Correct me on suspension + tires

Ok so I'm planning on getting the Daystar poly lift. Its 2" in the front and 1.25" in the back. I'm also getting bilsteins which is another .375". So I'm lifting it 2.375 in the front and 1.625" in the back. Now the stock tires are 235/65-17. Which is 29" diameter. Now if I put on 265/70-17 which is a 31.6" diameter, will I rub at full turn? Has anyone tried this combo before?

Re: Correct me on suspension + tires

I know that 265/65/17 (30.8") will almost touch at full turn with no lift. With just 2.3" lift in the front I'd say your going to rub at full turn unless you go with a different offset on your rims.
