2011 Jeep Wrangler Tires

This guy is selling these http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/pts/3857238803.html

Really good deal. Was wondering if they will fit on my Jeep. It has a 2" suspension lift.

Nope, the rims will but the tires won't unless you do a crap load of trimming.

Really? I mean I'm running 265/75/16 and I still have plenty of room it looks like. How bad would the rubbing be?

Ignore the first small size. I'd say it would rub pretty good, but my tires are undersized for my lift so I'm not the right person to ask about trimming haha

I just did a comparison on discount tires web site and the 255's are only .41 inches bigger in diameter (that is new) so with 50% tread left they would only be about .25 inches bigger so they might fit. Only problem is when you have to buy new tires you will have to make sure the new ones will fit.

Previous Jeeps: 84 CJ7 (A True Jeep), 2000 XJ (163,000 Miles/Totaled (Pictures of wrecked Jeep in gallery)), 2004 WJ (parting out die to major electrical issues)

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

Also, I was wanting to put mud terrains on them sometime in the future. Do you see me running into a problem fitting them?

^^^^^^Depends on the size. Like I said, you would have to make sure future tires would fit. If the tire is really wide it would probably rub, but if narrow maybe not.

I guess I was wrong then haha, maybe they will fit right now. I'm willing to bet how ever a mud terrain won't fit as nicely. I got my tires 2 weeks before my lift. Dad was so dead set against me lifting it, until he saw one and was like yeah you can do it, it looked pretty bad ***.....oh the problems of having a jeep when your 18 haha. So I'm sitting at a 2" coil lift and 245/65/17 cooper discover at3's

Those will not fit at 2" lift without rubbing or trimming. I have 3" lift and ran those and it rubbed a but.

Now the confusing parts of the ad:
1. They are NOT off a Rubicon, as they arent mud tires. Rubicons come with KM tires and are 17s. I know, as I am running them. These are off a Sahara JK. I had a set of these a month ago . I got mine for $250.
2. The 2nd pic shows them on a TJ, which is a different bolt pattern. Im guessing he used an adapter to fit them , but its a little confusing. If you decided you want to lift higher to fit them I would verify the bolt pattern to be safe.

I have 4.5" lift and still rub a bit and had to trim my front bumper a bit. They also rub HARD on my control arms at lock. Just an FYI.
