Talking Tires?!?!?

Ok guys, I haven't posted too much on here but I have been reading quite a bit lately. I'm trying to decide what kind of tires to get for my 2008 JGC Limted. It has 245/60R18 's on now. I have been searching online for tires available in that size and finding out there aren't too many choices. Besides changing wheels to get a different size tire, anyone have any advice regarding tires? I drive mostly highway but I need something that does well in snow and will last awhile. I work in a busy hospital ER and need to get to work when the snow is deep.. Thanks in advance for your replies.. --C

Re: Tires?!?!?

Thanks for the replies!! Just searched tire rack. com and the destination a/t's don't come in the size I need.. Any other suggestions for a 245/60R18?

The 2008 JGC Limited has an option for 18 inch rims which the previous owner purchased. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/SelectTireSize.jsp?autoMake=Jeep&autoModel=Grand+C herokee+Limited&autoYear=2008&autoModClar==

This link might help. Nitto Crossteks were purchased. I really like those stock chrome 18s btw.

Re: Tires?!?!?

How about a 265/60/18. pretty sure that'll fit. Should be a little over 31".


Edit. I just read the link from the post above. That guy has the 265/60/18 and it looks like no lift. So they should work. And fill in the wheel well better.

Re: Tires?!?!?

Michelin has a set of LTX M/S's that are the size you're looking for. They last 10+ years, 100,000 miles+ and they're good on any terrain. I highly recommend them. They'll also be the best tire for comfort/noise/luxury for highway driving. If they cost more than you were planning on, calculate them on an annual basis or $ per mile driven basis and they'll quickly drop in price compared to the competition.

Re: Tires?!?!?

Yea brother, you dont have to go with the stock size, you can get away with a little bit taller sidewall if it helps ya find a good deal on a set of tires. Just look up what you can fit with the stock suspension
