I am thinking about putting a set of 255/75R17's on my JL Sport Unlimited. I am picking up 5ea Roubaix JL Wheels tomorrow and am looking to add upgraded rubber as well.

The 255/75R17 does not appear to be a popular choice here.

Comparison:

245/75R17 (stock) = Diameter 31.5" x Width 9.6"
255/75R17 (getting) = Diameter 32.1" x Width 10.0"
285/70R17 (stock Roubaix) = Diameter 32.7" x Width 11.2"

The stock Roubaix tire size will fit the Sport but many of the images I've seen, it appears to be a tight squeeze without a lift.

The 255/75R17 I am considering look to be about in-between the stock sport and the stock Roubaix sizes.

I am considering these: (C rated tires only)

Thoughts? Anyone running this size already?

I’m thinking of running 28570R17 on my SportS - everything I’ve read makes me believe I can use them without a lift. Anyone know elsewise?

Went with Goodyear DuraTrac in 255/75R17

Will update once they come in and get mounted to the Roubaix wheels..
