Tire upgrade

Whats up Jeep world, first question of many to come. Just got a 2005 Grand Cherokee 5.7 limited. Awesome truck. I want to upgrade the tire size. I just got a 2 inch Rough Country lift (spacers) for it. I have 235-65-17 on it. I would like to put 265-70-17 BF goodrich Ta Ko2's on. Will they fit without rubbing. Thanks for any help.

Not to poke a sleeping bear, but wouldn't he have to worry about UCA bolt clearance w/o wheel spacers? And though they may fit, (s)he may have some rubbing issues at full lock w/o spacers and/or pinch weld mod...

Re: Tire upgrade

I'm with you. Probably should look into spacers and the pinch weld.
