Hello everyone!

I'm owner jeep compass 2012. Have tires 215/55/r18.
Can I change tires to 235/65/r17 without lift?
What rims (et 40,38 or another) I need to buy?

Thanks

I don't know of any tunes available for it, and if there is, the gains will be minimal, and probably not worth the cost.

in the size I specified the only available choice would be yokohama geolanders.

I have 235 tires and had to order spacer so if you stay with 225 you won't have to add spacers and I have the lift on it as well

adding xeons are not worth the cost or the hassle.

as far as an AT tire, the geolander AT/S is about the only all terrain option from most retailers I've seen in the 225/67-17 size. If I was going to spend the money, and go with a off road look, I would be 15" rims. your tire options open up significantly. just look at the options for a 235/75-15 at tire rack or discount tire.
