    Default What was the OEM tire size on a 1991 XJ

    I recently purchased 5 new 205/75R15 General Grabber tires to be installed on 15x7 rims. When I took them to the Pulaski Auto Hobby Shop they basically told me that the couldn't install them because they are too narrow.

    I thought that 205/75/15 is the original tire size on a XJ. I measured the rim and from inside the lip of the rim to inside the lip of the rim is indeed 7 inches so what gives?

    Do I have the wrong size tire for my rims or are the guys at the Pulaski Auto Hobby Shop full of it?

    There were two original equipment sizes for 1991 Cherokees as far as tire sizes go.

    195 / 75 / R15

    and

    205 / 75 / R15
