Replacement Tire Data (All in one)

Today's research data after reading many, many threads on replacement tires. Topics include diameter deltas wrt T-case issues. I'm in the market after my GY wear issue... I thought I'd share what I collected today.

Avoid side wear issues...BE SURE TO SET ALIGNMENT CAMBER DOWN TO -0.125 to -0.25 range (per jim383)
STOCK RIM SIZE = Front 9.0, Rear 10.0 (some tires below are outside of this spec)

Question: anybody have issues with rubbing on wider sizes on OE suspension, if so, what model?
Question: any reason to be concerned with buying tires outside of manufacture's rim width specs?

I learned that not all brands are available in OE and/or larger sizes.

Enjoy...

Nice job compiling the specs on the various tires for stock sizes as well as the 275/40, 315/35 combo many end up going with. I currently have the Nitto 420s. No issues with t-case with over 20k miles on the tires. I want the Motivos before winter as the 420s are not good at all in snow and tread getting low by then. Motivos have more of a difference in diameter, almost a quarter inch. The biggest problem as I see it, is there is no traceable source for the often quoted allowable 3% value between fronts and rears. That number allows for quite a difference in circumference. Searching the chat sessions I found an exchange(I posted it in my thread) with an SRT engineer and a couple of forum members that did not lend any support that this is a valid acceptable tolerance. So we really do not know how much difference is acceptable before having possible transfer case problems.

rickrad,
Thanks. I did see your post and noted the absence of any official position made by Chrysler/Jeep. Today I sent a question off to the guys at http://www.wkjeeps.com/wk_srt8.htm to see if they have anything semi-official on the topic. I expect not. I didn't see anything in the WK TSBs they have on that site either. Looking at the Motivos compared to your 420s, the diameter percentages (delta of 0.0018 between the models) for front/back are very close to each other and in theory you shouldn't have issue or concern; and still under 1% front/back diameter difference. It would be good to hear something official though to be sure.

Did I see in your thread that you had side tire wear issues? (can't recall if that was you or not) If so, did you make the recommended camber adjustments? Did the adjustment work? If not you, I apologize, I must have read a thousand posts today in this forum topic alone.

The big thing that I'd like to understand is when going to the larger 275/40R20-315/35R20 size pairings, do people have issues with the additional width not "fitting" or rubbing in any way? (OE suspension)

Also, has ANYBODY heard of T-case issues in going to the larger sizes assuming they maintain the properly paired size, same tread front/back, etc. (275/40R20 & 315/35R20)

And has anybody experienced issues with the dealership when showing up with non-OE sizes?

I'm still well within my 5yr/100K powertrain warranty and I don't want to put myself into a corner I can't get out of if I do have a problem. I'm really leaning toward the 420s only because of the OE size availability, but it would be nice to feel confident with the larger sizes and model varieties as well.

My need: daily-driver for local commutes; not a track guy; want the tire to grab when I stand on it; would like reasonable tire life; no more stupid tire separation! Yes, I know this is a lot to ask for.

Thanks for any additional data others can provide!! Also, any feedback on:

Question: anybody have issues with rubbing on wider sizes on OE suspension, if so, what model?
Question: any reason to be concerned with buying tires outside of the tire manufacture's rim width specs? [rear rims being 10 inches and some tires spec'd min rim @ 10.5, data below...]

From everything I have read, no issues with rubbing on the stock jeep. I think a few have had minor issues on lowered ones. I too asked the question about rim size given the width of the 315/35 tires on the rear. Many have used those on the 10 inch rims so yes it will work. I think the Contis may be the widest or the Atturos. Whether it looks weird or compromises handling/stability I cant answer but would like to know myself.

Are there any happy Motivo customers out there? Any feedback or gory details from them?

Pretty new tire...The reviews I have read have been very good. I may be the first here to have them on an SRT8 Jeep. There are things I dont like about the DWS, Toyos, and the Atturos I would not even consider. Not going the ultra cheap route here. Still want to be sure that its not too big a difference on the Motivos. I calculated revs per mile and its a difference of 6 between front and rear tires.

Can you update the list to include the Bridgestone 275/315 combo? I have been rocking them for about a year and love them. I suspect rubbing on stock suspension components, but upgraded to the Bwoody end links. I actually had to put the stock end link back on the drivers side, and the Bwoody on the passenger side. ( I have a thread about this).

The Bridgestones friggin' rock on wet roads. I was cruising back from MI to VA a few weeks back and had torrential downpours from DC to Richmond. It was by far the heaviest rains I have ever driven the Jeep in. I was cruising at 80 MPH hitting pools of water with reckless abandon, and only a slight wheel jerk in the deepest of pooling spots.

Not to mention, these are runflats with a decent ride. Obviously, not as good of a ride as a non-runflat tire, but WAY better than the crapyears.

Downside: $$$$$

Thanks for the input! What specific Bridgestone model are referring to? Will do... I'll update my numbers and get them into the original post soon. Thanks!


OTHERS: what other size combos other than stock sizes and 275/315 combo have folks used without issue. I noted a couple threads with some using a combo with higher sidewall values with the hopes to "protect" the wheels a bit more. I'd like to confirm these sizes are indeed available across the different brands. Thanks for your input... I'll keep the original post up to date with all the data in single location.

I think the larger aspect ratios some are going with are more for looks...fill out the wheel well a bit. Doubt its going to offer anymore protection from wheel rake. I do know the Toyos are one brand that has this available...45 fronts 40 rears and maybe also 50 and 45. I don't think in general most brands offer these sizes that will work with our jeeps.
