I was leaning to the Coopers, so I haven't looked into reviews of the Duellers. I want a tire good for all weather, and for ****ty logging roads and minor stream crossings.

They are not OEM. Couldn't find any around for a price I was willing to pay. These are new replica wheels by ART. I know OEM is supposed to be the best, but I'm not going to be crashing into boulders, so these will do just fine.

Same here. I was just curious on the brand and size though. The set I'm looking at is OE Creations which may very be under same unmbrella as ART. The offset on those is 31mm. What about yours and what tire size are you going for?

Yes, the offset is 31mm, which will work, as I test fitted for clearance front and back (see my previous post). might need a 5mm spacer for the back, but I don't think so.

Tire size I am using is 235 60 17 since this will keep the same diameter as the old tires but still be an inch wider.

Gotcha. I'm trying to decide between 17" or 18". Same tire size in Cooper A/T tires or Yokohama A/T 225/55/18. I thought the 5mm spacer you referred to was only necessary for the cherokee wheel due to higher offset?

For the rear, the rim is already damn close to the rear shock. The Cherokee rim is slightly closer, so I thought maybe a spacer, but should be fine. The OEM rims and my replica rims are both 7.5 inches wide and 31mm offset.

Once you get everything put together, please post pics with the specs. I started a thread in the 2nd Gen section hoping to make it an official wheel & tire topic. That way people with questions can go there and see what other people have found successful and what mods they may have had to do (spacers, lift, trimming, etc). Hopefully I can post mine there soon.

This is my wife's car, why am I customizing it? She won't even appreciate it.......

I've been considering these as well. 17x8 with a 40mm offset. Unfortunately, most of the online wheel configurators don't have the new compass body style and colors to preview it.

Might be coming into a set of new takeoff 17" black cherokee wheels at a good price. My wife will be just fine with black wheels so i might as well save the money and remember it's not my car. I still plan on switching to a set of AT tires for a more aggressive look but that will happen in time. Tires are 225/60/17 so they should bolt right on and be fine. Right?

Bought these rims from Discount Tire Direct on a close out sale. 17" 7"wide with a offset of 40 The stock 215/65/17 tires are mounted on these for now.
My plan is to use these rims for snow tires next winter. And I am going to be mounting 225/65/17 Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus on my stock Trailhawk rims this next summer.
I presently have 215/65/17 Firestone Winterforce II mounted on my factory Trailhawk rims.

Looks good. Put the pic and specs in the "official" wheel & tire thread for others to reference

Well, getting my tires on Friday. Need to take the TPMS sensors out of my current rims and install into the new ones. I got Copper Discoverer AT3 4s tires.

I just picked these up yesterday. Tires are still practically new but i want to put some A/T tires on it. I'm anxious to see what yours will look like before i pull the trigger.

Decided on these.....225/60/17

Reviews seem to be very good. Especially wet traction and road noise which will be very important to my wife. $100 rebate from tire rack and free shipping don't hurt either!

Looks great jim010. I bet it rides and handles a bit better now.

Does the compass have lug bolts or lug nuts? I went to change the wheels and realized i have wheel locks to which i don't have a key! I have to call the dealership tomorrow but I've been looking online and found Mopar wheels locks that appear to be lug bolts. I don't have the spare tire and i looked all throughout the car for the key. Is this standard or is it something the dealer put on?

Lug Bolts, Wheel locks would have been a dealer add on.
