What Hits, What Fits

Posted in How To: Wheels Tires on March 1, 2011

In December of 2005, we brought you a first-of-its-kind chart of what tires you can fit on your Jeep, no matter what model your Jeep might be. Since most of you only had eyes for the chart itself and not so much for the text accompanying it, we decided to bring you a new and improved updated tire fitment guide.

How accurate these numbers are will depend on how well-used your Jeep is. If your Jeep has been used for nothing but hauling unabridged dictionaries and your springs are sagging, you might want to err on the smaller side. If your Jeep is driven by Grandma to church, you can probably ride the high side of the chart for the segment you fit into.

After much studying and nights burning the midnight oil, we added some new information and modified some of the info that we had on there already, all to bring you the new and improved Jp magazine Tire Fitment Guide.
