Hello all. I have a chance to buy 5 Goodyear Wrangler Territory M/T tires for a great price. They are new take offs from a Bronco which came with an 8.5 wheel. Anyone use these tires? Opinion on fitment with Mojave wheels? Oh, I think the correct name is Goodyear Territory M/T

You’ll be fine. I’ve been running 315/70/17 tires on the stock, 7.5” Sport S wheels for 2 years now with no issues. That includes towing, LOTS of highway, forest roads at 15-36 psi, beaches at 15–36 psi, and light-moderate rock crawling at 15-36 psi.

Don’t miss your tire deal due to the wheel width on these trucks. I’m sure others will chime in but that’s my experience based opinion with the Sport S wheels which are also just 7.5” wide.

Edit: Just wanted to add that I don’t baby my JT on pavement either. I ride fast on the highway frequently and take curves/corners much faster than most people feel comfortable doing in their sedans. It’s a very planted ride on my setup. I don’t think you’ll run into any serious performance issues.

I have the 315/70 17 on a Wrangler 392 non xr factory rim and never had any issues. My son runs a 325/60 20 on his gladiator with stock high altitude wheels with no major issues. His will rub at full lock left or right

Thanks to all for your information. I already purchased a Terraflex 1.5" spacer for the front and Daystar.75" for the rear. I want to maintain a little rake and have decent articulation/travel.
