The 215's will give you less ground clearance and may affect your speedometer accuracy a bit. Other than that and that it may look a bit different, there should be no real problem.

Is there a access panel in the 1998 grand Cherokee jeep without dropping the gas tank


I replaced the fuel pump in a 1995 Jeep Cherokee Sport without having to remove the gas tank. Maybe you can too in your '98 Grand Cher. If your fuel pump is accessed from the upper front of the gas tank-above the rear differential-then you should be able to remove the pump with the tank in place. It was easy on that jeep of my son's, took only about an hour or two.

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.

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 a 2000 jeep cherokee sport with factory rims whats the biggest tire i can use without rubbing thank you for your input todd


the bigger tire you put on up above 235/75/15 will change the handling of your jeep and will wear out the front steering an suspension parts.I've seen what 31/10-50/15 have done to several jeeps.It just takes the life out of a jeep,even by putting the correct tires back on afterwards when they have traded it in where I work,The handling is not there any more.

When new battery is connected starter whirs without key in ignition -- 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport


Sounds like the starter solenoid is stuck on, most likely need to replace the starter, sometimes what can be done is tap the solenoid with a wrench or a small hammer and it may come loose, if it stops i would still recommend replacing the starter because it will happen again 9/10 times. Also check the wiring to the starter and make sure the start wire is not shorted or installed improperly. If there is constant voltage at the smaller start signal wire, the problem is somewhere in the wiring or the keyswitch.

2003 Gr. Cherokee Tire PMS overactive with smaller sidewall tires


Hello partner. The difference in air pressure variations from a 16',17' or 20" tires is a non-factor. Any size tire will go up about 1psi per 10 degrees ambient temperature. The recommended pressure for an 03 Grand Cherokee is 33psi. So if it's a rainy 55 degrees in the great northwest when you set your pressures the temperature on your trip to Death Valley would have to climb to about 175 degrees. On a different note maybe your alarm just isn't calibrated correctly.
