tire size

Ok I got a 05 wk with a 2" rough country lift. I also have 2" wheel spacers. I need to know the largest size tire I can fit comfortably without rubbing while turning or anything. I got black rock 17x8 rims. Please help me out here!!

Before anyone yells at you I'll help you and direct you to the numerous stickies,threads and posts about this....just literally go look at tire/wheel combo threads. good luck......also depends on if you've done the pinch weld and rear fender mod.

As Imann said use the stickies or search function. They are your best friend on this site. Now since this is your first post it is understandable so we can't get mad at you for that. Back to the question. With the 2" lift most folks end up going with a size 265/70/17 tire. What is the backspacing on your wheels? You may have no need to install spacers and 2" spacers are pretty big so the wheel will stick out pretty far.

2" spacers?

I think that will push the wheels outside the wheel-wells, and might look ridiculous. I think most of the people in here that run spacers are using 1½"

Poor grammar is something up with which I shall not put.
