from 245/60-18 to 265/60-18?

Can I put 265/60-18 on my 2008 GC Overland without any rubbing?

I want to put on Cooper Discover at3's and they don't make a 245/60-18.

Thanks, CK

Possibly. Running stock rims? It will probably be really close to the bolt so you might have to run spacers. Your best bet is to go to a tire store and see if they'll fit one so you can check your clearance. That's the only way you'll know for sure. I know of a few people who are running 265/65/17 on stock suspension, but most are running spacers or after market wheels.

Thank you very much for the info. I will have them put on one of the 265's to check. CK

Clark, you are in the same boat I'm in. 18" rims on an 08 JGC, 245/60 on their now. Not the best selection for A/T at this size. What did you end up finding out with the 265/60's?

Does anyone else have any suggestions for A/T's tires?

So for I have not gotten any other tires.

I just sprayed fluid film on my rims and am hoping for good results.

I just don't want my rims to get the Highway Dep. "Slop Rot"

I can live with the 18". I'm still looking for a good All Weather tire.

Will report if I find one. CK
