Chrome Class to Bad A$&... My new KMC XD778's on GY Duratrac's
 
I finally did it. After countless hours of looking for wheels that will actually fit the WK2, I took the plunge and bought the following wheel/tire combination:

What I drive: 2011 WK2 Overland Summit Edition, 3.6L Pentastar V6, QL

18" KMC XD778 Monster wheels, Matte Black, 18x9,+35 offset.

Tires: Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac LT275/65/18.

Dont forget to pick up 14x1.5 lug nuts. The OEM ones are too fat for these wheels...

I just got back from getting them mounted! Here is the before and after:

No rubbing at all at normal vehicle ride height. At park there is only a few mm of clearance but I dont do too much moving around at slow speeds in park. FIRE AWAY GUYS/GALS!!

Thanks. You are right, tints would definitely make it look great. I live in PA which has a yearly state inspection. I have to find out if I can get away with it...

What are you doing with the factory wheels/tires?

I don't know yet. The wife is not too fond of the aftermarket wheels. I will post in the for sale thread if I do decide to pull the trigger....

My wife was not too fond of the idea of aftermarket wheels and tires but she changed her mind as soon as I mounted them up. Her first words were wow it looks so much more agressive now. :D
