Re: Cherokee Latitude 4x4 V6 Wheel & Tire Upgrade
After trying to figure out backspacing, clearances, etc. I went to a tire and wheel shop in Irvine, CA.
I've used this approach before. It isn't cheap, but you can guarantee a fitment that works.
Basically, I go to a shop and show them what I have and tell them that I think a certain tire will fit - in this case, I used a Toyo Proxes STII 275/55R-17 tire and suggested a Focal F9 wheel in 17x8 which was wider than stock, but this combination would produce a similar diameter (so no speedo recalibration). If they can get a tire and rim to check it out, they will mount it up and check it out if you agree to buy the set once it works!
This fitment worked for me, even though I had a few doubts. Nevertheless, if they couldn't make it work, then you won't have to buy it. Takes the risk out of it.
Here is what it looks like on my ride.
