Hi from Australia.
2014 Cherokee are just being released this week in Australia, can any of you good people advise of any good All Terrain Tyres unfortunately the TH has been released here with Yokohama Geolander SUV
245/65R17 which are basically highway tyres.
Using the original 17" TH rims what is the maximum tyre size people have been able to use with out any clearance/rubbing issues.
ie does a BF Goodrich AT 265/65 D697 fit ?
Any advise would be greatfull as their is absolutely no local knowledge at present.
Thanks,
Scully !!

@Scully ... seems like the 245/70/17 are the largest so far on stock that's on the Jeep Cherokee Trail Carver.

Thanks dawhites, when you say stock is that Jeep stock that is listed for the TH from Jeep, or tyre dealer stock availability.
Cheers.

Hi Scully
I can recommend Yokahama Geolandar AT/S. Good grip on and off road and quiet at highway speeds.

Hi,

are you sure the offset is 31 for the 17x7.5 wheels?

They just installed winter wheels on mine with an offset of 42mm...

You should be fine with either one. Just be careful with the aspect ratio of the tires for the 18's. the bolt pattern for the trailhawk Wheel is 5x110 offset of +42.
The dealer just installed 17x7, 5x110 and 42 offset on my Trailhawk.
I am going to return them because I want 17x7.5 instead (like they should be).
What is the offset for the 17x7.5 of the original wheels? (I need to find a set on my own now).
Thanks!

Dumb question? What is "offset"? I found some OEM wheels off of a Trailhawk and want to install them on my Limited. Will I have issues?

Yeah the spare tires have always been smaller (I didn't even check if it's a 245x65R17).
But on the door the sticker specifically says 17x7.5

I am going to get the American Eagle MSR 013 black now (you can find it on google) which is 17x7.5 offset 38.
Too bad because I loved the look of the Touren TR9 in matte black but they are 17x7 and the tires look too squeezed in!

I believe the offset on the original wheels is 42, so any offset in the range 35 to 42 is going to be ok.

Correct me if I am wrong.

New "Fast" rims installed today. 18" x 7.5 with Toyo Winter Tires (225 60-18). I had the tires from my last vehicle and tried to sell them with steel rims, but no takers. The Jeep dealer found me these rims for a good price and took the tires off the steel rims and put them on the new ones, $800 total. They couldn't install them until next week, but since we have 4 - 5 days of snow forecast, my wife installed them for me. No, she didn't have them installed, she jacked up each corner, got out impact and tools and installed them all. Very Special Lady. FYI-- I had a severe back injury in June and have had 10 procedures since then and definitely couldn't change them myself.
