Without lift and/or spacers/different offset rims,they will rub. I have RRO 2.5" lift+35mm offset rims and 275/70-18 Cooper Discoverer S/T Maxx rubber.

Here is an answer about, but with Quadralift, mine is Laredo standard

You must be lucky. I tried 275X65X18 BFG AT KO. They rubbed both in front of the tire at normal ride height. Now have 265X65X18 and they clear but are close.

It won't rub being that it's only .4" wider and 1.6" taller than the OEM tire.

I run a 305/40/22 which is a massive 12" wide and 1.1" taller than OEM. Since the 275/65 is much skinnier, it buys you a little room in the height dept.

I also run Quadralift, so if you have a non-QL suspension, then you have even more room.

Use this to play with tire sizes:

Custom rims, wheel tire packages for your ride - RIMSnTIRES.com

Thank You, Only i have a question. Which is the OEM Wheels Offset???

I dont know if on offroad may rub 275/65 18 tires,

"Wheelwells clearance:Will fill out the wheelwell by extra 20 mm. Make sure that you have enough room under the fender. If not, consider lower profiles or smaller rims.

Stock Laredo wheel is 18x8 with a +56 offset. I think they'll fit.

I have 275/65/R18 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs on 2011 Limited 5.7L with stock rims, no mods and have not had any rubbing, but the speedometer is lower by 3mph.
