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..........
