245/70/17 is a more suitable size for a 2" lifted WJ.

I ran them on 2" spacers for about 9 months ... lots of rubbing on the control arms and rear shocks.. save yourself the headache and go smaller.

I ran this tire size and had no problems until I went offroad they rub and hit everything. I got the 17" moabs with 265-70 Toyo mts they fit but only for street use on my 2" lift.

I have a 2.5 rustys bb with 265/70r16 and they rub offroad when flexed good. I dont run disco eather if i did i would have big problems. If you plan on going offroad dont go 265/70r17.
