I remember these wheels came in 16" size. Never saw them in 17".

But any how looks great. So u have no rubbing or touching wheeling on the body or fender inner linings? :-)

Well after a short research I found that a 265/65/17 is a also a good size as it's just under 31", whereas 255/70/17 is a 31" tire and that would be the perfect choice on 2" BB.

So to conclude this I have decided that for now I will fit 265/65/17 on JK Moab and see how it works. :-)

Actually the 255/70/17 is slightly smaller on the width but the same circumference as the 265 tire. Both are 31" tires.

:-) so is it going to be a right choice for 2" bb? I know each jeep is different and drives differently when it comes to lift & tire size. Best!

Minimal rub on rear shocks when flexed. Some slight rub on front bumper when backing up and hitting a bump-not enough to convince me to trim it yet.
