225/75R17

I have searched this forum diligently to try and answer my questions regarding tire options and issues other members have experienced. My lift and wheel spacers are on their way and I am considering running Hankook Dynapro's in a 225/75R17's on stock rims. Does anyone have experience with this size tire? If not, I guess I'll be the guinney pig, lol

Thanks in advance!

Ah, this set up will make u rub even with the lift.
I have a buddy that has a 265/70r17 with a lift and rubs like crazy u need at least a 65 to clear the wheel well.
On mine I have 235/60r17 and I have enough clearance to turn and clearance all around, see attached pics mine is the burgundy Jeep and my buddy's is the Gray one he has also done the pinch weld mod and cut the struts safety piece (the lip at the bottom close to the wheel)
Looks nice but it still rubs the wheel

alacran, thank you for the response. I appreciate the info. I'm wanting to go with taller tire not necessarily wider, to hopefully minimize rubbing, hence I'm looking at the 225's with a 75% aspect ratio. If all else, I'll go with the Yoko Geolander in a 225/70

Those 265's look awesome, btw!! But definitely not practical for my needs

Just be careful go to the manufacturers web site and type in theirs tire spec's and it should give u the total size if the tire by that I mean the total inches around I think but not sure but the wheel well on the Patriots might measure 30" or 30.25" any one can help out on this size so u want clearance cuz the 70's might be pushing it.

Also my tires are 235/60r17 Cooper Discoverer A/T3

I also wanted to get the Geolanders but was better convince with the Cooper reviews. Give me some time and I will post a pic of the tire and the clearance I got.

This is what it looks like I have about a 1" to 1.5" clearance before I have to modify and do a pinch weld mod
This the front and the back you might get away with a 65 but pushing it with a 70 you pitting in a 17" wheel right!!! Forgot to ask.. lol

Yes, I am going to be running 17" wheels. I do plan on doing the pinch weld mod.

That's not how tire sizing work. The side wall (aspect ratio) is a percentage of the the width of the tire.

A 265/70r17 tire is 31.6"

A 225/75r17 tire is 30.3"

Higher aspect ratio, but smaller diameter tire.

Crave,
I think you and I are on the same page. From what I've been gathering, most people running 'over-sized' tires are having major issues with rubbing, due to the extra width, not so much the height. I could be wrong though. (Yes, I know the height has alot to do with it too)
I'll have a set installed in the next couple of weeks and provide feedback for everyone.
Cheers

When in doubt, give it more gas. It may not solve the problem, but it will end the aticipation.
