Hi Everyone,

I just got Yokohama Geolander ATS 235 70 16 tires installed on my lifted Latitude. You can check out my other posts on the lift and spacers. The tires are a 29.2" diameter versus the 27" stock tire, which effectively added another inch, bringing the ground clearance to around 10.5" take a look let me know what you think. Cheers

Wow man that looks awesome!!!! Can't wait too do that too mine! I have the same rims on mine.. I also have the 6spd. Can you get a bigger tire on that rim without the lift? My only complaint about the renny is those tiny tires.

If you don't mind my asking...what does a set of 4 of those tires set you back? Usually I am not a big fan of green but that looks AWESOME!

With an alignment I ended up spending about 750 installed. The Yoko's are about 160 a tire

It'd be really tight without the lift. The other easy item I put on are the RENEGADE READY wheel spacers. They fit right in the hub and give more steering clearance. I have a post about them in this forum. Good luck!

Very nice. My latitude is brand new and I have the 18" rims (225/55R18) at 27.7" diameter so already i'm only .5" lower than a Trailhawk (which I would have gotten if it came with the manual transmission) and I'd like to do something like this someday. (need the skid plate too and until then I'm not pushing too hard to need the higher clearance) I would have thought 1.5" lift to be a little much but that looks great.

Answering the above can you get the larger tire without the lift and spacer I'd say you could probably get up to 28" diameter but no larger. As is, I have about 1/2" clearance on a hard turn which is about a close as I'd feel comfortable with.

Yeah I don't reccomend anything larger until at least making the lateral clearance a little better. The hub spacers would help. but honestly if you want the Jeep to accept the biggest tires possible, which I think it needs for back roading get the vertical lift as well. get the spindle "out and up" and any good tire shop will be honest about tire set you can realistically fit. Good luck and have fun!
