I only did a quick search but it seems like there aren't very many A/T tires that come in that size, looks like 225/70r16 has more choices but wouldn't solve his issue.

I like the 235's on the jeep, but 215's would be better in the snow and slush, as the 235's would probably have that plow effect. He could even go with 235/60R16 if he liked the width

I'm the parts manager at Baxter Jeep in Bellevue, NE. I had 215/70R16, 225/70R16 AND 235/70R16 on hand to try out. In my opinion, the P225/70R16 looked the most "normal" on it like that's what they should come with from the factory. The 235's are the largest that didn't hit the strut top or strut body and start to look like you have an oversized tire on it.
I live on a mountain dirt road where I often have to use snow chains. My latitude came with 215/60R17 but when I looked on thule chain web sight there are none in that size would you suggest 225/70R17 so I still have clearance for 10mm or 12mm chains? Any advise would be greatly appreciated. I don't have the trailhawk model wondering if I should have went that route.

Glad I found this post , just picked up my latitude. But the stock tires don't look great. It came with the 215 60 r17.
I am also looking at new black wheels and was thinking of going to a 16" wheel to give the look of more rubber , anyone have an opinion whether that's a good idea or not? I was just thinking it would look alittle more off road.

your fuel economy dropped from 29 to 22, from just the tires? Does width or diameter play the most important role because I am torn between getting 225/75/r16 or 235/70/r16

Looks awesome! I'm in the market for new tires for my 1.4L Renegade and want to put this same size tire on (225/70/16). What affect have the tires had on your fuel economy? I know it will show 5.2% less miles to begin with because of the larger diameter, but wondering if there is much of an affect beyond that?

For whatever reason, my 2.4L Rene'Lat has never gotten the incredible mileage I see others brag about. It might be the way I drive it... Might be because roughly 98% of my driving is on city streets between 25mph and 40mph.

Anyways... Even before I started tossing mods and equipment on it, I barely averaged 22mpg... I've had two batches of software updates from the dealer, neither really change the mpg's at all.

Currently I average between 18.8 and 22mpg.

On Sunday's when I drive out to mom's house, which is pretty much all expressway (55/65mph), by the time I get off at her exit my mpg's are up to 25mpg. And then when I come home, and get off at my own exit, I'm up to 29mpg.

By the time I get to work on Monday morning I'm back down to 22mpg. By the time I get home from work Monday evening I'm usually back down to 19.1mpg. By Friday I'm back down to 18.8mpg.

Of course, compared to the V8 Durango I had before my Rene' I can't complain,
