Edit. I just read the link from the post above. That guy has the 265/60/18 and it looks like no lift. So they should work. And fill in the wheel well better.
Yes, I currently have a stock suspension on my WK with the Crossteks. I do have Spidertrax 1.5" spacers though. I am not sure if that wide of a tire would rub or not on stock wheels without spacers...other experts would have to weigh in on that. I did a quick measurement with a measuring tape, and the tires are roughly 30.5" x 10.5". I just did a search on ntb.com, and they do carry the Nitto Crosstek in 245/60R18. There is a killer buy 2 get 2 free deal on these through September 5th.

This link might help. Nitto Crossteks were purchased. I really like those stock chrome 18s btw.
Thanks. I do like the style of the wheels. I'm not a fan of chrome though, so I will be changing them to black chrome shortly.

Re: Tires?!?!?

Again, thanks for all the replies.. I'm curious about the tire sizing though, would I be able to put 255/55r18 instead of the 245/60r18 on without problems or performing any mods, etc..?? From what I found, the 255/55r18 tire size would be 10mm wider, but the diameter would be 13.5mm smaller.. Would there be any downside to changing to a different size?? --C

Crestwood1001 is an unknown quantity at this point
That middle number is the tire wall height, I can't imagine that would cause any issues other then the speedo being a hair off.

My 05 4.7 was tiny stock, I forget the size but I put 255/70/17's on it with no mods. When I do the new shocks, 2 inch lift, spidertrax spacers and cut the bolt and pinch weld ill be able to fit 265/75/17's no problem, could prob run 275/80/17's just fine (if they make that size, can't look at work lol)

Re: Tires?!?!?

I had the same exact setup as you, GC with 245 60/18. I just put on General Grabber At2 255 60/18 no rubbing. Tire is slightly larger than stock, but is very close to the bolt because it's an aggressive thread.
