WJ 2.5/2" budget boost 2014 Rubicon Tires 245 75 17

Here is a picture of my WJ after a 2.5 Front, 2 Rear budget boost and 2014 Rubicon wheels & tires 245 75 17. I like the way it turned out. No trimming at this point. No rubbing. I will have to slightly trim for when I off-road.

very nice jeep. I would have loved to get those rims but they are really high here and the rubicon take offs are a dime a dozen. Mind me asking how much you got them for?

Those are off a Moab Edition JK and the tires are actually smaller than the tires on the Sport, which is why they fit so well. Good job.

Do you rub when backing up and turning?
Especially turned to the right (driver's wheel forward in wheelwell).

How tall are the 245/75/17s? 31.5"?

Which Jeep (model and year) came with the 245/75's vs. the 255/75's on these wheels?

I don't have any rubbing full turn either direction forward or reverse.... now, doing that while hitting a curb going 20mph, and I'd have some contact at this point I'm guessing haha

I'm not sure. They were supposedly take-offs from AEV in MI. Ebay purchase, 1150 for a set of 5 wheels and tires. Great company in my experience with the Missoula MT location.
