Re: Wheel Fitting Help

Hey guys I have that exact wheel on my rig. I run 305s But I think it's a 10.5" wide rim from memory and no scrubbing whatsoever. ATTACH]55183[/ATTACH]ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1429485778.196708.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1429485795.414898.jpg

They look sweet man. Can't wait for mine to come in! Did you order through Element wheels? What offset do you have?

What Is that installed by you under the wheel well over the tire? Is that because they stick out?

They don't appear to have the correct offset and stick out quite a bit.

If anyone is lowering the truck with these seems it may not happen or if it does you could have an issue so be aware of this and future goals..

The AUS models get those little flares standard. Several people have removed them because they don't like them.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think mattando's wheels fit as per OEM. Stand behind your Jeep without those flares and I think the OEM wheels stick out pretty much the same when viewed from the rear of the car.

Thanks for that wonderful comment but I DO have the correct offset,Otherwise YOU also have the incorrect offset as mine is the same as yours. As for them sticking out or scrubbing well they don't never have and never will as they have the same rolling diameter as OEM. They actually finish perfectly flush with the top of the guard. As mentioned by rob the little flares are standard on the Aussie issue srt.

Perhaps the photos don't do them justice as they fit perfectly and I have had many complements about them fitting perfectly with the look of the srt with the deep dish etc. I've been fitting wheels and tyres to cars for over 20 years and I certainly know what im doing. Unlike other trying to install thinner rims than standard or even 20" tyres to 22" inch rims haha good luck with that one.

Yea keep kidding yourself and go look over at the Cherokee srt8 wk2 wheels and tire section forum. There are more people who have been told they had 38 inch offset but infact they were fabricated incorrectly. Yours look exactly like theirs. Mine look flush. Apparently they hired a new fabricator and he botched a batch of wheels. Most of them returned them.

You have absolutely no proof that your wheels are 38 offset they are custom drilled blanks from bmw originally 5x120 72.56 +20.

Your pictures look off compared to us who got earlier production batches. Just giving you a heads up.

Re: Wheel Fitting Help

If you think you might have received the wrong offset on your wheels. There is a simple way to check it out. For your your wheel 22X10.5 offset +38 the backspacing should be 185MM which is 7.3 inches. Just lay a flat edge across the back of the wheel lip and measure down to the mounting pad of the wheel. If you do not come up with these numbers you have the wrong offset. If you want to double check your offset you can measure from centerline of wheel to the mounting pad which should come out to 1.5 inches for a +38. Hope this helps.

And your bagging this ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1429772136.902459.jpg
