Re: Off Road 18"s

Fab report. BFG what? Pictures or details of where the contact occurs?

I'm going to guess it's the very corner of the shoulder, and very minor, as nearly all other 275/65R18 fit but are close at...

It'd be hard going to lose two litres of oil externally and not realise prior to pulling the dipstick... the mess would be unbelievable.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Much more likely to be between the pad and rotor with 18"s SJandL. Would need to be a bloody big rock otherwise!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

It's not going to lower the oil level if that's what you mean Bretto. It really depends on whether the mess is driving you mad, or offends your environmental sensibilities.
