No way man he told you wrong, if you run different sized tires its like changing the gear ratio. one differential is gonna be faster than the other and chew it up. thats a big difference in tire size too so you did some damage. need to demand they fix it.

you have a computer for your control on your car. It is set up so only the factory front and rear tires sizes will work, any change, it picks it up. this should solve the problem.

Knocking in back right of my Jeep Grand Cherokee '02


I would check and see if your lug nuts are all tight before I drove it again. Lug nut should be check within the first 50 miles after a tire removal. But your right, could just be a loose shock, or your spare tire, if it is hung under the rear of your vehicle.

Change tire sizes from 265/40 to 265/35 and 225/40 to 225/35


When resizing tires, the best method is +1,-1 or -1, +1. That is, if you add to the width one size (i.e. 235 -> 245), then you need to go down one aspect ratio (i.e. 40 -> 35). So if you run 225/40ZR18 tires and want to keep your speedo accurate, 235/35ZR18 works for a "plus one" and 215/45ZR18 will work for a "minus one" change. This way, your impact on speedometer accuracy is minimal.

Hope this helps,
matt
