Default Tires for stock cherokee 1999

I'm looking for the max tire size I can put on my 1999 Grand cherokee laredo 4.7L without any lift and of course no rubbing. The stock tires are 225/75/16 and they look small. It seems I could go a few sizes larger without any problems. Any suggestions?

I've got 245x70x16's on my '04 with no problem. Granted, they're not much taller but they are wider.

the biggest i would dare to go on a stock grand cherokee would be a 31x10.50r16 if that. if you get 1.5" leveling kit you should be able to tuck those tires easily though and it looks good! =)

245/75/16(assuming you have stock rims) which is roughly 30.5x9.5. Any bigger and you will likely have some rubbing.

If you want to be safe take ol"blues advice and run 245/70/16s' which are about a 29.5x9.5

Default max stock tire size

They are stock wheels 16x7, and the width is really what I"m looking for. I'll look into the 245's Thanks

Just wanted to update you guys. I paid $300 TOTAL for a set of 245/65/17 goodyear fortera on a set of 2004 17 inch Grand Cherokee wheels and they look awesome! 99 JGCL with a 16 inch wheel you can easily run 245/75. it will add some width and fill out the fenderwell more. Thanks for the advice everyone, good luck 99 JCGL
