I was lost in Chevy but found my way to Jeep (It's like lego for big kids) Anyhow I bought a stock but clean 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with 5.7L


I was looking to replace the tires for quite some time now and realized 245/65/17 was a commuter wagon in the Jeep world. Pondering that for a while I noticed oil spots underneath the drivers tire, at first I thought it was brake fluid at first. Upon inspection I found the strut was having a meltdown. Now that I knew the suspension had to be ripped apart I thought ah ha (Much to my wifes chagrin) so since I was going deep I figured 2" was in order from Rough country.


Now I'm at tire store chasing down deals last week and get a great price for 265/70/17 BFG KO2's. I pulled the trigger and had them put on


Now here's were my rookie knowledge comes in. I'm not rubbing anything per-say but that bolt behind the tire is looming large over the nice new rubbers like "Ya, I want to shred these new front tires" LOL
So before I go any further I thought I would join in with people that know and have some fun with this (Not like it hasn't been ask 1000 times before)

If the bolt isn't touching now, it won't touch. Don't worry about it. If you're worried, grab a set of 1.25" wheel spacers and be done with it

Its been about a month and I've made some pretty good highway runs and no issues. Only if your in a parking lot and you need to go to full lock does it touch. Other than that it rides just fine.
