I'm in the same situation as Pete. I purchased my 06 Commander used and when looking into purchasing new tires noticed my commander currently has Dunlop AT20's 265 65 17R's on it. I'm looking at purchasing Goodyear Fortera Triple Treds. After seeing what is currently on my commander I'm torn between purchasin the Triple Treds in 245 65 17R's or 265 65 17R's
Hmmm. So people are fitting 265/65's on their stock commanders without rubbing?? Not sure how that is possible. Prior to my new setup I had 265/70's and even with a 2 inch lift and pinch weld mod I still rubbed every once and a while off road. You might not have rubbing on road but if you were to take it off road and flex it out I bet you would rub like crazy. All XK with 17 inch wheels came stock with 245/65R17's. Look at the plackard on the inside the drives side door.

Two months ago I put 265/65/17 on my 2006 XK Falken Wild Peaks, which are the same as the Rocky Mountain. However I have a 2" Daystar leveling kit with no spacers, and even like that i get some rubbing (although very little) when fully flexed and wheel turned. I also would like to see how they do not rub stock.
