Default A few questions

Gents,

Im in the market for a WK2 GC Laredo. An older model, 2011-2013.

Does the older model accept the Aerpro harnesses with no issues? Steering wheel controls worked out fine etc?

I want to run a CarPlay capable head unit.

I recently had one in a JK, but had some minor issues as it had the infinity sub, aside from that it all worked. Would the Laredo suffer from similar issues?

Are many still running an AT 265/60/18 tyre? Everyone seems to go the size up, but I dont want to have issues with the spare in the standard place.

Appreciated.

Can't help with the sound system question, but re. tyres: without knowing what type of driving you'll be doing, stick with the 18's. No good reason to fork out for 20's which have lower profile tyres resulting in a slightly harder/noisier ride.

I think what he means is going up to a 65 profile instead of a 60 profile - 265/65R18.

I've stayed with the standard size tyre on both my GC's. I just can't see a good reason to change it.

Cheers

Sorry, misunderstood! (some owners do increase rim size)

FWIW I run Pirelli 65's.

same here, just fitted Cooper Discoverer SRX 265/6018's @ 66K replacing the OEM Michelins
Very happy with quietness and ride/handling of new tyres.

Must've been having a bad day with my previous posts, my Pirelli's are actually 265/60R18, not 65. Apologies for the confusion everyone. Stock size seems to be the consensus so far.
