I see you changed it from 275-70-16 to 275-60-16
big difference
Problem is not many make a tire in that size anymore
And with a tread like those, pretty generic so better chance of not rubbing

Actually, I went from 235/70-16 to 275/60-16 (see my first post). The only difference is the width.

These TOYOs are what I wanted from the beginning and are perfect for Florida's sandy soils and the beach. Plus our torrential downpours as well.

So if anyone else is interested, this thread provides first-hand information and experience.

Yeah, they're a 1000 times better than the hard, noisy, slippery, skinny, OEM Goodyears that came with my Renegade (Wrangler SR-A).

Jeep looks great! Scratching my chin now on what I'll do for my next set. Next thing will be suspension

When you get knee-deep in a situation, floor it.

This makes me wonder if Chrysler could have sold more Libertys if they had better tires in the first place. The Goodyears don't impress at all especially for those doing comparison shopping with other Utes.

Cost is probably the biggest reason. Jeep probably got some ridiculous deal to put them on all their vehicles. The base model Patriot came with the Goodyear Eagles and were the only tire made in that size.

yes cheapest price they can get for a tire to get them to the dealer
Thats why you replace them as soon as you buy along with the suspension

Maximizing profit at all costs... funny (or sad) how that turned out. Dwindling sales followed by Fiat replacing the Liberty with something that's more "car-like".

Well, good for them 'cause I'm happy with my Renegade.

Dwindling sales due to going to the KK design
KJs sold like gang busters

What size? Are they "wider but not taller" than the OEMs? If so then they could be a lower priced alternative to the TOYOs.

I know it's all personal preference and stuff but I honestly like the look of the KK better. Looks more like the old school Cherokee's.
