Wheels!
 
Alright guys, I am still planning on buying rims in the very near future... pretty much when I find the prices I want I'm going to start buying. The big questions is... what do I get? ha

Options are:
1) 20" SRT reps
2) 22" in something else
3) Wait for 22" Viper reps

I am not going to wait monthes and monthes for the Viper wheels but if we can get a guaranteed release date in the next month or 2 then I will wait. I'm getting ready to email Factory Reproductions and see if I can get anything out of them.

Also, where is the best place online to buy tires for good prices? Ebay?

Opinions please...

I think a set of black SRT8 reps would look good on the silver jeep.

I would definitely do the black Reps BUT with all the chrome trim and probably not having the money to get all the chrome trim painted silver, I was probably going to do chrome

Ya i'm thinking the same thing. I sent an Email to Factory Reproductions asking them about the Vipers so well see what kinda response I'll get. I definitely want to do something within the next month so if they still don't have a set date in the next few weeks then im going to do chrome reps. Where should I get tires at?? Ebay? What are your guys recommendations on brand and sizes? I would do the 20x10 and 20x9 wheels

not necessarily... im planning on keeping my stock wheels and tires for the winters. I do need something half decent in rain though as it is my DD

hmmmm.....I luv my runflats...but some people dont. they are great in all situations...but pricey. I was gonna suggest finding one of the nuts on the cherokeesrt8.com that are selling a low mile set and get them. stay under 5000 miles if you get a used set and have them road force balanced and get the alignment for sure. If you have trouble...PM me I have two rear SRt tires just setting here...but one of them was patched.

Re: Wheels!
 
What about something not as pricey but obviously still a good tire? and what about size?

I'd rather pay the extra $$ and have the protection in case of a flat.

I would try tirerack.com. I'll be a little to worried about buying tires and or wheels from ebay.
