitude is horrible and just about any other tire would be an improvement. Grip will be more dependent on the compound and siphoning design of the tire.

The wheels in my signature are standard Altitude wheels with 285/50/20 Cooper Zeon LTZ's.
Thank you again - please expand on "The standard 20" tire on the Altitude is horrible..." Why?

You're right. I didn't. Very insightful.

All - I've owned Jeeps exclusively all of my life and just bought a WK2 Altitude. I'm pleased to be on the site to get information. I'm not here to engage in juvenile banter or feed trolls. If anyone has any useful information to answer my questions about blacking out window trim and the advantages of wider tires on the WK2, I'd very much appreciate it. Have a blessed day. Thanks.
