Having seen all three size wheel options for 2014 I think the 18"ers look like they are the correct size for the JGC. The twentys scream "wanna be escalade" and look too oversized for the jeep.

Love my 20's on my 2012.. They greatly improve the look over the 18"s in my opinion..

Agreed...the 20's are way over the top but at home, in the hood.

everyone has a different preference, and if that comment about "the hood" was to say 20s dont look truck like, thats absurd. they arent 26s or 24s or even 22s... smh

Definitely disagree with this thread. Only thing I can figure is you are old school guys where 14 and 15 inch wheels were the norm lol. Now some cars have 14" brakes!!! To say the Overland 20" wheels are ghetto is just ridiculous. They are NOTHING like what you guys are describing them to be something like 26" wheels on a old caprice classic. Yeah those are ridiculous, but the Overland 20" wheels are amazing looking and fits the size of the Jeep perfectly.
The other thing is you do realize besides the finish they are essentially the same 20" wheel that was offered from the start of the WK2 back in 2010-2011. So why the post specifically towards the 2014?
Since you took a stab at the 20" wheels, I'm gonna go ahead and say that because you opted for the small 18" wheels and balloon tires, you just drastically downgraded the looks of your Overland. When I see any WK2 going down the street with the small wheels it just makes it look like a base model.

Yeah this wheel is sooooooo over the top! A very nice and clean 5 spoke 20" wheel on a large SUV. I question anyone's taste who thinks these wheels are "ghetto" durrrrrr

Are those chrome-capped power folding mirrors too!?! Freaking Escalade wannabe :D

Add me to the "ghetto" camp that would pick the 20s over the 18s every time.

I think the 20's are the only good looking wheel on the GC. The 18's really class it down in my opinion. Especially the ones they chose.

20s are the new norm for trucks and large suvs hell even some can come with 22s. 18s look way too small on the WK2

20's in my opinion are a good size and fit the arches better than 18's, although if your not taking it off road then 22's are acceptable, which is good seeing as I pick some up tomorrow. I guess its all down to personal taste.

All extremely subjective. To each his own. You have to get what you like yourself, not what someone else tells you is cool. Personally, I ordered the ORA II mostly for the 18" wheels, it's what I like. But, of course I respect everyone's right to like what they want. At the Cleveland Car Show, looking at the 20's next to the 18's, I did think the 20's looked like a higher grade, more upscale wheel. It's just that all by themselves, I prefer the 18's.

You'll like the 20's until you look for new tires: fewer choices, expensive and difficult to balance compared to 18's. Signed, Mr. Practical Oldschool.

Loved my 20s so much I bought a second set of 20s...and you'd be surprised at how many tire options are available for the 20s...not that uncommon of a size these days.

The WK2 looks better with 18's that's why I got 20's. :D

There actually are plenty of tire choices for the 20" wheels. The smaller wheels might get more choices, but most of them are craptastic tires anyway.

Love my stock 20's. wouldn't have bought it if they only came with 18's. everyone will have opinions, thats why they offer choices. But I don't think 20's on the grand cherokee make it look ghetto - I think they complement and fit the vehicle perfectly. If you don't like em, don't buy em.

Are the 20's on the 2014 the exact wheel on the 11-13 models just darker? They look the same in the picture but you never can tell exactly without seeing them in person. Mine look like that when I haven't cleaned them in awhile. Otherwise mine look the same just a bit brigher.
