215 75 15 for the 4.0L engine., 225 75 15 minimum for the 5.2L (318 CID) and 5.9L (in the 1998 Limited model only). These are the minimum sizes; larger sizes may be applied per the owner's manual guidelines.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

For starters, the numbers you give "255/70/70" are not a tire size....the final 2 digits should be something like 15, 16, 17, etc.

Secondly, you ask if the tire and wheel will fit your vehicle, and that might be possible, but only if the wheel lug pattern is exactly the same and there is not a clearance issue with the tire and the undercarriage of the vehicle.

Suggest you go to a local tire shop and pose the question to them (especially if you can take tire and wheel you are inquiring about with you so they can see it0.

I have 31x10.5x15 tires on the rear and stock 15in tires on the front of a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The front end is trying to lock in 4 wheel low. Is it because of the different size tires? Can I disable...

Tire size is critical on any jeep but especially so on ones with quadratrac transfer cases. If you run different size tires it will cause the fluid coupler inside the case to overheat and fail. (big$ to repair)
Don't drive it that way and get a matching set of tires on there asap!!!

Will 235/75/r15 tires look ok with a 2 or 3 inch lift?

Were you not planning on increasing the tire size after lifting it? They may look a little small with a 3" lift, its a personal preference. If it was me, I would probably go to a larger tire like 285/75R15 or even 305/75R15. Also remember if you put a bigger tire on this thing the speedometer will be off. It will say your going 55 but you may be going 60. Also bigger tires will change the overall gear ratio. It will increase gas mileage but lower the torque to the wheels.

What size is the oil drain plug on 97 4.0 Jeep Cherokee

The stock oil drain plug size isa 5/8 or 16 mm....But that doesnt mean that is the size or that the plug wasnt replaced ....your best bet would be to purchase or bring with you under the jeep a socket or wrench set from ten mm to 19 mm set ( 10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19) and go from there...hope i helped.....

Specs on 2002 jeep grand cherokee alloy wheels R16

the tires & rims that come with your vehicle are designed to meet all the specs of your vehicle. When you change sizes and styles, you then need to get the computer re programmed with the tire changes you have made. It affects your speedometer, your transfer case, your fuel (mpg) and the performance of the engine to the wheals. Also you can damage your transmission and rear end. So my advise is to buy a high end tire that meets origional specs. Look at the Toyo's they are great tires, great performance and no alterations are needed. Pluss they look cool as hell so try that
check this site out and call them, they have better deals on the phone and have fricking great prices on tires.

Let me know how it goes.
