Re: question for you wk owners.

You "should" be fine with that size. Most can get away with 255/75/17 which would be a hair taller and maybe a bit wider(mm or so..). I don't think you'll have an issue. Technically the two sizes I listed ate identical bit with the bigger rim I believe you'll gain a bit more leeway.

I've got 255/70/17s w a 2.5" RC lift and 1.5" wheel spacers. They fit well, but you can go to 265/70/18 (if they have it) You'll want to do the "pinch weld" mod to avoid a lil rubbing. I will def go bigger for my next tires
