Tire Size

Hey Jeep Fam,

So my girlfriend just bought a 04 Liberty and I was wondering if my old tires from my GC would fit on her truck. My tire size are 245/70/16 and I wanted to make sure there wouldn't need to be any trimming.

If the suspension is still good then the 245-70-16s are OK
Ran them for a while when mine was brand new in 04, only issue was small rub backing up
NOW for the bad news, more than likely the suspension has sagged an inch or so , so they will rub some no matter what. Trimming will not help much really unless you are a hacker like some
Just picked up another Liberty and with only 81,000 miles its sagged an inch

04 KJ 4.5 JBA lift, 03 KJ 2.5 JBA coilovers,

Thanks man! I'm gonna have to test it out than. This Liberty looks like brand new, owner was a elderly lady so maybe it's all good condition.

Read the response right above your last post , I stated it was 19 inches after April 12, 2002
Numbers for what? OME, Ironman , what lift do you want to go with
More information is needed

04 KJ 4.5 JBA lift, 03 KJ 2.5 JBA coilovers,
