We do have numerous tire chains that will fit a 255/75-17 tire on your 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, but the Thule 245 chains will not. I have included a link to all of the available chains that will fit your tire size. If you are looking for something that can be used on or off-road there are several options in this size.

First is the Glacier V-Bar Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners, # PWH2828SC. Next, we have the Glacier Mud Service Snow Tire Chains, # PWH2439S. And there is the Pewag All Square Mud Service Snow Tire Chains, # PWE2439S, which will offer the best grip.

Titan Chain also has several options rated for on and off road use:

# TC2828CAM
# TC2828
# TC2228SCAM
# TC4231CAM
# TC2439
# TC4831
# TC4831CAM
# TC4231

Make sure to consult your vehicle owners manual to determine if chains can be used and if there are any restrictions. I have included a link to our tire chain FAQ for reference.
