Anyone running 265-70-17s on 4.5 backspace wheels?

I'm wanting to know if I need a leveling lift, or 2.5" lift to get a set of 265-70-17 Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ P3s on 17" Pro Comp Alloys to fit on a 2013 Grand Cherokee Limited wk2.

Didn't know if someone had a similar setup preferably without a lift at stock height. I can find people running similar tire size, but running stock wheels still.

Here is what I have dimension wise... **SEE ATTACHED PICTURES**

I haven't drove or did a turn test because I don't have the proper lug nuts yet (ordered), so I didn't want to mess anything up.

Did you get your answer? I'm thinking of a similar replacement on my 2017 Summit.
Thanks

I ended up getting rid of that wheel set when I sold my Commander, so those went with it.

Eventually I sucked it up and bought an overpriced RRO 2.5 lift, paid about 375 to have it installed at a local truck shop, and went with a set of 17" Rubicon Hard Rock wheels, 255-75-17 Goodyear Duratracs (the wheel tire combo can be installed and ran on a stock setup FYI)

I recently added 4 Spidertrax spacers (WHS024), and that threw my spacing out to cause my tires to rub on the front pinch welds even with the lift.. the simple fix for that is to cut about a 3 inch wide piece of the felt out covering the pinch weld, hit it with a grinder/cutting wheel, and hammer in the tabs you just made.. coat it good with anti rust spray, and then undercoating, and black paint to help it blend in..

Normally I don't care for stock wheels AT ALL, but something about the Rubicon wheels are interesting looking to me, it all lines up flush and gets lots of compliments.
