Will these tires fit?

The optional wheel on the JK that I ordered fits a P255/70R17 tire. Will a LT285/70R17 fit without any mods?

Thanks in advance?

tires that fit

I have a 2dr. jk x with 16" wheels,and just had 285/75r16 nitto terra grapplers put on and still had a little room to spare.I would suggest going to the tire manufacturers site and find the true height and width,then compare it to my tires specs. on the Nitto site.If its smaller or close you should be cool.By the way its amazing what tires will do for a jeep.From mail jeep to Rubi-look for just $725!Next purchase is new bumpers!

pics on the way

Believe it or not I'm not sure how to post a pic. My son has a digital camera and we'll work on it getting some pix posted.I'm not very computer savy,buts its about time learn.By the way this is my first jeep but I love it!The only 4x4s I've owned were full size pick-ups,so my first pine barren excursion with it I was amazed at how handles in the woods.Well I'm 40 now and I have finally seen the light!Jeeps Rule!

Welcome to the forum, G.

I'm off 13%. So... if the speedo says 62, I'm doing 70.

Thanks!

So are you actually putting more miles than the odometer shows? Is the odometer 13% off?

If the speedometer is off then the odometer is off as well.

Correct. Both read 13% low. When I go to calculate MPG, I adjust the odo reading accordingly.

speedo off

I would think that the speedo would read lower.Also the miles should be lower because with one revolution of the wheel the vehicle has gone farther than with the stock tires.Thus a mile with the bigger tires has to be longer than with the stock ones.So putting on bigger tires the your jeep will read slower than Its really going and read less miles than you really have.
