Re: 17 inch Rims For 2011 Hemi Overland?

Picture of this set-up? So many variables that are rare, Hemi with 17 inch wheels that should not fit, and Laredo X with 17 inch wheels. I didnt know they could make the HEMI without the HD brake set up….. Please post pics!

Re: 17 inch Rims For 2011 Hemi Overland?

Hopefully these pictures will help prove me a truth teller. WK2 Jeep website for 2012 Laredo --18" Off-Road Tire & Wheel Delete (requires Off-Road Adventure II Group, not available with 3.6L engine)--Mine is a 2011, you can tell by the color. I have Trailer tow IV with the 220 amp alt, HD cooling, wiring for trailer brakes. When looking up brake pads recently at Auto Zone site they were the same. Maybe I missed something. They did list different rotors however. The SRT8 has much larger brakes and makes ours look wimpy. Not an expert on the brake issue, can only show you what I have as far as wheels. I do find this interesting because when stopping hard on wet bumpy or slick surfaces I get a "hop" from the ABS that I find uncomfortable. One picture at Oregon coast. Our stomping ground for fun. The other shows 17"wheel with Goodyear tires (white letters out) and the left pipe showing it is a Hemi and the Laredo symbol. Yes I paid a lot for the Laredo set up this way (42,000 sticker, paid 39,000), sinking to peer pressure I didn't want to be accused of getting the soccer mom model. Just joking. Laredo's are lighter than Limited or Overlands and the X package makes them almost as nice. Laredo's don't have the daytime running lights either. I don't need a memory seat as I am the only driver and I can shut my own hatch.

Wow! Ok! You definitely proved your point. You have one strange rig! I don't even know where to start.............. It's definitely cool but wow it's kind of a mutt. How you got the Hemi without HD brakes is the strangest part.

Nice rig!

Re: 17 inch Rims For 2011 Hemi Overland?

I have pretty much the same setup except I have the 18" wheels. And NO HD brakes.

Re: 17 inch Rims For 2011 Hemi Overland?

Yeah we recently discovered in the fine print that V8 laredos don't have HD brakes. Only the limited and overland V8s. A V8 with SD brakes may be rare, just as rare as a Laredo V8, but not unheard of.

The brake pads seem to be identical regardless.

Re: 17 inch Rims For 2011 Hemi Overland?

Thanks. Good to know. Always learning. I searched hard for my setup and thought there was a mistake from the factory when I saw the 17's, until I saw the invoice that said "18 inch wheel delete".
