Anyone buying a winter package?....
 
I need to get winter wheels and snow tires, Tirerack doesn't show anything.

Anyone know who to contact for a winter package?

BMD, whether you can get the factory reps or another winter wheel to fit around your beefy Brembo's is one thing, but note that the Blizzak rubber can be had in a 20" size that will likely fit on your current wheelset. No not ideal, but maybe you can get by for this winter without damage to the rims if you wax the heck out of them.

Or maybe winter set your stockers with Bizzaks and go 22" factory reps for summer if the dimensions are GTG?

Im going to just see how the factory tires do on mine. Im in MI so ill be able to test them soon! The first big snow here they did great in 5-6 inches of rough snow. No need to spend thousands on new tires... Although i dont like the rims getting salted..

I wouldn't worry. Even in Boston this year should be fairly mild. Even long term (15 days out) weather models are still pointing at conditions that support above normal temps for quite some time.

I am thinking the same thing. Not excited about the Salt on the rims but assume that they are designed to hold up.

If someone is deadset on finding a winter wheel and tire combo I would suggest starting off with the Factory reproductions of the WK1 SRT8 rear wheels. Before my vehicle came in I was thinking that was the way to go but hearing from a few people that have already had snow has convinced me to wait.

Tire Rack tells me the Pirelli Scorpion Ice and Snow 265/45 20s will fit the stock wheel no problem. Not sure if Jeep would endorse that as no problem for the drivetrain.
