Another Tire Size thread

I have already searched this forum and couldnt find specifically what I need. I have a 2012 2WD Libby with 225/65R16 and I am about ready for new tires. I know I want BFGoodrich rugged terrains but want to know if I will have any issues with a 235/70r16? I would like to go bigger but I dont want to pay for the tires and have an issue. Every thread I read seems to be for a 4x4 and I am almost possitive 4x4's have more clearance. I had a friend who had the same exact vehicle as me but his was a 4x4 and it sat higher with larger factory tires. I dont want to beat a dead horse with yet another tire size post but I just want to be positive before I purchase that the 235/70's will fit without any rubbing. Thanks

They should sit very close to the same, I'd say you can go even to 245-70-16s without issue unless your's has sagged a ton, which being a 12 shouldn't have at all

Here is my previous thread on Tires: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f292/...berty-1319029/

I have 245/75R/16.
Have had them for more than a year now.
Driven almost 55K on these
No rubbing
No Lift

I put 235x70x16 Michelin Lattitude Tours on my 09 2x4 Sport in April -- no problems whatsoever, and better, more stable ride.

I thought Stock 4x2 and 4x4 sat the same height. 235/70/16s come on stock 4x4s.

235/70's it is then, thanks everyone for the help
I am almost positive the 4x4 sit higher in front, maybe false though and just the difference between my 225/75's and my buddies 235/70's

+1.

Question for JSAN: Do you off-road it? Doesn't look like much room for articulation or flex
