Tire size rubbing?

I currently have the Black Mamba MR-1 rims and tire size is 245-65-17 on my 06wk I am trying to see if any other jeep have the size I want to get with a stock suspension 255-70-17 ? Don't want to order that size and it will be rubbing against the wheel well... Thanks Jeep brother

Re: Tire size rubbing?

I dont have those rims but I managed to stuff a 265/70/17 under mine with a 5/16 spacer. I still plan on doing the pinch weld but for road work it is just fine

You could fit 265/70/17 on the stock suspension with that wheel. Just do the pinch weld.

Do you think I would need a pinch weld with the 255/70/17

Finally I found someone who has similar concerns....I want 265/70/17 but it won't fit cuz its rubbing all over the suspension. The tire guys told me to buy wheels but I don't want to do that. What's pinch weld? Will that fit the 265s if I'm not doing any off road adventures (yet)?

Sorry Alex..I totally hijacked your thread I just have a few days to figure it out. Please don't get mad at me

If this helps even a tad bit yesterday I went to my local tire shop and luckily I made good friends with the tire shop owner since his son was a marine but straight to the point he let me try all four tires (255/70/17) on my jeep it looked great but for some odd reason the two front tires were rubbing all in the wheel well.. He let me try (245/70/17 BF Goodrich) on my Jeep and they were barely rubbing in the wheel well he said best thing to do is just cut some of the plastic where the wheel is rubbing and it should be fine not hitting any major vehicle parts! So I'm thinking of running those BF Goodrich tires (245/70/17)

It also depends on the offset of your rims luckily I got the mamba mr1 wheels so that helps . Good luck hope this helped just don't get tires that will help you modify your jeep much. I've been on this forum for a while and I know some guys on here that have the tire size you want usually have their jeep with a lift.

I definitely need a better offset on the wheels to fit 265/70..my best friend told me to go with spacers but I'm not too confident with 50/50 experiences since I have my cousins nieces and nephews in my Jeep most of the time.

Everything seemed to be okay except that it was sitting right on the suspension. The guys at the tire place told me I need -6 offset to (maybe) fit those tires. I have their temporary tires on, which are 245/70/17 Firestone, cuz they screwed up with giving me some info, so for now I'm riding on their expense till they fix the issues. It fits great. No rubbing or anything. I had 245/65/17 prior. I just think it looks too small.

I have the 2 inch leveling kit which did raise my Jeep, enough to see and feel a difference in height. I want more meat less wheel, if that makes sense. But I want more stance. It'll look good and do good offroad.

I guess I can just settle for 245/70s till I put on the superlift and than make decisions of purchasing wheels and doing other mods that goes along with the bigger tires. I don't know! I need a man to figure it out for me. I'm tired of thinking lol!

I forgot to mention the wheels the tire guys said I can pick from..I'm looking at the two black ones only because I don't like flashy things. and I'm paying about $150 less than what they would sell it for, out the door in addition to the tires I've purchased. Seems like a great deal but I just don't think I want to purchase new wheels. Ahhhh!!!!

I agree spacers are an OPTION but I find them sketch other can tell you something different but I prefer paying for rims with a good offset and not second guessing myself when I'm driving

I prefer the black rims I hate chrome and my jeep doesn't even have chrome (besides the emblems which I decide on PDing later) as long as you're not paying two fees for the current tires and the ones you're getting then you should be fine hope I helped even a bit

Btw question when you were running the 245/70 did the tire cover most of the wheel well and I agree 245/65 is small looking on the jeeps lol

I love black rims but it has to be the right kind. Some people go a bit overboard but to all their own...and thanks for being so informative. You have been very helpful to me!!! Now to use my knowledge against the tire shop guys! Lol

It doesn't cover most of the wheel well IMHO...I guess it just might be me because I want bigger tires lol...it looks almost the same as 245/65 to me...I took a few pixies for ya. I already parked it in the garage and there's another vehicle on the other side so I had to improvise lol
