Will 265/65 R17 tyres fit a WK
 
Simple question, will 265/65 R17 tyres fit a standard WK?

Can't get Revo's in the UK so my choice is narrowed and the General Grabber AT2 comes out very well in Tirerack reviews

Only size thats T rated for speed is the 265/65 R17 so these could well be on my shopping list

@ 103.00 GBP they are a good price, to replace with standard Goodyear Wrangler HP AW would cost 117.00 GBP and they are not that good in the wet and next to useless in mud or (not tried it yet) and snow and have a bad write up in Tirerack

I have 265/65/R17 on my WJ with no issues, I don't see the WK wheel well being any smaller than a WJ.

No need to worry if 265/65 fits

AT2 comes in 255/65 R17 and its an H rated tyre!!

Sorted

Thanks for the response

I have now found the AT2 listed in 255/65 R17 with a H rating

Am certain this size will fit with no issue's

Does'nt the SRT8 come with larger tires?

I know this is the 2nd reply but......

How does the standard suspension (shockers) cope with the lift?

Was the lift easy/cheap?

yea the lift only took about two hours to install and it was about 4-500 bucks. since it is just spacers it didnt change the handling or the way it drives at all

I have them on my WK and love them. I just found out they are great in snow too.

We have had a little snow in the UK, 8" has caused chaos, all airports have been closed at least one day this week, abandond cars all over the place, we are no good at dealing with snow

SUV's are regarded as the wheels of the (environmental) devil and no one in the UK would ever dream of summer/winter tyres so even with a decent 4WD I was still stuck in jams of cars that I couls not pass

MY GY HP AW were not very good in these conditions, although I never actually got stuck, it was a close run thing (only got 3mm tread left on the fronts)

Won't get caught again:)
