the recommended tire size for the 2 inch lift is 265/70/17 your probably going to have to do the pinch weld mod possibly some wheel spacers and u might even have to roll your fenders.... let me know if you decide to go that rout im curious my self to see if theyll fit especially with such an agressive tire

If this is for off road and not street looks get the 17s. You will have a larger tire option with a 17" wheel also.

yeah i agree with omelet, id look to go 17s much much better tire options and most off roaders with a wk use 17s

Good call.
