Tire and Wheel Combination

So, if I go with the Stock rims that come on a 2005 WK Laredo, and get 255/75/17 BFG KM1s, with an OME Lift kit, will I need spacers to clear the tires? Or will I be fine?

I want to get a set of Moabs, but thy require spacers for sure. I just want to know if my stock rims need them for my desired tire size.

ya they probably would. If you like your stock rims that much then you can get spidertrax spacers. they are top of the line. Just really expensive

You could also go with 245/75 tires. I think some people are running them on here with out any problems with the bolt or the pinch weld. I can't remember who. Search the threads.

According to the sticky at the top of the thread page, 255/70/17 is the biggest you can run without moding with spacers or trimming the bolt.

If I go with the Spidertrax 1 and 1/4 will I need to trim the bolt or fold the pinch weld?

If you get 1.25" spacers then yes, you will probably have to do the pinch weld. If you went with .25" spacers then you should be fine.

I am running 245/75/17 on my 06 with the RC lift. I can almost get my pinky finger between the bolt and the tire with no spacer. With a 255 I am positive you would have to get spacers. Mine do rub on the sway bar and the frame at full lock. Doesn't touch the pinch weld though. There are some pictures on this thread http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/p...5-17-a-981615/

Right now I have 255/75R17 on mine stock, and with 1.5" spacers I don't rub at all until I hit a hard bump then you hear it. Without the spacers it would rub really badly. Good thing I finally got my lift kit in

This question comes up often and makes me wonder what .25" spacer is recommended. Would these be a sufficient fix to the bolt rub issue?

So, I am going with the 245/75/17 Wrangler Authority. Do you think it is worth messing with spacers, etc to fix the rubbing? Does the rubbing make the tire wear excessively on that area? Think I would have much rubbing off road? Can you just hammer out that area that it does rum, only at full lock right?

I have 255/70/R18 tires on mine and it rubs at little less then full lock and thats about it off road it does great haven't had much rubbing that i know of. i am saving up for spidertrax 1.25 inch spacers so i can pull into the tight parking spaces without tearing the tread off my tires. Your tire is 31.5 inches and mine is 32.1 so mine is a bit bigger so i am guessing rubbing shouldn't be to bad. But check out these things i found online for off roading watch the video. http://www.offroaders.com/directory/...illowtrack.htm
