What is a reasonable price for "New" 18" Take-Offs
 
I'd like to get a set of 4 18" Wheels with TPMS and the Michelin Latitude tires. The exact same ones on my 2014 Limited.

What's a reasonable price to pay?

I want the ones that look like these.

Are the 18" Wheels that have a similar spoke pattern on 2013 Jeeps, the exact same wheel, TPMS and Tire?

Any advice in MA or NH to find a set locally?

Thanks for any advice.

I would consider RIMs only too.

I saw that ebay deal. No mention of TPMS. So they have to be added and remounted and rebalanced. Plus $175 to ship and weird looking hub covers which need to be replaced.

Well, I guess if you want factory perfect, with all the bells and whistles, you should get a price from your dealer. And if you can find them cheaper anywhere else, grab them. The eBay wheels are way cheaper than factory price, but they do leave a little to be desired. Have you looked in any junk yards? I'm sure there are already a few crashed '13 and '14s in the larger metropolitan areas.

I found a one week of use take offs from a limited for $900 (that was the price for wheels, tires, caps, nuts, the entire package...) Ended up paying $500 for only the wheels + $50 tpms on ebay. I think that was a great price, and not really easy to find! ebay prices are around $1300 which is already much better than dealer prices...

the 14 Limited/ORAII wheels are different than the 13 wheels, they are darker, like a darker grey color instead of the bright silver color.

keep looking on ebay and craigslist, sooner or later you will find it, I think most of the people are replacing the 18" for 20" on Limited model, that was the case for the ones I got...

I ended up getting these that were very reasonably priced.

They are 2014 New Take-Offs from a Durango and I like the wheel as Much as the Limited. Exact same size. Nice little change for the season. I still need to get TPMS though.

Trying to decide between Nokian Snows and Michelin X-Ice. I think I'll got with X-Ice. They sound like they are really good on dry roads, which is 95% of the time even in bad winters in NH/MA. I've had great luck with both brands in the past.

Nice wheels! Great for the second set! The price can't get much better than that, nice deal!

I'm also looking for snow tires! The dry/wet performance of the x-ice is also making me go for it, even though not the best ice/slush traction based on what I've read. But even though I drive up to the mountains every weekend, the city is mostly dry during the winter, with a few storms! Same for when driving to SLC, highway and city are usually dry while the cottonwood region is getting a dump! The x-ice is pretty expensive though, compared to blizzaks

which nokian were you looking at? for how much did you find it?

also are you keeping 265/60/18? I would check to see if I could go 255/65/18 or 245/65/18, but not really sure this is a good idea!

I think I'm gonna stick with 265/60/18 mostly because I'm staying with the same size RIM. For my wifes car I bought Steel Rims so I picked a narrower tire and a matching RIM for them, smaller RIM diameter too. I put Nokians on hers.

I ran Stock Tires on my 2002 GC and never found it lacking that badly in the snow (227K miles total, 2.5 sets). So any snow tire I think will be fine in the snow. The X-Ice is also Low Rolling Resistance (seems counter intuitive :))

Problem with Blizzaks (I've had the originals before) is they wear fast and after they are half worn the "Special" rubber is gone. I know that is not the case with Nokian's and last a long time. My wifes last car had 225K over 10 years and I had ONE set of Nokian's the whole time. I had to replace the RIMs because they were so rusty.

If I get Nokian's it would probably be here. Not sure which ones. I know I won't use studs. I bought my wifes from here and had no issues with them.

I don't know if the X-Ice have the special compound only on half the tread like Blizzak's. If they do, I'll get Nokians. It specifically says this in the Blizzak descriptions. Not sure about ALL Blizzaks though. Fresh Blizzaks are amazing in the snow.

Reading reviews on Blizzak's I constantly see folks bragging they got 3 Seasons out of them. Big whoop, I got 10 out of the Nokian's. And we do a lot of miles (20K a year, my guess is they had about 70K miles on them)

I was all set to get the X-Ice tires and noticed they don't make an X-Ice Xi3 in 265/65R18 only Xi2. The Xi3 is a much better tire. And that is what folks are comparing to Nokians and Blizzaks these days.

there is no latitude xi3 that's too bad, since xi3 is the next step up from michelin!

The nokians gets wonderful comments from everyone on the web, and most people complain about the 55% special compound on the blizzaks, although not sure I've heard the blizzaks have a higher tread than the nokians, have no idea if this is true or not and the special compound would go up to 6.5/32 in the tread, but who knows...

the thing is the blizzaks are about $75 less per tire than the price I've found on the nokians which are about $250 the blizzaks are $175+ rebate on tirerack
