Quick question before I pull the trigger on some new tires

Hey guys, I've been searching around these forums and others for awhile now and I've been getting conflicting info so I figured I would just ask. I've got the Everest Cast Aluminum wheels on my 08 Overland (17x7.5" with backspacing of 6.25" and offset 50.8mm). I'm looking at Cooper Discoverer stt's. Would I be able to fit 285/70-17 with 1.5" spacers, 2" Rustys lift and the pinch weld mod? Would that clear up the rubbing issues? I know I've seen 295's with a 2" but I haven't been able to find much info on it. I want to make sure there will be enough room for articulation with those tires. Thanks in advance!

Did you by chance ask Rusty's? I bet they have a pretty good handle what will fit and what won't with their lifts.

Yeah I called already. He said 285s will probably be good but needed to "recommend" to me 265s. I'm gonna call again to verify.
