Need tire size advice please!

Adding a 2" body lift to my KK and going with a 18"x 9" size rim. Needing some advice on tire size...
Looking for something that is off-road looking but lasts more like a A/T.

Have fun installing that body lift on your KK
Its a super tough job since there is no frame so can't be done
Full spring lift ( OME springs / shocks) is the only way to go for lift
9 inch rims too wide unless you stay with the tires with no sidewalls and bad ride
Tires good overall Duratracs/ go with 16 inch wheels ditch the 18s

My mistake, wasn't trying to get technical.
How about just a 2" lift that I'm having done by a professional?
And the rims I like are only available in 18" x 9" and up, so I went with the smallest.

Full spring lift? Some "professionals" don't know what the best thing to install on a IFS is so will sell you crap.
Also again 9 inch wheels are too wide unless you are running rubber band tires

yeah.. ton of posts on hear about lift kits for the liberty. Spend the money and do it right the first time. I have 4" lift on mine from JBA and the 265/75r16 rubbed a bit. Would imaging that 265/75 is as big as you can get. They are around 31.7 inches. I doubt 32's would work without some change to the wheel well plus I am sure the travel at full compression would be hampered due to it.
