Enjoy! They are great tires.

I have 225/55/18s but also have a 225/60/17 as a spare. Great service from DT as well.

Dang I keep wishing someone would be the Guinea Pig on the 235 60 17 cooper discoverers and see if they fit on a lifted SG

235 is wide. With OE offset, I fear they will hit the rear spring perch. Spacers, maybe not so much.

My 2007 FXT 5MT is sold. Currently looking for the next toy.

I was thinking of putting them on a 40 or 42 offset wheel. How much space is there between the strut and tire on a 48 offset wheel and 225?

Not a lot. I have 225/50 on it now, but the strut body tapers up to the spring perch, so I think the 235 on a 60/65 would get into that taper.

They barely fit my SH on stock wheels.

Option exercised!




Lowest non-suspension component is the bend in my Milltek CBE where it passes under the CV at 9.5" of ground clearance. It will flex up if contacted. Lowest solid part is the Primitive 3/8" differential skidplate at 11".
