#5 of 27 Have 215/75R15-Wanted Larger Tires-Please Help
Mar 01, 2007 (11:27 pm)
Would greatly appreciate any help. I have 96 Cherokee Sport with 215/75R15 wheels and tires. Just wondering what is the biggest possible tire size I can put on it with the current rim size. I'm thinking getting bigger wheels, perhaps 16" or 17" and maybe 2" or 3" left kit in the near future. I've installed the K&N Fuel Injection Performance Kits (FIPK) last summer and not sure if getting a lift kit would in any way affect the FIPK. Again, thanks a million for any input. I'm trying to figure out what options are possible 'cause I wanted to have some fun 4X4 and the factory tires aren't cutting it.

30 x 9.5 will fit fine - minimal rubbing on the front control arms at full lock and miss the fenders when the tires are stuffed. If you plan to do some heavy wheeling... make sure your bumpstops are in good shape. (The rears tend to dry-rot & fall off...)
If you lift a solid 2" you can clear 31 x 10.5's no sweat.
Mid 90's have a rep for being 'fussy' about lifts... some give no complaints at 4"... some give problems at anything higher than 2".
(Probably should have this moved to a separate thread...)

Thanks lundhd for that insight. You website says it all about your knowledge of 90's Cherokee. But what if I get 16" rims. What size backspacing would you recommend without lifting it at all so there would not be any rubbing either.

Has anyone replaced the stock size tires (245-65-17) with a larger tire like a 255-65-17? I would like to junk the goodyear tires right now and trade up to a larger tire but i am not sure if they will fit or rub. Any help would be appreciated.

I need some advice/help. I have a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2 Limited edition. I am looking to purchase new rims. I have looked at the Jeep commander rims, which are 17". I know i will need new tires also, does anyone know the best place to look as far as package deals, or anything else i will need to do this??

hi, I just got a 98 Cherokee Sport. This might have been answered already but I'm not much of a car person so I don't understand some of what is being said.
I would like to know what the biggest size my tire/wheels can be without lifting it. Any help would be appreciated , thanks

What is the widest tire I can go on a stock 17" wheel??? I want more rubber on the road, but don't want to give up any height on the sidewall. Thanks for any info on this.
