well, there are a couple threads to 235/65/17's - your 235/60 will just be slightly smaller (lower profile) 60 vs. 65 is the aspect ratio of the tire.

So what does this mean for the 2011 since it is lifted a bit more than the 2010?? Does this mean the 2011 can have bigger tires with no rub than the 2010??? Anybody that can get an answer for this would be great for 17 inch wheels.

(FROM JEEP WEBSITE)

2010 4x4 FD1
Overall Height - With Roof Rack
65.7"

Ground Clearance - at curb weight - Running Ground Clearance
8.1"

2011 4x4 FD1

Overall Height - With Roof Rack
66.8"

Ground Clearance - at curb weight - Running Ground Clearance
8.2"

I am looking at the same size so I can upgrade my stock 215/60R-17 tires. Not a big fan of the Firestone Affinity tires in bad weather( i.e. winter ). What was Jeep thinking using a tire size that basically only has pasenger car tires available on a 4WD Jeep?

I have concerns about rubbing as well not because of the overall height but rather due to the section width of the tire. It is very close to the stock 215/65R-17 tires height wise but it is wider and I would hate to spend money on tires and have them rub on the suspension or hit in sharp turns.

I haven't seen anyone post they are running this size( lifted or not ). If anyone has this size could you let us know if there are any rub issues. This tire seems to be an ideal replacement tire for those who want a true light truck tire( AS or AT )as it is very close to the OE tire size( 215/65 = 28.00 235/60 = 28.10 ) and won't screw up the speedo much at all( @ 60 MPH on speedo actual speed 215/65 = 60 MPH 235/60 = 59.7 MPH ). MY only concern is the section width possibly being an issue if the OE tires are maxing out the available space( 215/65 = 8.46 235/60 = 9.25 ).

It never even crossed my mind that the tires would be such an issue due to the oddball size used on a 4WD suv. I want to run Firestone Destinatio LE all seasons as they are excellent tires. They come in 235/60R-17 but not in either of the 2 OE sizes.

i run 235/65/17 and have no rubbing whatsoever. even tried them with spacers off,still no rubbing.
so i guess 235/60/17 shouldn't cause any problems.
