Snow Rims and Tires
 
So I was thinking about getting a second set of wheels strictly for the winter. Im thinking about going with some steelies, and Blizzaks.

This was what I came up with,

Pro Comp 97-7973 - Pro Comp Series 97 Rock Crawler Xtreme 1-Piece Gloss Black Steel with 5x5 Bolt Pattern in 17x9 Size & 4.25 Backspacing - Quadratec

CHeck your spare tire size, pretty sure with the Hemi engine you have to use an 18" rim to clear brakes etc. my spare is an 18" rim and that is what I will be purchasing next week.

A decent 18" alloy wheel will run you around $140. Last Dec got 18" alloy wheels, Blizzaks and the 4 TPMS for around $1400 from my tire guy out the door and on the my WK2. No shipping and lifetime rotation and balancing.

And people sell their OEM takeoffs all the time for way cheaper than those procomps. I let mine go for $150 for all four.

Got my set from discount tire shipped to my door ready to bolt on for $999. They are 17" aluminum wheels with hankook ipike tires. I highly reccommend the ipikes(have them on both vehicles) and discount tire. My setup did not include TPMS and I was able to go down to 17 since I have a v6. My 2 cents

What can the offset be/or should be on 18 inch by 8 inch wheel for a 2014 Limited? I don't want to pick up the wrong used wheels. Thanks, Dave

Ordered my rims and tires today- my tire guy test fit a 17" steel rim- no dice so had to pony up for the 18" rims ( double the price)
