Wheel offset question

Does anyone know the difference in offset from the latitude wheels to the TH wheels? Thank you!

Hi there and Welcome to the forum !

I'm only going from memory here because those numbers aren't easy to find, so here goes...
TH : +31mm
Non TH : +41mm

Accepted offset range on most tire sites I've looked at, for TH and non TH : +30 to +45mm.

Some of our members have gone to spacers to eliminate tires rubbing against the suspension after installing oversized tires... but unless you are oversizing on the tires, any wheel in the offset range is fine (+30 to +45mm).

I have an MFC lift on order, although back ordered right now. As well as TH trailing arms which have arrived. I would like to put 265/65/17 Nitto Terra's on but fear rubbing on the front strut.. are there any sources for spacers?

I just found a thread where member @Toecutter says he's running with that size tire as well, so perhaps he'll chime in.

I also read that spacers may actually promote tire rubbing up front, depending on the tires you have, so I'd wait to hear from those who run these tires before even looking at spacers.

Source : Anyone running 255/65-17 tires on Trailhawk?

there is another member that sells a comparable lift kit with the same materials for significantly less that will have a lower wait time, you may want to explore your options a bit.

Just FYI, 265 tires will not fit on the Latitude rims. Latitude rims are 17x7 and the smallest size you can use on a 265 tire is 17x7.5. The TH are 17x7.5, so you need to upgrade your rims to run that big of a tire. So to sum up, TH rims are bigger and have a smaller offset, 31 verses 41, to move them away from the strut. An option would be 245/70 which will fit on your rim.

I have 265/65-17 BFG KO2 tires on a Trailhawk, stock wheels, Hazard Sky lift, no spacers. I read on the Hazard Sky website that this tire in this size will fit without rubbing so I took their word for it. I haven't heard anything rubbing and to be honest I haven't verified for myself by looking for scuff marks. I'm afraid I can't comment about the Nitto tires since they might be different dimensions than the BFGs even though they're marked as same size. I know that BFG KO2s seem to run on the small side.

Hey there,
Yep those will fit no problems. Tires are an exact match for your trim (height and width) and the wheels are a good match for them, and for the Cherokee (I don't know all specs for those wheels but TireRack seems to have matched them for your KL). Acceptable rim width range for those tires is 6" to 8" and the wheels are 7.5".

Just know that "LT" rated tires and reinforced compared to "P" tires, so you may find them a little stiff. And noisy...
