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

^^ Yep, what they said. Great tire for a decent price. I put mine on in Oct and they absolutely tore through the snow. Very pleased with them so far.

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?

What kind of stock rims do you have that are an 18 inch rim? You sure your getting that number right....

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. :thumbsup:

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.

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. :thumbsup:

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
