What types of tires do you buy for the Commander? I have heard that tirerack is the best place, is this correct?
One more thing. Where's the best place for them to mount the tires?

Around here, Discount Tire is the "bestest for the leastest"! In fact, Tire Rack is local and that's where DT gets most of it's tires. DT is usually cheaper that TR at the retail level.

Here is what I went with on my Commander.The 255s are a nice upgrade with 0 rub issues. I bought them from treadepot.com. So far they have been by far the best tires I have ever bought. I bought another set for my Superduty King Ranch.

I have the same tires on my Commander in the 245/70R17 black letter variety. I also run the SilentArmor tires on my Cherokee... amazing in snow and mud and rain and dry pavement... just overall an amazing tire.

Are you guys taking your Jeeps in to have the tire size changed in starscan, or just living with inaccurate speedometers?
Starscan doesn't really give too much of a selection of tires. I have ran my Commander through several of the "your speed is" signs (we have them permanantly mounted at major intersections in my town now). The small difference in tire circumference isn't causing a noticable difference in the speedometer reading.

I have 255/70R17 Bridgestone A/T Dueler REVOs. I have no rubbing issues, they sound good on the highway and I haven't had any traction issues on or off road. Pics are over in the pic area.

edited to correct 60s to 70s.

Does that tire size fit as a spare?
