245/70/17 tires 3/4 inch leveling spacers

Hi,

I want to put 245/70/17 inch bridgestone dueler revo 2's on my 01 wj limited. I have the upcountry suspension and was going to add a set of 3/4 inch spring spacers. I want to make sure I do not have any rubbing on full lockout and also do frequent towing of boat so worried about the back as well. Is anyone running this set up or know if I will have any issues?

Thanks,

Scott

I have 245/70/16 on my jeep, no up country, and they didn't rub. I now have the 3/4 inch spacers. Since you have the up country and looking to add the spacers, you will have about 1.5-2 inches over stock so I would imagine they will fit. Hope this helps, and hopefully some others will have input with 17 inch rims

Great thanks for the reply! That's what I figured with 3/4 spacers and those tires about 1.5 inches more then stock height. Don't do much offroading just looking for some tires with a little more size and tread. I Have read nothing but good reviews on the revos.

I love my revo's! I also have the 245/70/17's on my 01 Limited, with up-country. I havent done much towing yet but some minor off roading and the rub is minimal to nothing even at full lock, there is a slight mark on my inner fender liner up front but I have never actually heard it rub. You will love those tires, I have yet to get stuck or lose control when driving through all the snow we got in Minnesota this year. Edit: with the exception of flooring it around a few corners when nobody else was around......

Good to know. Then it's settled I am getting them. Going to do the 3/4 lift still as well, can't hurt!

Thanks!
