Question These tires work??

I have an 07 Commander and a set of 275/70R17 Goodyear wrangler mtr tires. Was wondering with a 2" lift would these tires be able to work on stock rims without any problems?? Would appreciate any advice, Thanks/..

Those tires will fit on the stock wheels, however 1.25 or 1.5 inch wheel spacers will be needed to clear the ball joint bolt. Also due to the size, youll definately have to bend over the pinch weld and re mold the inner plastic fender well. After that youll probablly have to see how close the tires are to the pinch weld area and take an angle grinder to the area where it is rubbing. If you plan on taking your XK off road, your definately going to have major rubbing. However with an angle grinder/sawzall you can fix that easily.

Just curious, are the they old MT/R's or the new MT/R's with Kevlar. Also are they brand new or used?

Since there slightly used, you might be able to get away with just bending over the pinch weld and re molding the plastic inner fender well. Those tires new are only about 1/2 inch taller then the 265/70's so the tire would only sit about 1/4 inch closer to the pinch weld.

You can fit them with the 2 inch lift, but you'll have to trim so you dont have rubbing.

If you can get a 4 inch lift you would be better off though and wouldnt have to do any trimming.

While on the subject of tires rubbing, I noticed 07JeepXK that you are running 265/70/17 tires with the 2 inch lift. I have the 2.25 lift with the same size hankooks. When off road do you have any rubbing with shock travel? I just bought this jeep and was wondering. I plan on taking it on some trails this weekend and just wanted to know how careful i should be when the shocks compress if there is any possibility of rubbing.
Thanks
Ryan

If you havent bent the pinnch weld or have spacers then you will have sme rubbing when you flex a bit... ust take it nice and slow and you should be ok.

again refer to the sticky posted by 07 under the wheels and tires sub-forum.
