245/75R16 Without a Lift???

I have a few things to do to my Liberty, but Winter is almost here and I need the new tires first. I was wondering if I can do the tires with some new rims with a 4'' backspace without doing the lift first? I will do the lift in about a month or two. What do you think???

highly doubt it unless you only drive straight and no bumps
Without knowing the year and mileage its also harder to give you more information
BUT by the time most KJs are at 75,000 or so they have sagged an inch so running that size on stock wheels would rub
that size on those wheels DIFFIDENTLY will rub a lot
Lift first then tires and if you think you need aftermarket wheels

What lift are you considering?

I have an '03 with 55,000 miles. I had thought it would work since the tire is only 1-1/2'' larger and 1/2'' wider with the backspacing pushing the wheel out another 1-1/2'' further to the outside of the wheel well. I'm gonna go with your lift, the 3.5 econo from JBA.

If you are still up close to 19 inches middle of the wheel to bottom of the flare they may work on stock wheels. Thing is 245-70-16s would rub some when new and they're 29.5
measure like I mentioned above and see where you are
