Max tire size with RRO Lift?

I will be installing my RRO lift within the next few weeks (finally after a ton of delays). I want to buy new rubber so it doesn't look funny after being lifted. Can anyone tell me what tire size would best fit without rubbing issues? I want something a bit beefier but not too extreme since this jeep sees more street driving for now. I'm on stock rims for now. Don't have the cash to drop on new wheels real soon. I also will add the longer Monroe LLs to the rear and Rusty's strut plates to the front.

i would say 265/70/17s... and you may need to use wheel spacers to clear the bolt as well as do the pinch weld mod to avoid any rubbing at full lock. Thats the typical procedure when going with the 2" BB lift.

Re: Max tire size with RRO Lift?

Thanks for the input. I'll have to start looking into those large tires and making those mods. I definitely want something bigger in the tire realm.

Re: Max tire size with RRO Lift?

you can fit 285's if you really want but if you if you spend most of the time on road, I would stick with 265/70/17.

Re: Max tire size with RRO Lift?

Thanks for the input guys. I'll probably end up with 265s since I do mostly road driving right now.

285s would look better- just do the front pinch weld and adjust the rear bumpstops and youll be good to go.

So what are you saying my jeep doesn't look good. JK
I agree, that is why I am saving up for 285's.

Nope won't regret it... Love the squatty look on these jeeps with 285s and minimal amount of lift.
