Tire Suggestions

I have an '08 WK with the "premium" 18" wheels and I was looking to throw an all-terrain tire on without having to get rid of the nice wheels. Any suggestions for a tire I can use? Or, if anyone has had luck with tweaking some measurements, I'm up for that too! (245/60R18)

I ran 255/60-18 Hankook Dynapro ATm on mine before. Certainly a good option.

I had the 18s on my 08. I'm not sure they were premium. They appeared to be chrome (which I'm not a fan of), but were just chrome hub caps. I downsized to some black rock 17s with 245/65/17 KO2s. Tires are quieter than expected on highway and still fairly aggressive. I didn't love them in the snow though.

I'm sure we're talking about the same rims - these are the chrome ones that I think are called the "Summit Cast Aluminum" and they're the only 18" wheels for the WK I believe. Thanks for the suggestions!

I ran DynaPros on my XJ and loved them.
