2009 Overland R18 Question

Does anyone know what the factory tire was in 2009?

I have these on my Jeep, and bought the car used in January. I have 87k miles on the vehicle, and the tires may need to be replaced soon. I want to explore larger tires but I didn't see anything in the Help thread regarding 18s.

The size of the tire is P245 60 R18. I don't know if there are lifts, but I doubt it. Wouldn't know how to check. I'm assuming it's all factory suspension.


Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

I have running Michelin's LTXs since my first replacement set in 07 and have been very happy.

That's a tire I'm looking at. Did you see a significant drop in MPG? Not that the Jeep is good MPG in the first place but these tires have a lot of tread. They look sweet though.

I do not remember any major change in mileage, but I put the first set on in 07 and that is too long ago for an old guy to remember. I do run then on the sand of North Carolina's Outer Banks with no problems.
