Wheel and tire combination

Is this wheel wide enough for a 295/45/20 tire.
20" Grand Cherokee Wheels Chrome 20x9 Rim Fits Jeep | eBay

According to this chart for the Ventus ST tire I'm looking at, it says the rim width range is 9.5-11

Welcome to Hankook Tire International Website

The wheel I'm looking at is only 9"

According to this tire calculator it seem to be the perfect size for my 2012 Overland. It's wider but all other specs are very close to the 265/50/20 oem tire.

Re: Wheel and tire combination

Just wonder why the 295/45/20 can't be used on the 2012 Overland. Isn't the body close to the SRT?

I had the Ventus ST RH06 295/45/20 on my 2012 Overland and it fit no problem. And I had 20X10 wheels. I think the 20X9 are not wide enough for that size tire

Re: Wheel and tire combination

Did the tires stick out from the fenders?

Of course you can...20" rims and tires are standard on many of the trim levels that include QL. And the outside diameter of the tire remains the same, anyway, unless you choose to buy larger tires.

I have 285's on an 8" wheel so 295's on a 9" wont be a problem.

Re: Wheel and tire combination

I just worried the 295/45/20's are going to stick out beyond the fender... I don't want that look.

Because with the ORA options, they specifically replace the 20" wheels with 18" wheels for more rubber in the sidewalls which is preferred for off-road use. Many dealers will do a swap for you if you ask nicely and they have a vehicle or customer situation that will take the 18" wheel/tire combination.
