Anyone have a pic of this? Will they fit on a stock height 2005 GC?

265/70 R17 on Non-Lifted WK Grand Cherokee 2005-2009

I am assuming a 2" lift is required for these tires, I would like to know if anyone has tried it. I want to know the widest tire I can fit without lift. Sounds like I will have to lift it 2" though.

I got a set of Rubicon rims and tires, 265/70R17, from a 2009 Wrangler. I used spacers in the front for a while, then I just ground off a little metal from the front brake calipers and the spacers are no longer needed. There is just a very small amount of rubbing when you turn the wheel all the way, but it is not even noticable until you look at the plastic in the wheelwell. It has not even wore through the plastic yet, and I have 82,000 miles on them. Again, this is with no lift.
