Hello everyone!

I've checked the forums and read several threads, but can't seem to find an answer...

I need help with a question regarding new tires for my stock '08 Commander Overland w/18" wheels. I'd like to go bigger than the OEM 245/60R18's but I don't know how much bigger I can go w/out making any mods.
I really like the Toyo Open Country A/T II and the Nitto Terra Grapplers, but neither has my OEM size?

Are there any alternate sizes that will work?

Did some more checking and hoping either 255/55R 18's or 255/60R 18's will work...

Thanks for the help!

JohnW

Discount Tire,

I think the 275/55R18 would have some clearance issues in the XK fender well without a spacer.

Definitely.

New Here? Read this Thread for FAQ's on Tires, Lifts and Spacers!
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

255/60r18 is the same height as 255/65r17

Sorry for the confusion. The plus zero sizes we list aren't necessarily for the factory wheels. In this case, you would want a lower offset and wider wheel to accommodate the 275/55R-18 size.

@JohnW - 255/60R-18's should work on your application without issue.

New here and not sure I can piggy back off this posted but my question is similar. Mine is a 2008 Limited with 18" rims and a 2.5" lift. Will 275/70/18 tires fit with 1.5 spacers?

My previous post addresses this

Jeep Commanders ranging from the 2" spacer lifts to the 3.5 inch Rock Krawler kit can fit the following tires WITH wheel spacers but will cause minor rubbing: (MINOR TRIMMING OF THE REAR PLASTIC FENDER WELL AND BENDING OVER OF THE PINCH WELD REQUIRED)


255/75R17
265/65R17
265/70R17


http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/tirecalc.php?tires=275-70r18-265-70r17

275/70r18 is a 33"+ tall tire and nearly 11" wide. You would need a modified OME lift or superlift to fit that. Or some serious trimming.

275/65r18 is probably doable on that lift, although I would look @ 265/65r18

2006 jeep commander with a 3.5" front lift kit going from 17" to 18" wheels, what should be the max size tires for the 18" I can use on my commander?
