2012 SRT rim and tire issue - help needed
Hi, let me introduce myself as I am new to this forum. My name is Chris and I have a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Diesel. I recently purchased a set of 2012 SRT Jeep GC rims and tires (295/45/20). I was assured by the seller that they would fit my jeep but after seeing them and trying to put one on the front I found they were too wide and wont fit.

Does anybody know if there is a way to make these fit? Spacers maybe? Not sure if spacers will work as the tire could potentially stick out a little too far.

Any help is appreciated, not sure what to do.

Well on the WK1 SRT8 the max tire ran was usually a 275 up front. The 295 is too wide to fit for sure. I don't think the 10" wheel fits up front either. The SRT8 used 9" wheels up front.

A spacer would probably be the way to make them fit. But not sure if that's even possible? Seems like it'd need to be a good sized spacer.

I saw a thread somewhere where someone had to use spacers to fit wk2 overland wheels on a wk1, so you will deffinately need some for the srt's.

Dont just do the fronts or it will look odd
