Max Tire size for stock KK liberty Jet

Just signed up to this forum today and this is my first post.



Was looking to see if anyone knew the max tire size I can go for my kk liberty LE Jet. I am possible looking to use a 16" or 17" wheel. I also have been reading that the 16" wheel won't fit on the jet because or the brake and rotor size. Any help on this would be great

There's no difference in brakes or rotors. 16" wheels will fit. Max size, stock height is 245/70R16.

It helps that I have actually run this size on a Liberty before.

It was a tight fit, depending on the tread, there MAY be SOME SLIGHT rubbing on the anti sway bar.

Depending on rims will depend on how much rubbing you will get.Only some aftermarket 15" steel rims with 4" of less of backspacing will clear and that will create rubbing even with 235/75R15.
