whats up everyone, new to the board and new to jeeps so i figured you guys would be the ones to ask... I have an 08 sahara and wanted to change out the rims on the to all black rims, would like to use the stock tires if possible but if not no big deal.... the stock tire and rim size is p255/70/18 stones...
would like to keep it at the stock height right now..
hey guys appreciate the info... i called up a couple places and they said the 18 x 8 is nearly impossible to find and they said they do not recommend putting the stock 255/70/18 on a rim that is 18 x 9 or 18 x 9.5 ........they recommend 18 x 7 or 8.....
what do u guys think they just trying to sell me some tires... exatly what is the second number refer to? thanks guys
All of the 08's have TPMS. (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) Verify and make 100% sure that your stock sensors will go into the new wheel. They require a different size hole and some wheels dont offer this just yet. You will have to use the stock sensors from your stock wheels OR purchase new ones from the dealer and have them calibrated to the vehicle. Just something to keep an eye on.

i didn't know that the sensors were on the wheel! where are they exact? will i be able to put them on new rims, if i leave them out i guess i will always have the system giving me a problem right? Wait does that mean there is a sensor in the spare tire to?
thanks pimp.... is it possible to take out the tmps and put them into another wheel? if it is part of the stem i dont see why not but just curious do i just put the wheels on and reset the tire monitor system????
