Hey guys,
I drive an 07 4x4 limited commander and have had it for a little over a year. I have been reading through this forum for a while and have never posted until now. I am going to be needing some new rubber here soon and have decided that I am going to go with a 245/70/17. I have researched and I know that these will fit without a lift or spacers. The only problem I am having is that I can't find a picture of a non-lifted commander with this tire size. If you guys can help me out here I would appreciate it. Thanks

Forum member My800 is running 245/70R17's on his XK. His XK is the one on the left in the first picture.

thanks a lot man, I appreciate it. If anyone else has anything to add it would be a big help. Also, I am looking into the Nitto terra grapplers. Anyone have any experience with these or a comparable AT or MT that they would recommend? thanks guys

Moved to tire section as that is more fitting to thread discussion.

My friend has those tires on his Nissan Xterra and says he likes them. They seem to be a good all terrain tire.

I don't have a lift installed either, and I went with the 245/75 Firestone Destination A/Ts. I know you were looking for 245/70s, but I haven't noticed any rub at all with my setup.

Airdog 625,
How does the 245/75-17 AT fit in the spare tire well? Do you have the factory hitch?
Have you been off road?
I'm looking at buying some of these and trying to figure the maximum size I can run w/o a lift, and still fit in the spare tire well.
I'm looking at possibly a 265/79R17. That's .2" larger diameter than yours and .6" wider tread.
Think that would fit?
How much clearance do you have with the upper control arm ball joint bolt?

I'm not sure if the 245/75 would fit in the spare tire area or not...I decided to not buy a fifth tire for the spare, so I still have a stock Fortera in there. I have been offroading, but since I don't have a lift, I have stuck to pretty moderate terrain so far. I have a couple pictures in my profile album of some of the terrain I've driven. The tires have been excellent in all situations so far, in my opinion, but I don't have much to compare them to as this is the first set of All-Terrain tires I've had on any vehicle.

As far as size goes...I think the 245/75 is pretty much the maximum without a lift and/or spacers. You might be alright with the extra diameter, but the extra .6" width will most likely catch the infamous bolt. If not, it will be uncomfortably close, in my opinion. Check out the photo I attached to see the clearance I have with the 245/75s...its maybe a half inch or so...

Ok guys...forteras have 69k on them (never rotated BTW) so need new tires bad. I wanna keep my stock wheels

tire on the left comes in 245/70-17 so it would be easy to install no mods
tire on the right i can get in 265/70-17 which im leaning toward but would require the necessary susp upgrades. i want some input/opinions. i no most of you are gonna say go with the lift and bigger tires and you guys have almost convinced me, but bear in mind i live in SE Missouri its very flat land with low elevation and with little snow etc so i def want a mud terrain. Tell me what u think!!
