Who’s running what kind 17” tires (on limiteds)? I need something new- but only street tires. I have Moab’s and MTR’s for off roading. Prices on 17”s are scary- I can only guess at 18” prices

That particular size is unique to the Liberty Limited's aren't they?

When Johnny (AKA Scorpiate) was shopping for new tires he also found them to be a bit more expensive than the 16" tires. Have you considered changing to 16" rims & tires? You's have more rubber between the rims & the road. A 245/65R17 & a 245/65R16 would have the same diameter, 30.5".

Firestone Destination LE is what I am running.

I find them to be a very good street tire. My mother has them on her Explorer and my brother is also running them on his Liberty. They have done very well in the dry, rain and snow. Low noise thus far and they look like they are wearing very well.

They were right around $110 each. That is on the low end of the tire prices for the Limited size tires. I bought five and do a five tire rotation.
