It is hard to say what size tire you need.First thing we need to know is the size of the rim or wheel you have on the car now.You can get this information from the side of the tire on the car.
The factory size : 15"-wheel
195/65R15 - 205/60R15 16"-wheel
205/55R16 - 215/50R16 17"-wheel
225/45R17 - 235/40R17 18"-wheel
225/40R18

REAR passenger tire makes loud clunking and grinding noises when turning more than 30-45 degrees above 5-15 mph


I don`t think you have cv axles in the rear of that.My guess would be wheel bearings could be grinding. Donut spares are strickly to be used for short periods of time and not to be driven at any higher rates of speed. Some damage may have occurred during the actual incident when you had the flat initially.Damage to the rear axle itself,

Can't find the jack stowage on my '06 Jeep Grand Cherokee


It is underneath the donut tire. 1st you have to lift up the carpet in the back, then the "door". Now pull out the donut tire and the Tire Jack is underneath. We had to do a search and rescue on ours years ago and had a terrible time finding it too!!

How far can you drive on a spare tire ''donut''.


It should say on the Donut Not to exceed 35 Miles Per Hour. It is OK to drive on, Just make sure that it is Properly Inflated and you do not go too Fast as it will shred the tire and you will have a Bigger Problem!
