spacers needed with rubicon's and 245's and 2in lift? UPDATE! NEED SOME HELP!

i found a great deal on a full set of five 2012 rubicon rims. i will be going for a 2in spacer lift and looking to stick with close to stock tire size, nothing more then 255. would i be able to run a 245/75 on a stock rubicon rim, with no spacing with a 2in lift? im looking to run a mild tire for daily driving with weekend fun.

thanks

Rubicon wheels wont bolt directly on our Jeeps. You need at least a 1/4 inch wheel spacer up front to clear the brake caliper bracket. With a lift, you can run 245/75's with the stock rubicon rim (but like mentioned before will still need at least a 1/4 inch spacers up front to clear caliper bracket)

Thanks for the reply. After some research and thinking i think I'm going to run near stock rims and just go for a 255/75/17 tire with 1.5in spacers and if I can get one a RC 2in lift. I'm still waiting on a call back to see if there is one a available for order. My tire guy is trying to get me to go with a 265/70 but I don't know f it will fit with the 2in lift and 1.5in spacers? Any imput. From what. Have seen the 255 selections are decent and are a good fit for these jeeps

Huge help. Looks like the 255 is going to be my selection. I still want the spacers. Have yet to hear back from my guy about the kit but I'm hoping it will be in stock. Ill be ordering the spacers tonight after I do some much needed riding on my supermoto.

Only if you want to run the 4" superlift OR you like less tire options.

What's your time line to get this done? I would stick with Spidertrax spacers. They are $99 a pair but they pop up on here used for sale occasionally. I bought mine used from someone on here and have had them on for a year with no problems.

no real time frame..im the kind of guy who is fairly impulsive and loves to have things now rather than later. but at the moment i have two other projects that im in the middle of and frankly the commander is fine the way it is until spring.

first in order would have to be my loved SM. shes in the middle of a winter overhaul and as of tonight shes about 75% the BMW behind it is my second. the front end needs to be pulled off for me to replace the coolant overflow and the idle pulley needs replaced. and while im in there a few other goodies will be going in.
