From that pic of you cutting, is there enough cherokee's in that pic? Think there were one or two short of a "Dealership" status.
There were only four, sadly 2 of them are yours

Got the tires installed today.

I will say that these tires are louder than I thought but that is something that can be solved by turning up the radio.

I do get some rubbing when I am at full lock but other than that I don't have any clearance issues with these tires.

Looks great with those tires/lift man. That blue color is sexy!

Is it just me or does the back sit lower than the front with the OME lift?

With the stock tires it rode awesome but with these new tires it is a stiff ride.

Yeah one side with the OME leaf springs is a 1/2" lower for some reason but I will hopefully be fixing that with the OME AAL

So for an update, I did a 5 hour trip to and from Alabama this weekend and the tires are way loud but turning the radio up fixed the issue. The one thing I do like is now I don't have to worry about speeding tickets because once I go over ~75 it gets a bit uncomfortable so I slow it back down.

Since I never really got any good pictures of the tires here is the best I could get:



and 10.5" is definitely the widest you can go on factory rims.

Get some spacers so you don't have to ditch the icons. Looks good

I'm also running 265/75/16 GoodYears on my Icon wheels. I had to use spacers to get them away from the leaf springs.

Nice rig!

When I get new tires I'm gonna be getting those ones. For how much I'm traveling lately my mud tires are just getting eaten up. Gonna have to go with an all terrain when they wear out.

I love these rims! Hopefully I don't have to get wheel spacers.

Thanks! Right now the tires have not rubbed the leaf springs but if they do I will have to get spacers.

Look what I got for $10! Got them from a friend that used to have a lifted jeep but never installed them.

So I installed the OME AAL in the rear and a 3/4" spacer up front to bring it to 21" all around from the hub the the bottom of the flare. I think it looks a lot better. So far with the 4 degree shims I get no vibes.
