tires and rims

I'm new to this forum here.. well i got a 96 jeep grand cherokee with a 3 inch lift on it last week I'm wondering if full size dodge rims will fit on it and if i can get 285/75/r16 under it with little to no trimming

Measure from the center of the wheel to the edge of the fender. Stock non upcountry measurement should be 18 inches. If you had upcountry, stock measurement is 19 inches.

EDIT: speedbucket beat me to it lol

Stock its like 18inches to the fender and center of the wheel. You should be at 21in or so with the jeep sitting on the ground.

no, and if the springs have been replaced then the Upcountry package mentioned above doesn't matter either
