Black Mamba's vs. Black SRT-8's Questions-and Pic requests
 
I have a black 08 and I'm wanting to change up my wheels. My original plan was to do Black SRT-8 20" Reps and keeping it a "street" trim ride.

But, after looking at some pics, I'm also considering getting a set of the Mamba MR-1's in black and going with an off road tire, basically the biggest thing I could fit under it without a lift, or doing a BB and something a little bigger.

I love the way BlackoutWK's jeep looks

But I also dig this look as well.

My questions are. . . .

Do the mamba's work on the WK's without spacers to clear the brakes? Or is that just with the Moabs?

With the back-spacing of the Mambas, what size tire can you fit on the WK's with stock suspension?

And any suggestions to help me make up my mind or pics of other rides with either of these set-ups would be greatly appreciated.

I know ultimately I need to decide if I want to go with a street trim Jeep or an Off Road trim, but I want to weigh all the options of each set-up before I pull the trigger either way.

Ain't it, lol

I'd love to see a stock height black WK with Black Mambas and the biggest tires they can take with those wheels without a lift. That would make me very happy, lol

Near Boone, NC sort of in the middle of nowhere, though.

That would be OK, but if I go with the Mambas and rough tires, I'll go with a grill guard, etc. and make it O/R looking so I couldn't pull off the 20s with the low profile tires with it set up like that.

Gotcha. I know a couple of ppl from there that live here now.



You could go with just a roof rack for the O/R accessories and maybe some underbody protection and those can either be removed or transition over to the 20" reps for the winter

Nice ride^^


So, is it for sure that the Mamba's do not require spacers like the Moab's do on the 08s?


I doubt I'd do the dual wheel setup, that would then give me 3 sets of wheels, lol I don't drive the thing enough to need to switch em out. I have my 02 for the winter. But I still live in the country, so I'm a little iffy about putting the 20s on, might be too urban for my neck of the woods.
