Time for New Tires

I've got 49K miles on my stock Forteras, and will need to replace in teh next 4-5K miles. Like most of you want to upsize a bit, but wont be doing anything other than Robby's 1/2" leveling spacer.

I'd like to go 265 65's but based on what I have read here it will be too wide, so am looking at a 255 65 or 255 70.

The tire I am looking at is Hankook DynaPro ATM RF10. I know you guys are guru's I'm just a dumb grunt with this stuff. Thanks!

Steve

I just ordered a set of these today, so hoping they'll be good. I Googled them and a lot of people have posted about them on other vehicle forums similar to this one and have had good reviews. So I'm confident I'm going to like what I'm getting. I went with the 265/70/17... but am prepared to do some banging on a pinch weld if necessary.

Regarding the tire sizes you are considering, here's a copy of part of the guideline that 07JeepXK put together as a sticky. You will want to pick a tire size in the first list unless you add a 2 inch lift.

Stock Jeep Commanders or Commanders using the 1/4" leveling spacer can fit the following tire sizes WITHOUT wheel spacers and no rubbing:

245/65R17 (Stock Tire Size)
245/70R17
245/75R17 BFGoodrich All Terrians (might have minor rubbing)
255/65R17


Jeep Commanders ranging from the 2" spacer lifts to the 3.5 Rock Krawler kit can fit the following tires WITHOUT wheel spacers and no rubbing:

245/65R17 (Stock Tire Size)
245/70R17
245/75R17
255/65R17
255/70R17

yea, i didn't think 255/70's would fit on your setup. I've heard nothing but good things about those tires, though. you should do fine w/them (just might need to get a smaller size).

I bought a set of the Hankooks from the local Discount Tire this past weekend with a $100 rebate (Discount Tire promo) and am looking to get them installed next Monday. I could probably have gotten another 3K out of the stock tires, but the promo offsets that nicely. Even though I'm only a 4x2 I'm often on forest service roads and in pastures and I think these will do me good.

Can't comment on upsizing because I have not really considered it - I went with the stock size. Just wanted to join the Hankook Dynapro ATM RF10 backslapping party. :-)

Great choice for an excellent tire $ for $. As for size, GPinthemitten has it straight. For such a big vehicle Jeep certainly didn't leave much room for bigger tires with out some modification.

Bulldog9, Don't get the 255/70's if you are not doing a lift. Of the two you mentioned, I recommend the 255/65/17's.

I hope your lifted because that tire size definately wont fit without a 2 inch spacer lift.
