BDS 2" WK lift and tire size question
Does anyone have the BDS 2" lift for their WK? ( I was wondering what size tire you were able to fit on this lift. I was thinking about buying the lift kit this weekend and wanted to put 265's on it. Thanks!

I don't know about the WK but I have a WJ with the same lift kit (BDS 2") and have zero problems running 265/70/17's. I don't think you will have a problem....

I have 265/70/17's with no lift on a 2005 wk. but i did remove the wheel well i think its called on the front tires. It was rubbing a little when i turn. Also if and when i have a heavy load and I'm riding fast when i hit a dip the rear tires hit. but other than that i love it.

Yea bud I just put 265/70/17s on with offset rims and they rub on the inside of the wheel arch. Do the pinch weld mod for the rear of the front wheel arch and redrill one 6mm hole for the lower plug on the front plastic( not 100% necessary) clears no problem.
As said though at stock height when you go over big bumps with a bit of speed it hits the top of the wheel arch just.
No issues at all on the rear wheels.

O by the way unless you have offset rims or wheel spacers you will not fit that size tyre. I think biggest you can go without offsetting is 255/65/17 maybe 255/70/17 depending on tyre make but you will have to trim the upper control arm bolt down a little
