Tires

I have a2015 JK Sport with factory 17 inch wheels, tires and suspension. I know I can put 285/70 17 tires on the factory rims but will they rub?

mounted tires never equal what they claim, some far less. so that is more a real 32 perhaps. might rub at lock a wee bit. might even rub a we bit if you could flex it enough. That would depend on use, most dont use their jeeps that hard really.

its not a 12.5 wide that helps. I think it will work myself, in 98% of use. maybe even 100% use worst case off road in the deepest flex it could do that tends to be on two wheels not three, Cross flexed. this puts the full weight on two ties. That wont happen any unless you have the front sway Discoed anyway.

I just had Cooper 285/70R17 installed. No problem, just a slightly larger foot print, havenít been out to the beach yet
