Jeep introduced the Liberty in 2002. Few changes occurred to the Liberty until 2008, when a complete body redesign occurred. Tire sizing for the Jeep Liberty, however, remained mostly the same and depends on the size of the rims installed.

The Jeep Liberty using 16-inch rims wore tires whose size were either P235/70R16 or P225/75R16. Original tires for the vehicle were Goodyear Wrangler all-season tires for the P225 series and all-terrain tires for the P235 series. A Liberty with 17-inch rims comes off the factory floor with P235/65R17 Wrangler all-season tires. A Liberty with 18-inch rims used P235/60R18 Wrangler all-season tires.
The recommended tire pressure for all models of the Jeep Liberty is 33 p.s.i. (pounds per square inch) for both front and rear tires. The Jeep Liberty comes with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that monitors the pressure in the tires continuously. Variations in the tire pressure cause an alert to flash on the Liberty's dashboard instrument panel. Older models may not be equipped with this sensor.
Altering Tire Size
You may want to modify the tire size on the Jeep Liberty. Be careful doing so. The layout of the wheels and wheel components limits the amount of modification capable. Without using spacers, you can go only one or two sizes wider or taller without rubbing. Anything wider than 29 inches will induce rubbing, which damages the tire.
