I was so excited for this post. Alas, all 2nd gen examples. Anyone with first Generation (up to 2018) found a large size beefy tire that works?
I was just coming to post!
2014 with Falken Wildpeak 225/65/R17, no lift. Rubbed a tiny bit on the rear, but nothing a little trim didn't fix. Had them on almost a week now, with no issues.

Hi,

for the request of the General Tire in 235/55 R18.


go down to ProductRange and klick on the rimsize you have. All tiresizes GeneralTire produce are listed there. Show this to your tiredealer and he shall make a request to his big dealer or to GeneralTire directly. In my time with Offroadcars i had it to often, that the tiredealers have not much experience with some uncommon tires like AT and MT tires are. Most of them just put the car in the PC, get a list ov available tires and sell one of them, finished. If you have special requests you have to convience the tiredealer THAT this tire is available and THAT he should order it from the distribution... If this tiredealer dont want make the effort to get these tires, find another one who is interested in pleased customers...


On the top right is the dealer locator, maybe is one in the near you can call and ask for the tiresize. Because i have the tire on my car, i can easily confirm that this tire(size) exists ;)

I was checking on Tire Rack now and trying on other online dealers.... its just disappointing! I get more results in all here in Europe than you guys there. I would recommend to go to a local tiredealer and ask there for ordering the tires for you.

I have 235/55 R18... If you use the R17 rims it "balance" the bigger sidewall ( 225/65 R17). And think, 1 inch is 2,54cm. in diameter. makes 1,27cm in radius. Check with your thumb if your stocktire have space around... ;)

I'm looking at options for AT tires for my 2019 XV that would give me a bit of extra clearance and this looks like a very attractive option, as I would retain the stock rims. Is it truly 225/65/17? Because that means it's almost an inch taller than the stock tire and it's hard to believe it fits stock and doesn't rub.
I'm also thinking of installing a ReadyLift kit.
Yes it's truly 225/65R17 and it fit fine stock with no rubbing.
I know you didn't ask, but I would recommend you not use the readylift kit. It doesn't space down the rear subframe, which will push the rear wheels farther forward in the wheel well. Check out rallitek, lp aventure, and anderson design fab for complete kits. You really don't want to cheap out on suspension parts since they are so important. I have the rallitek 2" kit and I love it.

About the Snowflakesymbol... its important to udnerstand the story behind this sign... Because of many years wheels for my offroadcars was i doing some research and in german offroad-forum.de had we often diskussions about it...


The fact as i know is, that there exists a OEM wintertire (which is one of the badest wintertires at all after reading tests about it...) which is used to compare to all other tires. If the other tires get better remarks than this special wintertire, they get the snowflakesign. Because the OEM tire is a old one and the new tires come with new, better, compounds is it not that difficult to get better remarks.


BUT! and now it comes, they will work fine for a few days winter but never replace a real wintertire. Thats impossible. And at all, or from all ATs, is the BFG AT still the one with the worst wintercompound. Even in rain is this tire to handle carefully on a 2,5to rig, on our lightweight Crosstreks is just not enough weight on the tire to make it working nicely.
I used the Cooper Discoverer M&S in 235/85 R16 in my old G class and was offroading with them too. This wintertire was going really well offroad and in one of our offroadareas could i outrun a HUMVEE which had big problems there on the wet/icy ground....


The right tirechoice is depending of to much factors and allways a compromise what you are prioritising on first place. I just take myself... i choosed the General Grabber AT because of the gravelroads i may drive here in Norway (and the look, it just still looks cool... ) but honestly? Its worthless.... a light SUV all season or a real wintertire with priority on wet roads would fit my needs much better than the AT. And when i have to replace the ATs will i go for such a alternative.


So whatever you gonna to do, think about what your real needs are, how many wheelsets you have or can accept to have. Then choose the tiretype fitting best your needs. (or just go for the look, up to you ;) )

Please keep this thread On Topic....

This one, and the WITH LIFT threads should be for posting known wheel/tire combo's that fit. With their specs...

Inquiries about other items, even though related, should be done in a new thread, or active topic already going.

Thanks,

C.

I
Yeah, Is there a way to clean it up some, delete or move some posts? It's tough to read through all that when you're just looking for tire sizes that fit.

I looked didn't see this tire size.

235/60/17 Falken Wildpeaks on +45mm wheels. No kind of rub.
.4 inches taller than the stock tires. 225/60/17, 2021 Sport.
