Tire-Wheel Fitment Reports and Summary

If you fitted tires other than the OEM size or fitted non OEM wheels, post the fitment results here and include the following information:

Tires Size; Tire Brand/model; Wheel brand/model; Wheel offset/backspace/width; Lift size or QL; Wheel Spacer; Rub/No Rub; Modifications, Spare well fit. Add any install notes and advice. A photo if you have one. If you are fitting non OEM wheels, mention if you have HD or STD brakes. Also mention if you've driven in mild or challenging off road conditions.

We will update the fitment summary tables below as reports come in.

All other posts will be deleted but feel free to discuss and ask questions in other tire/wheel threads. Ask questions here too, but every once in awhile we'll go through and clean up the thread, so don't be upset that your post gets removed.

In general tires less than 32.1 inch can be made to fit without modification. Common "easy" mods to fit larger tires are folding over the pinch weld (see the modification sticky thread for instructions), removing the front fender air dam, trimming the felt fender liner and screwing it down tight, and using wheel spacers. Adding a lift or leveling kit is more difficult.

OEM wheels have a 56mm offset. A nice tire/wheel size comparison tool is here: http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp Many reports do not mention HD or STD brakes, so beware of using 17s with HD brakes.

The dark gray boxes in the table below highlight Stock sizes. Note that the dimensions in this table are tire standards, there is wide variety between brands and models, so always check the manufacture's spec sheet. For example; 275/65R18's on OEM rims seems to often fit without any mods, but others report rubbing. Not all 275/65R18s are the same size, Nittos have a tendency to run small and fit well where other brands run larger and rub.

Michelin ltx ms2. 275/55R20 on 20" gloss black Overland wheels (same dimensions as stock 20's). 1.25" Bora spacers. Had an occasional rub on dips at high speed and off road. No rubbing at all with the RRO Leveling Kit, with or without spacers.

LT275/65r18 duratrac on JK Sahara 18 inch rims with no problems on my 2011 Overland

These rims are a great option because they are nearly given away by JK owners.
First picture is normal ride hight and second is OR2

I also was going to power coat them black but linking the colour now... Here is a shot of the tire front the front and rear on a cold morning.. You can see the tires don't really stick out at all.

I do get a little rub when in park mode and fully turn the wheel it makes slight slight contact with the inner fenders. Noticed it while backing up the trailer last night.

I'm running 20x9 Fuel Maverick wheels with + 20mm offset. Tires are 275/55/20 Nitto Terra Grapplers, about 32" diameter. No rubbing unless in park mode with the steering wheel cranked all the way to one side. It will go lock to lock in standard height mode without rubbing, which leads me to believe the set up will work on non-air suspension models. Road noise is slightly higher than stock, but it's a barely noticeable difference. The noise is reduced on some road surfaces. I've noticed a loss of about 2-3 mpg according to the EVIC, but that was also at the same time I reinstalled the roof rack. Mileage may go up after I remove the basket, we'll see. I'm not too worried about it.

Now that rig looks great. I am glad to see a good report back on the wheel and tire combos. I was thinking about selling our diesel but with that looking like it does it seems to be off road capable. The roof rack is a nice touch. Looks great

I put the Eibach All Terrain Lift on my 2013 WK2 Laredo (2" in front, 1/2" in the rear), got some new wheels 17" x 8.5" 5-127.00 (1/2" wider and slight offset from stock wheels), and wanted to go up one size from the stock tire (from 245/70-17 to 255/70-17), but the larger tires were very close to the wheel well and would have rubbed when the suspension compressed, so I stuck with the stock tire size.

How has your ride and MPG been affected? I want to switch from the fortera tires to something with some more meat. Ours is not trail rated but would still like the look and not to mention we go down some dirt roads all the time. Muddy and winter weather. We aren't rock crawling but it's no pavement princess either.

Do you have a lift kit or this pic is just with the AT tires?

Just buying a Grand with 4x4 and 5.7 hemi and wanting a tougher looking stance than the factory tires. It has 20" wheels.

I'm coming from an H3 Hummer with 33" tires on 20" wheels and the Jeep just doesn't look rugged enough to me.
