Default Max tire I can fit on my 2012 Arctic Edition without any modifications

Hey everyone new to the thread and trying to find definite answers after googling this all day. My stock tires are 235/70/16's and I was thinking of going taller to 75's. I've seen some people say they run 245/75/16's with no issues and other have had rubbing. I feel the stock tires look a little small and I would like to go with more of an aggressive look this time. Any thoughts on this?

245/75/16 will not fit unless you have a lift, or unless you plan on doing some serious metal and plastic trimming to make them work, but 245/70/16 are really the biggest you can go without a lift.

with my experience id do a lot of research....Mud Terrains tend to be oversized anyway compared with All terrains go to a Tyre supplier who has both and look at the sizeing...just for example a 245 70 16 Mud ( Can ) be the same size as a 245 75 16 all Terrain why ! I dont no made loads of mistakes with tyres also remember that some Muds will also had a lot of drag and be very noisy and your MPG will be affected ..
so all depends on what you want out of the Tyre ...looks / mpg / off road ability etc

I have some 245 75 16 maxxis bighorns very noisy and MPG about 17 with a carefull foot on the gas
changed to 245 70 16 Cooper AT3s and MPG went to 22 and its as quiet as a bird and runs so smooth BUT again i made the mistake should have stayed with the same size 245 75 16 as the AT3s are miles smaller ....i run a stock KJ Muds did rub a little i did a little triming under the arch and the only rub was on lock
I used some Kumho Muds few years back and for a MUD tyre they ran very sooth and MPG was not affected much

ask ask think think dont rush into it ..lol hope that helps

I thought I remember a while back someone mentioning that on KKs you can fit larger tires stock than on KJs?

I was actually looking at the Cooper Discovery AT3 but going taller at 235/75/16. Would this be a problem? I definitely do not want to go narrower.

.9" seems feasible in my opinion.

**UPDATE** After reading various posts and doing more research, I ended up getting 245.70/16's. I was unaware that they are a hair taller besides being wider and they fit without any rub at all. Will be posting soon and thanks for the help!

So those size tires fit a stock jeep KK ? I have a stock 2009 and want a bigger Tire, have 225/75 R16 and look like pizza cutters and lot of sliding in the snow. Was thinking of going with the same Tire just 245 75/ R16. With the 70's you have, do you still have room? Thank you.

Even with the 245-70-16 you may still experience some plastic rubbing. Experiences vary.
