Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

Does any one know what the largest 18 inch wheel and tire combo for a 2017 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk could take with the quad lift? Has 265x60x18 now. Had many Wranglers but never a Grand Cherokee. Thanks

275/65R18 is about the biggest most recommend on the forums for QL it seems. You'd need to match the spare to that diameter too. The tire fitment thread shows 255/70R18 fits the spare well and is the same 32.1" diameter.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

I don't have a TH - but 275/65/18 is what I run on my QuadraLift Limited, seems to be the perfect size for it.

It is the same Jeep as everyone before it, all the same rules apply for tire sizing even with incrementally small changes it is the same exact body structure.

Correct. ~32" in diameter is about the limit without physical body modification. And don't forget you need to change out the spare, too, since it must be the same diameter you're running on the four corners.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

+ 1 for the fitment guide link please.

I have a trailhawk with qaudra lift also and have been wondering what a good tire/wheel upgrade would be. I'd be happy with a little bigger tire and some more offset to get the tires sticking out a bit past the wheel wells. I'm super happy with the stock vehicle and even like the wheels, but a little meatier stance would complete it for me.

I've thought about running spacers with the stock wheels, but have never done that before and was concerned about running spacers off road.

Here is one here, I believe one of these guys in the thread modified their spare tire area to fit a 32" tire.




Another WK2 w. Rubicon Wheels


I'm not sure what the thread is but here is an external link that will assist in size comparison...hope this helps.

Thanks for this.

Does you know what the max offset is by any chance?
