    Any recommendations for aggressive tires for a 1.5" lifted Trailhawk? I'd prefer to keep the stock 17" wheels and just use spacers, unless anyone can recommend a wheel with proper backspacing for around the same cost of the spacers. It seems like the 17" wheel is pretty hard to find agressive tires for. I just ordered the lift for my trailhawk and it should be in by the end of the week.

    I've run Falken Wildpeaks in the past on one of my Wranglers and, while they look more like a street tire than an AT, they do preform well off road.

    So 235/65/R17's fit fine on your stock Lattitude with no rubbing? I wonder if I can go even bigger.

    Do you think that 245/65R17's would fit fine on a trailhawk with the Daystar 1.5" lift? If so I may look into getting the Nitto Terra Grappler G2.

    Not quite lol...They rubbed for about 600 miles. They would probably have been fine with a 1" spacer. http://toasterjeep.com/index.php?threads/235-65r17-on-a-stock-latitude.408/
    As far as even bigger, check out the pinch seam mod on the Write Ups thread to see what you will have to do to clear fender liners. :)

    Anyone know if a 245/70/17 tire would fit with the 1.5" lift? I'd be willing to use spacers to make it work if required. This size really opens up the tire options if it will actually fit.

    Hard to say for sure. No two tires made by different manufacturers measure the same. You might be able to find something on the small side but, if it measured up to what it should, that'd be a pretty big tire and I'd have to think you'd have some rubbing issues for sure.

    Well the more I look the more I'm leaning towards 16 inch wheels. Anyone know if the wheels on the G-force website are sold in the US?

    I'm opening the subject about tires again . I'm installing the daystar 1.5 inches lift kit on my limited 4x4. I'm thinking about what to fit in terms of tires. Cooper discoverer 235/65R17 H/T or Yokohama Geolandar 225/70R17 H/TS. Wider against slimmer. Will be using wheel spacers not sure if I should order 25mm or 21mm. The Rims are limited 7Jx17 ET40 5×110. Reading Wayofflife write ups about trimming to make room for his 225/75R16 wheels. I can see the yokohama is close but will they fit?.

    I would recommend 25mm at bare minimum but depending on whether or not your new wheels will have recesses that will clear the lug bolts, you may find it necessary to get 1.25" spacers. Otherwise, you can probably make the Yokohama's fit but you will need to do the pinch seam trim to help prevent rubbing at a turn.

    I went with 16" wheels from momo and 225/70/16 Mud tires. For bigger tires the spacers are a must! I bought the 1" spacers from Renegade ready, but after the fact I wish I would have done what Wayolife did and get the 1.25" spacers that completely bolt on. The spacers RenegadeReady uses, only bolt on at the hub bolt and just use extended lug bolts for the rest. I feel that this just isn't as solid as the product that Wayolife purchased and fear what may happen offroad with these. Eventually I'm going to just replace mine with ones that are similar to what he purchased. With my tires trimming was a must as I had rubbing at about half turn.

    Thanks for the.help found a German company Orange tuning .looks like complete bolt on (not sure) 30 mm TUV approved light weight. Not cheep guess they are good.

    What about looks the 225/70R17 somewhat taller than the 235/65R17. What's your opinion. The daystar demo longitude with 235 looks cool but could be a little higer again my opinion. If you watch the youtube video about the Trailhawk doing the black bear pass there is a good look of the Daystar Jeep Renegade longitude.

    Oldschool - Do you have a link to these? Forgive me for being a noob, but is a better option than any spacers wheels with sufficient offset? If so, do they exist for the renegade trailhawk at 17"? Tirerack.com seems to have stuff, but not sure if I'm reading it all correctly... Thanks, guys.

    Yes sure

    http://www.orange-tuning.de

    They have different size spacers 21mm 25mm 30 mm. Not really a 4x4 shop. They will fit alright. But not sure they are bolt on as mentioned. Maybe not so suitable for offroad. They are produced in Germany and TUV approved and made of Bavarian steel and special alloyed. So as they say, alles ist in Ordnung

    If you get the Coopers you will definitely need 25mm spacers but *probably* won't need to do the trim

    Thanks Vega

    I like what you did with your Jeep and the Cooper 235/65R17. I would have done the same without a lift. Waiting for the spacers to arrive. 30 mm so close to 1.25 inches recommended by you and others on the forum. Did some measurements and think the Yokohama 225/70R17 H/TS will fit and proberly with out Trimming. Going for a little more sidewall height to fill out the wheel well. I Got the Daystar lift kit on and the Renny now looks totally out of proposition with my skinny 215/60R17.
    Anyone done some modifications to the exhaust pipe it looks kind of wrong and some welding have to be done to get the tailpipe back in place. Emagine a Renny with 235/75R17 that would be the perfect setup for a small D... syndrome.

    image.jpeg Looks like Rebel Off-road got the 245/70/17 KO2's to fit with a Daystar lift (not sure yet if they used a 1" spacer or not, probably though). This is exactly what I'm looking at doing if it doesn't rub at all.

    That looks awesome! Stock wheels look much better all black!
