Re: What tire size for a 2" daystar lift?

Hi- I also have a 2" daystar lift. I believe that Daystar recommends up to a 31" tire with no other modifications (bolt trimming, spacers, etc)...

Re: What tire size for a 2" daystar lift?

Good to hear no rubbing . I just purchased a rough country 2 inch lift (spacers), and a set of 265-70-17 bfg T-A ko2. And i was worried of rubbing. A lot of people say they will some say no... i hope its ok..

You will hit the pinch weld for sure. I suggest folding it back and heat molding your plastic fender well trim accordingly.

I had the RC lift and 265/70/17 on JK Moab's with 1.25" spacers and i rubbed big time at full lock prior to the pinch weld mod.
