255/75 X 17" tires on 2" lift

Has anybody tried the Wrangler size tires on the Commander with a spacer and if so where are the rub issues?

Thanks 07JeepXK, I have at last found some steel rims in Aust that are 17 X 8 + 30 offset and they fit 265/70's really well, just some very slight rubbing on the firewall side of the plastic inner. So the 265/70 is probably a good choice. However there is a lot of Wrangler guys changing their standard 255/75's and therefore a lot of cheap 255/75's around. I am just not sure with the narrower tread and taller sidewall where the rub problem manifests itself. CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHY JEEP DIDN'T MAKE THE COMMANDER TAKE SENSIBLE TIRES.
