We are about to move to Massachusetts (apparently they get snow there!) from Sydney, Australia. As you can tell, we are out of our minds, so consequently we have ordered a Grand Cherokee Overland Sumitt with the off-road and Hemi options. Will worry about a house later.
I have emailed AEV but had no response but would love to know if their 17 inch Pintler wheel will fit the WK2?
If so, I would like to run one of the following:
Cooper Zeon LTZ LT265/70 R17 31.6 in
Cooper Zeon LTZ LT285/70 R17 32.7 in (probably too tall)
BF Goodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO 275/70 R17 32.2 in (probably too tall)
BF Goodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO 265/70R17 31.6 in
BF Goodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO 275/65R17 31.1 in
IMHO you should consider 2 sets of wheels unless you plan on doing a lot of offroad (not sure there's too much of that around Boston) one with summer or all season tires and on with a dedicated winter tire. None of those listed will come close to the performance of a dedicated winter tire such as a Blixzak. http://www.bridgestone.com/products/...zak/index.html
Yeah, thanks for that - that's pretty much what I will be doing, although from what I have read, some of the better AT type tires are pretty good in the snow as well - BTW moving to Cape Cod not Boston.
Not sure physically how much bigger they are. But the Overland adn Summit have whats stated as "HD Brakes" which I assume is Heavy Duty Brakes. I had a brake profile done for a wheel company that I was looking at. They sent it off to their engineer to see if he could remove enough material to clear the brakes, but had no success.
