The wheels/tires that you are refering to are on the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. The Tires that come on the Rubicon are 255/75R17 BF Goodrich Mud Terrains. To fit that size tire you would need at least a 2 inch lift. Also those Rubicon wheels wont clear the Jeep Commander front brake caliper's without wheel spacers.

The Tires that come on the Rubicon are 255/75R17 BF Goodrich Mud Terrains.The only thing you need to do is pull back the inner fender skirt about 1/2 inch.the inner skirt is just a thin rubber piece.Pulled it back with wire ties. No rubbing at all.

You wrote exactly what I wrote two posts higher in this thread. However you didn't mention that a 2 inch lift is needed.

And if you keep the Rubicon rims you will need spacers like 07JeepXK also mentioned.
