Hello, I put the 2.5 in lift/leveling kit on my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It has the stock 18in rims on it now. I was going to keep the stock rims, I was gonna run either 275/65/18 or 285/65/18 on it. I was wondering if anyone else did this or if this will work without any rubbing.

A lift will not change the tire diameter capacities of the JGC. With or without a lift, you're limited to ~32" in diameter without physical modification of the pinch welds; ~33 if you do the modifications. A lift might provide you with a visual change you like, but is static relative to tire size. If you do upsize from OEM tire diameter, you'll also need to change your spare to a tire of the same diameter. Your speedo and odo will no longer be accurate and that can only be changed by investing in some software.
