    Factory recommendations are inside the door near the lock. Go bigger than that you put lots more stress on the driveline and your speedometer will be inaccurate.

I have a Jeep 1994, tires are (P235/75 R15) Want


I did a quick calculation and found that the 245/70R-16s are 29.50 inches in diameter and a little more than 9.6 inches wide. The max for a stock ZJ is 30 inches diameter and about 10 inches wide; so they might rub a little, both on the LCAs during a tight turn and the wheelwell during full compression.

They will give you another inch or so ground clearance than the 245/70R-15s you have now. However, the lug pattern for the 16 in rims might not match; the stock ZJ pattern is 5 on 4.5 inches. You might have to use adaptor spacers to match the lug pattern on the 16in rim, which might be a good thing; the spacers will keep the tires off the LCAs.

Good luck (remember rated this post).

I have the dreaded death wobble. stock suspensio, 30x9.5x15 tires, just balanced and aligned but the death wobble still happens at 50-60 on the highway


Any competent alignement shop will stress test (pry on) all suspension components. Suspension ball joints, tie rods, links, bushings etc. If everything is tight , and you use the recommended tires and wheels, and the alignment is correct, there should be no wobble. What changed, and when?

I have a 1997 Grand Cherokee Laredo. I get vibration in the front suspension while driving at 60 MPH or hit a bump in the road. I need to slow down to stop the vibration of shaking. Has anyone had this...


you are getting an oscillation .you need to put the front tires on the back and try it again as it could be bad tires.
if it is still the same,put the vehicle on a hoist and check the tire/rim play side to side and up and down.
turn the wheel and check for bearing noise.
common things are wheel balancing,tires,tie rod ends,worn axles and bearings.

I got a 1994 jeep grand cherokee laredo i was wondring how bif of tires can i go without rubbing


I'd say 33s as long as they are not too wide , and you can
do a 2 - 4 in body lift for under 100$ and its simple to do it
and takes you and a buddy around 2 hours , and one other
thing plastic flares on newer vehicles are great because
you can buy larger ones and more easily replace the stock
ones , I do all my shopping at Summit Racing online and
JC Whitney , living in Hawaii its still cheaper for me to shop
those two places than buy local .

What are the best jack points for my '94 Jeep grand cherokee?


Best place for jack is under the end of the axle tube, just before trailing arm attachment point. This will lift axle and tire without extending the suspension. This also depends upon what the ground is like where vehicle is parked. If ground under axle is soft, you can place the jack under the chassis to avoid having the jack fall over or sinking in. Or, if you can, move to more solid ground. What's more important is where not to put the jack...never place it where a suspension arm is attached, on a suspension arm that will change angle as it is going up, on a floorboard or anywhere it will crush a brake or fuel line. If you travel where ground is usually soft, carry a 1" thick 20x20 square of plywood (I carry same made from 1/2" steel. Use it under the jack to spread the load). Though "factory" jack will do the job, I suggest you invest in a halfway decent floor jack with a locking pin (a bit more reliable and safer)

What is the largest tires i can put on a 1999 grand cherokee


Basically, you can put any tire you want under your vehicle providing it fits under the wheel tubs. HOWEVER: remember that each time you increase tire diameter, you are likewise increasing the amount of foot lbs of energy required to get the vehicle underway from a dead start and uphill. You will also be changing the final drive ratio which will cause inaccurate speedometer operation and also affect the speed sensor (if so equipped) output to the ecm. Making a small change such as going from a 225 tire to a 235, is OK as long as you note the speed inaccuracy, to avoid getting speeding tickets, but a jump of three sizes or more could result in driveline and performance problems. Putting in "lift kits" and giant tires looks hot, but unless its done correctly it causes more grief than it's worth, unless you are in need of additional grolund clearance for a specific reason.
