stock 2012 KK tire sizes

How much trimming would have to be done to fit some 265/70r16? And how bad would that throw off speedometer and other instruments

Would it be worth while to go up any in size? for the minimal ground clearance boost? or just stick with stock.

If you're not lifted a 235/75/16 or 245/70/16 should work.

The 235/75 will be a little taller and and wider than 225/75/16, the 245/70 will be 20mm wider but about the same diameter as 225/75/16s.

Which would be better for mild off roading due to no lift? And do you guys have any suggestions on tires?

Last year I put on Grabber AT2's (255/70/16) that actually measure as wide as other brands 265's and they fit great-no rubbing,no problems at all-on the stock wheels they'll flex right up into the wheel wells with plenty of clearance and off-road they're a great tire-have had them in snow,mud and rock-never let me down.

hello, New to forum but wanted to chime in with a question of my own. I have the 18" chrome rims on my 2012 Liberty and wanted to get opinions about putting the BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A's on. The size I want to go with is 265/60/18. I do not have a lift as of yet so I wanted to know if I should be ok with this tire size. This size is about a 30.5" tall tire and a width of about 10.5" so about a 1" wider and a 1.5" taller tire over stock specs. Thanks in advance for any input.

Without a lift , .....No
It may fit but try driving it and there will be issues with turning etc Need 2.5 - 3inches of lift to run that size

Just put those on my '08 in the 245/70/16 and love them. This is my third set (first on the KK) and think they're one of the best bang for the buck tires out there. Aggressive looking too.

I have 265's on mine wiht the 4 inch jba lift and they required trimming. At stock, there would be no way unless you stopped doing anything but going straight. I like the 265, but a lift is needed. You also need to trim up the plastic wells a bit in the front. Also, just another note on 265's. The BLD hates turning with them on. It kicks in more frequently. That could be a situation coupled with the lift but something to consider. Dealer said they couldn't set the comp any high than 245's. So speedo is off a bit too.
