Put 18" black mopar wheels on today
 
I had the 18" black mopar wheels with Goodyear wrangler silent armors put on my Overland today. I can say they ride is a lot better with these than with the 20's. One thing I realized after they installed them is they look like crap with Blackberry, they would probably look good with white or red or almost any other color. The new tires look great though so that kind of helps to offset the black wheels. I am keeping the 20's and having the Forterias remounted for the spring time. I had Michelin latitude Hp on the 20's but told the shop to keep those, they gave a trade in for them. The Michelin handled good, but the sidewall are too stiff I think. It was fine on smooth roads, but I would cringe whenever I saw rough pavement coming. Overall these new tires make a lot less noise than I expected but have a good smooth ride.

+1 on 20's ride quality, they sure look best but a set of 18's brings back drivability over crappy roads :thumbsup: i'll switch back come spring to see if i missed them ;p

When I switched back to the 20s from my winter 18s, I noticed the ride got firmer but the steering seemed rather more direct.

There's a tradeoff, but I personally would have taken the 18s on my Overland if there had been a choice.

I notice quite a difference in the ride quality. I now have the soft air suspension ride. Iwill post some pictures as soon as I get a camera, mine stopped working. I was wondering if others with the air suspension have noticed over real rough roads that the steeing wheel seems to rock back and forth quite a bit? This is something I have noticed from day 1.

Considering the black mopar wheels... where did you buy them, and what did you pay?

Got mine from the dealer before the GC was delivered. He cut me a deal.

There's a dealer out of Chicago I've been talking to and he quoted me $810 for a set of four shipped.
