Tires for SRT8 rims??

Don't kill me for bringing this up lol just a few last questions before I make my purchase...

thought it would be a good idea to hop over to the srt8 part of the forum to get some more input.
I have a set of oem srt8 rims I'm looking to put on my 07 Jeep laredo the stock tire size on it now is 245/65/17.

Can anyone recommend a tire set up for me. Size and brand. Everyone is telling to go with the nitto420s but I don't feel I need such a performance tire like that on a v6 jeep lol... Not looking to spend over $1000..closer to $800 if possible. These will only be on in the spring and summer months.
I was thinking of just going with the stock srt8 tire size? What tire set ups do you have on your srt rims? And what size? Thank you!!

Delinte Desert Storm D8's work well if you're on a budget. They have been great for me so far. If you have the stock staggered rims, then 275/40 fronts and 315/35 rears would be perfect. If all your rims are the same size (9") then 275/40 all the way around would work. Should be able to get them for around $650 shipped at the most. Mine were a little cheaper.

315 rear?? On a Laredo? Seems so wide I'm worried they wouldn't fit
