Search for rolexjake on this forum, he has this isze on some kmc addicts on a non QL with no issues. On stock wheels I am not sure, I think have seen one post on that combo working.

I'm giving up about 0.4" of tire width, but in my opinion the 32" tire size looks great on the WK2. I have no issues with clearance (have QL. checked on all settings). I don't think I'd have issues with a 275/65/18 either (don't quote me on that though....)
Have you tried the 275/65/18s yet? I have a set of these wheels and am thinking of trying the bigger tires.

Winter wheels & Tires

Hello all. First post for me. Looks like a great forum.
Just picked up a 2012 Grand Cherokee Limited in BC. As I travel through mountain passes on a regular basis and need 4 wheel drive to get up my 750 meter driveway for four months of the year, I would like to get a set of winter wheels and tires to replace the stock Michelin Latitude Tour. I'm finding that aftermarket wheels are hard to come by due to the new bolt patern/size and offset. Any suggestions? Has anyone had experience with the Latitude Tour in winter condidtions? Thanks in advance.
David

I drove in a 8" snowstorm here in Denver with the Latitude Tours and they worked just fine, but I wasn't going up any extreme grades on hills. The snow mode really helps it seems. You might want to give them a shot and if they aren't cutting it, then change them out.

Tire rack, you put your vehicle in and it picks the wheels and tires that fit.

I see several sets of the 18" Laredo X painted version of the Limited Wheels on e-Bay and our local Craigslist. That is the direction I would go personally, and keep it looking nice and stock even in the winter. The factory wheels will hold up to salt and road chemicals better than any steel or aftermarket alloys, in my opinion. I would also spring for adding TPMS sensors if you are going to have a winter set and a summer set of wheels & tires. Otherwise, you will have to look at a TPMS error code on the EVIC all winter long. For tires, I always find the best prices at Discount Tire for all brands.

My Latitudes are working fine for Minnesota/Wisconsin ice and snow for me. Not planning to get a 2nd set for winter and not planning on off-roading. But your needs seem quite a bit more extreme. Best luck.

I travel mountain passes regularly, through long winters with heavy snow. Bridgestone Blizzaks have been terrific for me, have had 'em on two Subarus and a previous Jeep. I get them from Tire Rack, shipped to my door. For the Grand Cherokee, I ordered the package, of tires, wheels, and TPMS sensors all mounted and balanced, just had to put them on.

I would bet that any of the major brands' "studless" winter tires would be good. I'll keep the OEM Latitudes on the factory wheels for summer use.

The bolt pattern is the same as the previous WK's, it's just the width and offset you may have to consider. Has anyone tested the fitment of the 18" Wrangler wheels on the WK2's? Those would look pretty sharp for winter wheels and even have the JEEP center cap.

I ordered a set of rims and winter tires from TireRack, didnt have any issues. When they were delivered, all i had to do was unwrap and bolt them on.

Cool Tire Size

Hello everyone.

I have a Bright Silver 4x4 Laredo with ORC1, Security and Conv group, and the laredo e group (So no QL for me!)

. I have 17x8 wheels and really like the looks of the stock wheels. I was looking into going from the 245 75 16's which is 29.50 in to 265 75 on the same stock wheels. The tire i'm looking at is the Treadwright Guard Dogs which is 32.2 in tires. Does anyone know if these would rub? Or should I try and go to the 245 75 16's.

I don't really want to put spacers or a lift on at this point, just looking for a beefier tire that I can use with the stock 17x8 wheels.

I'm confused. You keep referencing tires that are for a 16 inch wheel but you say you have a 17 inch wheel.

I just put the 275/55/20 on my Laredo with the stock 20in wheels. I decided on the Pirelli Scorpion ATR with no rubbing issues and no change in power on my V6.

Was a typo. I meant 17 not 16's.

Actually. I did make a mistake for some reason I was looking at tires for a 16'' wheel. (I just traded up from an 06 trailblazer which had 16'' wheels). The tires i'm looking at are Treadwright Guard dog 265 70 17 load range E. They run $125 each before shipping and have a nice all terrain tread. The outer diameter according to their website is 32.25''. I have seen alot of really good reviews for these tires so the fact that they are retreads doesn't bother me.

Question 285/60/18 -- Cooper Zeon LTZ or Terra Grapplers?

Webspoke is running 285/60/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers with apparently no rubbing in the various QL settings..... Is anyone running 285/60/18 Cooper Zeon LTZ?

How can I choose a rim that in combination with the Zeon LTZ will fit the K2 without rubs?


Sr. Webspoke, Do you have any rubbing on the trail or at highway mode with your 285/65/18s?
