Tire-Wheel Fitment Reports and Summary

If you fitted tires other than the OEM size or fitted non OEM wheels, post the fitment results here and include the following information:

Tires Size; Tire Brand/model; Wheel brand/model; Wheel offset/backspace/width; Lift size or QL; Wheel Spacer; Rub/No Rub; Modifications, Spare well fit. Add any install notes and advice. A photo if you have one. If you are fitting non OEM wheels, mention if you have HD or STD brakes. Also mention if you've driven in mild or challenging off road conditions.

We will update the fitment summary tables below as reports come in.

All other posts will be deleted but feel free to discuss and ask questions in other tire/wheel threads. Ask questions here too, but every once in awhile we'll go through and clean up the thread, so don't be upset that your post gets removed.

TPMS sensors changed in 2016. Jeep changed sensors in 2016, wheels with older sensors are not compatible. 2016 part number is 68313387AB. For 2017 there are more part numbers in parts books to confuse the parts counter. You will probably need to use your VIN to get the right sensors. There are reports of model year 2016 Wrangler wheels and sensors working in 2016 WK2s.

In general tires less than 32.1 inch can be made to fit without modification. There have been a few exceptions reported, primarily with the popular 275/55/20 size during high speed dips. Common "easy" mods to fit larger tires are folding over the pinch weld (see the modification sticky thread for instructions), removing the front fender air dam, trimming the felt fender liner and screwing it down tight, and using wheel spacers. Adding a lift or leveling kit is more difficult. WK2 spacer type lift kits change the compression bump stop so a little larger tire may fit before fender rub, but they also reduce articulation. Spring kits usually work better but the WK2 fender wells and suspension components make for a tight fit anyway. Currently there are no lift kits available to the public that modify control arms or suspension articulation, as far as we know. The air suspension can be adjusted a little (half inch) for more clearance, but there are no lift kits available.

Spare Tire Well With the trays removed, a 255/70/18 will fit in the spare tire well without raising the cargo floor. That puts you right around the 32" OD. Tires wider than 10 inches will raise the floor.

OEM wheels have a 56mm offset. A nice tire/wheel size comparison tool is here: http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp Many reports do not mention HD or STD brakes, so beware of using 17s with HD brakes. If you are going custom wheels, a 18mm offset seems to be the sweet spot for maximum clearance, 30mm has also been calculated. OEM tires sizes are: P245/70R17; P265/60R18; and P265/50R20. There is a wheel encyclopedia here: https://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f309...pedia-1372403/

Summits and High Altitudes have wider fender trim. Note that the Summit and High Altitude trim on later models is wider than other models. There is less tire clearance.

PSI The best PSI to run on the road can be found by doing a cold tire chalk test. By putting chaulk across the tire and rolling forward on it, you can see what PSI gets the entire chalk line rubbed off, thus the full profile of the tire is in use. This is to give the best wear on road.

Off Road the WK2 ends up on three wheels much of the time. Airing down below 25 psi tends to flatten the tire that is carrying all the weight when the WK2 Tripods. Suggest not airing down past 36 psi unless you are on a beach which requires more float. Try that off road and leave it if it works for you.

Note that the dimensions in the table are tire standards but actual diameters have a wide variety between brands and models, so always check the manufacture's spec sheet. For example; 275/65R18's on OEM rims seems to often fit without any mods, but others report rubbing. Not all 275/65R18s are the same size, Nittos have a tendency to run small and fit well where other brands run larger and rub.

Also note that many install Wrangler take off wheels/tires without issue. But some are tight, the wheels fit with worn brake pads but often rub the calipers with fresh pads.

Michelin ltx ms2. 275/55R20 on 20" gloss black Overland wheels (same dimensions as stock 20's). 1.25" Bora spacers. Had an occasional rub on dips at high speed and off road. No rubbing at all with the RRO Leveling Kit, with or without spacers.

I also was going to power coat them black but linking the colour now... Here is a shot of the tire front the front and rear on a cold morning.. You can see the tires don't really stick out at all.

I do get a little rub when in park mode and fully turn the wheel it makes slight slight contact with the inner fenders. Noticed it while backing up the trailer last night.

I'm running 20x9 Fuel Maverick wheels with + 20mm offset. Tires are 275/55/20 Nitto Terra Grapplers, about 32" diameter. No rubbing unless in park mode with the steering wheel cranked all the way to one side. It will go lock to lock in standard height mode without rubbing, which leads me to believe the set up will work on non-air suspension models. Road noise is slightly higher than stock, but it's a barely noticeable difference. The noise is reduced on some road surfaces. I've noticed a loss of about 2-3 mpg according to the EVIC, but that was also at the same time I reinstalled the roof rack. Mileage may go up after I remove the basket, we'll see. I'm not too worried about it.

I put the Eibach All Terrain Lift on my 2013 WK2 Laredo (2" in front, 1/2" in the rear), got some new wheels 17" x 8.5" 5-127.00 (1/2" wider and slight offset from stock wheels), and wanted to go up one size from the stock tire (from 245/70-17 to 255/70-17), but the larger tires were very close to the wheel well and would have rubbed when the suspension compressed, so I stuck with the stock tire size.

Factory Overland wheels with Nokian Rotiiva 265/60R18's in QL park. No rubbing in any QL mode. Surprisingly quiet - I can't hear much difference from the Michelin LATS they replaced.

I swapped out the factory tires when I took delivery. Had them put on 275-65/18 Goodyear Wrangler Adventure Kevlar on the factory wheels. Have QL and zero rubs even with the suspension in the down position. I really like these tires on the street, very grippy in the wet and not at all noisy. I haven't gotten any miles yet on trails.
