Grand Cherokee off road tire on stock rims ?

My buddy went wheeling today with it's almost new Grand Cherokee 4.7 L V8 and he destroyed the stock tires.

Whats tires could he fit on it's rims (17") that would handle better some off road outings ?
The stock tire size is something like 275/55/17 ans I think the BF AT doesn't exist in that size range.

Thanks

My fiance' runs a ZJ with a 2 inch spacer lift and 31 inch tires. A very small amount of trimming was done to the front bumper.

Re: Grand Cherokee off road tire on stock rims ?

I would personally stick with the stock size. That will save your buddy from other headaches later (rubbing, speedometer off, lack of power, etc.) unless he were willing to take some trade-offs. Check the web sites below to find out what type of tires are offered in that particular size. They usually have a size search feature. If you can't find a metric size, look for an equivalent inch size. These web sites usually have a conversion tool.
