Lift with 265/65/17?

Hey everyone.
I was looking to get my vehicle lifted slightly. My tires are 265/65/17 Hankook Dynapro ATM and I was thinking a nice lift would work. I have Bilstein HD's ready to go but was wondering if I could go with the OME springs or would that not be a good idea/recommended. I was originally looking towards the Rough Country 2" kit but it is my understanding that the springs and strut replacement would be the best bet. I would be doing at the most moderate off road in the future.

I also notice most recommended tire size for 2 - 3 inch lifts are 265/70/17. I went with my tire size as I was in need of new tires after breaking the tpms valve on one and then the spare got pierced with a rock in the side wall and the shop told me that 265/65/17's would be the largest I could go without any rubbing. I am always open to suggestions. Thanks for any feedback

This is stock height with 265/65/17 BFG TA KO's

On stock rims you will have to cut the bolt and you will have a very minor rub at full lock.

Re: Lift with 265/65/17?

I actually already have 265/65/17 Dynapro ATM's. There is no rub at all at stock height, no modification required. Since I have had those put on I have added spidertrax wheelspacers. I was really wondering if there would be issues with getting a lift such as OME on these tires as far as stability? I do understand with any lift you do have increased rollover. I was thinking that I might be better off with a RC 2" lift as opposed to the spring lift with OME. I am also not sure if the OME springs would work/be recommended for use with Bilstein HD's.
