New owner questions
 
Hi,

Got mine Gr Cherokee 2011 yesterday (great car!) and I have some question to the members. Any good OEM accessories online store you might suggest? Any discounts for forum members? Justforjeeps.com coupon posted on this site expired long ago... :( Also I ordered set of Blizzaks, do you know if 2008 Grand Cherokee Laredo rims will fit 2011 model well? Bolt patern seem Ok on first look. I have set of them from mine previouse Jeep.


Thanks!

Try " save10 " on justforjeeps, it's 10% off 100$. I I used it a few weeks ago.

you're welcome, and the bolt pattern is the same. edit- don't know how well they'll clear the brakes though.

Thanks, I guess I will try one front to see if OK. I am planning to use them for Blizzaks.

It appears the same wheels will work per tire rack winter package configurator. Perhaps you can can have the shop check the fit before you pay for the tire mounting.

I would be skeptical of the 17" rims, they might not clear the brakes on the 2011. 18" is the smallest the factory puts on the 2011's.

This site has pretty good prices although I haven't ordered anything from them. I'm looking at the Rock Rails as they are about $138 cheaper than MSRP and I believe the shipping is free.
