Now do you have any clearance or rubbing issues with that combination?

IIRC, those tires are 32.1" which is not a big deal in the grand scheme of things.


Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.

The wheels are 18x7.5 with ~45mm backspace (I think it says 45.6 or 44.6 or something on the actual wheel. can't remember off hand). The back of the wheel spokes barely clear the calipers. We are probably talking less than 1/4" of clearance.
Tires are 255/70/18. so yes, 32.1" diameter (815mm). I'm giving up a little bit in tired width, but it still looks and feels good. No clearance issues at all. That picture is with Quadra Lift @ Normal Ride Height. I have heard/read somewhere that the WK2 can definitely accept any tire up to 800mm diameter. These are 15mm more and I don't have issues. That may change with increased width. I plan to put on 275/65/18 tires on when I burn through these (same diameter, 0.8" more width) and I don't plan on having any issues based on what I've read. But we'll see...... (possibly depends on actual tire selected since it's pretty close)
