Will JK Rubicon Moabs fit on a 2003 WJ Overland? I thought the Overland came with taller springs from the factory and am wondering if they provide enough clearance to fit the larger tires (255/75/17 I believe).
At stock height ('04 Laredo) those tires would rub, but not terribly. I have the Moabs with the 255/75/17 Goodyear SRAs on them. They mostly rubbed the front inner fender when turning. With OME HD springs and 10mm spacers I have only had slight rubbing on the rear shock when off road.
They will fill up the wheel well at stock height which will limit up travel a lot, but normal highway driving isn't too bad. But they are great (I think) at 3.5" of lift.
I should have taken a pic! But I only had them on for the day to see if they'd fit. I didn't want rubbing at all while driving on the street, so took them off. But have them on now that I have my lift installed.
I haven't run them disconnected yet and I expect a fair amount of rubbing then. But off road while connected, I had minimal issues.
Even with a 3.5-4" lift, most tires that size will require a little trimming, and that's just for regular daily driving. Especially if it's an aggressive tires, like the BFG Mud Terrains that come on some JK's. I have JK wheels with 265/70/17 Goodyear Duratracs, which are pretty aggressive, but a little less aggressive than BFG Mud's and a little smaller, too, and without trimming, they bite the **** of the lower inside lip of the front bumper. I'm an 3.5"+ lift. A less aggressive tire will usually be more forgiving, but on the other hand, all makes of tire vary in size. A 255/75/17 from one brand might only be 31.8" and another brand could be as much as 32.5". So that depends as well.
Regardless, you need a lift to run that size, and will most likely need some trimming. You would need full on fender trimming to fit them on a stock vehicle, and even if you trimmed as much as possible, you would still rub when the suspension flexed (unless you got bump stop extensions that limited up-travel to maybe an inch lol).
