General Grabbers UHP are amazing in snow and light off road as well as being very good on the road wet or dry.

Hi

Have not been around for ages due to having to sell my beloved Jeep when my job vanished in 2010 and I have not managed to find full time work to date!

But....

I sold my Jeep complete with chip, to a good friend who lives around the corner from me, and he loves the Jeep in the same way I did , and the chip has been faultless and he gets 32 (UK) MPG and loves the performance

I currently run a 1999 Jaguar S-Type, which has been a great car, but I am constantly looking for a Jeep Cherokee of the same vintage so will still be around here

Re: Another tyre question from teh UK

Hi there! I fitted stock size 246/65x17 0n my 2007 Grand Cherokee. They are Cooper Discoverer ATR. I went with the stock size as these are my winter tyres/rims and the main issue with going oversize on Grand Cherokee's is the excess thread length on the top ball joint.
Remove some of this and you can easily fit 75 profile tyres, But with WK Grand Cherokees you can not change the speedo drive to correct the speed difference.
