New wheels/tires on the rig
 
4 Attachment(s)
Just thought I would show the boys my most recent purchase.

18" 2013 Sahara wheels on dueler A/T 255/70r18's with about 500 miles on them!

No rubbing and no spacers needed and the full size matching spare wheel/tire fit perfectly under the spare tire door.

One thing that was weird; when the tires were cold no tpms light came on but when the tires got warm, it came on. I am thinking maybe bc I had my other wheels in the trunk that maybe there was radio interference, but if not I will just swap out the ones on my stock 17's.

And one last thing... Does anyone know if the Sahara unlimited comes with tpms?

The new wheels really look sharp on your Jeep. Nice job :thumbsup:

Thanks brother. Really pleased about the purchase.

Truth be told I was nervous about the potential for rubbing.. But alas, it worked!

Those wheels look sweet on there. Always have a soft spot for black powdercoating too. :-).

From what I understand about the TPMS, they've been required by law on every vehicle since 08. It's just a difference if you get an actual tire pressure reading in the EVIC or if the light turns on or flashes on the cluster.

Yea. Under the pasti dip is chrome, but the flat black always calls me home.

Since I have a Laredo, it just flashes then stays on. It doesn't measure each tire like on the limited.

Looks great, how is road noise and smoothness? What about highway?

Honestly, I see/hear no real difference from these tires to the stock ones. I mean, slightly more road noise, but with the windows up, you can't hear it at all.

My 2010 came with TPMS but it is different, only good for warning not actual pressure. Looks nice BTW, I want to use my Sahara take-offs but I don't want the larger tires.

looks good! those running boards will really come in handy now with the taller tire you have on.
