Laredo 4x2 Tire Advice

I have a stock WK2 4x2 Lardeo and I'm at a point for new tires. Currently running P245/70-17 and I'm thinking of going with P265/70-17. I'm wondering if I'm going to run into a rubbing issues with rubbing. I don't do any mudding, but I enjoy trail riding and camping. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Laredo 4x2 Tire Advice

Here's a bump to ya! I'd like to know what tire sizes us 17" wheel guys can use on our stock WK2s

Any ideas folks?

Re: Laredo 4x2 Tire Advice

From what I've read across this forum and JeepForums:

255/70/17
255/75/17
265/65/17 (currently what I'm running)
& 265/70/17

will all fit, stock. I tried using 265/70/17 with my 1.25" spacers though, and ran into clearance issues on the front, so I sized down a bit to the 65's. I think 265/70 will be close to rubbing at full lock regardless, but I'm not positive. Just an FYI.

Hope that helps.
