Wheel offset.
I know this has been discussed over and over again but i need a quick answer. What is the best offset for WK wheels, keeping stock size tires, W/O the wheels and tires sticking out. Basically what do i want for an aftermarket wheels but keeping stock specs.

The wheel i am looking at offers -15, +25, +10

Re: Wheel offset.
+30 and up......

Re: Wheel offset.
So the +25 will keep the wheels in the best?

Re: Wheel offset.
Their site labels them as the direct replacement for the wk/xk with the +25. i will call them and ask if they will stick out at all with stock tires. I hope it is not much if they do.

Re: Wheel offset.
thye will stick out at +25....not sure how much. Really depends on the type/design of the wheel. Any 5x127 or 5x5 wheel will fit the wk as long as it clears the calipers.....but what most companies dont do is test their wheels on each vehicle to see whether it sticks out or sunken in too much. The SDRt wheels for example are +35 and +50. So it also varies a little on different widths.

Re: Wheel offset.
I wouldn't go any lower than 30mm for an offset....the SRT's offset of 34.75 equals perfect flushness with the fender....

Re: Wheel offset.
Well, the +25 is the best i can get, i have looked at pics and they all seem to be within the fenders and most of them have larger tires and a lift. So i dont think it will be too much of an issue. I just dont want a ghetto stance. I have some more research to do but i think i will try the +25s.

Re: Wheel offset.
What wheels are you going with Kyle? I thought you were gonna do the machined 18's??

Re: Wheel offset.
Ok fine. I was not going to post them until i have them in a few months because i asked before and i know alot of people dont like them on the wk because they are not blingy enough, But I dont care If you dont like them, Ive wanted a set for years.

AEV Pintler Wheels. 17"x8.5" +25 offset, 5.3" BS. silver finish (could get argent gray but i dont think it will look right)

245/65/17 Nitto Terra Grappler All Terrain tires.

I am not going to lift my jeep or lower it. But i live in NH, we get some Intense winters and there are alot of Country roads that i drive that i want to have a good All terrain tire. But i dont want BFG ATs. I am basically going for the stock 4x4 ability use but still the on road manners, so bilsteins and srt sways are on next years list.

I spent a bit of time editing a pic of my jeep with the wheels and i am 100% convinced that they are what i want.

Re: Wheel offset.
I like those wheels....just wish they were bigger....LOL!(for me)

NHWK05 09-10-2009 08:08 PM

Re: Wheel offset.
Lol, I agree, if they had different sizes that would be nice. The other reason i dont want to go bigger then 17s is tire cost. I can get a hell of a deal on 245/65/17s from a local shop on the nitto tires. Once i go up to 18 it sky rockets.

Re: Wheel offset.
yeah......buying tires sucks ass. Like buying diapers or food...LOL
