Am I the only person that's interested in lighter wheels and street/highway performance tires? Has anyone looked into that sort of thing?
Right now I am doing exactly that, looking for that sort of tire, no spacers, on stock Latitude wheels, 4x4, 1.4. Any suggestions?

I am planning on getting a 1.4T Manual Latitude as a small commuter, mostly highway. I like the look of the 225/70-16 Cooper Discovery A/T3 on the factory wheels, but I have had really **** luck with Michelin LTX M/S 2 tires. They look less aggressive than the Coopers and they are available in both 225/70-16 and 235/70-16 sizes. Considering the Cooper's fit, is there low risk that the Michelin's will fit too???
hi, i'm wondering how that tire set-up worked out for you. I am trying to find a similar tire for my Latitude, 4x4, 1.4, with no spacers or lift. Suggestons?

I just bought a 2019 renegade sport, 4x4. 265/60R17. I want bigger tires in an all terrain. Is this possible without a lift? Obviously I dont want rubbing. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to the forum, you will find a lot of great info here. Is the 265/60/17 size tires in your post accurate? The standard size that comes on the Sport is a 215/60/17. I have never heard of anyone having a 265 size on a Renegade. You can go to a 225/65/17 on any 4x4 model without any lift or mods required without any rubbing, that size is very popular among Renegade owners. BFG KO'2, Yokohama G015 (not as aggressive) plus others are available in that size. Good luck with your choice, we like pictures.

Wow. 215 is correct. Thanks for catching that, and thanks for the info!

265/65/17 is a great lump of a tyre size but be careful where you read it. :unsure::unsure::unsure:

How or where did you ever think that such a massive tyre was associated with your Renegade?

Call out for a picture of the tyre size and suddenly they understand the error of their way. Too much fake news IMHO.

thanks for the response. Basically I’m asking questions for just this reason, I’m wanting to be sure what will work. I just got off the phone with discount tire and they said they think I’d be better with a 225/60/17. They recommend the falken A/T. Thoughts? And does you think a 225/65/17 would be too big? Thanks

The 225/65/17 will fit fine without any problems. Some tire dealers don't like to sell tires other than the original size or what they normally have in stock. When I went to a local tire shop to get larger tires they would sell them to me but would not install them. Do some searches on tire sizes and you will see that the 225 is very popular.

The Falken A/T3W is a great tire. It comes in a 215/65/17 which would still be fine although a little narrower. The 65 will give a taller tire, not a lot but taller.

Thanks. I really want to go with the 225/65/17 if it’ll fit. The falken makes that size I believe, and is relatively cheap.

The Falken Wildpeak A/T does come in a 225/65/17 plus others, the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W (a/t all weather, more expensive) come in a 215/65/17, not a 225/65/17.

There is an old saying, "Buy cheap, buy twice".

£100 per tyre I have just paid to have the Yokohama Geolander SUV 215s supplied, balanced and fitted to the rear. They are basically a hybrid of road and semi soft off road (my off road is soft sand for launching and recovering a boat)

I also had the same tyres fitted around 25k miles ago to the front and they are still well within legal limits and no where near the tread low limit bar.

Initially my thoughts were "WTF, thats an expensive tyre" but experience and mileage have relieved that issue. IMHO pay the big bucks for peace of mind and get more than a budget tyre. (y)(y)(y)

thanks. Ya I am totally fine paying money for quality. Did you get them in the 215/60/r17 that is the standard size the sport comes with? If so, post a pic here please. I’d like to see how they look. Thanks again

Failing that I will get a pic tomorrow as the car needs a clean as do the wheels :D:D:D
