Low offset wheels 2014 WK2 Laredo
 
Hi guys

Getting excited about picking up our new jeep.
First time jeep owner and first time new car owner so going to be 'epic' as the youong fold say these days.

Well ive never had a standard looking car and buying a new car wont stop me. I even negotiated with the stealer that my 3yr waranty doesnt get affected by different springs and mags.

Ok now for my question.

Has anyone done low offset wheels on a 2011+ jeep, i assume that the 2011+ jeep is the same as the 2014 model ?
Looking at a set of 20x8 +15 mags at the moment but was thinking of going 22's.

If anyone has gone to 22's and eibachs, what is the ride like ? My wife will be driving it most of the time so dont want to make it too uncomfortable but i want to 'adjust' our basic laredo a little.

c'mon fellas :)

Im thinking 22x10 +40 all around

so basically 1cm more outside to srt8 mags (on a laredo)

or

22x9 +25
22x10 +40

so basically 1cm more outside to standard mags up front (on a laredo)
AND 1cm more outside to srt8 mags out back (on a laredo)

At the moment am loving the lexani r7's or r6's

Reviving your thread a bit.

I'm not lowering my WK2 Limited, but rather lifting 1.75" using an RRO leveling kit in order to fit a set of 20x9 ET18 XD Monsters wrapped in 275/55R20 Nitto Terra Grappler rubber. Tried it out with stock suspension and the driver front tire just barely caught the backside of the front bumper (very corner) when turning to the right. But when trying to straighten it back out, it pushed that corner out, which would've likely damaged the bumper cover at speed. Actually destroyed one of the plastic pop rivets at one point. So the leveling kit should eliminate the problem. Wouldn't have been an issue with a +35 offset, but I like the stance with the +18 much better. Puts the tire out of the fender wells about 1/2-3/4". And with the lift, it'll look that much better.

Doubt it'd work on a lowered rig, though. At least not with that size tire. Might work with a +25, though. It's a little less aggressive at least.

I ended up going for srt8 specs on my laredo which i am glad about, only thing i would do differently is use smaller width rims and stick to 265/275's all around. the srt offset on the laredo is already considered a low offset with the way it sits filling the guards and really sets it off.

I noticed you said you bought the replica srt wheels off eBay. I too and thinking about getting the 2014 srt 20s. I have a 2014 limited. What size tires are you running and did you have to do any adjustments prior to putting the rim and tires on.

I bought from stockwheelsolutions and i definitely would not recommend them. They take ages to respond to you when you have an issue and are offering me $100 refund because they supplied me the incorrect colour. AFTER i repeatedly told them i wanted black.
Go figure.
Anyways i havent tried fitting the wheels as i also got a set of 22" that were on sale. I made sure i ran a non chinese branded tyre for fear of having issues with the tyres. I went for Toyo Proxy ST2 and they were not that much dearer at all and in a 295/45/20 size

Quite a lot wider from the stock 265s.
No adjustments just remember to get slim lug nuts

Thanks for the heads up. Just to clarify did you run 295/45/22? And the clearance was good for the front? I definitely am looking to get that aggressive wide look with the tires about half an inch out the side. 295 sounds about right for the look I want.

And are you located in Florida because I would be willing to take the replicas off your hand for a good deal.

Nope with the 22's i run i have a staggered tre with 265's up front. I dont think 295s will be an issue but havent tried myself.

I think you are mixing up the sizes 295/45/20 is correct but 295/4/22 would be way too tall to match the stock sizes. I have mine lowered as well so weary about sizing.
I have a lot of camber from the lowering so the rears actually look like they could do with a bit more poke, i will see how it wears as the dealer didnt give me a printout of the alignment specs.

Im about 10000kms away from florida give or take a 1000 :)
I am in Auckland New Zealand. Hence why the issue with the reps were such a bother to me. I paid for sea shipping clearance etc etc.

What about 235/30ZR22?

Are these too low? Not looking for comfort.
