What tire size for stock suspension?
 
Whats size destination A/Ts is everyone fitting under their jeeps with stock suspension. Right now the tires I have are 245/65/17 and everything seems to fit fine and not rub at all, but the tires are also pretty bald. So I am looking to buy some new tires and these destinations sound like the way to go but they dont have them in the size that I have now. The two sizes that I am looking at right now are 245/70/17 and 255/65/17.

I have noticed that a few guys have fit 255/70/17s on the stock suspension with what they say is very little rubbing at full lock. Would I be able to fit a 255/65/17 without any rubbing? I wouldnt mind having a little extra width but making sure that the tire wont rub or get cut up on some sheet metal is my top priority. What size tires have you guys fit on the stock suspension?

Check my signature. These tires are as big as you can totally stock with no rubbing at all from what I understand.

Did you have to trim the front valance to make the tires clear or did you just do that to be safe?

Just for looks. I like how it shows more tire, plus it does give a little bit more ground clearance.

I have 245/65/17 Dest. AT's . Got them at a Firestone store, and you should be able to get the OEM size from them too.
