Spedo Reconfigure

Hello New jeep owner here. Have stock 265/60R18 and was considering stepping up to 265/65r18 for the availability of a Goodyear Trippletred. I was wondering if anyone has re calibrated their spedo without purchasing aftermarket equiptment? I know its roughly a 2mph error at 60, but its a new car for me and i'm anal.

Only a dealer has the star scan system that can change the tire factor, if that is even an option on the WK2.

Hey everyone long time lurker first time poster. Got new shoes for the GC 4WD QuadraTrac II with BFG Rugged Terrain 265/70/R17's on stock wheels (stock tires were 245/70/R17). They fit fine with no lift no rub. Drove with full travel and no issues.

Awesome! I have the same but in 33" haven't seen anyone else on here with em yet, they are actually quiet compared to other all terrains like BFG Baja champs

it would be sweet if I could get a set of these on my Summit. I need these tires (or similar) on an 18" rim for special times

18" XD Addicts, +18 offset, machined. BFG All-Terrain 275/65/18. No spacers. 2.5" RRO lift kit. Slight rubbing on front tires when wheel turned to the max, nothing to worry about really.

Can anyone tell.me before I pull the trigger very soon if I will have a problem. I ha e the level kit. I'm getting 17x8.5 tko's with 18 offset. This will put it put to the fenders. I want to get 265/70/17 instead of 265/65/17. Will that extra half inch between tire and fender cause me any potential problems with the fender if I hit a big bump or go off-road. . May be a dumb question bit I'm worried about that.

20 inch oem wheels recommend good tires on WK2

I've not had any luck with the tires Good Years with my 2013 Grand Cherokee Limited, looking for a replacement tire's. Any one here who has 20 inch oem wheels, and has had good luck with the tires they drive daily.

My vehicle currently has vibration on the steering and front seats after 70mph. I've had dealership re-balance, I've put more air in the tires 39psi and had the wheel nuts tightened to 100lb/ft torched.

Thanks,

I have 18" wheels with +25 offset and 285/60 Nitto TG's. They fit ok on my old overland and current limited (without QL). Just a slight kiss on the front outer fender on really big bumps (at normal height) and it gets close to the felt inner liner on the front at full lock. With +18 you should be ok for normal driving, and no issues off road at the off-road ride heights. Here is my old overland at OR1 with this combo and my current non QL limited.

+18 versus +25 offset

Webspoke, Will the +18 sffset stick the wheels out further than the +25 offset you run?
