There is a guy across the street from me with a full size Ram, and he has the exact wheels I am inquiring about, so I may just ask him to borrow one and test fit. If he says yes, I will post so,e pics if anyone is interested.
Different bolt pattern unless he has adapters, but that truck could have the 275/60/20 tire.

But seriously, depending on where you are, there are a butt-ton of Jeepers that don't like 20's, call us traditionalists or whatever so you're lowering your value if you want to think of it that way.

But like it's been said DO WHAT YOU WANT! Some of them look aight with 37's and a 6" lift.

Jaker jk Now I will say this , I will not run 20's with less then 37's

37 on 20's works out to a in between 33's on 17's and 35's on 17's

now what I find funny is the guys who bashed 20's because of sidewall but won't bash 33's on 17's

Ok ok. I wasn't really accounting for 40s and up! That kinda moots alot of my points!

For anyone else, run 20s if you want, as stated it is YOUR jeep. Hell, my jeep is gecko which draws as much ire sometimes. Yesterday one of the guys at my tire shop asked me if my wife picked out the color! Well, she did... but I like it.

I would've put 20's on my wrangler but, unfortunately, I fear ridicule. It sucks. If you're the kind of person who doesn't give a crap about others then definately do the 20's like you want to.

Sorry but I have nothing to add in terms of SRT fitment.
Are you serious?? WHY IN THE HELL would Jeep get rid of removable doors? I suppose you don't want an option for a soft top either... I read this comment and actually laughed out loud!

And you let someone else decide what you size wheels you put on your rig because you fear ridicule? That's funny!!

if you add 3 more inches to the wheels....add 3 more inches to the tires !
makes sense to me.....

That's probably one of the most ridiculous statements I've ever seen on this forum. Need to go get yourself a FJ or a Merc G-Wagon...

deepbluerubi I gained 6.5 lbs per wheel/tire combo with my setup over the stock rubi rim with m/t s. I keep both sets, but on the street the M/T's sucked for me. I like the way it handles with the 20" a/t's, corners well stops fine. works great in rain, snow and very quiet. I like the fact that the wheels maybe could have come from the factory on my jeep since they came out of the mopar parts bin. Peace.

not that i'm about to put 20s on my ...but i would think twice before schooling people on the whole "20s add mass" thing....
I'd bet that a 35x12.5x20 on an aluminum wheel weighs just about the same as a 35x12.5x17 on a steel wheel.
i think there is more to say about guys who put supper chunky MT tires with an "E" rating on their jeep cuz it looks "bitchin"

Don't hate man.... your Jeep is yours, and his Jeep is His.
04-24-2013 12:48 PM
Bamyrick226 I also may be in the minority here but I have 20's and 35 inch tires. Love it! Bout to get a 3 inch lift also. I get nothin but complements on it. I personally think it looks better then huge tires and little bitty rims. But hey you know what? A wrangler isn't about traditionalists, it isn't about change and making them more modern. It's about getting a vehicle we each love and doing what ever we want to with it. No matter what what anyone thinks. Build the rig you like and have fun with it. If they all looked the same with similar mods it would be a wrangler it would be a hummer. I'm done now and have a nice day.

in case you haven't noticed EVERY OTHER VEHICLE ON THE ROAD has already gone in this direction.... the fact that the Wrangler hasn't is EXACTLY what makes it a 'JEEP"


I would've put 20's on my wrangler but, unfortunately, I fear ridicule. It sucks. If you're the kind of person who doesn't give a crap about others then definately do the 20's like you want to.

MAN UP Son ! you want 20s..Do it. "i fear ridicule"..seriously? if ain't gonna kill ya, land ya in jail, or steal all your money...don't sweat it.
I spent $850 on tires that were EXACTLY the same diameter as stock...did i think guys would say "go 33"..."go 35"....sure, but it's not what i wanted... i wanted something a little wider, a little more chunky..and thats what i did...

Why overhaul the Wrangler when Jeep already has a vehicle for you. Modern everything, including platform and aerodynamics.

04-24-2013 09:42 AM
iNtErNeT_rYaN Agreed, I've seen them not fit a Sport. The pics on my blackberry so we all know it's a worthless picture for me to post.
*Updated
OK I added the pic, It wasn't that bad. Yes that's an X with 1 Rubicon and 1 SRT8 wheel

I must have REALLY messed mine up then, man it won't flex at all with these 20's


Someone please save me from myself.

OP You will be fine, there are several 20" options available. These guys are right, the factory 20" wheels from a WK1 have incorrect backspacing and rub. I've seen it in person, it's only a matter of milimeters. The backspacing, distance from back of rim to mounting surface, is farther outset on a WK wheel. JK wheels fit on WK's but not vise versus.

Non-removable doors on a Wrangler? That's not a Wrangler...that's the new Cherokee you speak of.

lee indy 20s on a jeep looking awful. call me a traditionalist? ive had every type of jeep and taken them all off road and i love my jk because it is hands down the best jeep ive ever run.

and form follows function. if you want better off road capability you want more side wall. 35s you only get 7 in of side wall. thats not enough. general rule of thumb is you want equal amounts of side wall and rim or more side wall than rim. I run 15s because i get stupid amounts of traction at low psi. if you want 20s you need 40s or your hurting your off road capability. i have several people in my club that bought there jeeps with 20s from the dealer. a couple off road trips and they sell them. and buy smaller rims and bigger tires. every one has reported an increase in acceleration and MPG. one similiar rig to mine gets 14mpg highway. i get 18-20 highway. he has 20s. metal will always weigh more than rubber. and the weight of the rim being closer to center line also helps keep rotational mass down. which in turn helps with acceleration.

20s belong on mall crawlers. if you like appearance over function and your jeep is just for show by all means get what you think looks good. make sure you never get into rocks. those pretty rims will get scared up quick. hell my 15s get hit every trip.

but hey dont listen to my logic im just a guy who never wheels his jeep and has no experience with tires

Again though, the OP was asking about the SRT (Street Racing Team) wheels, what part about the pics of your rig was helpful besides for your own self indulgent purposes? Are you a "bully" in real life or just on the internet? So if someone asks about an AEV full width bumper and I explain why I wouldn't run one are you going to jump in the thread and show a bunch of pics of your full width bumper and then jump on me? Why don't you chill out and let the thread do its thing instead of trying to decide who can post and what opinion they have?
The pictures are just for you and I know what the SRT wheels are ( was looking at them before I got the ones I have now didn't like the BS on those) and I am a bully in real life and I think AEV is a bunch of over priced stuff
