Who's Running 275/65/18 MT Tires ?

Posted this over in the WK2 section, but it appears that almost all the discussion is with people running 20's and 22's on the street.

Looking for a M/T tire for my '13 GC Trailhawk, rim size is 18x8JX56.4
Test fitted the '14 Rubi wheel/ tire combo (they're a 17" rim) but they hit the caliper.

Ok... seems there are no LT M/T tires in the following ranges: 265/60/18 (30.5", stock size on the '13 Trailhawk), 265/65/18 (31.6"), or 255/70/18 (32.1").

I did find M/T tires in 275/65/18 (~32.3") like the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac LT275/65R18 E/10PR.

Anyone running this size on there WK2 with the QL and actually flexed the suspension at full steering lock at the different suspension settings? Does it touch/rub any hard parts?

Thanks,

XJ97Sport (It's a Black 2 door, 5 speed with OME lift, re-geared and F/R ARB lockers, and some other stuff)

I have cooper STMaxx 275/65R18 (32.2 inch) on a MY14 with QL, fitted to Jeep 18inch original spec rims. No rubbing, except at full lock at park height. The rear is close to rubbing on the wheel well liner at park height, but had no problems on/off road.
