265/75 tire on 09 Liberty
I'm new to this whole thing so I'm sure this question has been asked at one point. I have a 2009 Liberty and I need new tires. I am going to be installing the Daystar 2in front and rear spacer kit. I've gone to multiple tire places and asked what size tire I would be able to go up to. The biggest they mentioned was a 265/75r16. Has anyone put this size on their KK liberty with this size lift? I want bigger tires but I would like to avoid rubbing. Thanks all!

Third, bet no one has mentioned that to run successfully a 32 inch tall tire you'll need to regear, preferably to 4.56s.
Fourth with any lift in the 2-3 inch range stick with a 245-75-16 or 265-70-16 ( both are similar in height) Forget the 265-75-16 until you go to 4 inches of lift and have regeared

Thank you for the info! Very helpful.. I have just been told about 5 different things from different people and I figured this may be a good place to get some accurate info. I will probably go with 245/75r16's then or another tire dealer mentioned 255/70r16's. Haven't looked much into that size. At least I have narrowed my size down and eliminated the 265/75 for sure. Makes things a little easier...
Here's what 245/75/16's look like on my KK. They are as large as I need to go. 245/75/16's are doable without regearing, although you will notice some power and mileage loss on the highway. You can run them with a 2.5 inch lift (mine is 4).
