Hmm... so the stock tires aren't great. I'm relatively young (early twenties) and this is the first car I've bought so I don't have a lot of experience with buying tires but I know we've never put them on any of our cars; we've only ever stuck with Yokohama or Michelin. I certainly am a newbie to all things Jeep and I was looking at a Wrangler until I found and fell in love with my Renegade TH.

I know the tires aren't terrible, they have served me well in rainy conditions and on bumpy roads but I want to take my Jeep off-road and reading all about lifts, wheel spacers, and new tires is making my head spin. I called the shop who does all the lifts for my local dealership today and inquired about lift kits for the TH, he said that he didn't know if it would be possible to do much of a lift on the car, even when they ARE released. But he did seem to gather what I was going for and told me new tires would achieve a more rugged, "Jeep" look. I have red all the charts and specs on this forum and some of my questions have been answered, but I just wanted to clarify everything.

I am going for a more obvious off-road look for the vehicle and (if possible) tires that are a smidgen bigger. I looked over the chart and the whole questionable warranty/negative vehicle impact sort of scared me away. I plan to take it off-road through mud, sand, gravel, and dirt. I do not plan to rock crawl I would prefer not to change out the wheels since I really like the 17" and the black/silver combo. I am really new to all this stuff so please bear with me... I understood about tire rub and all that; are wheel spacers really that detrimental? Obviously I don't want to put 35" monsters on there but maybe 29" or 30". If it is too much of a hassle to get the larger tires, I will be happy to go with the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S 225/65/R17. Does anybody know what they used when they tested it off-road during the Easter Jeep Safari or in their TH Desert Hawk concept?

They seem to fit without rubbing. No major change in road noise of ride quality.

Do you think a Falken in 225/65/17 will work on a TH?

Falken Wilpeak does not make a 225/65/17, unless you have seen some information that is not on their website?

I spent 2 weeks on Sardinia trails with Falken Wildpeaks (215/60/17) at 2 bars pressure and they're pretty good, better than stocks tires
