Black Wheel options ?
 
Hi guys...

I bought a 2011 Laredo X a few weeks ago for my wife. Black on black, with the 5.7. It's our third GC, and we're very happy with it so far. :thumbsup:

I want to replace the stock wheels with some aftermarket ones. I'm having trouble finding all black rims....most have some chrome or aluminum accents. Can anyone recommend a wheel?

Thanks. :thumbsup:

18x9 it's only an 18 off set so they will stick out about 3/4 of an inch.

An 18x9 wheel with +12 offset will stick out 1.7" farther than stock. I too am looking for a good black wheel. So far, the closest to factory 56.4 offset is the XD series Monster wheel with 35mm and it's an 18x9. I am concerned about any significant changing of the scrub radius, offset, and impact on the wheel bearings, contact patch, and handling.

If you want 20" wheels - Factory Reproductions has all black wheels.

You have found the only all black wheel that even comes close to being near the correct +56mm offset. Every other aftermarket wheel I've found for a WK2 has an incorrect offset. Most of these wheels are made for JK Jeep wranglers as the aftermarket does not seem to actually make or support any wheels specifically for 2011+ WK2's! Many of these wheels will bolt up, but not look right, nor with they perform correctly as they all stick out significantly from the wheel wells. No one seems concerned that they are mounting the incorrect wheels on their 2011+ Grand Cherokees. :confused:

Damn...you got me discouraged now.:(. Good feedback from everyone. There aren't any 18x8 black aftermarket wheels out there for the WK2's? 18 x 9's only?
