Yes they are stiffer and a little firmer ride but the suspension foes a good job making up for it.

245/75 = 31.5
265/70 = 31.6
255/75 = 32.1


So for a lifted sport I could fit 265/70r17?

I like your tires and I can see you have a 15 TH is it worth the money getting them even that stock tires are still good

TIL I will eventually be giving RRO more money. A new lift kit from them with increased travel and lift? Now I wonder if I can add HazzardSky's to the lift as well.

The 10ply are very stiff tires and I was told by my local tire shop they wouldn't likely wear properly because the Cherokee isn't heavy enough.

I have been running heavy tires on jeeps for years because I have had sidewalls torn out on lighter tires. I was stranded in a remote area of northern Utah because I damaged a second tire before I was able to get the first one replaced. I have not had the problem since I started using the heavier tires. I am undecided on the tires for this jeep as it will be primarily my wife's. I doubt we will get into much more than dirt roads that are not well maintained. Decisions, decisions. I have never had any issues with tires wearing improperly on a light vehicle, they just need proper inflation. Acceleration and mileage certainly do suffer though, which is why I am undecided.

Thanks @David_Baker for your unnecessary smart *** reply. I posted my experience and you guys seem to find due diligence to give me guilt and blasphemy for trying something new. Way to go. Reminds me why I left this forum in the first place.

Don't take this personally, but if you don't understand how a spring spacer lift works and you 'installed' one that gave you no lift, then yes, you had better wait until an official kit is released and then pay someone to fit it.



Oh wait, 2 kits have already been released and both based on the Aussie spacer lift. Oh and hundreds and hundreds of happy KL owners have fitted them or had them fitted for them.



Mine with the 1 in larger diameter tyres now sits just shy of 2 in above stock.



Oh and post 917 of that same thread is mine before and after the lift.

And we told you that it's unlikely that you didn't see a change in ride height and that whatever company you went through is wrong. As people say, pictures or it didn't happen.

Nothing smart *** about my reply, it is purely factual. You yourself stated you put spacers above and below the shocks.

Like I said the first time and I will say it again; if you gained no lift from it you did it wrong. Maybe the company you took it to was right and what you did will not give any lift.

If you would like to post some pics of what you did there will be many on here willing to assist, including me.

Look at how your words came across before you complain about how someone else's words come across...
