I put Cooper Discover ATP from discount tire on about 3k miles ago and they handle the roads great and are quiet. I have not had the off road or in adverse weather.

They are awesome! Much more aggressive than I thought they'd be. You really just have to see them in person. I got load range E and at 35 PSI, they ride great!

Agree. They look super tuff! Pictures don't do them justice.

They look great, but the best part is the stuff you'll drive through thinking there's no way I'm going out the other side!

Fitting the Spare Tire

Jeep GC Laredo WK, 2008 (2009 model)
Question:
1. Will a 365/70/r17 fit in the spare location?
2. If not, what's the max that does fit?
3. Whats the solution to fitting a larger tire, and how large of a tire can fit in that augmented space?

I didn't see this posted elsewhere here. I'm about to do a lift & then larger tires. The recommended size I've seen for a 2-inch lift is 365/70/r17 - which is what I'm going with untill convinced otherwise.
I'm doing the Rocky Road 2.25 chuck/spacer lift and the 4xGuard JBA Upper A-arms. I'll upgrade shox/springs later (saving $$$).
Have any of you had problems with fitting a 365/70/r17 in the spare compartment? I've seen posts recomending a solution but don't understand exactly what augmentation they're explaining to get the larger tire to fit.

Thanks
