Would you put on Black Rock Series 909B Type D - Satin Matte Black?

I am thinking about putting my wife's 245/70/17 Terra's on these:

Do you guys think I will have any rubbing with a RC lift? Am I on the right track thinking I can run a zero offset with 30 inch tires and a 4.5 inch BS? I am looking for something that will sit flush if not just outside the flares.

That tire/wheel package will work perfect with the 2 inch RC lift. That package will only stick out 0.1 inches further then my setup (265/70's and 1.25 inch wheel spacers). The only difference is my tires are a little over an inch taller then yours.


Tire 1..........Tire 2
Tire size 265/70-17 ..........245/70-17
Section width 265 mm (10.4'') ..........245 mm (9.6'')
Sidewall 186 mm (7.3'') ..........172 mm (6.8'')
Tire diameter 804 mm (31.7'') ..........776 mm (30.6'')

Speedometer Assuming that this is OEM tire and speedometer readings are correct When speedometer reads 60mph (96.6km/h) actual speed will be 57.9mph (93.2km/h): 3.5% slower.
Clearance: Package 1 Package 2
Suspension Assuming that this is OEM wheel/tire and there is no any problems with clearance on both sides 100% clear (leaves even more room than OEM)
Fenders Package will stick out 3 mm (0.1'') farther. Acceptable for most cars.
Wheelwells 100% clear (leaves even more room than OEM)

Do you have any rubbing with your set up? I have thought and looked at this all day and I cant see why it wouldn't work but I am no expert. Thats why I came to the experts! To throw in another variable has anyone run 245's on 9 inch wide wheels. If so I am also going to look at the 17x9 XD Addicts....17x9, +18 offset, and a 5.71 backspacing. I really need to find a all black(or close to it) wheel that will widen the stance with zero rubbing. I HATE the way the factory wheels look with the RC lift.

I really dont have any rubbing with my setup unless totally flexed out while off roading. Only then does it rub a little on the flares in the rear. Since you would be installing a tire that is an inch shorter, you wont have any issues at all.

As for the 245's on a 9 inch wide wheel, I wouldnt recommend it. I know it has been done before and its possible to mount that tire size on that wheel but I feel that its not a smart idea. The wheel is just to wide for that size tire. Especially since other 245mm wide tires are generally more narrow then the stock Fortera 245's. Again, just my opinion.

That is kinda why I went with a 245/70. We want to be able to flex out but I dont want any rubbing at all. A goal is to attend a JeepSkool in the future and I dont want any rubbing at any point.
So it sounds like a 17x8 is what I need to stay with then. I would prefer that anyways just because that is what our 245's are designed for. Can anyone give me insight on what rubs on the caliper with the steel wheels? The wheel calculator says they should fit? I sent Black Rock a message on 2/18 asking them if they would fit but no response. Thats kinda a let down. At this point we just want all black wheels (or mostly black) that will be flush with the flares and no rubbing at all. Man this is fustrating...grrrr.

OK so the Black Rocks are out. This is a response I got from them...

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately we do not have a wheel that
will work on your Commander without any issues. The only way you can get
one of our wheels to work would be to run our Type 8 Series 997 in a
17x8" with 4.5" of backspacing and a 5/16" spacer. But this would make
the wheels stick out nearly 2.25" more than stock and we do not suggest
running a spacer.


Thanks,

Cody Currie

Square one........thanks 07JeepXK

Just run a spacer, many of us do with no problems.

I may be able to run another XD wheel we wanted. Time will tell. My dealer is going to give me 175 for the five spoke gray and polished wheels and 175 for the polished 5 spoke wheel. Told me $250 (with the other wheels included) for a new set of Spy's mounted. Can I get more money out of factory wheels than that?
