I have a 96 Cherokee sport. I won't be doing any offroading. I was thinking of BFG all terrain.


Thanks!

Yes ,

Your welcome.

A little hint your factory tires are not much smaller than a set of thirties.

I bet your gonna rub though. Some minor trimming may be needed to aviod rubbing when turning and flexing. A 225X75 tire is a little over 28". A 235X75 is about 29"

What kind of tires did you buy that are 2 inches off from advertised size? Most companies are a few tenths of an inch away, but I've never seen one more than an inch off How wide are those tires that you have them on a 10" rim?

My previous tires were Firestone Wilderness AT's... 30" tire mounted on a 15x7" rim, mounted on the Jeep stood only 28.5" tall.


They were not worn down, either.
