WK2 Tire Sizes that work

After searching the forums I have found that it is difficult to see what type of tire/wheel combos will work for my WK2. I am proposing everyone that has tire/wheels that are not stock to please reply to this post and follow the format given below. Please do not post pictures in this thread to keep the page size down. I will add the chart soon from info I have gathered. If the category does not apply use N/A or stock.

Overall Tire Diameter | Tire Size | Wheel Width | Backspacing | Offset | Lift | Wheel Spacer/Adapter | Tire Brand/Model | Trimming required Y/N |

Example:

30.5''|245/70R17 | 8'' | +55 | 2.5'' | 1.5'' | Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac | Y |

or if you have Quadralift:

30.5''|245/70R17 | 8'' | +55 | QL | 1.5'' | Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac | Y |

NOTE: IF YOU LEAVE INFORMATION OUT I CAN'T ADD IT TO THE DIAGRAM.

Re: WK2 Tire Sizes that work

Great idea!
Saw my setup on there, just wanted to edit that I do have 1.5 inch spacers front and rear.

Re: WK2 Tire Sizes that work

a bunch of ppl are running 275/55/20 on their stock 20x8 rims. I bought a set of Cooper Zeon LTZ in this size. They say it clears the front bolt, not by much but does and no rubbing so we shall see when I get the mounted.

Re: WK2 Tire Sizes that work

I would like to run cooper Zeons in 285/50/20. Does anyone have any experience with this size? I don't have QL but it is booked in for a 40mm suspension lift.

Thanks

Re: WK2 Tire Sizes that work

Good Day,

Just dumped a set of Lorenzo 030 Gloss Black - 22x9s with 305/40/22 on a 2012 GC Laredo with no issues. The ride is a bit stiffer with 35psi but will adjust after a few 100 miles on them. The 6.75 backspace and +38 offset work great and no rubbing anywhere.

I have this set up with no issues. I decided on this size after another member here had it also.

Re: WK2 Tire Sizes that work

Well my Cooper's in 275/55 are in and am going in a few hours to get them mounted. Hope they fit. According to ppl they will clear the ball joint by then skin on my chinny chin chin so lets hope it is the same with me.
