Howdy everyone. I'm a noob here and was wondering if anyone could tell me if I could safely put a larger tire on my stock Sportage rims? How big can I go without causing clearance problems? Thanks in advance.
Every time I find a tire that I like, they don't make it in my size!!! I like the Nitro Dune Grappler tire(not a mis-spelling). If you find something unique for the stock size, please let us know!
I also have bought Indy 500 Fire-hawk raised white letters for a family van before. But they dont come in my size either.
I own my second Sportage so I must really like em. I consider this one to be my second husband. Main issue with mine was the Timing Key(woodruff)
I don't know what tires they are selling at Wally World, but Wranglers I got are OEM's. 235's and cost $280 out the door! Around here that is really cheap. Check Craigslist because some small tire stores are getting these from Goodyear because of lack of cars being built using them. Tread is nice but not noisy. Ride and drive is good.
Couldn't find NITRO Dune Grappler but did find NITTO Dune Grappler. Would be interested in a link to the NITRO tires.
