Agreed! I'm waiting to see what Rocky Road comes up with, they are working on a winch set up. There really isnt anything out there right now that I know of for the front of the WK2.

Thanks! That seals the deal- I'm getting 275/65/18s for my stock wheeled non-QL Laredo!

Hey everyone, We should come up with a sticky of tire sizes that have been installed. With the difference in tread pattern and actual outer diameter it would also be a good idea to list the tire manufacturer and model of the tire. Along with the tire size we should list if we have a lift, tire spacers, rim info (backspacing, width, and diameter).

Anyhow, I'm trying to figure out if a a 265/70/17 Guard Dog M/T will fit. Specs are 80 PSI max, 10.5'' wide, 32.25'' diameter. Rim range 7 - 8''. For $125 each they arn't a bad deal at all. Lots of reviews from the trailblazer market. Here's the website. www.treadwright.com

Thread stickied!

I thought I posted in here. I guess not.

I put Nitto Terra Grappler 265-70-17 on MB TKO 17x8.5. Both fit before lift with no rubbing at any point. However, I am unaware if the size of tires would fit with factory offset.

Before lift



After lift

18" Pro Comp 7089 with 275/65/R18 BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A's.

2011Hemi fit these without trimming. I had to trim in the rear of the front tires because of the offset/backspacing of my wheels. FYI-

vba, you should remove the two lower front fascia pieces. It simple and fast. Looks a little better, too, IMO.

I have yet to figure it out. I took mine off the day I got Alice. Didn't notice a difference in anything except that, I think, it looks a lot better. The front end appears higher. I have taken off the front fascias on all my vehicles but this one has had the biggest impact since it is lifted and whatnot. Just my opinion on it.

Anyone know the smallest wheel size you can fit? i miss my 15" rock crawlers. Im sure caliper clearance is the issue. But has anyone put a 16 or 17 on?
