All Weather tires

I have an 08 Overland. It has 245/60R18 on it. I can't find any All weather tires. I prefer the Cooper Discover AT3. I have them on all my other Jeeps but they don't make a Discover AT in the 18". Any suggestions?

245/60R18 seems a bit narrow, RU sure that isn't 265/60R18?

The Conti DWS are pretty nice, as are the Michelin M+S, both are excellent all around traction. The Michelin M+S isn't too shabby for mild offroad and has a pretty good treadlife.

Re: All Weather tires

I replaced the OEM Michelin tires on my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with Nokian Rotiiva AT all-season tires, 265/60-18 because the Nokian are suitable for off-roading and are rated for winter use; they qualify as a winter snow tire. So far, after 5000 miles, the Nokian Rotiiva AT are still quiet and comfortable. I bought the Nokian online and had a local tire shop mount and balance them.

Everywhere I look the tire called for on the 2008 GC Overland with 18" rims is a 245. Will a 265 fit without rubbing anything?

That would probably give me a much better choice.
