    Max tires 2004 WJ

    jeep grand cherokee performance 2004
    I currently have a 2" boost lift (RE) with stock 17" tires and currently 245/65/17.
    What is the max tire that would work on the current rims with an A/T tire.
    Here is my current tires. Would like to go just a tad bigger.

    Thanks for any help and suggestions.

    With or without trimming? I am on a 3 inch lift and running basically a 31 and can't go any larger without starting to trim. Those are basically a 30 (29.5 according to my tire calculator) so I don't know if you could go any larger without rubbing issues or starting to trim. I may be wrong however, there are lots of folks on here much more knowledgeable than myself.

    I ran 245/45r17 on JK rubicon wheels on my WJ with a 2" lift. They just barely rubbed everywhere without any trimming. It was perfect.

    I did a 4 inch lift and 32s right when we bought this thing, so I probably can't answer your question. What I will say though, is check out Bushwackers fender flare video and it shows where you can/can't trim. If you decide to trim, it opens up a lot more options for tire sizes.

    Gong to add the 1.25 spidertrax wheel spacers to help bring out the stock rims. Perhaps I will put those on first and then assess tire size again.

    I have a 2010 WK, 3.5 lift in the front and 2.5 lift in the back, stock 18 inch rims. 1.5 spacers. I currently have 33x10.5R18 on it. I have very little rubbing. I did the pinch weld mod on the front, no cutting on the rear.

    Looks sharp. For some reason those tires don't look like 33's. But they fit in nicely. Are those Toyo AT's?

    Looks like I am going to do springs (2 inch rear and 2.5 front), a bit longer rear sway bar links and add an extra 3/4" spacer if needed for the front. The spacer was recommended for the V8. Then going to do 1.25 spacers with stock 17" rims and add fox shocks with a steering stabilizer.

    Once I get this all on I will see what tires may fit and look the best.
    Looking for an aggressive looking AT.
    Or perhaps the Toyo RT but not sure if they make them smaller than a 33 on a 17" rim. Need to investigate.
    Or these.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
