2' lift kit with P255/65R17 tires?
 
I recently acquired a 05 Grand Cherokee with P255/65R17 BFG Long Trail tires on it. The tires are fairly new and I would like to avoid buying new tires if possible. I have decided on the Rough Country 2' suspension lift kit, but I'm worried that the kit will not look good with the size tires i have. Any insight, advice, or help would be greatly appreciated!!

So will the 2' lift kit look good on the P255/65R17 BFG Long Trails or not??

:confused:

Here's a pic I found in the tire/wheel thread. He's says they are 245/65/17which is about 29.5 and yours are about 30's.

It's the pic in the middle

I run 255/65/17 Goodyear Silent Armor tires stock, with no lift. Fills out the wheel wells no problem - if your just after looks, then yes, a 2" kit with 255's will be a little much.

so then a leveling kit wouldn't do much good either?

If your never going to haul anything, a leveling kit would suit you fine, and is a cheaper alternative as well.

When time permits, I'll shoot/post a couple of pics of mine for examples.

For what it is worth, I just moved up from 245 60 18's to 255 70 18's yesterday. The dealer tripped something on the front suspension because it was rubbing the tire. Charged $48 for that and it is tax season for me so I have not worries about it just yet as to what they trimmed.

Now, when going to a really sharp turn, there is a rub. That is all but it is going to go. The dealer is looking into a lift but I have a client that is a 4x4 place and will get them to do it. Now which lift?????
