Slight size issue ....

So I have been collecting moabs over the past we weeks, current count stands at 10, these last 5 I acquired had some tires on them... Thinking this is def a no go but I have to try to see how badly they really DONT fit....
265 70 17
Quick comparison...






survey says ... time for some vertical help....

I would have to agree with you on the lift. I'm running 255/70r18 with my 2" lift and I have no rubbing. You would probably hit the bolt from the UCA with the 265's without a lift.

265/65 will go on without a lift and some wheel spacers. With the moabs you will need a minimum spacer of 1/4".

Im still in the process of looking and finding a lift that I want. I may not do it for months until I figure out what I want.... We will see.

Whether or not you have a lift has no bearing on the distance from the hub to the UCA bolt.

I run 265-70-17's on my '05. 2"RC BB, 1.25" spacers and the pinch weld and those will fit perfectly.
