2011 GC 20in wheels fit on 05 GC Limited?
 
1 Attachment(s)
I made a Craigslist purchase of a set of the wheels that are for the 2011 GC Overland (the 20-inch Satin Carbon Painted Cast Aluminum). My intention is to put them on my 05 GC Limited and am curious about a couple things...

Will I have any problems (with spacing/rubbing) putting the 20in wheels on the 05 GC?

Also, I will need to put some tires on these... any recommendations for good all season performance?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your time

You will have to have spacers for the front due to the bolt. I'm using 16 mm spacer with longer wheel studs and 265/50/20. I barely have enough room. These rims are 56.4 mm offset with rim width 8" the wk wheels are 50.8 mm offset with 7.5" width.

In case you are wondering what they would look like.

You don't need that bolt, cut it down to the nut.

Yeah. I cut mine. With air tools, you can get the nut off after you cut the bolt.

Yeah, I'd take those wheel spacers out. I had one fail on my jeep. I have cut the bolt too.

Wheel spacers killed a friend of mine. Take them off.
