Thank you for the quick response!!
You'll probably have minor rubbing at full lock. A wheel spacer may be needed, but I think the 18s have enough clearance/offset to not need them.
at the 235/60/18 the overall diameter comes in at 29.1, should i be worried? i know everyone says 28.4 fits well..
I could go 225/60/18 but want the extra width in the 235. Decided on the Yoko Geolandar a/t

A 225 would definitely fit better and probably have no rubbing. The extra 10mm width is minimal; that's 1cm. If you're worried about fitment, go with the 225.

I'm running 235/65-17 which is 29" and they have minimal rubbing at full lock. If you go with 29.1" you'll have more rubbing, but still minimal. I wouldn't expect any noticable traction differences between 225 and a 235.

Don't know if this can help, but see the picture for what authorized tires are given to the Compass 2021 in Spain.

Has anyone tried 235/60 R16 tyres AT tyres. Unfortunately this is the only size available locally that is closest to the original 225/55 R18 that I have presently.

Will these fit without any rubbing. I am concerned about the width since these are wider than standard size.
I have original Jeep Steel wheels in the 16 Inch 6.5 J size which I would use for the 235/60 R16 tyres.

I have the Trailhawk. Since you only have a little rubbing and the Trailhawk sits an inch higher, do you think I‘d get away with the same size (235/65r17) and no rubbing?
Btw, stock Trailhawk sits on 235/60r17 here in Germany… There seems to be a little room left….
Most of my rubbing is on the front/rear of the fender liner. So no, being higher won't help with that. However, if you go with a smaller spacer, you probably won't have as much or any rubbing. I was running 1.5", so I'd try 1.25" or even 1".

I was thinking of no spacer at all? Since it’s the same width as my stock size (235), it should be fine, right?
