Here are a couple I just took. I have the 265/60R18 Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar.
Pictures in order... Front, Rear, Front turned all way to Left, Close-up back of Front wheel well clearance, Underside looking up behind front tire.
Oldie Thank you very much ! I will also get 265, but different tires, because all my driving on pavement roads.

I'm also going to eventually get the JSport 1.5" kit to give me a little extra. $595 for the set is not a bad price.

If you go back a couple posts you'll see a picture I posted when I was out on the beach on the Lower end of Assateague Island, VI.


Joshua, No, there is no rubbing at all. Yes it looks close, but it's not. I'm hoping to give the tires a good test next weekend when we visit Knoxville and drive up to the Devil's Backbone.

But did you carry all that stuff with the 265s? I’m thinking about going ko2‘s. Just wanna make sure it doesn’t rub, especially when I have people in the rear of the car.
Yes. I take the grill with us to all the football games we go to. So far this year We've been to Buffalo (Bills), Knoxville (Univ. of Tenn), and tomorrow going to Washington (Redskins). We take the canoe out maybe 4-5 times a year. It's mostly when we go to Chincoteague, VA. As for the Flooring, that was right after I had the 265's installed. I also usually have a full load of teens in Smoky since I'm one of the certified drivers for my daughter's girl scout troupe.

I just bought a set of firestone destination A/T2 265/60/18, the rim is a 18x8 45 offset. I also have a 1.5 inch jsport leveling kit installed. So far the ride is good no rub no issues.

Original size is 245/60/18. If 265/60/18 fits, would anyone consider 245/65/18? The advantages I see are: 1. same fuel economy, cuz same tire width. 2. extra tire cushion = more comfortable (I don't care much about "handling").

265 60r18 requires a rim that is between 7.5 and 9.5. Stock rims are 8. So technically the tire will fit safely on the rim. More rubber on the road should equal better traction. Someone said your more likely to hydroplane. I would say that's true if you put an all terrain tire on.

Looking to upgrade.
What did you finally get, and how is it working out?

My avatar & pics in album show my '19 touring w/18x8", +38 offset rims. 265/60/18 Falken wildpeak at3w tires. Slight rub at full lock both ways, but I'm rarely at full-lock.

I'm not sure why that would be. If you still have good tread that the water is forced out of, seems they shouldn't hydroplane. But maybe the type of rubber would matter? I've been looking at triplemtn/snowflake tires w/the softer winter rubber compounds, I think they wouldn't hydroplane. First impression w/teh wildpeaks & the nokian R3suv is no hydroplaning.
