2009 Jeep Patriot w/ 20" KMC Rockstars

Only 4 months after I ordered them...

Sized 20x8.5 w/ +10mm offset and 5.14" backspacing. Tires are 245/50/20.....speedometer is off by approximately 4mph.

Only rubs at close to full lock and with 5 people in it. I'll be adding the lift kit and heat gunning the fender liner to fix that.

Enjoy:






















Thanks in advance for your tolerance of my insolence

That looks SICK i love the look of the rockstar wheels. Now all you need is some tint to bring out the black wheels and your set.

Thanks for the comments guys...

This weekend's project will be installation of the AEM Cold Air Intake I've had sitting in the garage for a couple of months. What can I say...I hate working on my cars in the "winter"!

Tint is on the short list of mods to do next, along with a subwoofer (already have a Double Din Headunit), and flowmaster exhaust.

Tire model is Pirelli Scorpion STR....very nice tire. The ride is night and day better than the stock steelies.

I've been getting some grief that now my jeepster looks like a Cowboy fan's car.. Hhahahaa...I'm a Giants fan!

Thanks in advance for your tolerance of my insolence

Looks good! Is the backorder on those wheels typically that much or did you just happen to use a bum dealer?

I used a reputable dealer...4wheelparts.com. There seemed to be a national backorder on these wheels for some time. Tried calling a few different places (even ebay sellers) and they all said the same ..one to two month wait. Turned out to be longer, of course.

Interesting coincidence: I had decided to cancel the order for these wheels last week and proceeded to call in order to do so. Customer Service rep looked up my order to find they had just come into inventory... got my wheels 2 days later! Go figure?!

Thanks in advance for your tolerance of my insolence

I've been thinking about blacking them out as well....we'll see, I guess.

Cost $1,100 plus $400 for tires. Not bad for the money :-)
