Geolander AT/S Question

6918 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  FLHRSI
The stock tire on a 2011 OB is 225/60/17, would a 225/65/17 fit without any rub issues? It would just be 1/2" taller tire correct? I'm interested in swapping out the stock conti's at the end of the summer and the Yokohama Geolander AT/S tires look very nice. I've read a great deal about them from all the tire threads on this board. Also was looking at the General Grabber tires but they don't come in the stock size, anyone know what is the best size that fits without issues?

My understanding is the the limiting factor in upsizing tires is the spring perch on the Gen 4s. It looks like .5 inches taller would fit (but not much room left). Is this ok? Here are pics of the clearances between OEM 225/60 R17 and the perch. I may need new tires and would like to get 225/65 R17s if they fit safely.

You wouldn't get any rubbing on the skirts at 9 and 3 on the 4th gen?
I think I can squeeze another .5 inches in there- what do you think? :8:



Will be close for sure.
