HELP ! Tire size for 2in lift

Hey y’all, new here to the forum. I have a 04 WJ 4.0 QT2. & I wanna lift her up... after thinking it over I’ve decided I wanna go with a 2/2.5 in lift for right now . So my question is what size A/Ts should I run on the stock 16in rims. I believe I wanna stay under 30in if it looks good. I’m debating between 245/70 or 235/75 or 255/70... I don’t want any rubbing or trimming.

Any advice?

There was a chart on here somewhere a while back. I believe for a 2-2.5" lift with no trimming you could go as big as a 245/70 (29.5") or a 245/75 (30.5") w/o trimming.

You can easily run 245/70. Mine came straight from Detroit with that size.

Yeah I know that’s what is factory just didn’t know if it’d look goofy. I’m buying tires today or tomorrow and life is coming soon. So I wanna make sure I get the right size

Welcome to JF. My '04 has a 2.5" BB, new shocks, and new isolators. My first set of tires were Toyo Open Country AT2 265-70/16's. A little rubbing on the front fender liner, nothing major.

A few months ago I bought new wheels and another set of Toyo's, this time I went with 265-65/17's. I had to trim part of the lower bumper cover, probably .75-1" or so. It scrubbed like heck.

I don't do any hardcore offroading, just some north GA forest service roads and camping.

I'll be upgrading to coil springs from Kolak soon. Hit him up if you need any parts, he's the go-to guy with great prices and service.

You could probably run 245/75/16 without trimming and without rubbing.
