NEED HELP! 245/75/17 duratracs

Will 245/75/17 duratracs fit on my commander with no lift? I need to know before I make a mistake. I have the tires and will be installing them tomorrow. Any advice.

Some 245/75R17's will fit without a lift. For example the BFGoodrich All Terrains. Other's wont fit because they wont clear the ball joint bolt. Then if you try to add spacers to clear the ball joint bolt you will have crazy rubbing issues when you turn the steering wheel. So basically it's hit or miss. Let us know how everything turns out. Worse case senerio you spend $150 and buy a 2 inch spacer lift.

I just bolted up a set of 245/75/17 Duratracs on Tuesday. My XK is lifted 2 inches. No rubbing. These puppies are much nosier than my summer rollers (Silent Armors)... I do not see how to get around lifting if you run a tire this tall. Even lifted, your alignment can affect rubbing issues. I bet that is why some lifted XK's rub and some do not.

Beside the hum, you will love the tires. They look every bit as nasty as they are. I figure I am good for the 10 feet (or more) of snow we get on average over a normal winter here in upstate NY...

I just noticed you are running AEV's with a special offset. That is probably why you are rubbing. No issues with these on my OEM take-off wheels.

The AEV wheels are made specifically for the commander. That tire and wheel package only sits out 0.7 inches further then the stock setup. It doesnt get any better then that. Thats half the distance of guys running wheel spacers.

Do you have the specs on those wheels( AEV )off the top of your head?
