What's the widest tires I can go on the 2015 Altitude?

Re: 2015 JGC Altitude widest tires/wheels

SkunKd makes a good point about considering your spare. While tire width doesn't matter there, your spare tire diameter must be matched to what you run at the four corners normally. That's the nature of a 4WD vehicle. You cannot run different size tire diameters without damaging the drive train.

Spare tire - check.

So if I buy another wheel with that 285/50/20 tire on it, it likely won't fit in the spare compartment, right?

Anyone done this, and if so what brand did you buy?

Re: 2015 JGC Altitude widest tires/wheels

Is it correct the 285/50/20r will fit if you remove the storage compartments? Does a 275/55/20r fit, if so this is a reason to go with that size instead of the 285.

Re: 2015 JGC Altitude widest tires/wheels

I doubt that the lid will close properly, I run 275/55/20 on the car and a 255/70/18 as a spare only a few mm difference, it is close as get. If u are going to run 285/50/20 then the spare to run is a 265/65/18. Again the same rolling diameter.

My spare is a used tyre, mounted on a Laredo rim.
