Tires for snow/mud??

I have the stock rims, what tires are the best I can buy to fit these rims? or should I look at 18 or 19 inch rims and tires for those??


Thanks
I will do some searching here, but I figure I would ask

My dear friend...........I live in the Montreal area and we have a load of snow up here every year............my recommandation if you have stock wheels which I assume are 17inches...........would be to go to 16 inches instead of bigger...............
to have similar diameter the proper one would be 215-65-16.........

Check it out.....My 2 cents !

I would for sure go with a smaller wheel maybe 15 or 16. That way you can get better tires with more tread which is better for the snow. I would not go bigger at all. Her is a list of other jeep wheels with the same lug pattern. Maybe you can find some on a local craigslist or maybe e-bay or something.

5 on 4.5", 4.7" back spacing. Same as:

87-95 Jeep Wrangler (YJ)
97-06 Jeep Wrangler (TJ)
04-06 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (TJ)
93-98 Jeep Grand Cherokee (ZJ)
84-01 Jeep Cherokee (XJ)
86-92 Jeep Comanche (MJ)
02-07 Jeep Liberty (KJ)
2007 Jeep Compass (MK)
2007 Jeep Patriot (MK)
