Tires

What is the most aggressive AT tire, without lifting my 2005 WK and keeping the stock wheels?

Paroxysm is not using the stock wheels. You can't follow his advice unless you have his wheels. Try a 245/7o General Grabber AT2. I use those on my otherwise stock Jeep and am quite happy.

um... im using a JK 17" which requires a spacer(1/4" to be exact) to clear the caliper, so YES you can use a 255/70 on your stock rims.


check out the wheel/tire combo thread, im not the only one running this size AT stock height. your 245/75s are 31.5x9.7... my 255/70s are 31x10. lol they'll fit fine

I ran 245/70-17 General Grabber AT2's on my wk stock, with a 1/4" strut spacer and with the rc lift. They do not rub at all.
It is a good size for a totally stock wk.

255's will be my next set of at2's. I'm not interested in messing with wheel spacers.

Are they 245/70's or 245/75's LT's?

245/70's - edited my original post. I don't think a 75 would work without cutting the UCA bolt.

I have thought about the 245/75's but the weight penalty would suck. Ive never had a sidewall durability issue with my p series.
