Will 20" Altitude wheels fit the srt8?

Will the 20" black grand cherokee Altitude wheels fit the 2012 gc srt8?

I'm not sure, think they are 20x8

I have a extra set, thinking i'd use them for a snow set. What tires if so like 265/50/r20's? Prefer a high sidewall for winter use.

^^ This. But I doubt they'll work.

Can you find the wheel markings on the inside of the wheel that tell the size and offset?

Urbantank, I'm running 20x8 for winters, my clearance is pretty good on the clippers. But if people are looking for solutions, the only way is to really test fit it before tossing the tires on.

I found a set that were 220$ per wheel, which I would rather curb then the stock wheels which are over 1000$ each, so worth the time to test fit in my opinion.

Thanks loud8, where did you find your wheels? I really like the route you went with a narrower width.

Just a local wheel and tire shop, nowhere special. If you get somewhat younger guys, they are more willing to try ideas out then some of the old guys who just push for factory sizes I find.

I'm pleased with the narrower size other then I brake loose on acceleration from a stop now because my tires are 3 sizes narrower and have a smaller contact patch. I also figure there's a lot of weight savings going so much narrower.

But I'm happy because the winter tires have a nice wade bead on them to prevent curbing and such, so it's more piece of mind.

I threw the cheapest wheels I could find onto it and they were boss Motorsport wheels in black, and they don't look bad at all. They just need to get me through 3-4 months. May be looking for nicer after markets for summer also, I can't stand excess rotating mass on vehicles, and oem wheels are made stronger to take the run flat tires which are also heavier and ride like crap in my opinion. Only time will tell as I don't mind the stock wheels.
