I can vouch for the cooper A/T3. I had the 235/65/17 size on my '14 cherokee. They are very quiet on the road, do well in the bad weather, and are pretty good off road.

In town driving observations after putting them on, noticed slightly more road noise and a slight more squish in steering. Dealer aired them to 37 psi or so. Will run them this way for a while and see.

Yep, stock. Gonna drive on them a while and then inspect for rubs. If there is any, I either haven't noticed or haven't got enough wheel travel for it to happen.

My Duratracs aren't any noisier than the firestones were. The only time this is not true is between 37 and 40 mph when you can kind of hear them... with the radio and a/c off... if you listen really hard... before and after that I cannot even tell that I don't have stock wheels.

Also, I got $130 per tire from Big O. My tires had only lost 1/32 even after driving to Michigan and back twice... something like 15k on them...

I went with the KO2's there's no real hype to them in my opinion they just work really well. I'm a more spirited driver and never felt my choice of going with the KO2 was wrong. I went with 265/65/17 and they are not noisy at all and offer up to me the same comfort at the OE tires.

Yep, same, audible noise in the 30-40 mph range that the OE Firestone's didn't have. At 60+ I don't hear anything with the GG AT2 either.

Will that fit on a 2014 sport? No rubbbing issues or anything?

Not even a hint of rubbing and the spare fit fine still with some room around the diameter. They are quiet and smooth on the highway, I don't think there's a discernible impact to MPG after putting 3% back in manually, and if it is lower MPG is in the single-digits %. A slightly taller spare would fit, it's a wider spare that seems to be the problem (they say 265/65 is too wide to fit the spare and have the compartment close all the way?) Almost wish I had tried the 255/70!

All of the tire sizes I've seen referenced for the KL:

255/75R17 - 32.1"
235/80R17 - 31.8"
265/70R17 - 31.6"
245/75R17 - 31.6"
255/70R17 - 31.1"
245/70R17 - 30.6"
265/65R17 - 30.6"
275/60R17 - 30.0"
245/65R17 - 29.5" - Stock TH
225/65R17 - 28.5" - Non-TH
