I apologize if I misunderstood the question. Larger tires will fit on the stock wheels just fine, especially the 265/70/17s you are discussing. Some have said they can fit 265s on the stock setup and just do the pinch weld modification -- no UCA bolt trimming necessary. Others have said that it wants to hit the UCA bolt so they need to trim the bolt or add spacers. This all depends on the tread profile.
Your stock wheels will work just fine for you if you are ok test fitting and possible adding spacers if necessary. If you want to get a new set of tires, then go for it. My point is that it isn't necessary.

The Commander wheels work great as per photo below.
The 265/70/17 tyres fit nicely without any modifications at all. If you do put that size tyre on the original wheels, you will need some modifications.
Yes xkjeeps is wrong. You dont need to measure, you can see the offset stamped on the back of your wheel the next time you rotate your tires.
Thanks for the info. Does that mean, when I lift, I can go with 265/70/17 without spacers on my commander or are there other suspension differences that would still require spacers? I may still go with spacers for the stance, but I want to know is it needed or not. I have the 17" chrome wheels so I'll make sure it's stamped. Thanks.
