Replacement tires

Totally new to this stuff... I purchased a 2013 Cherokee 264RL and have been advised to upgrade the tires from the current Load range C tires to a heavier load bearing tire... The only decent upgrades require going from a 205 75 r15 to a 225 75 r15. Any body have any suggestions and is it possible to put the 225 75 r 15 on the original rims ??


Oh, and any tire recommendations would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks in advance !

Here's a link to Goodyear Marathon tires at Tirerack... http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....R6V2&tab=Sizes

The 225/75/R15 D should fit okay on your rims but can you fit the 1.2" larger diameter?

Is the reason for the upgrade just to increase the load capacity in general or is there a concern with the C rated tires?

I have a Cherokee 28A and JUST bought 4 new tires (C Rated), should I have gone up a grade?

Not really interested in increasing load capacity as the Cherokee 264RLS has very limited capacity for additional weight as it is, but more so as a protection against potential damage caused should a "Blow-Out" occur. Not that higher load rated tires do not "Blow-Out", any increase in the load capacity can't be a bad thing... The upgrade was recommended by friends who are full-timers....

ok, thanks. I'll keep that in mind for next time, that makes sense.

Forgot to add that from some of the postings I've read, "Blow-Out" damage can be pretty expensive... Far more than the cost of the tires...
