265/65/18 BFG KO's on my 08 WK limited no lift?

I am at a point of buying new tires and want to get something a little bigger but I am unsure how big of a tire I can put on without a lift. I am running 18" Sahara rims and stock 245/60/18 tires. I saw a post of someone else asking this same question and they were wanting to put 265/65/18 BFG KO's as well and there was a mix of discussion about it fitting. Has anyone out there done this? Any help would be greatly appreciated and photos of examples would be even better!
Thanks!

took me 3 months to find tires, Same thing like your going thru. I wanted a mean looking tire. Yep there going to rub if you go 265/65/18.. i work at a dealership so i asked to check into this.. there are many fourms about tires, crazy,, some say they dont rub, some say they do.. remember these tires are not cheep, so i rather be safe then sorry.

It has already been a journey searching the web and reading the blogs about tires. You nailed it right on the head. I want the look but it is not easy to do without the lift and serious mods. I read a lot of great things about the nittos. Thanks for the advice. I am going to look in to them.

They will fit but you will need spacers. Another member put a Nitto Crosstek 265/65/18 on his wk and he needed spacers. what width i dont know but most likely at least 1" or 1.25. If i read his thread right they would not fit w/o the spacers.
