Since I'll probably go to the larger size tire without the leveling done, initially anyway. Thanks for any info!
The level lifts the front end 1 3/4" so yes it makes a difference, had I installed tires before the lift the tires would have been 3/4" closer to the underside of the wheel well since they have that much more side wall. I hope that helps.

Re: RRO LEVEL KIT & COOPER ZEON LTZs

Well I got about 9000mi on mine and they Look great, Perform good in the snow but with the 1 1/4" spacers I kinda feel bad for the Goof that rides to close to the rear in the snow / slush the tire tread Kicks up a rooster and you can tell when they get on the side of me, They give me the one finger wave As for MPG Loss you can expect 3-4 mpg loss but hey they look good the ride IMO is better and with the cold weather we have had I have not put air in them Unlike the Stock tires if the temp got below 25 the light came on telling me that the tires were Low and now that we (Chicago area) have Craters Oooops Pot holes Everywhere hitting them is not to bad with the + size tires

Re: RRO LEVEL KIT & COOPER ZEON LTZs

Quick question to you guys (sorry for the slight high jack CC) since you both have the mods I want to do (RRO level and 275s) thought I'd ask here. I actually leased my vehicle, but I got a really good deal so I might end up buying at lease end, but if I don't can the RRO level, be easily taking out. I'm sure I can't return the car with the level kit installed.

You can take it out but for the cost of kit and install it makes no sense. I would leave it and they probably won't even notice, most dealers send an inspector out a month prior to lease end to evaluate damage so if he doesn't pick up on it I would just leave it as a gift for the next owner! The tires and spacers would def come off tho.

Re: RRO LEVEL KIT & COOPER ZEON LTZs

CC your rear suspension is stock right? I'm pretty sure you didn't do anything to it, just wanted to make sure. There was a thread with someone who said their Zeon 275 rubbed in the rear on stock.

Thanks.

Maybe the other jeep owner was pushing it really hard off road. You and I are city slickers so probably more beach off road than other types.

Subbie are you completely on stock suspension with OE wheels? What kind of drving have you done to test flexing? Any links to pics?

Stock wheels stock suspension. Full lock no rub, full flex no rub. This topic has been discussed numerous times and can be found using the search button. The biggest you can fit without rub is 275/55/20
