No Brainer - Custom Vipers & Tires for WK2
 
Somebody needs to jump on this. Robb's stuff is immaculate. He's breaking his customized rig down to stock for sale and offering up this set at a steal.

Do it.

^My bad. If I recall, the Vipers are the correct bolt pattern 5X127 with a bit less offset of circa +35? Stock WK2 offset is +56.4, so the Vipers will be a bit more paralell to the wheel wheels.

Below is a link to a WK2 with Vipers, he looks to have the staggered set but man it looks sharp. If I didn't already own two sets for mine I would be at your doorstep pronto.

They look great and fit very well on the WK2. I think they look better at the +35 offset which makes them stick out a little more giving the car a wider stance. IMHO, the factory 20X8 wheels are not wide enough. Attached are pics of the 20X9 Viper for Jeep reps on my 2012 Overland with 285/50/20 Cooper Zeon LTZ tires.

Completely agree. Time for Factory Reproductions to make a WK2 Overland rep with lesser offset, and 9" & 10" widths, both in 20" and 22" sizing.

BR, hate to see the Ghost disappear into the night. Hope the next whip is as spectacular.

So who's gonna get this great deal on these Vipers?

I think the Jeep drives/handles better with the wider wheel/tire setup.

I went to SEMA in November and saw the factory one off set of 22" Overland wheels and they looked great. The Factory Reproductions booth was just across from the Mopar booth. I stopped by and asked one of the guys there about 22" Overland reps. He said they had considered making them, but are not going to right now.

I posted some pics here:
