Tire size change?

I have 2014 latitude AD2 running stock 225/65/17 firestone destination LE tires. Want to get the 235/65/17 destination AT tires. Anyone know if I do this will i have enough turning radius clearance so that tires wont rub wheel well when turning? Especially when making very sharp turns. Thanks.

Several have swapped on the Trailhawk 245/65 17's onto the ADII Latitude with no problems so a smaller tyre should not be an issue unless the wheel offset is different.

Cheers, Dave.

235/65/17's do fit perfect. I am running that size on my cherokee with the Cooper Discoverer AT/3. I have no rubbing issues, even with the wheel turned fully to each side. I am also AD1.

That's the same thing I plan to do when it's time for new tires.
I ran Destination ATs on my 1990 Ramcharger and that thing was a beast in snow.
They last a good long time too for an AT.

I'm running 275/60-17 and have zero rubbing. My tires offer an extra 1" in tread width and 1/2" increase in diameter. They look and fit great!

I have 245/65/17 on my Active Drive 1 so the 235's will most definitely fit perfectly on your Active Drive 2! I have absolutely zero rubbing even when the wheel is turned all the way.

I believe the tires you buy are limited more by the rim size and that it seats properly, providing stability to the sidewall. Mucking with tire size may allow for clearance, but the tires characteristic may be changed.

"Wha's a Jeep?"
"The Jeep's a magical dog and can disappear and things."
As his language is limited to the word "jeep,". He possesses high intelligence, so is able to help humans such as Popeye and Olive Oyl solve complex problems. He makes use of a limited form of teleportation: he can disappear from one place and reappear in another, and can walk through and on walls and ceilings. These teleportation powers are said to stem from the Jeep's ability to cross into the fourth dimension.

Will this work on a sport 4x4? It has the AD1, but beyond that I worry the suspension may no be enough for bounce. I noticed my MIL Latitude sits a bit higher, but she also has the ADII.
