    I have a 2003 jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and I found someone selling 5 tires with rims for good price. My jeep has 245 16 on it and the jeep that these came off is a 2014 jeep wrangler they look the same but not sure if I can use a 17 on mine. Any advice would be appreciated thanks

    3 inch zone lift. Fox 2.0 shocks. 35 inch nitto ridge grapplers. Bushwacker flat fenders. No name steel bumpers front and back for now.
    Just make sure the lug pattern is the same on your GC. Any idea what size the new tires are? I would imagine the 17 inch wheel will work but depending on the size of the tire itself, it might rub the wheel wells if they're too big.

    The WJ Grand Cherokee (99-2004) and the JK Wrangler both have a 5 on 5 bolt pattern so you are good there.
    Tire size may be an issue though.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Also, keep in mind. Going from a 16 inch wheel to a 17 inch wheel, will throw your speedometer off. Your most likely goin to have to look into getting your shifting points recalibrated with your tranny.

    Welcome! Assuming the bolt pattern matches and backspacing matches well moving from 16" to 17" is considered a PLUS ONE sizing. Could work in your favor when done right.
