I have a 2007 Jeep GC Laredo 2WD Laredo V6 3.7L w/ a 2" front lift only. I'm running the stock 17" wheels w/ no spacers. Can I fit a 265/70/17 tire w/ out any rubbing?

All terrain or mud tires?

Not sure yet... Could go either way. I may be able to buy a used set of Nitto Terra Grapplers in 265/70/17. Would those fit with out spacers on a stock wheel with just a 2" lift in the front? No lift in the rear.

I believe you will need spacers to clear the UCA bolt and wheel spacers. I have Dunlop fierce attitude m-t 265-70-17 with 1.5" wheel spacers and they rub slightly on the wheel well not hitting any metal just the plastic. I have the rro 2.5" lift

Thanks for the input. If that's the case, what if I go with a 255/70/17? Will that work with no spacers?
Or I could go with a 1.25" wheel spacer with that 265, but will that tire size stick out past the wheel well in any way? I don't want that look as I want the mods to look super subtle. Can you run just a spacer in the front and not the rear? The fronts look like they sit inside the wheel well more than the rears.

1.25 will be barely outside the wheel well but it gives it a beefier stance. 255's should work just fine for you. This is with 1.5" spacers and 265's
Thanks for the pics! What kind of tires are you running?

No problem! They are Dunlop fierce attitude m/t. They are a great tire! During the winter I was driving threw fields with 2-3 foot of snow and now they just tear threw the mud. Also they are very quiet for mud tire

I have 265/70r17 on mine with a rc lift and all I did was cut the Uca bolt and everything clears just fine.
