Mopar steel wheels vs aftermarket?

921 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  CraigK
I am getting steel wheels and winter tires for our 2021 Pacifica Touring L Plus AWD.

I am wondering if I should go with the Mopar steel wheels or just the generic aftermarket wheels. Are the Mopar wheels thicker (less likely to bend and/or warp)?

We are looking at getting 17" wheels because they seem to be the smallest size that will fit.

I see you're in Canada too. I don't know about the Chrysler steelies, but I tried Costco steelies the 1st time around and they rusted so badly in the 1st year that I didn't think they'd be structurally sound. What a waste of $!

I went with Alloys from pmctires.com for my winter tires 3 years ago and they've been great. They weren't that much more than than the steel option and the service from PMC was excellent. They just look so much better than the steelies. I got my snow tires at Costco. I run 17's but I do have the PHEV which apparently has smaller brakes?

When my OEM summer tires wore out, I switched to 17's with a set of take-offs from a 2021 Pacifica non-PHEV because I'm not fond the look of the 18's that I had to get at the time to get the sunroof.

Last but not least, check out slightly larger, narrower tires for improved clearance and bite in the snow.

Tried to PM you but I assume you're too new to PM? Anyway, if you're anywhere near London, ON, I've got some OEM 18" rims that would make excellent snow rims if you needed 18", which it sounds like you do with your larger AWD brakes. PM me when you have enough posts to qualify. They'll be going on Kijiji shortly.
