Just bought a set of Rubi Rims for my 01 XJ Very Happy Just curious what the biggest size tire I can get without having to lift or do any trimming now. Just bought her, still has factory warranty and I cant afford to lose that since im still a poor college student. I was hoping to be able to fit a 235/70/16 bfg a/t ko on there. But i really like the way the goodyear MT/R's look. The smallest size they make is a 225/75/16. Would that fit on my cherokee, without having to do any modifications. Also, I am not going to be doing any offroading for a few years.

Those wheels are a little wide for a 225/75R16. GY recommends a 6"-7" wide wheel for those tires. The Moabs are 16x8. Not to say they won't work...but that's a really small tire for those wheels.

The 255/70R16 is not much taller (0.8") but a bit wider (section width 10.2" vs. 8.7" for the 225s) and would fit the wheel better.
