Largest tires on 2008 Escape XLT

Postby chiggenbotham - October 19th, 2018, 3:40 pm

Looking to upgrade the tires on my 2008. I want something beefier and more all-terrain. I'm wondering if anyone could advise on what's the largest I could do without it looking goofy. I already planned on getting either the 1.5 or 2 in leveling kit and am not completely against cutting into the wheel well but if it could be avoided that would be great. As for rims, I'd love to run an all black steely or something super basic like that. Thanks in advance!

You can go to tirerack.com and search for 17" or larger wheel/tire combinations.
The web site will allow you to show your vehicle with the selected wheel package to give you
an idea how it will look.

I have 235/65R17 Cooper AT3s, but larger wheels/ lower profile tires are out there that don't
adversely affect the speedometer.

I have a 2008 limited and got the 1.5 inch leveling kit. I put 265/55/17 firestone destination a/t's on and they looked AWESOME, but they scrubbed like crazy forever. This was was about 4 years ago and they are pretty worn so they don't scrub anymore. If you don't want to cut into the wheel well I would stay around 245 or 255.
