Sorry my bad. Just looking for anyone who may have a similar setup or more are more familiar with wheels that work.

17" factory wheels & tires 245/70r17 seem to open up many more options for aggressive tires or choices in general. 20" factory wheels & tires 265/50r20 although I like the way the wheels look don't seem to have many tire options in the stock 265/50r20 tire size.

I have factory 18s. I guess I could go down to 17s if that makes it easier. Haven't seen many rims in the chrome off road variety.

Sorry for the crappy phone pics but it was fastest. You might be able to get a 275 in there and still close it but I'm not sure. These are a little taller than factory.

Thanks!! Ok well at least it fits. I definitely don't want to go too wide and not be able to close the spare tire cover. Wife would not approve lol.

Hey, thanks! They've certainly performed well. Got plenty of positive comments during our 10 day trip to Fraser Island.

I've had no problem with my 275/65r18's. I've used them at all height settings, full articulation, even bottoming out at speed in the sand (oops)... no rubbing at all.

Before making your purchase, I would check the rolling diameter of the tire you choose. Even though tires are supposed to be a standard size, some are actually taller than others. The tire manufacturers website should tell you. The rims you use will also make a difference, especially if they are wider/narrower or have a different offset from stock.

FYI, the Bighorn MT's I'm running have been great in the red dirt/clay/mud we have in Australia, (which is somewhat similar to what you have in Louisiana if I'm not mistaken).

Hope that helps.

Anyone thought of putting 17" AEV pintlers with 265/70/17's on their lifted wk2? Would there be any problems with that?

I think I narrowed my choice to the MB TKO in chrome. The specs are.
18x9
Back spacing: 5.98 in
Offset: +25

How would these fit on the WK2. I'd prefer to keep things as tucked under the fender as possible.

Thanks!

I have that offset in 18x8.5 with 285's. Sits just a bit outside the fenders.

So the 9 inch wide rim would stick out a tiny bit more?

That setup looks perfect. I plan on swapping on the stock tires till they wear then replacing them with something that size.

The 9" wide rim will still sit in the same location, as the offset is measured to the center of the wheel. You will have less sidewall bulge with the wider rim though. What size tire are you looking at? With my 285's (31.5" tall) I get some rub on the drivers wheel well on big road dips with the stock suspension. If you use a lift or leveling kit, you will have no problems.

Would this setup work well with the stock height/suspension? Or would you need a lift kit to have these fit without any rubbing issues?

I believe some have reported this setup having minor rubbing in the front even with the lift. At stock height I would imagine these tires would definitely rub.
