Should this setup (tires/wheels) be ok without a lift

I can't afford a lift, otherwise I would be getting one. I am looking at getting Goodyear Duratrac 285/70/17's and these Pro Comp wheels,

http://www.quadratec.com/products/92819_2903_07.htm

should this setup work ok without any other sort of changes? (my factory wheels are 17's)

I want to go with the largest size tires I possibly can, without rubbing and other changes. I am just on a tighter budget.

This will be going on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited 4door.

Thanks

probably would depend on the wheel's back spacing and how much taller these tires are compared to your stock size.

You might have to do some cutting...but without looking too much in to it I don't see why not.

check your PM

I think you'd have better luck with some 265 tires.
