Why wouldn’t you have to change your spare? 255/70 is the same diameter as 275/65 =32.1”. Nothing wrong with the Atturo other than the limited sizes.

It’ll clear just fine. I’ve had zero issues with my 265/65r18 Ridge Grapplers.

hgp1958 No issue at all. I've been running Yoko GO15 ATS (265/65/R18) for 3-4 years and on my 2nd set. 65,000 miles on 1st set and could have gone further but wanted new winter tread. No need for offset as the tires work fit and work great at that size - 2013 Wk2 Laredo 4x4

18" steel wheel option.

Has anyone had any experience with this seller? They claim to have 18" steelies that fit a newer Grand Cherokee. The web site does not inspire confidence.




But if it's for real, it's a great option.

ColdCase OEM wheels have a 56mm offset. 18mm offset seems to be the sweet spot for maximum clearance, 30mm has been calculated as a pretty good compromise overall.

Those wheels have a 12 mm offset, which sets 1 ¾ farther out from a stock fitment. They may stick out beyond the fender a little. You may want to look for for OEM Wrangler takeoffs.

Looking at getting these wheels as a snow set for a 2019 WK2. I'm pretty confident they will fit but just want to conform the 5.5" BS is correct for a stock fitment. Its got the altitude package with 20s but need/want a smaller wheel for winter and more sidewall. Having trouble finding a stock take off set locally

I think you’re asking for trouble. I would find a used tire nearby and have them swap it onto your spare wheel. Or have it towed. I know it’s not cheap, but it’s far less than if you have to replace the transfer case.

ColdCase Thats over an inch difference in diameter, 3% . I haven't driven one far with that much of difference, but 3-4% difference has been mentioned if you drive below 50, are familiar with the handling quirks, and limit yourself to 50 miles.

ColdCase How much smaller? What are the two tire sizes? Mostly straight or curves? Its not a locking transfercase so its not going to bind but different tire sizes will cause the transfer case diff to spin more than usual and add wear. Too far off ABS and traction control will become unhappy and the transfercase will heat up.

hgp1958 Will driving on a smaller spare for 50 miles or so cause any issues with Qt-1 4x4, 2013 laredo base 4x4?
