hatrick19 I just put 265/65R18 KO2ís on my 2016 Laredo and they fit and look great! No rubbing and plenty of clearance on the upper front spindle. Speedometer is off by maybe 1 mph.

I had 2015 Laredo 4x4 and had 275 65 R17 A/T TA KO2's on it and it was a great fit. Love for these to look similar.
If somebody sees this today and has another recomendation for me, please reply!
Good Luck! Post some pics when you are done.

Thanks for the input, glad I'm not the only one looking at them. Anyone put the Open County AT3's on already? I did find this review after I posted my note:

255/70-18 are nominally 32.1 inch, some brands smaller some brands taller. Many here have reported no QL issues with that tires size and JK wrangler Sahara wheels (which are 46 offset so they stick out a little more but the tires are narrower). The only issue seems to be sensors. 2016 and up use different sensors. So you need to match model years, buy new sensors, or deal with the nag.
Thanks, I may go see them. He had them on a 2011, so sensors might be perfect.

I have a line on some used wheels with 255/70-18 as well. Those work out to about 32", correct? Any issues with QL in park/exit height with that size? Seems like 1.5" so only .75" more radius. I think there is that much room.

255/70/18 for $450 with nearly new Bridgestone Dueller AT's.
Wondering if I should make the jump.
No modifications currently to my suspension and such.

The wheels are from the JK Altitude Edition.

Itís a gamble, as tolerances vary, but they work for many people. Itís a good deal. Iíd probably go for it.

I did watch Prodigal Overland's 0-60 testing on YouTube post all of his mods, he's running the Falken Wildpeak A/T3 in the 265/65R18. He was getting about 10 seconds, although he should have only tested to 58mph with his Hemi Trailhawk, so probably in the mid to high 9's really.

I pretty much have it down to 3 options (I'm not looking to go too aggressive for off road). They are:
Continental TerrainContact A/T
Toyo Open County A/T III
Falken Wildpeak A/T3

The Wildpeak's are pretty heavy, 46lbs! The other two both come in at 39lbs...compared to the stock Premier LTX's, which were 33lbs in the smaller size. The Wildpeak's are 43 lbs in the stock size, so pretty heavy.

I'm wondering if anyone has put the NEW Toyo Open Country A/T III's on their JGC yet? There isn't a whole lot of information in terms of user reviews yet (like on Discounttire or Tirerack) but I do like the look of them and their performance is on par with the Wildpeaks, it would probably make sense to skip the extra weight.

OK, thanks, any year 18"?
The bummer is I have some real nice 235/65-18 winter tires for my wife's Cadillac XT5. I really like how they have performed over the last couple of winters (I have them on old SRX rims and swap them for the winter from the 20s. Other than road noise, the stupid things actually ride better then the stock 20s (1" more air never hurts!).
I plan on using this Overland like we used to use her XT5, and maybe keep it off the nasty stuff some, so I want something made for Pittsburgh slop/ice on all the up/down hills curves.
What I have now is these, and for some reason they are also wearing very well. I didn't expect that in a winter tire. Actually they are still on my wife's Cadillac, we haven't been driving due to all this lockdown crap, and WFH full time now, so I haven't bothered swapping them yet.

First question
What donor vehicles (and year range) will actually bolt up to a 2012 JGC? I know 2011+ JGC and Durangos will, what else? I want maximum sidewall and 17" might be iffy correct? I have several tires in mind, probably something a bit taller overall than the stock 265/50-20 and 265/60-18 but nothing drastic.
I tried reading through the stickies, but now that there are literally hundreds of pages, some out of date, I figured I just ask.
On a stock 2012 with QL. In a normal width (265/275), what is the largest overall diameter tire that is safe at any ride height including park/entry/exit.
And of the myriad of sizes, which one has the most options to pick from? Like for example is 265/70-18 more common than 265/60-18? Or should I just stick with my stock 20s, and swap tires for the winter?
I have been looking at Craigslist to see if anything pops up but I want a good idea what will work before I go too far.
There are no changes as far as wheel fitment 2011-2020, so advice for any years is relevant. The change to more aluminum control arms didn't change fitment. The first page of the fitment report sticky should be pretty much up to date except for late entries into the fitment chart.

When pushing the size limit, some have found liner wear around the filler neck that they did not notice initially.

You may have HD brakes, so 17 inch wheels are a non starter. 32 inch diameter is the limit without some fuss.

There are production variances, and worn brake pads give you more caliper clearance. Typically 18 in wrangler wheels mate up fairly well, but try before you buy. Dunno of any other make/model wheels that mate up well.
