Hello. I'm looking to buy some better tires for the Trailhawk. Will 225/65R17, All-Terrain T/A KO2's fit? I also have some Renegade Ready 1" Spacers on the way.


TIA

Uhh, where are you seeing such a size. There's a 225 75 16, a 235 70 16 and a 235 80 117. No 225 65 17 that I can see at tirerack or BFG's page for the tire.

There's a number of people experimenting with other tires, jury is still out on what all fits well or good enough. Odds are for anything offorad, you are going to need at least new wheels (16"), if not wheels and a spacer.

I ordered some Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S 225/65/R17's from Belle Tire today. They told me they'd fit.

They ship from Indiana, so it'll be a few days. I'll try to find this thread after they're installed and report back.

this size I never try.. with original wheels they can come... but with spacers I think they rubber a little bit during turning....

Juan- I don't know. I can't find a straight answer on if the G-Force kit adds an inch to a Trailhawk or just replaces the factory lift which would give you a net increase of <1/4". If the latter is true, probably not.

Tirerack had that size listed then removed it, and I cant find the size on the BFG website so I am not 100% convinced they exist. I like the geos, and I am anxious to see if yours fit. You have a trailhawk correct?
That's correct, I have a Trailhawk. They said the tires may come in today (Fri) or it could be Mon or Tue. As soon as they're on I'll post pics and tell you how they fit.

I can't wait to see how they fit. I have the trailhawk also and I thought about getting the same tires but the 16." Did you get new wheels also or are you going to reuse the stock? :laugh:

I'm sticking with the stock wheels.

Still waiting on my tires. Hopefully in the next couple of days, when I'm off work.

Will 225/70/16 fit on my latitude?
If my research is correct, the 225/70/R16's would be roughly 1/3 of an inch wider and about 1 1/2 inches taller than the 215/65/R16's. So it'll depend on how much extra room you have in the wheel wells. I'd suggest checking with a tire store for an expert opinion.
