265/70-17 Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2, MB Wheels V-Drive, RR 2.25" lift

This is the perfect set up in my opinion for the Jeep Commander. I spent about 6 weeks trying to decide on Wheels and Tires for this Jeep once I installed my RR 2.25" lift. These wheels have a 25 offset so I did not have to purchase spacers. The tires are about 1/4" from the wheel well when turned and I have not had any issues with rubbing. (I have not been offroad yet, I am going to Moab in about a month.) And I had discount tire test to see if this wheel and tire would fit in my spare tire storage area and it fit like a glove. I am going to order a 5th wheel and tire tomorrow for a spare. Has anyone done the same and rotated in the 5th wheel every 6k miles? Thoughts on that? Let me know what you guys think of the pics.

Take a picture of the jeep up the side so people can see how far they stick out. Have you done any mods to the pinch weld or wheel well? Running that off set you might dare I say should have rubbing issues once you start to flex it out especially if you disconnect the sway bars. Looks good and have fun at moab and remember no pictures it didn't happen.

Looks like you did a lot of work and it paid off. Really nice set-up and good looking rig. Take plenty of pics during your trip. Welcome to the forum.

SAL- No I have not done any mods to the wheel well or pinch weld at this point. I just put these tires and wheels on today. To be honest I am new to this whole Jeep thing, this is my first Jeep and I have had it about 7 months. I have not thought about disconnecting the sway bars... I am not planning on doing any "difficult" trails. (to start anyway). I am planning on a easy trail next weekend close by my house just to test things out. It’s an old Pony Express Trail near SLC.

I will take a side pic tomorrow so you can see how far the wheel sticks out.

Jeep5253- Thanks for the thread. It makes sense to rotate every 3-4k miles w/ the 5th tire. Thanks.

Well make sure you take it easy until you see whats going to rub and where its rubbing. Both the pinch weld and wheel well mods are real simple. We did the pinch weld mod on a friends WK on the trail because he never did it and when we hit the trails he started rubbing and cutting into the tire. If you can find somewhere to flex out before you go that would be ideal.

SAL, did your friend have his sway bars connected? Do you have any good instructions on the wheel well, and pinch weld mod?

Can you tell me more about the sway bars... If I take them off how does that effect my every day driving? And I assume if I take them off I am able to do more difficult trails? Thanks for the help

Disconnecting the sway bar allows the wheels to travel more and makes the ride a little more comfortable. You don't take it out just disconnect it. I don't recommend running on the streets other then short trips to get to other trails without the sway bar connected. Also don't for get to air down your tires for the trails another thing we do for a more comfortable ride, better traction and safer for the tire. For rocks and ledges I go down to 15PSI.

Check this thread out for the PINCH WELD MOD

Also he did not have his sway bar disconnected and he was only rubbing on one tire the passenger rear. So you never know where you will rub until you get out there and flex the jeep.

For the wheel well just heat it up with a heat gun not to hot and push it back with a 2x4 or hammer. I just took a saw to mine and cut the spots out it rubbed in myself.
