Tire help needed.

Not for my truck. For my mom's Liberty.

She said she wants new tires for her Liberty before the snow starts to fall since the tires that are on it now are like highway tires and spin on wet pavement when turning. So I suggested BFG AT KO's BUT they don't make them in the right size for her Jeep. The tire size on it now is P235/65R17. I know that 17" wheel is whats the killer. So my question is, what is next in line behind the BFG AT as far as AT tires go? The tire can not be any bigger then whats on it now since they do rub a smidge under somewhat hard cornering.

I highly doubt my mom wants to spend money on coil spacers AND new rims. lol

I asked on the jeepkj.com forums and I guess this tire size is a ***** to find. There's only like 4 choices out there.

and they all pretty much suck too, think about it this way, if you change rims you wont have to go through the hassle of finding tires when it comes time to change, its possible trust me, i just got my dad to get rid of his stock 20's on his 05 ram cause 1. tires are retardly expensive, 2. it will look better.........my dad is a tight *** too

Negative. I actually might have her getting some new 15" wheels so she has a LOT more tire choices.

There is only one problem with the 15" wheels that I see right now. They MIGHT not clear the disc's. I asked on the kj forums to be sure.

As of right now, she's getting the BFG AT KO in 235/75R15 form mounted on US Wheel Black Modular 15x8 wheels. Just making sure on the KJ forums that the wheels will clear the brakes.
