Stock height, new Spacers, now which tires?

Iíve picked up a set of Spidertrax 1.5Ē spacers and now wouldnít mind looking into a bigger tire. Iím keeping a running search on Craigslist to see if anything interesting pops up, but Iím wondering what size tires can I fit with these kind of spacers? Ideally Iíd like to find a size that after lifting (BB) the tires donít look like little donut tires. I was hoping to find a set of Moabs with the Rubicon 255/70 (or 75 Ė canít remember, searching for both) but Iím instead finding some others that sound interesting. I found a set of Goodyear Wranglers and others in a 265/70/17 to go on my Ronin IIís, but donít know if theyíll fit. I donít have the bolt trimmed (shouldnít matter with the spacers) and no pinch weld yet (rollin stock rubbers so no need to up to this point) so looking for some input.

May be tough to fit the 265/70 without a budget boost. I'm sure you can do it though somehow.

you will be rubbing that front PW for sure and maybe other things front and rear as well if you still at stock height.

I just picked up a set of Falken Rocky Mountain ATS tires. I got the 265/70/17's. They were only $127 a piece at Discount Tire. They look super wide and have an aggressive tread. They'd look great with spacers and I'm planning on picking up a set of the Spidertrax soon.
