Need help quick!

I have a 2007 grand cherokee with stock rims. It has the 2" RRO lift on it. Can I go 255/75/17 without any additional mod?

shouldn't be a poblem....but you MIGHT have to put spacers on or cut your upper ball joint bolt off.

Re: Need help quick!

and possibly the pinch weld mod. Search through the Wheel and Tire thread under the WK forums.

I have 265/70/17 with my RRO lift and I needed the pinch weld and spacers to run those tires on the stock rims.

Re: Need help quick!

^^ ditto.

I run 265/70/17s on stocks and I went with 1.5" spacers and then did the pinch weld bc I was only getting MINOR rubbing at full lock, still bothered me though.

I'm assuming you will need the spacer with 75s to clear the UCA bolt, but maybe if you go with a 1 inch you could get away with no pinch weld. 1.5" will look more agressive though, IMO.

just search around.

Re: Need help quick!

i had the 1.5" spacers on stock wheels with 265/70's with no rubbing. when I put the 265's on my 9" rims, I have slight rubbing when almost full turn. I will probably end up doing the pinch mod sometime soon.
