#20 of 27 What are best R17 tyres for JGC hemi 5.7 - 2005

I have fixed four new Perilli 245/65 R17 ATR tires for my Hemi JGC 2005 but I noticed that they are too noisey at the inside while driving. I was told that because they are off-road hard tyres.
Can any one advise me what are a better performance and more quite/smooth on-road tyres for this Jeep. I'll be able to resell them over here with minor loss.

try Goodyear Fortera silent armor - they're quiet and smooth inside, and perform well in the rain/snow/gravel. i've had mine for 25K, and i plan to get the exact same tires again ('98 ZJ P245/75R16).

ive had mud tires on different trucks ive owned, if your looking for a mud tire thats quiet & has good "road manners", try the pitbull brand tires. go to tire rack.com, they should have them there or try pitbull tires.com

I purchased a 20inch rim tire set for this jeep and after 2 alignments , 2 sets of shocks, steering dampener I still had a wobble at about 50 mph. New wheels and tires Zinik 20 inch rims on Hankook P275/45 R20. I've moved back to the JGC stock rims and wheels and everything is fine. Is this an alignment issue?" If so anybody know of any specialty shops in the Chicago area that have expert knowledge in doing these alignments with upgraded tire\rim packages?
#25 of 27 Correct tires

I have two jeeps. One is a 4 Door wrangler with P22575R16 goodyear fortera silent armor tires and the other is a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with P23565R17 tires with tire pressure sensor. The Wrangler tires look larger. Can the R16 wheels and tires be used on the Overland? Is the pressure sensor affected? Am I violating anything by doing this. You may ask the reason so the wrangler is being lifted to accept much larger tires but the forteras are brand new. They are also very quiet compared to the wrangler AT's on the overland.

I went with Goodyear Fortera silent armor tires. After installing them I thought I was driving a different car because they were so quiet. The ratings for on road/off road/icenad snow are great.

It's not really an alignment issue but an incorrect rim offset issue. Meaning you got the wrong rims.
