WK Wheels For Lifted Application
 
So some of you may have seen that the wife wants to lift the GC.... So here I go...

Currently I am running the SRT Replicas at 20x9 with 34.7mm offset.

I found a set of 18x8.5 wheels with a 19mm offset and a 5.5" backspace.

From my calculations this will stick out just over 1/4" further which is not too bad for a lifted application and have just under 1" more of clearance inside which should allow things to clear the bolt without trimming...

Is this correct? I want to run between a 31 and 32 inch tire. All Terrain most likely but a MT might work as well. Will I have rubbing issues on the bolt or pinch weld?

The vehicle will now be running the daystar 2" poly lift on the HD Bilsteins front and rear.

Here is the wheel she likes

You don't say what year WK, but in '07 Jeep changed brake calipers that will restrict your wheel choice (if you have an '07+)...
