Re: 05 WK 2" Rough Country Lift

WELCOME and what kind of help are you looking for, type, size, brands? Typically people with 2" lifts go with a 265/70-17 A/T or M/T tire. Everyone has there favorite brands. You could go with a little smaller tire like a 255/70. Or a 245/75 is a little skinny but same OD as the 265/70. With the 265/70 and 245/75 you will probably have some rubbing to the inner wheelwell when turning. There is a fix for that, just search around here.

Re: 05 WK 2" Rough Country Lift

I'm looking for something that will look good and light offroad, so preferably A/T's I'm also not looking to spend 1000$, juist something with some aggresiveness and a good tire.

General Grabber AT2's mounted and balanced cost me $900 out the door from my local GoodYear Center.

Check them out!

Re: 05 WK 2" Rough Country Lift

I got my Cooper AT3's for 145/tire, also has a 50,000 mile warranty. So far I love them. Great for DD and a little weekend fun!

My choice would be Falken Wild Peak or Rocky Mountain (exclusive to Discount Tire but same as Wild Peak and a little cheaper).

Be sure and post pics after you get everything installed.
