Question Tire Size???

I'm going to get new tires b4 winter and was just going to keep it stock for now. Would 245/75r/16 fit on my stock rims. I'm pretty sure they will but just want to make sure. Also that should work just fine with the stock spare too right? My Jeep is a 2000 Grand Cherokee Laredo WJ 4x4 with Selec-Trac transfer case and 4.0L engine with factory tow package. And I know your just going to say go out and look but my Jeep has 245/70r/16 on it now.

Yes they will fit on the 16x7in. factory rims. What size is your spare? On my WJ I have a brand new 245/70R16 Goodyear SR-A and I plan on buying the same on the other 4. Right now I have 235/75R16 , but they are getting down and want new sneakers before winter gets here.

Same here. The blue coating is still on the white lettering.

If you don't do a highly aggressive tire you should be fine.
