question for you wk owners.
 
New tires are in the works, 255-70-18 bf goodrich rugged terrain, with a 2 inch RC lift. i feel like possible control arm bolt cutting, but i feel like they will work. any opinions? rubbing? etc

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 :)
