New Jeep Owner!

I just got my frist Jeep, '11 Lerado X, and these Lattitudes have to go! I'm nervous to corner with them in the snow, they inspire zero confidence I've done a pile of research and I'm leaning towards the Cooper AT3s. The question I have is whether or not a 265/65/18 will fit w/o other mods - no leveling kit. I'd love to see pics of someone who's done this.

Happy New Years!!! CHEERS!!!

Re: New Jeep Owner!

Congrats on your new ride and welcome to the family!

My WK2 came stock with Latitudes also. I finally wore them out and replaced them with Cooper Discoverer H/T Plus 265/60/18s. I have put around 300 miles on them and think they are great tires. No drifting or wandering occurring at all (unlike the others) $608 sent to my door from Discount Tire Direct online. I searched for larger tires to fill up the wheel wells, but if pricepoint is issue, these will do you well.

Cheers

Thanks a lot. I'm still looking to bump up one size - mostly for appearance. Know anything about that Cooper AT3?
