You might need a worn one and air it down...I think Omelet did it, maybe ask him.

Actually I think I would need to wear down the four on the jeep & keep the spare new!

I wonder if there are any warnings to not air down only the rear tires or only the front tires? the diameter of the air down tires is different?

I don't think it's as big of a deal off road with airing down because you're generally on looser terrain. I was referring to airing down the spare tire to make it fit, however.

I had a tire go bad on my old ride, a 2005 Escalade. It like our WK was full time 4 wheel drive. The tire place I bought my tires from told me I had to replace all 4 tires or sign a waiver not holding them responsible for damage to the drivetrain if I only replaced 1 tire (I took a nail to the sidewall). This was even though all tires were the exact same size but the existing tires were down to like 50-60 percent tread. They told me overall diameter must be exact of damage can and will occur.

It fits after doing the rear hitch mod and it being aired down.

Well here they are on the WK. Ride is notably improved. Handling is great... man do they grip.
I had originally thought about going Nitto Grapplers on some 17s but when I came across this deal($1000) with BRAND NEW nittos and the wheels (brand new) I had to jump on it.

I love it. I think only other things I will do is a CAI and eventually an exhaust.

A buddy suggested a bolt-on turbo... ?

I'd get a Hypertech tuner before the CAI. Didn't know about an available turbo.

To the OP, the SRT tires are the same diameter, the difference is that the rear tires are wider than the front. But the diameter is the same.

I have a 255/75R17 in the stock location, so it will fit. Also from what I have come to understand from the Jeep engineers, the QD2 system is able to compensate for a tire size difference at low speeds. That is why I have been able to get away with using a 32" tire for a spare while running 33" tires. Russ does the same thing. He is the one who I got my info from. He had a 265/70R17 spare while running 295/70R17 tires. Basically what I was told is that if need be you can swap the spare on and limp to the nearest service station and the QD2 system will compensate, just don't try to fly around doing freeway speeds. I have never tested this though. I do carry a quality tire repair kit with me so I have it before I have to swap the spare in.

I thought I remembered reading that somewhere just could not find it.

Thanks for the tip. DEF going to look into it.

Changed out the antenna for a black/nubby rubber thing. Will post new pics.
