XJ Question: Stock wheel/Compatibility

825 Views 14 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Beezil
This might have fit a little better on the newb forum but here goes:

I'm looking to add a few inches to my '89 Cherokee so I can fit a little more rubber under her. Is there a way to find out what tires my stock wheels are compatible with? I'd like to avoid spending money on new wheels for various reasons (including the financial ones) unless there's an argument for buying bigger/different wheels.

The tires that are on her right now are P205x45R15. I've seen some photos of some of the rides that have been posted on this and other forums and I'm thinking maybe 30s on the 15s if that's doable.

All wisdom and advice is appreciated.

It would be wise to take your own advice.:flipoff2:
I posted here expecting people who have some familiarity with XJs to read the post. If I don't get the info I'm looking for I'll certainly post on the newb forum. I'm not sure if that was meant as advice or a flame... but :flipoff2: back at'cha! :D

Anyone else have some advice before I move this to a different board?
I guess I was a little vague in my original post about that. I'm planning on adding about a 3" lift to the girl. I like how the combination of that kind of a lift and 30-31" knobbys look on the old XJs.

Considering how much the suspension is sagging, it'll be a big boost with that and taller tires.
