Tire Fitment Stock 04 WJ Laredo

I have a guy offering to sell me a set of 17" rims and tires off his 2018 Wrangler Sport. The rims are standard 17x7.5 rims with the standard backspacing. The tires on them are 245/75/17. Will those fit without rubbing on my son's stock 04 WJ Laredo? The original 16" alloy wheels are badly worn and corroded, so we're looking to replace. I'd prefer just to get rims, but if the tires fit, he's offering me a good deal. I'm just not sure they'd fit.

Anyone running 17" stock Jeep rims with that size tire on a stock WJ with no lift?

I have a stock height 2000 Limited 4.7 and have 245/75R17 and it rubs slightly on thr front tires when going in reverse. You should be fine with those. I am planning to put a 2.5 inch spacer lift on mine though.

Do you mean at full turn lock? If so, does it do it both ways? We'll ultimately put a 1.5-2" spacer lift on, as well.

So you'd say it is liveable for a daily driver? We won't do much in the way of trails with it until down the road when we install the lift. He's got the quadratrac II, so we don't want to increase driveline angles too much.

Does the 17" wheel/tire combo fit in the spare tire storage space in the cargo area?

I really appreciate your help with this! If it works, I think the wheels will look great on his Jeep. The tires still have a lot of tread, too, so they'll be good, as well. They are Bridgestone Dueller AT's.

Also, @jjj 2013, do you have any pics of your WJ with these? The guy is telling me he just wants to get rid of them, so I think I can get them pretty cheaply. The tires only have 6k on them, which is great.

Full lock, yes, mine rubs but when I back off, I don't hear or feel it. Yes, the spare tire area will fit the same tire. I have Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventures. Mine's a daily driver unless something goes wonky that I have to repair, lol. Like when I removed the front driveshaft because the CV joints failed a few weeks ago and when I bypassed my leaking heater core about a week ago but I'm still driving it. She seems to want to pile up work for me but it's all good, I love my Jeep!

I have a 2004 Overland with Up Country suspension and my 245/70R17 fit, but do barely rub in reverse in the wheel well right behind the fog lamp. Those tires would be an inch larger, I would think they would rub. Also, my wheels fit in the spare tire well, I do not think those will fit. You may want to consider that if you want to carry a spare tire.

It only takes a couple minutes to put a wheel on, I would ask if you could put one and see.

I do but I'm not a paying member so it won't let me post a picture.

That sucks. I didn't realize this forum required a paid subscription for stuff like that.

So you have a full size spare, right? I'm thinking the 245/75 wouldn't necessarily be a full inch greater diameter than a 70. I wouldn't think it would be much at all, except maybe slightly skinnier and maybe just a tad more diameter.

The guy would be coming from Ohio, so if he loads it up to bring them, it'll be a done deal with an agreed upon price. If he gives me a price I'd pay for just the wheels, I'll go for it. Even if a bit above that, I could probably get a hundred or two bucks for the tires at a used tire shop, I'd think. The wheels will be worth it. Only 6k on them with no scuffs marks scratches or rash of any kind. They are described as looking brand new. I think they'd be sharp on a WJ.

Actually, no, I have a 235/75R16 so it's slightly smaller. I need to get a 17" spare to make it match especially since I have Quadradrive. I'm not at home, otherwise I'd measure the tire in the spare well and let you know for sure how much additional room there is. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for JKU or JLU take-offs for that very reason, I think they'd look awesome on the WJ.

Yep, I have a picture of them and the size can clearly be seen. They are Bridgestone Dueler AT's.

This is a good site to compare the different sizes of tires

I made the guy an offer. I also found brand new Gladiator rims with the same tires, $500 bucks for four of them with less than 20 miles on them. That's plan B if he doesn't take my offer.

that seems like a pretty good deal. it'll be a tight fit until you get the lift put on

Yep. The tires on it now are still in great shape, so if they rub more than our liking, we'll set them aside until lifted. Really we're after the wheels. The tires are the bonus. The original wheels on it are in pretty rough shape.
