If you have the heavy duty brakes, 17" wheels are not recommended and may rub. Only the Laredo and Laredo E is available with 17" wheels on the JGC.

Jim thank you very much for your reply. Mine is a 4x4 Limited so I believe they will not fit. I do not care much for the 20 inch wheels that are on it. I will start searching for some after market choices in the 18 inch class.

Re: 255/75 r17

Sticking with 18" wheels will insure you'll have a good fit and there are plenty of tire options available to you. Keep in mind that if you choose tires that are larger in diameter than OEM (~30.6") you'll not only affect speedo/odo accuracy, but will also have to replace your spare since it must match the diameter of your regular tires for a 4x4 vehicle. There's no "practical" way to adjust the computer for the alternate size, either...dealer cannot do it and the only way identified so far is with an expensive tuner system.
