I got GY Fronteras in 245/75x17 on my 04, they don't rub but they do come close while turning and backing up.
Find a dealer who really wants to sell tires, he'll mount one or two for you to try out.

Are you guys running different rims? The normal size rim for WJ's is 16 inch.

Previous Jeeps: 84 CJ7 (A True Jeep), 2000 XJ (163,000 Miles/Totaled (Pictures of wrecked Jeep in gallery)), 2004 WJ (parting out die to major electrical issues)

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

Thats equivalent height to a 32" tire. No way its fitting at stock height without a bit of rubbing - 32" at 5" of lift I still had to trim my bumper.

i have a 245/75r16 and they have rubbed a few times on a 2.5"bb so i bet a 245/75r17 will rub pretty bad if you dont have a lift.

if you want a 15" rim you have to by a steel one. the aluminum 15" rims wont clear the calipers. 16" aluminum is the smallest you can fit.

i found it's cheaper in the long run to buy some 15" steel wheels and 31" tires than trying to buy super expensive hard to get 26 5 70 17's... now if i have a blowout in the middle of nowhere, a 31x105x15 is easy to find used to get me going again.
however, you will need to lift your wj if you plan on running anything other than the stock 235's...
