Hi Guys,

Need your advice on this, im in a process of resttoring the jeep to its origanal glory and had a lot of head ache doing it, with my recent purchase of second hand 17' rims goes a 235 x 50 tires, second hand. I want 18 with 55 and 235 as what I saw from the guy in youtube, however the crazy tire guys gave me a 17 and will changed it when the 18 comes, 3 months of going back they wouldnt put a good 18 on it and asking for additional money which was not agreed even,

Now, im just thingking of putting in 60 or 65x 235, which is best I dont need all terrain because i dont do 4x4 its used as a daily driver with friends and dogs, we lived in abu dhabi and the roads here are as flat as the race track
i used to have BMW but need to get a bigger one with the dogs, but all i can afford is a 98 cherokee, with lots of mechanical to repair, although surviving.

will a 60 do good or 65, its all stock, no lifts and no plans.

I'd go with the 60's - there will be more choices in that size, and you'll have less rotating mass
