new tires

I have a 2008 grand Cherokee overland crd with the original 245/60 r18's. I want to put a 2" lift kit on and add a more aggressive tire. I'm looking at toyo AT II's 255/55/18. Will they fit with out any mods or should I put spacers in. The rims are stock.

I would actually go with taller tires than that with the lift. Here is stock height:

255/65r18 "no rubbing but dam its close"

255's are fine on stock wheels with no spacers.

Here is mine with only 1.5" lift. I do rub on the pinchweld.

Wheels have 5.39" backspacing. No spacers
Bilstein 5100s @1.5" 2 additional spring isolators in rear (~.5")
Matching spare fully inflated
I removed the cross bars, so max height is actually less than before (those things are like 4")
