Trying to fit bigger tires on 2006 WK Limited
 
Hey guys, so I am looking into buying new tires for my wk HEMI, I was looking at the Nitto TerraGrappler AT in a size of 265/70/17 on my OEM wheels, does anyone know if this would fit or what I would have to do, ie body spacers or wheel spacers to get them on. I know the stock tires were 245/65/17 and I don't thinki I would have to change anything but would get a better stance and look with the next size up. I would appreciate any feedback you all have. Thanks

I really think you would be happy with Frankie's new setup of 245-70-17 REVO 2's. They look mean and perform great in bad weather.

But I am just making a suggestion.

I say if you're gonna spend the money on bigger tires you might as well put a 2" lift on it. It will look a lot beefier with the new tires!

I agree about the 2" lift, would you still put 265/70/17 on that tohugh or go even bigger? What does frankies's set-up look like?

265's are perfect for a 2" lift.. not trimming of the fender.
