Your stock tire is 10 inch wide, don't think it's a good idea to run a 10 inch wide tire on a 9 inch rim.

Your stock wheels are 7.5" wide. This is width, that Chrysler/Jeep uses for their 255x75rx17's.

They also sell their aftermarket wheels, which are 8.5" wide, for larger tires, (per their sales brochure)!

So your wanting to go with your 255's, on a 9" wide wheel, is really pushing it.

I would check with the tire manufacture, and see what they recommend.
Your local Discount Tire store, is also a good, reliable source of information.

Remember, that you are looking at Safety here, so I would go right to the source, for accuracy..........

Yes, PM the discount tire guys. They are great. I had similar questions, but wanted to keep my stock wheels. They made sure I understood what I wanted, and what I could do. You could also probably get a 15" wheel and tire combo for much less than you think.

The tire manufacturer is the authoritative source of information and DT follows their recommendations. Lookup the specs for your tire brand and size. It is always provided as a range of recommended rim sizes. You can usually go 1/2" over or under the range but going wider is usually a bad idea if you ever air down even moderately to go on the beach for instance. Sidewalls are designed to bulge out so a slightly narrow rim works fine because it introduces some outward bulging of the sidewall but a rim that is narrow has the opposite effect which is counter to the design of the sidewall. None the less you see vehicles on the road where the rim sticks out further than any portion of the tire. This makes the rims more vulnerable to damage. A 9" rim is probably on the upper side of the range for that tire size or 1/2" wider.
