  1. WK2 Grand Cherokee Forum
    Does anyone have a spare matching their other 4 tires and do a 5 tire rotation? Any issues? I've heard that if 1 tire is of a different diameter it can cause issues with the full time 4 wheel drive systems in the Grand Cherokees. I bought a spare matching my other 4 tires and it seems reasonable...

    Currently running 37 inch Baja ATZP3’s (37x12 50R17LT) which are getting tough to find. Blew one on the trail so now I’m running my spare which has pretty low tread compared to the other three which still have thousands of miles left on them. Looking at the new version from Mickey Thompson but...
  3. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    I have searched through the internet but haven't found any similar posts about WKs so here I am.. My stock tires are 235/65/17 and I'm trying to go at least 245/65/17 or even 255/65/17 for a more aggressive look. I wonder what is the biggest tire size I can fit in the spare space underneath the...
  4. WK Grand Cherokee & XK Commander Forum
    I recently purchased an 09 WK Grand Cherokee Laredo with Quadra-Trac I so it has the Brake Lock Differential for 4 Wheel Drive system. I've found it amazingly capable on some moderate trails so far and have been in a few situations where I believe BLD kicked in. It has surpassed my expectations...

    Newbie Question...What is the best practice on the spare tire considering the weight of 35" w/ 18"x12.5" wheel? I just bought a 2017 Wrangler Unlimited Sport to make it my way. I just put 35's All-Terrain on 18" alloy wheels. I only bought 4...as I got an incredible deal on Centerlines. I...

    I just bought a 2017 Wrangler Unlimited Freedom Edition. Got it home and took off the dealer advertising spare tire cover and found the spare has a yellow stripe painted all the way around it on the tread and some red and green painted marks as well. I was planning to leave it uncovered, but...

    I bought my jeep used, and the last owner added a locking nut to the spare tire, but didn't give me the key. the link below should be a picture of what the head looks like. I've been looking online to buy the same lock, but I can't find any markings that indicate a brand, or serial number. I...

    Tow Hitch Carrier/Spare Tire Problems Ok, I am a disabled but active 31 year old. I have a class III Tow Hitch installed on my 03 Liberty 3.7L V6 and have attached a power-wheelchair carrier. The carrier is able to fold up when not in use but the spare tire is in the way by about 5" so it has...

    Im going to start work on a bumper/spare tire carrier for my tj and I wanted to make it an aitrank too. Im going to use 2x4 1/8" wall (in interest of saving weight) square tubing. I know it won't hold a lot of air but I thought it would give my little portable air compressor a head start since...

    I recently bought a new set of tires and am going to have them mounted soon. Whoever the previous owner was they put a new tire on the rear right wheel and left all the others, including the spare bald. Since I'm cheap and didn't buy a 5th tire for the spare, I want to keep that one good tire as...

    I recently purchased my first jeep, a 2006 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with a 4” lift with 33 tires” after driving a few times there was a constant squeaking noise which turned out to be the spare tire mount had cracked before I bought it and had been welded back only to crack again because of the...
  13. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So after about 15 years of driving around with the stock spare tire I decided to put the correct size spare tire (31 X 10.5) on my jeep. I will be using the stock tire carrier but I have reinforced the tailgate and replaced the hinges with new ones. The problem is the tire barely contacts the...

  16. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    Alright, this thing is bonkers! The bottom lug nut for the spare wheel mounting is absolutely, positively, stripped beyond I've ever seen before. Must be like one thousand foot pounds of torque. Anyway, as a last resort, the only way I can figure to get it off, is to drill through the mounting...

    First, Thanks for any help or advice given. Ok... I plan on removing my spare tire, the carrier, the light, and wires (light) from the tailgate to put on a bumper/tire carrier combo to fit 35" tires.
